It's nearly time to go. Not my turn to preach today, but I am doing an Alpha in detention talk Tuesday and will be there three times this week. The worst part is the search. Beyond that we tend to forget the walls and try to bring hope to people who are often frightened and worried. You cannot judge. Everyone's case is different and people don't stay long. It is the one kind of service where we hope not to see people next week and perhaps one day walking along the street. I am hoping for news of miracles at the detention centre today.

It is so true that we cannot judge, most people who judge are worse than those they judge.

i am always in salute to the people like you. -We cannot do what you are doing so the least we can do is for us to say to you to continue your good deeds.

Well, I hope you help them solve all their worries by next week. It sucks when we see how technology and modernization only works so much.

You're right that we cannot judge. Everyone's case is indeed different.

I too hope some miracles come for those in need today at the prison.
