    Hip hip Horray! It's a great day for followers of Yaweh! _________MOSHE


    By transitionin' to the internet, It would seem logical

    to only knock on doors that request a study

    Through the internet the house holder has all the info needed to make contact

    at their convenience

    It's obvious they're having trouble getting support for mid-week FS for the CO's visit.

    I think it all comes down to keep people busy and doing work for the WT.

    The Pubs have been at full battle alert as an army now for about 150 years. They are getting a little worn out. This should help..

    Next year the letter will read "Due to the fine results of the special 30 hour campaign months the auxillary pioneer hour requirement has been reduced to 30 hours(or 50 if you wish)

    Additionally, beginning March

    2013, any publisher who auxiliary pioneers during a month in which the circuit overseer visits the

    congregation may attend the circuit overseer’s meeting with the pioneers in its entirety.

    It's almost sad, I swear to God it's almost sad...

    Can they see how their religion is being run into the ground? Can they see how all these special little things that mean so much to them are having their value debased and frittered away just to pad the numbers?

    And then that WFR about pornography. You can't say the congregation is being kept clean when they know about people looking at "scenes of nakedness and heterosexual couples having sex" while allowing them to remain active baptized Jehovah's Witnesses.

    They've cheapened the meaning of being a pioneer with this auxiliary gimmick, and they cheapened the meaning of being a baptized Jehovah's Witness with that QFR.

    All just to pad the numbers.

    Why do they have to pad the numbers so much more than they used to?

    The Governing Body they think is God's freaking mouthpiece are the very people running the Jehovah's Witnesses into the ground.

    To quote from the parable of the Master and the Talents:

    14 “For it is just as when a man, about to travel abroad, summoned slaves of his and committed to them his belongings. 15 And to one he gave five talents, to another two, to still another one, to each one according to his own ability, and he went abroad. 16 Immediately the one that received the five talents went his way and did business with them and gained five more. 17 In the same way the one that received the two gained two more. 18 But the one that received just one went off, and dug in the ground and hid the silver money of his master.

    19 “After a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them. 20 So the one that had received five talents came forward and brought five additional talents, saying, ‘Master, you committed five talents to me; see, I gained five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave! You were faithful over a few things. I will appoint you over many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 Next the one that had received the two talents came forward and said, ‘Master, you committed to me two talents; see, I gained two talents more.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave! You were faithful over a few things. I will appoint you over many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’

    24 “Finally the one that had received the one talent came forward and said, ‘Master, I knew you to be an exacting man, reaping where you did not sow and gathering where you did not winnow. 25 So I grew afraid and went off and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ 26 In reply his master said to him, ‘Wicked and sluggish slave, you knew, did you, that I reaped where I did not sow and gathered where I did not winnow? 27 Well, then, you ought to have deposited my silver monies with the bankers, and on my arrival I would be receiving what is mine with interest.

    28 “‘Therefore TAKE away the talent from him and give it to him that has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone that has, more will be given and he will have abundance; but as for him that does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 30 And throw the good-for-nothing slave out into the darkness outside. There is where [his] weeping and the gnashing of [his] teeth will be.’

    And the number of those in the pioneer ranks will swell to record numbers. Truly a sign that Jah is blessing this organization and this life saving is speeding up and the end is even closer than ever.


    auxiliary pioneers will be awarded bonus hours during the week of the circuit overseer's visit. For every hour of field service you complete you will be awarded another hour for free*. Also if you work with the circuit overseer you will be awarded triple hours. This does not extend to working with his wife. If you work with a district overseer you get quadruple hours**.

    *this offer applies to your local congregation and cannot be redeemed by gatecrashing a neighbouring congregation's CO visit. This only applies to those in good standing in the congregation.

    **this offer may be withdrawn without prior notice - please contact the WBTS for terms and conditions.
