In a previous post by Joker10, he states positive things for the Watchtower Empire.
We know that the stats are fake, especially those numbers of anointed remnant.
The real news:
World wide increase was one of the lowest in decades at 1.3%
Memorial attendance was down from last year, you usually hear about the Memorial attendance in advance of the stat report, either in a talk or general announcement.
The number of hours is fake - at least 120 hours recorded in the stats are my fake ones.
Attendance is down in western countries
More people who come here are ACTIVE and want to leave but can't
More witnesses out of "heart harmony" than those who are in "heart harmony" with the truth
Many of the increases are simply immigrants
Also, the United States had a 0% increase.
The second highest peak mentioned was August 2005, where the increase had jumped almost 40,000 from the previous month, July 2005.
Probably all those fades and inactives were called at the last minutes and asked to think of a number between 9 and 11.
