days one and two

Florida Vacation

day one :: SeaWorld







day two :: WordSpring and visit with friends




each mannequin is dressed in garb sent over from their country...
you can push a button in front of each one to hear John 3:16 in their language...
the empty space closest to the camera on the left
represents the 3,000 languages that still do not have a Bible translation




the scroll at the top of the fountain reads (in Greek),
"He will lead them to springs of living water..."
Revelation 7:17b

translations in other languages are submersed in the basins of the fountain...



a learning center for the history of Bible translation


friends who we wish lived closer!
(notice how the two serious ones ended up together at one end...)

Gosh, all that in two days?? Looks like fun! Never heard of WordSpring but it looks really neat! As for the last pic, it brought a smile to my face!

Oooooh, it looks like you had so much fun! I look forward to more pictures. I've never heard of WordSpring...what a wonderful place to visit. Hmmm, whenever we make to Florida that'll be on my list of must-see places. Thanks for sharing.

cool beans! i'd love to visit wordspring...the translation of rev 7.17 on the bottom left of the fountain looks like it might be in hawaiian.

next time we're in florida, i know where we're headed!
