INTRODUCTION: HOW TO BE A GOSPEL MAGICIAN'S ASSISTANT (WITHOUT BEING MISERABLE)

She didn't know what to do. She had been asked to help with a Gospel Magic program.

She didn't know where to stand.
She wasn't sure what to wear.
She didn't know if she should look at the audience or look
at the magician.

She didn't know how to hold his props.
She didn't know how to respond to applause.
She didn't know if she should smile or act serious.
She wasn't sure when she was supposed to walk out on stage
or to wait off stage.

Frankly, she wasn't even sure how to walk out. Walking is something she never thought about...until she knew everyone would be watching. When she started thinking about it she got worried. Did she walk fast or slow? Did she look weird when she walked or did she not?

She didn't know what to do.
She felt awkward, nervous, self-conscious, and embarrassed.

He misinterpreted her feelings. He assumed her uneasiness was because she didn't support what he was doing. He thought she thought he was an inept performer and was embarrassed to be seen on stage with him. He decided she wasn't in favor of his ministry and she didn't trust him.

The result of these feelings was an argument. Harsh things were said that produced bitterness. They never did work together on stage.

A sad thing about this situation is she did support his ministry and she did trust him. She would have loved for them to be a team in sharing the Gospel by way of illusions and object lessons. From the very beginning she wanted to help. She just didn't know what to do.

This book is written to wives, girlfriends, mothers, sisters, and daughters as well as to husbands, boyfriends, fathers, brothers, and sons who may be called upon to help with a Gospel Magic presentation.

Since the two most likely to be called upon are wives and girlfriends the book will primarily speak in such terms. However it is for all who now and then have the opportunity to play the role of "assistant".

The book is written in response to a need my wife and I have often heard expressed. "HOW DO YOU ENJOY BEING AN ASSISTANT? WHAT IS AN ASSISTANT SUPPOSED TO DO? HOW DO YOU OVERCOME FEAR AND NERVOUSNESS? HOW CAN YOU GIVE COMPETENT HELP?

Much is available to give the magician or primary minister and performer instruction and direction. Little if anything is available for the one, who by way of assisting, is a big part of a program even though she or he is not the center of attention.

With this book our desire is to contribute information and encouragement to this area that is often neglected. We will
try to answer the questions often asked. Our aim is to give direction and ideas that will take the pain out of helping with a program and make it a matter of joy and increased effectiveness instead (Ecclesiastes 4:9).
