Emzara, named after Noah’s Wife, has scaled back due to COVID restrictions, but still offers a great variety of delicious items in a friendly and spacious atmosphere. Gracie and Lauren being good sports in allowing us to take a picture of them with a life size replica of Ken Ham, founder of “Answers in Genesis” which operates both the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter. Kentucky is so blessed Bro. Ham, an Australian, chose it as both his home and that of the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter.(L-R) Lauren Stiep and Gracie Eiben enjoying one the exhibitsDawson Moore and Sara Cartwright “hamming” (as in Shem, “Ham” and Japheth–Noah’s sons) it up. 🙂The Way’s students and chaperones in front on the Ark where dropped off by shuttle bus. We were blessed to have Bro. Bobby and Sister Ronda Whitter and their Church youth group from near Cincinatti join us for the day. Bro. Bobby was Pastor of Hurricane Baptist Church in Trigg County for 2 years. Ronda was a wonderful, fantastic, magnificent, etc. volunteer at The Way while they were in Trigg County. Ronda now works for the Creation Museum and shared information with our students. One of hundreds of exhibits to illustrate how Noah was able to comply with GOD’s guidance in Genesis 6:20. Noah was commanded to bring animals “after their kind” into the Ark; not two of every animal e.g. two of the “cat kind” not two each of lions, tigers, leopards, etc. This plus probably bringing younger animals made the space available in the Ark enough.
