DAY 1: Prison Tour: Show # 1

Today kicked off the first prison stop for the  Black History Tour. We arrived to Statesville prison, the oldest prison in the country.  We had 3 volunteers joining us for the event, from Illinois.  We began the check in and clearance process, and boy we could feel the adversaries presence. We came together and prayed in the lobby!, while, waiting to be called for clearance. As we all are cleared to head inside the prison, we learn  from Officer Davis that our event was cancelled. She said they got a call that it was cancelled. She had to call the Chaplain and Deputy, and they gave us the ok, but no one knows who cancelled it. Finally, made it to the next level of clearance, we get there to learn we needed visitor badges. Now,  we had to wait, and the Officer had to bring them over to us.  After this, we find out since they canceled the event  the original  150 inmates that were waiting for us in the gym were sent back. Now, the second call out  they only allowed 25 guys to come back out. We get to the gym and see that they didn't set up the sound equipment. So, once again, we are delayed, now the 2hr program has been reduced to 1hr.  The Holy Spirit did his thing, the presence of The Lord was stirred and invitation to Christ given. 1 soul was saved, and the guys really enjoyed the program.   We are now headed to Robinson Correctional for an evening program. Follow my daily blog, to see what is happening inside the prison.

Love Y'all,
