Don Sunshine Ministries has been privileged to touch tens of thousands of lives and see thousands come to faith in Jesus Christ through our teaching people how to share their faith in Christ every day...without fear, embarassment, or hesitation.

Jesus commanded His followers down through the ages to “Make disciples of all nations”.  So let me ask you a question, “How are you doing with that?”  If Jesus commanded us to make disciples and you are not sharing your faith and beginning the discipleship process, do you really believe that one day you’ll hear Him say, “Well done My good and faithful servant?”  As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to be His full time Ambassadors representing Him to the lost people in our lives. Yet for some reason most professing followers of Christ never share our faith in Christ with anyone!

The "Make a Difference” or "M.A.D. Live Event" can change that and help you to be obedient to this call on your life.  Don has taught over 500 times in 24 states and Canada. We have equipped over 30,000 people and have been blessed to see over 1,500 get saved at the Live Events. All praise, honor, and glory be to God!  For more information, please click on the “Speaking” tab above.

June 2018 Ministry Report

Hello Ministry Partners:

We had 2 MAD Events the first weekend of June.  That was it!  We trained 90 people and were blessed to see one lady give her life to Christ in repentance and faith!  Praise the Lord!  We received a few great testimonies which I will share below:

” I wasn’t supposed to be at the MAD event. I was supposed to be at a homeschool convention. That had wrapped up earlier for me on Friday. This allowed me to come to the MAD event. Between that event, Pastor’s challenging me and much prayer, I realize now that I’ve surrendered to the Lord but have allowed other people and life circumstances to derail me. I was meant to be at that event. That was a definite God intervention!  Thank you for doing the events that you do. Thank you for following the Lord’s calling in your life. You are making a radical difference in so many lives.“

“Oh wow!  I’ve been a missionary for almost 10 years and a believer for 18 years.  I have never had such practical, in depth, enjoyable training!  Thank you so much for sharing this!  Over the last year God has been showing me the importance of taking every day encounters and turning them to sharing Christ.  God has given me fun opportunities but now I will be more intentional!  I am excited to join the Pocket Testament League.  I’ve had a hard time finding a tract I like.  What’s better than God’s Word?  I wish I had this training when I was a teen.  Thanks!”

“A little while ago, I was feeling used up and macerated like a spitball on a classroom ceiling. I struggled with the will to face it all again Monday morning. God in His mercy had already prompted me weeks prior to attend the Make a Difference seminar, and several of us headed to a lovely church in Fleetwood to hear Don Sunshine speak.   I could not imagine a better way to spend time I thought I didn’t have. Don’s exhortation and mesmerizing stories revitalized my dying will to fight the good fight, to pour out my life like a drink offering. My hurting heart was healed, and my joy restored.“

We were saddened to hear of the unexpected loss of one of our Board members on June 22nd.  Steve Sandle, of Westfield, NY, was a dear friend and brother in the Lord and a HUGE supporter of what we do.  Steve loved Jesus and always had a word of encouragement or some Scripture to share with me when we spoke.  I am thrilled that he is home in Heaven with his Lord and Savior, and our prayers go with his lovely wife Pat and their daughters as they forge ahead without him. He will be sorely missed, but we will be reunited some day in Glory!

I was asked to share the Gospel at our church’s Food Pantry again this month, help carry food to cars for the folks and pray with them. What a blessing to be a part of serving these people!

With the lack of MAD Live Events on the calendar for the rest of the month, we are focusing on our off road ministry and securing bookings for 2019.

For $20, you’ll get 30 Gospels to share.  You can select a mix of covers for the 30 Gospels you order.   Join and order today!


With much prayer and approval from our Board of Directors, we have acquired an RV (coach) for ministry.  This is the first time our ministry has gone into debt and taken out a business loan. With all of the travel we do, we are excited and blessed to have this tool to improve our travel, and give us a place to stay when we serve the Lord in our off road ministry at campgrounds. 

We would appreciate it if you would pray about helping us eliminate this $40,000 debt.  We have 60 payments to make and would like to pay it off ASAP.  If you feel led to help us with this request, you may send us a check.  Maybe God will have you make on month’s payment for us, part of a payment, or pay it off!  Whatever He leads you to do, we’d be blessed and appreciate your help.  Just put “For RV” in the memo portion of your check. Remember, all donations are tax deductible.  Thank you!


- For Pat Sandle and daughters Jessica and Stephanie in the loss of our brother Steve.
- SCHEDULE- thank you so much for praying.  As you can see from the schedule, our summer teaching schedule is pretty barren.  We have a few events over the summer and the fall is filling nicely.This again is a testament as to how hard it is to get churches to schedule an event.  It seems to get more difficult by the week.  Please continue to pray about bookings and help us if you can.  Perhaps God has kept our summer teaching schedule light so we can focus on the off road ministry which is in full swing now. We’re also working now to begin to fill next year’s schedule
- Thanks for praying about the Spanish teaching ministry.  I met with a person who may be the perfect one for the job. We’ll cautiously proceed forward and look for the Lord’s guidance and direction.
- Healing – I will be receiving a series of 3 PRP Amniotic Allegraft injections in me knee beginning in mid-July.  – Please ask the Lord to use these treatments to finally fix my knee problem.  Thanks!
- For the funds to come in so we can make the payments OR pay offthe new coach.

Love in Christ,    

Cathy and Don

The Unexpected Loss of One of Our Board Members

We were just informed that one of our Board Members has unexpectedly gone home to be with his Lord. Steve Sandle, of Westfield, NY, was a great friend and brother in the Lord. I loved him dearly and he will be missed. Please pray for his wife Pat and daughters Jessica and Stephanie as they deal with their loss. Thank you!
