I have debated about doing this for a while (I still don't even know if the pics will show up good enough) Coming across sir82's "insider" notes got me looking through my stuff today, and I thought I would share a few of the letters with you.
I also do this for another reason: I know occasionally, that "trolls" (so called) come and go, and people here get worried or upset. I don't worry at all, I personally think they aren't here to "save" any potential lurkers, they just come here to tick us off. But I also realize that some authoratative information might help to ease some concerns. (as in, "you're an idiot, trust me, I was there, thats not what JW's teach...") As I was neck deep in what JW's taught as "authoratative", I thought I might offer those credentials....
I have removed anything "traceable" (last name and passport number) and I hope that the type shows up... Here we go...
I'll start with the most exciting picture.
Inside this attractive piece of synthetic material is what I worked so hard to get for 10 years of my life (much to my shame)
Here was the letter we got that day. The PS gift was $50 cash for each couple.
Depending on where you were sent, each couple received a credentials letter, making us official... Here was ours.... We were to show it along with the diploma if asked or otherwise given trouble by the local government. (why that didn't set off warning signals I don't know....)
Lastly, as those of you who have followed my story know, I was attacked twice in a 5 day span in late 2005. After giving it a last gasp go, I let everyone know that I needed to return home. The letter from the branch was rather nice. I did lie though in my missionary resignation letter, I said I "still believe that the faithful and discreet slave is being used by Jehovah". What else could I do? I didn't want them to kick me out into nowhere.... Here is the letter from the Service Dept accepting my resignation as a missionary.
I am sorry if these don't turn out to well. I was lazy, this took like 15 minutes of editing in Paint.
PS, oh yeah, the class photo. A pic of a pic.. Hope you all are excited at this blur....
