gorgia Welcome to the forum - yours is an interesting story. My parents were called on in 1959. They lived in post-war south London. Here is the account of what happened. To be honest I didn't write this just now, it is taken from an online book I have just released called 'There's something wrong with that boy.' By Trevor Willis.
"One fateful day something happened that was to alter the lives of my parents forever and set my brother and me on a path that would shape ours. On this summer morning, two smartly dressed men carrying briefcases knocked on our door. They showed concern and seemed to care about mother and what the future held for her. They too felt the world was hostile and unkind. They explained that we were living in the last days of this dying wicked system. God planned to do away with all suffering and reward those that supported him. Mother listened with interest to the message of hope for the future that they bore.
That evening s he told father that the men in suits had been able to answer any question she had asked and show her the answers in their Bible. They had left her with a Watchtower magazine and would be coming back to see what she thought of it and share further truths. Father was sceptical and told her that when they returned he would ask them some difficult questions himself. Always ready to fight his corner and see off impostors, father waited to trounce the two Bible bashers.
The men in suits returned and took up the challenge. Locking horns the battle commenced and they proved to be worthy adversaries. Flicking between verses of scripture at astounding speed they were able to answer every question father hurled at them. Impressed by how well they knew the Bible father agreed to see them again. Soon the smart men in suits with briefcases and fast Bibles were calling every week to conduct an hour-long Bible study with my parents. They seemed to be a godsend. Indeed, they claimed they were."
