You announced yourself subtly asking on BoqueteNing asking for advice of many types to help you settle in to your new home. Then within moments of arriving you are writing about life in Boquete. Many people who live in Boquete write about their experiences here, usually they wait until they have feet on the ground, but you seem to have a different vision.
“We are doing a news story on Boquete living, and have a single survey question to ask expats and those who have moved into Panama from other international locations. ” BoqueteNing
Your post and questions inspired other locals to do some Google research. You are a noble man, a man of god, a self described philanthropist. DrdanielDavies.com
According to the Oxford dictionary.
“The desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes: he acquired a considerable fortune and was noted for his philanthropy”
This is how you describe yourself on Linkedin.com

Never having heard of the college that awarded your PhD, I did a little Google research.
“LOGOS Christian College and Graduate School is not accredited, regionally or otherwise. …. The degree programs of this college are designed solely for religious vocations.”
LOGOS Christian College and Graduate School is a distance education school of theology and ministry. Recognizing that it is not practical for all who are called to ministry to pack up their families and leave their homes or places of ministry to attend a conventional “brick and mortar” school, LOGOS brings quality, affordable and accessible ministry and theological training where students live and work. Logos Christian College
Dr Daves, I too have my ministerial credentials from the Monastary.org, another mail order degree, mine was free.
“From Dr. Daniel Daves: “I had two dreams in 2008 and and I believe that they were from God. They were so real, powerful, and convincing. They took me by surprise and the things I saw and heard in these dreams were amazing, shocking, and hard to grasp. But the first dream has unfolded perfectly before my very eyes, and everything is now complete except one last major announcement to come from our government. When that announcement comes, it will be too late for anyone to protect themselves.”

Bravo, the dollar is worthless but send those worthless dollars to me, I should have thought of that.
I was caught by your stated goals of being a Philanthropist, we need more of them. The world needs good giving people like you. You list three charities under your Philanthropic section of your web site.
“Dr. Daniel Daves believes in the power of “GIVING BACK” to our communities who are in need. He learned a powerful lesson early on in life regarding widows and orphans”
“Dr. Daves says, “If you want to get close to the heart of God and really want to help Him, then you must help His widows and orphans. He promises to be a Father to the fatherless and a husband to the widow. Because of this, God blesses and prospers anyone who is committed to helping His widows and orphans. You might not even be a real nice person, but if you care for widows and orphans, you will have the blessing of God upon your life. I’ve learned this lesson personally, and I teach it everywhere I go as a financial commandment for anyone who wants to walk in abundance and blessing.“DrDanielDaves.com
I thought the children’s feeding network was an outstanding idea. There is no more noble act than helping children so they might have a brighter future. I looked up the Childrens Feeding Network on Guidestar. The Childrens Feeding Network is real, IRS approved 501 C(3) and you are president of this charity. It did file IRS form 990 that is public record.
What I do not understand is why the Philanthropist paid himself $45,000 for working 40 hours a week for an organization he is implies is a recipient of his money.
The full, pubic report is at Guidestar.org, LINK
I wondered about your other charities, Aids Research and assistance Institute seems to have discovered a dietary cure for AIDS. If that is so I am sure the world will be eternally grateful. Once again this is a valid 503 C( 3) charity. In a post on Curezone.com asking for test volunteers you say you are Vice President of the organization.
“If you are HIV positive or have AIDS symptoms, you qualify for this program. Please send me a request to participate, with your contact information and a brief description of how long infected, signs of hiv infection, etc… and I’ll put you in contact with our R.N. who is handling all of the new volunteers. My email is email@example.com and my name is Dr. Daniel Daves, Vice Pres. of AIDS Awareness Assistance Fund. www.aidshivawareness.org.”
There is no date on this post so it could be before the IRS 990 below. The IRS 990 does show your wife Tracy as President earning $39,000 a year from your Philanthropic works here. Guidestar
So without knowing more, between two of your philanthropic works you and your wife earn $84,000 annually. I should add, according to your vision from god, worthless dollars. I can think of several needy organizations in Boquete Panama that would benefit from your donations of those worthless dollars. Perhaps Bid4Boquete or many others and you would not need to be conflicted about taking a salary since unlike you their volunteers work for free.
Dr and Mrs Daves welcome to Boquete, you are just what we need here.
