Prison Stop #14: Pontiac Correctional 
This facility was interesting, we arrived on time, and got through security quite easily. We made our way to the gym where the event would be held. We were anticipating a full house because the bleachers were out.  However, we waited for more than an hour for the men to arrive. While we waited, we began to sing songs and pray.

We made it to the prison and I began looking for my I.D. and realized where it was. I had left my coat at the hotel in the closet and my license was in there.

Our first event was in the Auditorium of the facility and the sound was great. The men had it prepared and the guys came out excited for us to be there. It was their Sunday morning service, so the Praise was anticipated. There was about 110 guys who came out and the Holy Spirit was all over the room. One brother ran down to the front (altar) and began praising God uncontrollably. Our best part was seeing the Warden who showed us so much love 3 years ago when we…Read more
