Testimonies in "Letters to the President"
by John D. Morris, Ph.D.
The following excerpts are from letters received in recent weeks by ICR President Henry Morris. I believe these testimonies will encourage our supporters as they do us. These are typical of many received daily, both in the mail and at our seminars and other meetings.
"As I read the Acts & Facts, I marvel at the amount of work being done by such a small staff. I know of no sound gospel work being done in the states that even remotely compares with the work you are doing for our Lord and His Name in these last days."
"I studied The Genesis Flood at Biola College in 1964, and later read it to our children while they were in third and fifth grade. Now they excel in math and science and we believe we owe much to you for their success."

"Let me express to you the enrichment and blessing Days of Praise has been to me! The challenging and thought-provoking patterns of content with which they are filled are spiritually invigorating."
"I devour each of the newsletters you send, order books from you to better educate myself and my family, and donate to your ministry financially whenever possible.... I thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dr. Morris, for the ministry of ICR."
"I have been praising God for the past year for helping me to discover Dr. Morris' books. I studied geology in college and was spiritually crippled by the 'fact' of evolution for more than 20 years.... I read What is Creation Science ? the way a man dying of thirst drinks water. I can't tell you what this has done for my faith."
"I went about 15 years as an unbelieving 'Christian' looking and seeking and hoping for a god, but . . . my mind, knowledge, and intellect just wouldn't allow me to do so. I was challenged to face the issue of my unbelief and . . . was given a small list of books to begin my quest, . . . including your book Scientific Creationism which I am reading for my third time. I was left dumfounded.... Now for the first time in my life—I believed!"
"For the last 2-1/2 years I have been sharing the gospel with my Mormon friend. She happens to be majoring in civil engineering (at Virginia Tech). I mentioned that one of the foremost creationist scientists used to be head of her department, a guy named Morris. Guess whose name is on her hydraulics textbook! . . . (She) called me to see where to get your book on Job.... Believe it or not, it was the theology in the book, and not any evidence, that was a major influence on her. . . . On New Year's Eve, shortly after midnight, after another two hours of long distance, she received Christ into her life!"
"I was an avid atheist, a dedicated evolutionist and materialist just before the days which brought me into acquaintance with the ICR good news. This is, indeed, purely the work of the Savior, Jesus, that brought me from the darkest world to the brilliant world with Jesus.... My spiritual father (is) Dr. Henry Morris.... Presently I have begun writing an article on creation versus evolution to be presented on my campus .... Sooner or later, I'm embarking on the business of translating one of Dr. Morris books into my tongue, Amharic."
