Dear Friends & Family, I hope this finds you doing well. I’m amazed that summer is again upon us. The boys will be out of school in a few weeks and they are already asking “what can we do this summer?” I think that this is the cry of every teen, even my own, looking for purpose and destiny in their lives. It is these cries that continually drive me to communicate God’s truth to as many as I possibly can. Last month we had two great opportunities to do just that. Our home church, The Rock here in Redlands, held their annual Pastors’ Conference and asked us to participate; our friends in the Four Square denomination invited us to be a part of their gathering in Anaheim as well. Both of these strategic events gave us the opportunity to expose not only our resources but the extent of our outreach globally. The response at each event was encouraging and many doors of opportunity were opened to us. As you know, I’m always looking for broadcast opportunities internationally, and without fail God always brings people across my path. Starting next month we will be translating our Youthbyte television program into the Albanian language which will then be aired on local stations in Albania and Kosovo. We will be leaving for Israel in early July for two weeks.
Our goal is to create 4 teaching sessions and a one hour television program. It has been many years since I have been in Israel and I am excited to be able to capture the sights and sounds of this fascinating city. Our APP development project is also proceeding nicely. We are currently formatting the video content and finishing the written devotional content. This 60-week devotional will be unique, providing teens in many different walks of life the ability to access our video material on any smart device. This project is scheduled to launch in the fall of this year. I am also focusing on our “Life Events” for the fall, both locally and internationally. I recently had our “Sea of Trees” video translated into Portuguese and am planning on strategically releasing it in Brazil later this year. This release combined with our local Life Event meetings will bring a much needed voice to the church and Christian communities. Please keep all we do in prayer! We love you in Jesus Name, Chad & Shay Daniel.
