The guest is Todd Stiddleburg who shares how he stepped out in faith to go full time with this deer nutrition, feed and food plot business he has started in business 1987. Todd left a great position with a very large company, giving up some really good perks to make the move, but he knew God was with him and family as they made this life altering transition.

This week’s interview has Gerry at the Ark Encounter with, Ken Ham, Founder of the 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 visitors eyes!

On this week’s Trail To Adventure! Gerry joins up with Joni Eareckson Tada in Xenia, Ohio as the two relive the memory of Joni’s close encounter with a large black bear on a camping trip. Marshmallows as it turns out was all the bear was after at this hair raising encounter.

Additionally, Joni tells about the special summer camps they have across the nation for physically and mentally disabled young people and adults. Her call is for men who might be willing to come along side these people and be volunteers at these summer events.

As Gerry visits with this week’s guest Keith Cline the two men are at the Rushing Wind Retreat Center in Ontario, Canada during a couple’s marriage event. Keith tells how as a rural mail carrier in north central Nebraska, he listens to God’s Great Outdoors while running his route. Hearing of the couples fishing retreats, he asked his wife Lori if she’d want to go “up there” for their 35th wedding anniversary. “Yes!” was her answer and booking, they landed the honeymoon cabin “to boot!” Keith also shares about the Special Youth Challenge deer & spring turkey hunts he is a part of in Nebraska and takes place in other locations across the nation. Put on for disabled and terminally ill youngsters, the ministry is seeing youth and adults come to Jesus Christ. Plus, Keith relates on the Select Arrow Ministry that allows him to speak across the country on Isaiah 49:2, “…he made me into a polished arrow…” and how God shapes us all.

On this Trail To Adventure! Gerry’s in Petersburg, KY and connected with this week’s guest Robert Smith. Robert’s story is about being blessed by God on an all-day whitetail deer hunt where only a half hour before dark he shot a monster buck. No ordinary deer, this typical ten pointer harvested on November 11th of 2000 with his rifle in northern Kentucky became a new state record buck. Robert, realizing that the Creator is truly the “Lord of the harvest” was thankful for this animal. Being what he calls “a meat hunter” when it came to the antlers value, it wasn’t a big deal. When an antler collector offered to buy the set, Robert knew the money could be used for an upcoming mission’s trip his church youth group was taking to Jamaica. Selling them was giving back to God, resulting in salvations abroad!

On this Trail To Adventure! this week’s interview takes place during a Fisher’s of Men Retreat at Rushing Wind Retreat Center in Ontario, Canada. The guest Jeff Swan reveals how skeptical he was the first year attending, as his church group had labeled the event a “mission’s trip”. He thought “Yeah, it’s really all about fishing, I’m sure!” But, did he discover how wrong he was and how God spoke to both he and his wife, the first year they attended. This is an outreach that is changing lives for eternity and listeners may consider this as something for those in their lives too! Jeff also reflects the importance of being the kind of man or women that God wants us to be.

This is a ministry that takes young people on hunting and fishing trips in lieu of their parents, who have no idea how to do outdoor activities or are not in their lives, yet the kids, want to get started. This outreach was started in Powell, Wyoming where Ron lives, but has expanded to other areas in the USA and is making a difference in the lives of these young people, as the program is set up to present the Gospel.
