CONFOUND THE WISE MINISTRY NEWS LETTER
For those of you that are receiving this information for the first time I would like to invite you to go to the Confound The Wise Ministry web site www.confoundthewise.org to get an idea what Susan and I have been doing since we left Mount Hermon. For those who have been involved in this ministry all along, through prayer and financial support, as well as, those who are new I will try to bring you up to date, currently.
I have recently been invited to join a new ministry sponsored by Pastor Chuck Smith at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. The ministry is called Logos Research Associates. It is a ministry composed of Creation Scientists in an effort to bring together top Creation Scientists in one place to work together. The web site is: www.logosresearchassociates.org
This past year was an exciting and busy year for Susan and me, as well as. for Confound The Wise Ministries. I was invited to write an article in Answers Magazine at Answers In Genesis Ministries in Florence Kentucky. It was published in the July-September issue. You can get a copy or read the article at www.AnswersMagazine.com or www.answersingenesis.org. In the spring we were invited to speak at several churches and other venues in California and we were well received. As a result of that tour we have received and accepted several speaking engagements for this next year. We had an awesome time traveling and speaking through out the Mid-West from July through September. We traveled from Arizona to our first speaking stop in Durango Colorado then on to Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Kentucky and back to Iowa and then to Minnesota for three weeks then to Wisconsin and finished in North and South Dakota. It was a very emotional and rewarding time for us when we visited Wofford Kentucky, where I spent my childhood. It was fun introducing Susan to my relatives and show her where I grew up. I was invited to speak at Wofford Baptist Church where I attended as a child it had been 55 years since I had been back to this Church.
After returning to Arizona at the end of September we were invited to speak in Tucson where we spent 9 days. I spoke at the University of Arizona and several
public and Christian High Schools as well as the youth group and college group at Calvary Chapel Tucson. While in Tucson I was invited to speak for the Arizona Origins Society as well. The pastor at Calvary Chapel Tucson arranged to have a professional film crew shoot over 18 hours of video and it is being edited to produce several new DVDs to be available through Confound The Wise Ministry in January 2010
We were continually blessed all along the way by the number of young people and adults who made first time commitments to the Lord Jesus Christ. They were able, for the first time, to justify the book of Genesis and Science. We are still receiving
e-mails advising us of other commitments that we were unaware of.
We are currently in contact with many of the pastors that we met this spring and summer to schedule lectures next year. Also, as a result of the contacts we made
along the way we have been invited to speak at a Creation Conference in London England November 24th through the 30th. The Conference is sponsored by Morriell Ministry in England. Another blessing that we have received is a trip to Egypt and Israel December 2nd through the 18th. We will fly from England to Egypt and Israel as guests of Pastor Chik Chikallis, the Pastor at Calvary Chapel Saint Paul, Minnesota.
As you can see, God has BLESSED this Ministry greatly and it is because of Christians like you, who have bathed us in Prayer as well as financial support that we are able to continue serving God through this Ministry.
Susan and I thank you from our hearts, may God Bless you all.
Rick and Susan Oliver
