This prison has a large maximum security section and the director allowed some of the worst prisoners to attend our performance. We do an act where we use a ladder to help give them a visual reference that they can begin to take small steps to make a big change. All though they cannot leave physically, they can “go somewhere” higher and find a “place” within this place. We have to work very hard to be effective and sincerity is our greatest weapon. Many “churches” come in took take advantage of the men and get them to get their families to give their church money. Sometimes they are wary that we have hidden motives, but they quickly realize we are there to help them.
