At this prison all the men are waiting to receive their sentences and can be held up to five years waiting. Some might have their charges dropped, and some can receive up to life in prison. We set up in a big auditorium and set up a bunch of benches and chairs. The men had to be divided into groups because of the different gangs they came from and then each group was heavily guarded with a line of prison guards.
My dad does a funny act wearing a monkey costume (that looks so real) and the prisoners just go crazy. This really helps break the image that we are proud Americans coming in to preach at them. The Director asked us to come back and get numerous groups of prisoners since this facility holds over 3,000 men.
