i dunno if you can be much help, but i figured i'd register and explain my situation. so, here goes...
i just found out a few days ago that a friend of mine from japan is a jw. born and raised as a matter of fact. i've been praying for an opportunity to talk to her about it, but i'm not too sure where to start. i've been looking around at freeminds.org, and they have some helpful stuff, but the culture crossover concerns me most.
i'm sure i could apply the "tough questions" rather easily with a native english speaker, but i don't know how far i can get with my friend. plus, the japanese new world translation is doubtless a straight copy of the english one, so its two or three steps removed from a real copy of scripture.
i don't know what will happen if i get a chance to talk to her about it, but i know there's not much time left to do it. her study abroab program ends next month. i'll actually be going to japan in june to work for a year, but i'll be extremely far from where my friend lives.
any thoughts would be appreciated,
