While out on the road on teaching circuits, all of the speakers at AOI try to take every opportunity to teach about God and His Creation. The following is a rough breakdown of more-or-less typical week of ministry in the field:

Thursday – A day and evening very much like Wednesday … Answer questions and sell literature … Load up books and projector equipment, and fossils … Get to host family about 10:15 pm … Get to sleep about 11-12 pm.
