Memorials

Some of the ICR donors have sent in special gifts "in memory of" Dr. H. M. Morris. Memorials are a long cherished custom in Christian nations--since the Scriptures recognize that "special" events deserve preservation beyond the "memory" of the existing generation. A classic example is the "memorial" erected by Joshua in the place where they lodged by the Jordan River to commemorate the crossing of the Jordan by Israel near Jericho (Joshua 4:1-8).

The ICR board authorized an active Center of education and leadership training to be built as a "memorial" to honor and further the "dream" of Dr. Morris' life-long ministry.

For nearly two years, under the guidance of Dr. Morris III, ICR has explored the possibility of opening such a "Center" in Dallas, Texas, as Dr. Henry Morris III and his wife Jan moved to Dallas. The Lord has graciously confirmed the effort with generous contributions toward the initial needs, and the open acceptance of ICR's ministry by many of the major churches and ministries in the Dallas area.

The new online science education program is underway, and additional personnel are in place in the Dallas area as the ministry expands. We are actively seeing a "footprint" (building, land) that will house the growing activities. The "memorial fund" will go toward that new work. Donations should be submitted to the El Cajon address below.

If you have questions about the new outreach and educational ministries in Dallas, e-mail Dr. Morris III or write him directly at the temporary offices: 8915 Forest Hills Drive, Irving, TX 75063.
