writes: I am happy I ended up leafleting at the Pillar concert
because we met Dorothy. We must have given out 200 or more
booklets. The concert was mostly a lot of kids and it wasn't real
crowded but it was a nice night. There were those who just held
there hand out while listening to the LOUD music and then there were
those who really wanted anything that had to do with Christianity.
There were also some who were Vegetarians already and noticed some
new information in the booklet. I kept the left over booklets to
distribute them around my area.
Extending CVA’s ministry
to Peru, John writes:
Regarding his activities in Peru, John writes: I wanted to mention that
things went pretty well in Peru regarding my trip and animal
welfare. At first things looked bad, because the culture
is ridiculously stuck on meat. Furthermore sometimes I was
confronted with animal cuisine in ways much more disturbing than I
might have to face here in the big city.
However eventually I won some respect
for vegetarianism with the host pastor. On my last night I even
heard him preaching to the evangelists there about how though I was
a vegetarian I was willing to go where there was no vegetarian food
to serve God. He has taken all the Spanish books you sent me. He
read his with special interest.
Needless to say, he is a special
pastor to be so open to new ideas in such a culture.

3. Should We Support Animal Welfare Reforms?
Ann writes: I feel that ANY efforts to
eliminate any aspects of an animal's suffering are steps in the
right direction. Ask the pig who has been confined all its life how
it feels about being able to move. This doesn't mean we have to
accept eating pigs as ok, because it isn't. But we have to take one
step at a time and pray for all people to eventually see the light
and understand that eating animals is wrong. I find that living as
an example to others is the best way to get that message across.
