Man Builds Noah's Ark

A man in Holland has built a to scale model of the Ark. (It is to scale, but 1/5 of the size of the original.)

He is sailing it in the canals and talking to children about the Bible.

He said: “I had a dream that Holland will become flooded. The next day, I found a book about Noah’s Ark in the bookshop, and since then, my dream has been to build the ark,” he said. “The design is by my wife, Bianca. She didn’t really want me to do this at all, but she said ‘If you’re going to anyway, it should look like this’.”

He goes on to say that he does not expect a world flood, as the rainbow is a promise that this will not happen again.

And a cute new story video showing the Ark. (She says it's 1/14th of the original! Either way, the original would have been quacking enormous!)
