Yesterday when I returned from a great visit to Answers in Genesis, a letter from my great friend Dr. Robert Porter was in the mail box. It was a two page missile loaded with joyful information. The letter was topped off, in my opinion, with this; “Ninety-one year-old Charlotte and I have no plans to get married. We agree that we can live without the intimacy that comes with marriage. To see us together you might think we are an “old married couple.” Some residents call us “teenagers,” and you can guess why. We really enjoy each other’s company. And yes, we are still taking college courses.”
The organization, Answers in Genesis, has produced “Biology 101,” “Chemistry 101,” and “Body of Evidence-Anatomy.” “We have highly recommended these courses.”
Note the picture of Robert Porter and Charlotte Horner on the web version of this article.
Robert and Charlotte have been on God’s Earth for a while, but in spirit and outlook they are younger than many 25 year olds.
Robert and Charlotte saturate their minds with scripture and prayer while “Stimulating brain activity viewing these courses.”
Of course Robert and Charlotte enjoy a strong faith/relationship with Jesus Christ. These two children of faith rejoice in the truth of Psalms 71:9, “Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.” In Christ we may be “forever young.”
