Typical Teaching Week on the Road – pt 1

Studying the fossils

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:

 Monday and Tuesday – Travel to Ainsworth, NE. … Meet with church officials and get settled in with a host family (another 25 minutes of travel to their home).

 Wednesday – Have lunch and visitation with Pastor or members of the church (typical 2+ hours) … Get to church an hour early for set up  … 15 minutes teaching scripture with Eugene the puppet … 40 minutes teaching … 5 minutes teaching about hands-on event for break… 10-15 minute break (for attendees, not us) doing hands- on event (creation bracelets or fossil lab) , answering questions, selling books, and getting next presentation set up …… 40-45 minutes teaching  … Answer questions and sell literature … Get to host family about 9:45 pm … Get to sleep about 11-12 pm.
