So what do you think? Is this one of the WTBTS notorious made up stories?
It's an article in the October 2006 Awake ' Protect Yourself from Carjacking'.
It gives the story of Suszan and Anika who were carjacked in South Africa. byt two men. Anika says 'I really felt that they would most probably rape or kill us.' - Anika a young wife. They had been on the 'evangelising work together' according to the mag.
How did things turn out?
'Thankfully, the experience of Susan and Anika had a happy ending. As they were being driven away by the carjackers, the two women began to explain the Bible study work they were doing. This seemed to prick the men's conscinences. 'They apologised for what they were doing.' explains Anika,'but said that because of the times we live in, they are forced to steal and carjack to make a living. We explained why God allows poverty and suffering.' The Bible's message touched the hearts of the two carjackers, and they decided to give back the money and wristwatches they had taken, assuring Susan and Anika that they would cause them no harm. 'Then one of them started to give us instructions on how to prevent a future carjacking,' recalls Susan. 'They made us promise,' adds Anika, 'that we would never again stop next to the road to have tea.' Then, just as the carjackers had told them, they stopped the vehicle, got out, gratefully accepted some Bible literature and let Susan and Anika drive away safely.'
