It took a lot of time and work but we were finally able to confirm events in a prison in New York City. It was a very cold morning and the wind off the water made it freezing. It took a while to get all of our clearances before we could cross the bridge onto the island. This prison in considered one of the worst in the nation and high security. The prisons are hard core guys, most of them apart of gangs. One of the men, when he came in was annoyed and had no idea what was going on. By the time we had finished our performance and the men were leaving, that same man was in tears, knew all of our names and said we had really changed him. The lady who organized the event, told us that for most events they do, because the men are not obligated to stay, they usually loose interest and leave. She was surprised that not one person had left. We thank Jesus for his grace and wisdom to handle this opportunity.
