Dear Friends and Supporters,

Summer is ending and as usual Brazil is calling. I just returned from a two week, 3000-mile road trip through three states in the Northeast of the nation, Bahia, Sergipe and Pernambuco. Me, my interpreter David, our worship leader Caprini and our staff Vet Dean crammed our animal menagerie into our truck and completed 20 meetings in 15 days without any loss of life or limb! We worked hard to get to every event on time and God honored our faith and willingness to go where few people want to go. In every service the grace of God was made manifest as hundreds of young and old responded to the message of freedom and life in Christ! The reports are continuing to come in from pastors telling us that the freedom and deliverance received during our “Life Events” is continuing to produce fruit. Our message is simple; “Jesus wants to do good to you, regardless of how far you may fnd yourself away from Him.” The snake, the iguana and owl are all memorable examples we use to communicate the life-giving message of Jesus to a generation. 

We finally acquired a ministry vehicle to travel the nation and transport our exotic payload with ease!

I was excited to have my Biologist and Veterinarian friends come and help me communicate the truth of God’s Word through His “wild” creation!

As young and old responded in faith, Jesus met them at their place of need and imparted life and hope!

God opened an awesome door for us during these meetings. Correction officials in the state of Sergipe asked us to visit a maximum-security prison for violent teen offenders. Murderers, rapists and thieves, some as young as 12, crowded in cells of 15 or more, listened attentively as we shared the forgiveness found in Jesus! I could go one for hours about what God did on this trip, hundreds saved and set free as we shared the Gospel with boldness.

Thanks for helping us go! In Jesus Name- Chad Daniel
