We went to Iba jail this morning, our first jail visit of the trip.  I explained to the prisoners that I was glad to be back with them, but I know that they were not so glad to be there…  Gave a talk on Romans 6, translated by Louie, hard to tell how it was received, but I could see that some were following it.

Looking forward to running the Guilt & Forgiveness course next week in 164 jail – I’ve discovered that there’s no word in Tagalog for guilt, so I’ve had to re-jig Session 1 already, to teach what guilt is, rather than ask the group to tell me what it is!!  I foresaw some issues to running the course in another language and culture, but that wasn’t one of them!!
