I remember there were two sisters killed in a car accident in my Hall. The story basically goes it was so freakin cold that month that there was no field service during the entire month. Finally there is a little break in the weather and the witnesses are out in full force so they don’t have to put down zero on their field service reports. Still there is no reason anyone should be travelling up and down icy highways with oil trucks going back and forth.
Finally a little Honda civic meets an 18 wheeler head on.
Go to funeral. Not a single tear shred. C.O gives the talk. Never did anyone ever say “It is stupid to drive up and down icy roads or life is more important than your field service report. Five minutes about the person, 20 minutes about the Borg.
The sick part was you could see the elders counting heads in the crowds during the speech. Then I heard people talking after. “Do you believe 600 people showed up, no I heard it was closer to 700, no I heard it was closer to 800.”
I wonder if that story will be in one of the magazines. Sad part I think it will expect they will be martyrs for Jehovah. Died doing what they loved and service to him.
