    Dear Brothers:

    The Watchtower public edition and Awake! for January 2013 are now being used for the first time in the ministry. We are writing to ask that you please remind the brothers in your congregation that the new 16 page format of these magazines means that, in most languages, they are printed nested one inside the other and will need to be separated before placement in the ministry.

    We are receiving a high volume of calls requesting large quantities of extra January magazines to be provided. You may need to ask the brothers to check that they have not been placing two copies at once and return their surplus to the magazine counter for redistribution among other members of the congregation.

    We do understand that there may be other valid reasons for requesting additional copies of the magazines and will continue to do our best to supply what we can.

    Thank you for your cooperation at this time of adjustment.

    Your brothers,

    Magazine Department

    Britain Branch

    Yes... there are no more Jan mags left in our cong....they were all gone in the first week... LOL

  • Satanus

    Haha. Poor dubs are all confused.

    What a effin joke

  • WTWizard

    Good. The more rags that are wasted, the better. Better yet, order extras on purpose and run them through the shredder.

    I'm torn....part of me says "Please tell me this letter is fake" yet the other part says "Please let it be real"

    Either way, I guess I'm happy!

    Didn't most halls assign a lackey to do the "separating work"

  • cofty

    That's classic!

    LostGeneration - If it is fake, then you'd better tell the elder who read it out at our meeting!

    I knew it would happen though:


  • DesirousOfChange

    Yes... there are no more Jan mags left in our cong....they were all gone in the first week...

    Does that give you an idea of how closely the Publishers read them before going out in the D2D and peddling them off???

    They didn't even notice that there were 2 issues stuck inside each other.

    Apostates knew months ago the mags need to be sorted and predicted that some would argue about whom should separate them...what a bunch of morons!
