Let your Light Shine and
Learn about Sunday preaching! They will soon be in your area!
Thanks fokyc. It's interesting to glance through a KM again. To think how much I used to eagerly await the arrival of each new KM when I was a JW! Ick!
does anyone know if the songs etc are the same for the month in australia?
Oz, even if the numbers are different, they will sound the same, like crap!
What a stupid idea: calling on people when they are at home.
I bet that never catches on.
What is striking is their mentioned "peak" (?) increases in Ireland. On their own 2010 Annual Service Report, Ireland showed pubs at 5721, and now on May KM is shows 5048. Annual report showed 639 pioneers, now May KM shows 561. Funny, they are boasting about an increase there. Their own numbers show a 12% decrease in pubs. and pioneers. That is quite a decrease going on over there since Aug 2010.
I know they closed the Ireland branch there. What else is going on for this dramatic 12% decrease? Congregations averaged there about 50 pubs, each in Aug.,,and that like 6 pubs becoming 'inactive' since August.
possible-san,,on a new thread,,not this one,,are you hearing anything about JWs in Japan,,are they increasing a lot right now since the earthquake/tsunami?
always thank you for your reports.
It is topic irrelevant to this OKM, though.
Well, probably, I may have explained to you similarly before.
I am an ex-JW.
Therefore, with regard to a newest information, I am unacquainted.
Probably, whatever may occur in Japan, the number of Japanese JWs will not increase in the future, IMO.
First, in Japan, the reputation of Jehovah's Witnesses is bad.
Many Japanese criticized their action.
With regard to their leaders, even an American active JW in the U.S. is criticizing their action in Japanese.
Many people have noticed that there is no love among them.
