All this talk about whether door to door work is fruitful or not has really got me thinking.
So I was wondering, (a) How many JW's or ex's here were actually converted on the door, and (b) How many JW's or ex's here ever obtained a convert on the door?
I made 2 converts whilst a JW, but 1 was the son of an interested person, the other was a wayward son of a weak sister so I get a zero.
My dad worked at London Heathrow as an air traffic controller, he got 6 other controllers to join up, so if you're arriving in the UK, don't fly Apostasy Airways! For all his frequent bouts of vac pioneering, I don't think that he ever pulled a live one off the doors, so he gets a zero too.
My mum was quite a puller in her time but they were all friends of friends who came to sit in on Bible studies etc, so, sorry mater, you get a zero also.
As a matter of fact, I'm wondering if the door to door work isn't completely pointless!
