Perusing this thread, I was struck by the irony of how the WTBTS constantly pressures elders to take a VISIBLE lead in the field ministry, but our supposed Leader, Jesus Christ, leads INVISIBLY!
For many years, we had a pioneer sister in our congregation that always turned in a complete Field Service Report, yet no one ever saw her out in service. We jokingly called her our Phantom Pioneer. Now I understand. She learned from the GB and just followed the example of Christ's invisible presence. Interesting that she turned in her reports. Probably she didn't want the elders harassing shepherding her!
