There is nothing like being one of God’s kids. He has been so faithful to us at every turn. It is no coincidence that we have found ourselves surrounded with the loving support of the HPS network. We see His hand in everything. Imagine Katy’s delight in also meeting Dr. Francis Collins last night (someone she had read about in her biology book). He is known around the world for mapping and sequencing human DNA. You can read more about him at www.genome.gov (click on “About NHGRI”, then “Director”). He is the Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute. He told Katy he had heard about her already! He also told her he was a Christian (had been an Athiest) and just finished a new book, called The Language of God in which he states, “God is most certainly not threatened by science, He made it all possible.” Katy is planning on reading his book and discussing it with him when she sees him in Bethesda.
After the evening was over we settled Katy in the back seat with a blanket and pillow and took her for a ride around the city. The White House was all lit up. The Washington monument was also. This is an amazing Country filled with amazing people. As marvelous as it all is to be a part of something like this, the best is yet to come. As our great God prepares a banquet for us just think about meeting Paul and Barnabas, the disciples, and the Samaritan woman. We’ll have all of eternity to discover scientific secrets, and those things that are hidden from us for now. What an exciting adventure!
Can this really be happening??
