Sharing the Wonders of God with a Local Grand Canyon Tour Company

Recently I had the amazing opportunity to give a presentation on the Biblical Creation perspective we teach each day here at the Grand Canyon, the same sort of teaching you’ll hear on any of our rim tours or river trips.  The only difference was this was not to our guests on...
