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.

Next month I will be traveling with my son Max and our production team to Israel to record a one-hour Youthbyte program. I am believing that God will direct all aspects of this trip. Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

We began to actively promote our Life Events this month, locally and internationally. Working in conjunction with already established networks of churches, we are bringing not only awareness to this problem but encouraging much needed dialogue between parents leaders and students.

Dear Family, Partners and Friends,

The temperature in Southern California is beginniing to spike and this means only one thing: head south of the equator to the nation of Brazil.

I will be leaving for the state of Rio in early June, excited to again be with friends and a generation who is hungry to know more abpout Jesus. It will be a fast paced two weeks with 2-3 services per day. It is exciting because I will be releasing more Youthbytes in Portuguese!

Our latest Youthbyte release “Traps” is scheduled to be released this summer. Yes, that is an actual bear trap

In February we began filming another Youtbyte episode entitled “Traps.” This is a piece that I have long wanted to create and we have stepped out to do it. Working with every sort of trap know to man, we discuss the traps that the enemeny sets for us and how we can, in Christ, see our lives set free in all areas.

Cambodia 2 discs set entitled “The Call” is in production and almost completed.

In November of last year we traveled to the nation of Cambodia and filmed an episode of Youthbytes that has been 10 years in the making. Having traveled to Cambodia for many years, I have had numerous ideas about using this nation as a back drop to share about the call of God on peoples lives. For two weeks we worked in oppressive heat and conditions that reminded me of a sauna, to create a tool that will provoke an honest response in the hearts of young and old concerning the plan that God has for each of us. As we put the finishngi touches on this episode I ask that you please continute to keep not only our outreaches in prayer, but our production schedule as well. We have a very limited staff in the production arena, 2 to be excact, and the amount of work and ideas that are generated and produced can only be acconplished by nothing less than a miracle from heaven, your prayers ensure we meet the dealines as they become clear. Thanks again for helping us stay on the creative cutting edge of media production.

HOME SWEET HOME

Max will be 15 this summer and is involved in music, water polo and skateboarding. He has had opportunities to lead worship at two different churches in town and it is great to see his gift begin to develop and mature on many levels.

Rhett is as active as any 12 year old should be. With soccer, snowboarding and school, he is constantly on the go.

Brazil is still at the forefront of our outreaches; we have the opportunity to travel back the state of Rio and participate in a series of monthly events during the 2013 calendar year. Should these plans finalize, we will have the opportunity to speak to hundreds of thousands of teens all over the nation. We are also releasing our 4th and final box of “Jovembytes” this year. After having a strong advertising push at Expo Crista in September, we are finalizing the printing and packagChad
