Adventures of Donkey Ollie.

Dear Friend,

I was born in Bethany, Israel in approximately 28 a.d.. I have three older brothers who because of my small size and albino coloring never grew tired of persecuting me. I also have the ability to talk with humans and be understood.

My first claim to fame so to speak was being picked by Jesus's disciples to give Jesus a ride into Jerusalem just a week before His crucifixion. In retrospect it was a bittersweet occasion that marked my life forever.

My two young masters Elizabeth and Jehu were about the kindest humans anyone could meet and they had my most devout loyalty and indirectly were probably the reason my life was so full of excitement.

I had this series of adventures recorded to give the children in the twenty-first century an idea what life was like in the first century and even more than that I wanted them to know that no matter what dangerous circumstances they found themselves in Jesus was always there to help.

I am happy that thousands of children have enjoyed my recorded adventures but like all aspiring thespians my heart longs for the silver screen. Yes someday I want my own star on Hollywood Boulevard next to Donald Duck and Mickey and Minnie Mouse, as well as the hundreds of other animated characters who have come to life both on the silver screen and in the hearts of children everywhere.

My adventures covered years and took me all over the Roman Empire which when I lived was pretty much the ruling power. I have been rescued from lions, shipwrecks, kidnapping and along the way I have made some great friends and really seen that God is always faithful and always answers prayers though not always in the ways we expect Him too.

My creator, Brian Stewart, allowed me to be born out of his fertile imagination and nurtured me to maturity desiring that the many children he met would have a chance to get a firsthand revelation of the love and faithfulness of God as they saw the world through the eyes of lowly beast of burden upon whom God smiled.
