Just this morning my mother phoned me to tell me that a lady she had previously studied with years ago, had called her this morning with news that her church was having a special serman designed to help those who have left the Watchtower. My mother asked, "Is there really that many leaving in this area?" She said "Oh, Yes!" That was amazing!! I have been out for about a year and a half, and know of a few that have been Df'd since then, but not sure who they all are, or what has happened to them.
My mom and dad left the organization about 3 1/2- 4 years ago. My mom had lost contact with this lady long ago, but had often wished she could one day find her and tell her that they (my parents) left the organization. Well, I ran into her, and gave her number to my mom. She quickly called her, and told her how glad she was she never progressed to baptism, and about them leaving the Borg.
Anyhow.. just thought I would share this with you all. Thought it was pretty interesting!!
Oh..one more thing..I understand one of the halls here had a talk on Apostacy as a local needs part. Seems we have them "shaking in their boots!!"
