Thanks for stopping by to view our website. We have had so many requests from our ministry's friends and partners to have a website. Finally it is here!
Merilee and I welcome you to our home page. We are in the learning stages of developing this site so check back later for new updates
Looking back on 2011 we see it was a year filled with many challenges, but also many blessings. We rejoice in the 45 people who responded to the invitation for prayer during our meetings. Of these- 25 people prayed to receive Jesus Christ, 2 rededicated their lives to Christ and 18 were for other prayer needs. Merilee and I have now witnessed over 12,000 children and adults commit their lives to Christ in our meetings these past 32 years! Praise the Lord!
Merilee and I are happy to announce the birth and adoption of our first grandchild! Weston Lee Ottoson was born on Thursday, March 29th and the adoption was finalized on Monday, April 2nd!! Weston weighed 7 lbs. 7 oz. and was 19 3/4". As you would expect proud grandparents to say-- He is a cutie!(But he really is!!!) After spending 5 days in NICU(neo-natal intensive care) he went home healthy(prayers answered!) with his grateful daddy and mommy, Jordan and Candace Ottoson, on Monday, April 2nd.
We praise the Lord for the gift of life the birth mother has given to Weston and this precious gift of love from our heavenly Father to Jordan and Candace and all of us who love them. Please pray for our son, daughter-in-law and grandson and also pray for the birth mother who chose to entrust her son to Jordan and Candace. What an incredible gift!
We are now scheduling concerts and other meetings for 2012. Our new Southern Gospel concert has been very well received by churches.

For over 32 years our ministry has been "reaching our world for Jesus Christ!" We want to thank our friends and partners for their faithful prayer and financial support that has enabled our ministry to continue in full-time evangelistic outreach for so many years.
The theme for our ministry is "Changed Lives Change The World!" We believe that lives changed by the transforming grace of Jesus Christ can make a powerful impact on our world. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation..." -2 Corinthians 5:17a
Joyfully serving Jesus!
Danny & Merilee
