As always your words make a lot of sense and bring me comfort.
The new Japanese pastor I have is far better than the idiot I had before. At least he was honest by saying his religion prohibits him from getting involved in worldly legal matters. The other man just said said he could testify but refused in case he had to tell lies, which was not the case.
I m going to have to get a friend to find someone to send over from Japan. Nobody here replies to our mails, even though we haven't given details.
Those JW are brainwashed. Most come from JW families, not converts. Im sure they believe all prisoners are sinful and it is their job to show us the way to everlasting life. I think some are thrown a bit when they are told that some prisoners were not actually that sinful to begin with and shouldn't be here.
A corrupt guard caught me using my cellphone, he sneaked in and I was too slow to react. He didn't take my phone but it will become a monthly bribe.
As I write this, a Japanese has just been admitted to jail. Looks like a gangster but he'll be able to post bail for minor drug offence. Had a brief chat and he has friends here. Maybe your prayers will be answered.
