Somerset County Jail

Jan 19 2019

Somerset County Jail in Madison, Maine is about a two hour drive from my home in Bridgton. Today I drove up there to do two chapel services; one for the males and one for the females. Their chapel is as nice as I've seen in any Prison or Jail with plenty of room to juggle.

Today's first show was for the men. Probably 25 guys came out, and we had a nice time together. One young African-American man was affirming everything I said when it came to the Lord. Then when I did the illusion that taught the crucifixion and resurrection, he said, "That's my Jesus." I replied, "That's my Jesus, too." Although there were more juggling drops than usual, the show was good, and I ended by speaking about the Apostle Paul's statement, "Sinful man that I am, who can set me free...thanks be to God through Jesus Christ who sets us free."

The show for the women was next. There were about a dozen ladies who came out. This time my juggling was spot on with no mistakes. More importantly, God really moved. We had a lot of fun and laughter, but when I wrapped up with an illusion / story about the woman at the well, at least one woman in the audience was moved to tears as she heard about Gods grace and forgiveness. I pray that she will experience the Holy Spirit in a deep and life changing way.

Now I'm home and we're going into a long weekend and we're waiting for an approaching blizzard. Pretty perfect weekend, I'd say.
