What to know before you visit
The week of the 19th was filled with plenty of activity at the museum. The work continued outside on the waterfall, front gate and fence. Contractors started working on the sound and lighting in the theater and the electricians continued pulling wires through the entire space as well. The sound booth is coming together and in the next couple of weeks it will be finalized. Work continued throughout the Café and also down in the fabrication shop. Jessie Pié and Travis Wilson continued painting the cypress trees in the lobby.
On the 20th there was a fundraising event at the museum. This fundraising was a little different from others because part of it took place out on the golf course with Lee Janzen, PGA golfer. He put on a clinic and played a few holes with each of the teams. Lee has been an enthusiastic supporter of AiG and the Creation Museum. $10,000 was raised through this fundraising event.
As you may have seen on the AiG website, there was plenty of preparation taking place throughout the museum for the Katrina relief efforts. We were so excited to see how God blessed the efforts and to be able to have the space in the museum to put all of the backpacks and bags together.
Earlier this week on Ken Ham’s blog he shared the birth of Zade Nathan B. on Friday, September 23. Zade was several weeks early and he weighed 4 pounds 10 ounces, but he has been doing great. His father, Nathan, is a fabricator on the Museum Team and his mother, Tressa works in Customer Service. As Ken mentioned Tressa had some difficulties with the pregnancy, but she is now starting to recover and we praise God for His healing touch. We thank everyone for all of their prayers for this family.
Thanks again for joining us. We appreciate all of your prayers and support for the museum.
