On Wings Like Eagles

When I was in DeRidder, LA setting up for our 14th show in a week and a half and feeling very weak, I prayed Isaiah 40:31. "Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." This was not working at the time. In fact, I had a fever from sheer exhaustion and the show had not begun yet.

Somehow, I made it to showtime, probably because we had such good help there. When Brock begins giving the gospel, I always pray fervently backstage. On this night, I had no energy, so I tweeted a desperate prayer requests. Then, it happened! I was pacing around aimlessly backstage, and I stopped dead in my tracks. I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit like I had never felt before. I immediately began weeping. Then, I felt a strength entering my body. My steps literally felt lighter for the rest of the night! I will never forget that night backstage when the Lord truly renewed my strength in a supernatural way. He is my strength!

Show Attendance

The Lord really blessed us with attendance at our shows this Spring. In Hampton, VA, the church sat 1,200 people. It was full. At intermission, Brock went over to the overflow and performed a few illusions there to give them something live. There were 500 people in the overflow!

In DeRidder, LA, the auditorium at the school where we performed the big night show sat 850 people. It was full within the first couple of minutes. The gym which was overflow seating with two huge screens showing a live feed of what was going on in the auditorium had close to 1,500 people in it. Wow! That was exciting! Brock rode his dirt bike while blindfolded off of the stage in the auditorium and down the hall into the gym and back around to the stage. There was so much energy in the place! It was awesome!
