    Just received a FS visit - first for several months. An attractive 'yummy mummy' with (what seemed to me) a strained smile and a very young girl (presumably her daughter) about 9 or 10.

    The weather was attrocious, I was distracted, and I failed completely to make any comment or to challenge. Looking at the young girl, particularly, I felt nothing but sympathy.

    I accepted a leaflet 'Can The Dead Really Live Again?' with a smile and said 'thanks'. I thought about offering the child a pack of left-over 'Halloween' sweets, decided against it. My baser thoughts were that the mum was an attractive woman who deserved to be taken out for dinner and shown a life outside the WTBTS enforced circle. (Mea culpa).

    They moved on. I will, no doubt, think about them for a while (not the mum especially, more the child). What a way to live the only life we have!

    Wow! that was me with my kids. I thought it was Jehovah's holy spirit helping us find deserving ones. It was actually householders wanting to give my child a hot drink and to come in out the rain/cold.

    light bulb moment for me! Kate xx

    Today is the first Saturday of the new campaign for November, WOO HOO!

    I always wanted to be a hot chick in field service and watch my placements with dudes go WAY up.

    the tract 'Can The Dead Really Live Again?' is part of a month long worldwide campaign that started yesterday (Nov 1st)

    Seeing the attractive women in the KH is the only thing I miss, and probably the only thing that could get me physically back.

    (Lost a previous post so may post this in chunks).

    The leaflet is poorly and cheaply printed trash. Personally, I would be embarrassed to hand it out, whoever I was representing.

    I did not even think to ask YM whether she had the latest NNWT or just the 'old' NWT. Nor did I think to ask her about the 'Mass Resurrection' which, according to the NT followed the crucifixion (you remember, when all the graves in Jerusalem opened and resurrected people were wandering around greeting friends. Or about resurrected wives/husbands of widowed spouses who had remarried, and all that sort of stuff.

    And I decided a long time ago that to challenge someone's faith - especially if that is a crucial thing in their life - is a big responsibilty.

    I accepted a leaflet 'Can The Dead Really Live Again?' with a smile and said, 'thanks' "Why yes, I know they can, and the resurrection could happen very soon. It's why I'm prepared with my mummy defense kit."


    yummy mummy replies: "No way. When we believe the dead will rise again, it's Truth. When others believe the dead will rise again, it's demonic false religion."
