The March Service Report shows 1,010,868 publishers. That is 18,136 more than the same month last year. With the exception of the month of August, this is also the most number of publishers reporting for any other month, ever. This is 1,963 more than last December. More than a million have been preaching in the U.S. during the five out of the seven months during this Service year.
Regular Pioneers are up by about 1,500. Auxiliary Pioneers are up 14%.
Contrary to what many have said, meeting attendance is up. At least in congregations that gather in the 130 Kingdom Halls in Los Angeles County, and also in the 25 other Halls in Orange County, California.
