schools and churches.

Many lives were reached for the Lord during this time. Danny became a youth leader at one of the local Baptist churches. As a youth leader he continued to bring different churches together no matter the denomination.
"He just want to reach souls for Jesus".

Pastors Danny and Yvonne later were called to become officers in the Salvation Army for 14 years. While in the Salvation Army they developed Barrio Breakthru Ministries.
Barrio Breakthru Ministries continued to have concerts, outreaches, car shows and rallies in
large scale where 100's were reached for the Lord.

Pastor Danny also started the radio ministry Barrio Breakthru Jams. At one point the program was on the air every weekend for 6 hrs a night. The radio ministry reahced into the prisons and jails. Barrio Breakthru Jams began receiving mail which grew to 100's of letters a week. The letters contained testimonies, poems and shout outs for family and friends which were read on the air. Occasionally inmates/ prisoners would send crafts that they hand personally hand crafted for Barrio Breakthru Jams.

The Pastors left the Salvation Army in 2002. They continued with their independant ministry of Barrio Breakthru Ministries, which is still going strong to this day.

Despite the fact that Pastor Danny had a stroke in Oct. of 2019 and is still recovering. The ministry is still going strong with the help of his children, family and congregation who are supporting the ministry to move forward.

This class is all about what it means to go all in and be a member of Breakthru Ministries.
