The WTBTS is no stranger to soliciting and peddling the Word of God as the April 2012 KM shows:
Page 3 April 2012 KM Convention Reminders:
Donations: We can show our appreciation for the convention arrangements by making voluntary contributions to the worldwide work at the convention. Any checks should be made payable to “Christian Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.” Beginning this year all conventions will accept debit/credit card donations in addition to cash and checks.
Page 7 April 2012 KM TWO COINS OF LITTLE VALUE:
One important way that we support Kingdom interests is by contributing financially to the worldwide preaching work. What if we are of limited means? On one occasion Jesus saw a poor widow contribute to the temple treasury two coins of little monetary value. Love for Jehovah moved her to give “out of her want, . . . all of what she had, her whole living.” (Mark 12:41-44) Jesus took note, indicating that her contribution had great value in God’s eyes. Similarly, first-century Christians did not view the responsibility of providing financial support for the ministry to be the privilege of only wealthy Christians. The apostle Paul cited the example of the Macedonians who, despite “deep poverty . . . kept begging . . . with
much entreaty for the privilege of kindly giving.”—2 Cor. 8:1-4.
Therefore, if we can only contribute ‘two coins of little value,’ we should remember that many small contributions can add up to a large amount. Our giving from the heart will please our generous heavenly Father, for “God loves a cheerful giver.”—2 Cor. 9:7.
