Just got a visit from two JW's and I mentioned the literature stands they have now.
I mentioned I walk past their stand they set up in my town every thursday on my way to work. Last week the stand was smaller and I asked why was it smaller. no answer..... I then said you guys usually go door to door dont you? Why the change?. He answered due to people having busier lives etc.
The 'sister' added 'well, in regard to our stalls we are not like greenpeace or others that approach you on the street. I said yeah I cross the road if i see them. The 'sister' replied ' yes we dont approach them we wait for them to approach us.
I thought the whole purpose of the witnessing work was for them to find every opportunity to approach people and preach the good news.
