Jail

The other part of the team went to the jail. The jail that we went to can be compared to a county jail in America. I learned that most of the people at the jail are there for drugs. Each day that Jen goes to the jail is different because she never knows if they will let her and her group in. Today they let us in and we had a bible study with some of the women inmates and the guys that were with us talked to the men inmates. When the women came out of their cell they greeted Jen and Kelsey with hugs and smiles. There were 15 women total but only 11 of them came out for the bible study. The study started out with a review of what they learned last week. Then we talked about the church and what it meant to be part of it. We had a paper that we went through that went further into the topic of the church. The paper covered how being a church doesn’t just mean a people in a building but it means being a group of believers together. Part of being part of the church means realizing how to be a servant to others and realizing the different gifts that God has given each one of us. Some of the women looked up verses and gave their input and most of them looked like they were intently listening. After the Bible study Jen got out nail polish and all their faces lit up and they grabbed for the bag. We painted some of their nails and gave out snack cookies. Having snacks from Jen is a big deal because besides rice the inmates only get the food that their family outside the prison brings them.
