Not too long ago, many of you on this forum offered me words of encouragement concerning the fact that I have experienced an abundance of outright rejection and condemnation from the religious community at large over my magic performances. 
My past has been replete with every kind of condemning word one can imagine over this. (And even some that are beyond imagination!)

Well, anyway, I'm posting this to THANK-YOU, and thank ALL of you who encouraged me. 

Yesterday, I had a victory. I was performing at a business expo, and who walked in but my pastor! I thought "This is it!" The moment of truth. Well, turns out that not only did he enjoy my performance, but he went away and came back with his wife and asked me to perform for her. She too was all smiles and delighted with my magic. 

 
Well folks, this is a total turnaround from what I have been used to in the past! Doors can now open, thank-you Jesus, and thank-you all my friends who encouraged me on this forum not to give up!

In fact, my pastor went so far as to tell me he thought we were kindred spirits, and that he admired and respected my sleight of hand abilities. And he wants to treat me to lunch after church next Sunday.

This is a FAR CRY from the pastor who told me that the magic I do is akin to being a voodoo witch doctor!!

All glory to God!

Thanks guys!!

That is GREAT news, for sure!!! My wife & I have been blessed by our Pastor, who is very supportive of our ministry. Just a couple of weeks ago he "interviewd" our youth Pastor & his wife in front of the congregation regarding their trip this summer to Ethiopia. He will be teaching in a theological seminary there. He talked about making a real impact in that region of the world.

Well, I started to feel pretty insignificant on what I do....I mean I'm just doing magic. Then the Pastor talked about OUR ministry! He said at first he thought it was "dumb" and he was hoping that we wouldn't embarass ourselves! After attending our first show he was "blown away".

God uses us in our own unique way to be a blessing to others.

Doug, I pray that God will continue to open doors for you, and it looks like He just opened a BIG one!!

All the best,

Mark

Thanks Mark, for the kind words and good wishes!

I got to thinking : You guys have really encouraged me, but that would not have even been possible if it weren't for Steve Brooks starting this wonderful Magic Café.

Check this out guys: My pastor just invited me over to his house Saturday to perform magic tricks for his kids. What a blessing! I thank all here who have prayed for me. Perhaps after all these years, some doors may finally be opened to me.
