Auxiliary Pioneers

    A recent meeting stressed the usual pioneering for March and Canada they want to reach a new peak of 20,000 auxiliary pioneers.

    The article mentioned that would only require 20% of each congregations publishers.

    We're not even close in our far 4 out of 90 pubs. (4.4%)

    How is the push going in other areas?

    I have my doubts they'll reach their goal..........will have to wait and see. (I know I'm not signing up)

    A few years back saw the same kind of action. To no avail......

    That's encouraging for future developments...

    They want a total of 160,000 right?

    So does anyone know what the purpose behind this is yet?

    Surely they want something other than just a "Hey cool we got a bunch more pioneers in April" announcement out of this. I'd like to see them fail... although that's unlikely, all they need is 1 out every 38 to pioneer. Not a very daring goal.

    I'd also be curious to see what the numbers are elsewhere.

    In our congo, we were "supposed" to have 24 aux. pios. in April. We fell way short - just 15. A lot more than normal, but still only 60% of the target.

    How did your cong. fare (for those still attending)?

    Unfortunately, the groupthink took off like wildfire here and 34% of the pubs joined in this "never-to-be-repeated" (until next month) life-saving draining work.

    And, now............................(drumroll please).........................grab your whips and join me in some enthusiastic self-flagellation................because..................

    I WAS ONE OF THEM!!!!!!

    Now, before you get too carried away with those whips, hear me out. My wife was absolutely caught up in the lemming-like swarm scrambling for the little white applications and was not going to be swayed. ( I did try, but she wasn't buying it.) So, I figured, I'd rather use this opportunity to spend a lot of one-on-one time with my wife and plant some more seeds of independent thinking rather than be subjected to all the wonderul "experiences" she would inevitably be bringing to the dinner table. And, so far, it's gone pretty well.

    All right, whip away! I'm not worthy of JWD!!!!!

    Oh Open Mind - what we'll do for the ones we love! Sorry you got caught up in this - but kudos for spending the time with your wife, and maybe planting some seeds there.

    I'm sure many donut shops make huge profits during March and April every year.
