At the last minute we were invited to share instead at a weekly meeting called, Convicted by Christ for men who had been incarcerated. About 30 men gathered and began the meeting worshiping enthusiastically, like men who had been set free, which they had, both physically and spiritually!
Dustin then did an abbreviated presentation, riding a few unicycles, juggling fire, then sharing his testimony and a message of hope in God's power to save and redeem. He shared his favorite verse from Isaiah 40 about how when we stumble and fall, if we put our hope in God He will renew our strength and we'll soar on wings like eagles. As he shared the verse, a man stood up pointing to his shirt that had that verse on it. These men know what it means to stumble and fall, and they are seeking the God who has picked them up and given them strength to start again on a better path.
|They always end their meeting in a circle of prayer.|
