A whole life turned around
Feedback 9 July 2004
A year or so ago, my daughter’s horseback riding instructor explained to her that the fleshy part on the back of the horse’s leg was a “toe” that through the evolutionary process became obsolete, so over a long period of time the horse lost the toe and the “nub” was all that was left. My homeschooled daughter came right home and told me what the instructor had said.
That next week my Creation magazine came in the mail and lo and behold, there was an article about horse’s “vestigal organs”! At the next lesson, I kindly brought up the subject. She responded that that was the standard answer in all of the texts, and not denying that, I began to explain that there were many “vestigial organs” in the human body which now we realize have very important functions. The conversation then led, ultimately, to a discussion of creation, which she said she believed in. She then asked me if she could read the article I refered to. I gladly gave her the magazine. The next week, she asked me if she could keep the magazine, as she wanted to read the whole thing. I said, “Certainly!”
We did not discuss the matter again until last night. She was telling me about her new church and said, “This is all because of you, you know.” I had no idea of what she was talking about. She went on to explain that she had walked away from God and had lots of problems in her life. Then I gave her “that magazine” and she began to read her Bible, and pray and go to church and her whole life has turned around. I was astonished, as I had not known any of this before. I felt led to write and encourage you that the message you are publishing is getting out and changing lives, to those we can’t even imagine are out there. Thank you for your work and may God continue to bless you 30, 60 and 100 fold.
