God's Great Outdoors - Matt McPherson

July 30, 2018

This week’s Trail To Adventure! Radio Program has the listeners going back into the Badger State as this recorded interview was done at the Prayz Network in Sparta, Wisconsin. Our host Gerry has hooked up with Matt McPherson, the owner of Mathews Bows, located in the same city as the radio station. Together, from an engineering/design prospective, the two men look at the Creation around us including the entire Universe, giving credit to our Creator God who spoke it into existence! “Intelligent Design” is the topic as Matt, a design engineer, invites listeners to not just accept what evolutionists say, but mindfully look at the many facts revealing that there has to be a “Designer” in all that exists. Matt presents a number of excellent arguments that can help “break the ice” that ask those around us to examine some truths and begin to think intelligently in the matter!

On this week’s Trail To Adventure! Program, Gerry is in the “Cheese Head” State, dropping in at the Lake Lounger pontoon boat factory and visiting with owner, Scott Marrier. This relatively new business is located in Withee, Wisconsin and was started to give folks a more stable place to hang out on the lake then just a dock to sit on. However, the Lake Lounger pontoon boats began to “take off” so to speak, as folks discovered just how very stable they are. Their large carrying ability is due to oversize logs (pontoons) opening the door to having an enter family aboard and even heavy wheelchairs. Scott Marrier has worked in the marine industry for many years and has a big list of manufactures he’s designed for. Scott shares how he and his family are working with veterans in a number of ways to help them, win their trust and give them hope in Christ Jesus!

This week’s interview is with Mark Looy as he shares about the Answers in Genesis ministry and Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. A great way to evangelize those who come to visit and Mark relates about this apologetic ministry focusing on the importance of the first book of the Bible. The two also talk about the Ark Encounter located 40 miles away from the Museum in Williamstown, Kentucky. This life size exhibit’s having a fantastic draw of visitors, with a high number of attendees needing a relationship with their Creator God. These attractions are an hour’s drive from God’s Great Outdoors Family Fun Fossil Hunt’s in August. This happens in Ohio and Dr. John Whitmore, who teaches young earth geology at Cedarville University comes and shares with the fossil hunters, discussing the proof Noah’s flood.

On this Trail To Adventure! interview, a visit to Dr. John Whitmore’s office at Cedarville University in Ohio, Gerry got to meet Dr. Steve Austin. As an undergrad geology student at Washington State, Dr. Austin was able to explore probably the most significant geological event in the 20th century, the eruption of Mt. Saint Helen’s. This was a turning point for him as he was able to watch and discover firsthand how this catastrophe affected the landscape, including a creation of a one-fortieth scale of the Grand Canyon, in only one day. During this time Dr. Austin switched from a Christian “old earth” geologist, to a “young earth” geologist, believing the biblical account of 6000 years of earth’s age. All from seeing layer upon layer of earth that was laid down by volcanic eruptions in minutes, not hundreds of thousands of years as he had been taught.

This week’s interview has Gerry at the Ark Encounter with Ken Ham, Founder of Answers In Genesis and the Creation Museum. Located in Williamstown, Kentucky, Gerry’s guest shares about being a school teacher in Australia and liked how he was challenged on creation vs. evolution and what the Bible said on the issue. This led to Ken’s passion to present the truth of the book of Genesis and the real facts of what science reveals about God’s universe and our earth. Ken unveils how studies done by Answers In Genesis discovered why people doubt God’s Word, because of evolution and “the millions of years” yet there are many items people can learn to use to defend God’s Word. A trip to see the Ark that is the size as described in God’s Word can make the Bible become real and possible in a visitor's eyes!

The topic on this week’s Trail To Adventure! is on Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Gerry visits with Billy (Catfish) Parker and his wife Laura at the C’Meer Deer booth during the annual Archery Trade Assn. Show that was held in Indianapolis, Indiana in February of 2015. Both of these outdoor recreationalists share stories of the adventures and the battle that is encountered by a tiny insect at least eight months of the year. Ticks! Laura has been infected with both Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, but early detection helped in her treatment being a quick ordeal. Billy however, went a number of years before his Lyme Disease was discovered causing extended and daily treatments that lasted many months. Their hope is as they tell this story; is it will help keep others from having to go through the same mess they experienced!

This week’s Trail To Adventure! interview is with Dr. Danny Faulkner at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky as he shares about Answers in Genesis ministry’s Planetarium. This museum is a great way to evangelize those who come to visit with you as it’s an apologetic ministry focusing on the importance of the first book of the Bible. Danny is the resident astronomy expert and shares with Gerry and the listeners on the vastness of the Universe, giving an easily understood example to wrap one’s mind around. He also puts a wrench in the gears of those conspiracy believers who say we never went to the moon. Fact is that because of the Apollo Lunar Missions, we now know how far we are from the moon and that the distance is expanding. It is this information that allows us to do backward math calculations to realistically consider the age relationships between the earth and its moon.

One this week’s Trail To Adventure! the topic is God’s Great Outdoors Fun Family Fossil Hunt as Gerry is in Ohio and interviews Dr. John Whitmore about the adventure. The event takes place annually in August at Caesar Creek State Park and those attending can keep the fossils that they find. How hard is it to find these fossils? Dr. Whitmore, who teaches geology at Cedarville University, has even had two blind students take his class and they were able to find fossils at this Ohio location. Dr. John Whitmore is considered the world’s expert on fossilized fish and this is from his extensive work in the Green River area of Wyoming. He shares on his expeditions to that area of North America on research projects he does. The two also discuss all the evidence of Noah’s flood at Caesar Creek and how there are scientists who misinterpret many of the facts of this biblical event.

This week’s Trail To Adventure! interview has Gerry back in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, in Brainerd, Minnesota, and a visit to Lindner Media Studios. Gerry visits with Al & Mary Lindner, and Al tells about the journey of he and his brother Ron’s business activities through the years and how they got to where they are today. Al shares on how they came to doing the The Angling Edge television show and the direction from God to be more and more active in sharing the Gospel. Mary talks of her medical journey of the past 20 years as she is a breast cancer survivor and has had three heart operations. Mary has had so many different medical devises implanted in her body she calls herself the “Bionic Women.” The key point she relates to the listeners is to use God’s Word and have faith that we are in His capable hands!

On this week’s Trail To Adventure! we’ll discover how doing a one day Trail To Adventure! Pastor and Layman conference in International Falls, Minnesota opened the door to a ministry up north, above the Canadian Border. Gerry is visiting with Ted and Cheryl Barker, who live in a small community above the US city of International Falls and is doing activity based outdoor outreach in their area. Ted tells how he’d attended that Trail To Adventure conference with others from Canada and then they began to use what they’d learned back at home. Cheryl relates what she’s seen from their efforts and its impact on those attending events. Both also reflect on the ministry of the fly-in fishing camp in the area called Rushing Wind and how the owners are all about sharing the Creator God, Jesus Christ!

On this Trail To Adventure! traveling to speak at a Game Dinner in Wisconsin, he hooked up with Daryl Christensen. Daryl is a past God’s Great Outdoors Board of Directors member and spent most of his life in the professional walleye fishing arena. He shares how when the economic crash of 2008 took place, it hit the fishing industry hard. This caused Daryl to move to an early retirement from his profession, going in a different direction. Having been one of Wisconsin’s leading members of the state’s bird watchers, he began doing studies for the Department of Natural Recourses. So, besides getting to speak at Game Dinners, this has opened doors to present the Creator, Jesus Christ to those who enjoy ornithology.
