Hello everyone. This seems to be the topic of the week, if not this year.
Out of the many points and countless threads about this topic, many have been speculative and of the reminiscing sort. I was wondering how many CONFIRMATIONS we have about this. There were only a few that sounded like confirmations that I found posted on this site. There may have been more that I didn't find.

http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/6/156831/1.ashx (sir82, a JW elder heard from his PO about a special annoucement, no details)
http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/12/156799/2875029/post.ashx#2875029 (dozy = like sir82, heard from PO about annoucement, no details)
http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/6/156887/1.ashx (outofthebox = talked with PO and said PO was PO'd that he knew. Closest to confirmation)

How many of these confirmations are from JW sources? Some confirmations are only about a special announcement on April 27th. Some about a restructure of congregational meetings. Is that enough for you to say this change is legitimate regarding book study at private home elimination? Do we have anybody here, besides those listed above, who actually confirmed with an active JW Presiding Overseer about this annoucement?
I just want to be sure of this. Nothing wrong with that. I do want to mention that this site does have an impeccable ability to catch and announce "confidential matters" before it is broadcasted publicly at the local Kingdom Halls and conventions/assemblies. That is one thing I like about JWD. If this so-called rumor is true, then my faith in JWD's forum arena will be heightened even more so.
I'll wait, like everyone else, for Sunday April 27th to verify this. However, I still would like to have some other posters add to this list by mentioning that they confirmed this with an active JW elder.
