Where I live they have been here a few times. They seldom stop at my house, but a few months ago 2 men stopped and gave my hubby an Awake. He did not tell them we are "used to be's" . I've seen mormons and other groups more often that jws.
Years ago jws stopped attacking the neighborhoods. Part of it was b/c there was so seldom anyone home, the other is they went into "underground mode." Preparing for " end time witnessing". I do recall us using that type of witnessing. That means we'd stop at one house on a street, leave literature, then maybe do one or two more houses. The object was not to attaract the nieghbors attention. Then we would go to the next street, or go to the oppisite end of the territroy. The object was not to be seen, observed by neighbors who would call the police. It requires really good record keeping to know which houses have been worked and which have not.
I imagine that is what is going on and apparently it works b/c none of us has seen very many of them and yet they turn in time.
They must feel they are under attack. This was always a hot topic, underground witnessing.
Just wanted to say whre I live there is a witness family on every street for about 5-6 streets. All know us and most have known us for several decades. . Not one person is calling to see if we are ok, or anything. One couple I think has stopped going to the meetings themselves, but when I tried to "feel " them out, was informed they still "believe in jws. (I'm very carreful about what I say) . I believe they may be saying this b/c they are afraid. They know the consequences of saying the wrong thing.
That too is a problem, the ones of us who are inactive are afraid to approach the others b/c we are so afraid of being reported. Wow this cult has some strong strings.
