Thrilling Response to Creation Expo at Prestonwood Baptist
by Lawrence E. Ford, Sr. *
What a delight to see the faces of youngsters hearing the Word of God! Knowing that nearly 7,000 kids here in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex were learning about God our Creator has been quite a blessing to ICR and those who worked behind the scenes in getting this special vacation Bible school ready.
As announced last week, Prestonwood Baptist Church held "Creation Expo" at two of their North Dallas campuses, impacting thousands of kids and their families with the truth of the Genesis record. Dr. Jack Graham, senior pastor at Prestonwood, commented:
Creation Expo is the most creative Vacation Bible School we have ever done. It has been a great way to teach kids about God the Creator through the inspiring sights and sounds of God's most awesome creations—the heavens, the human body, and some of the largest creatures to ever roam the earth. For the 6,500 children attending, many of whom are unchurched, this will be a VBS they will never forget. I am grateful for the Institute for Creation Research and the help provided to develop Creation Expo.
Here are some of the scenes captured by Prestonwood photographers at this year's VBS:
