I hope the letter about deleting the Theocratic school is true.

    Yesterday I was with a group of brothers that wanted my advice on re-roofing a home. Three of them were ministerial servants. All of them are from the Spanish Congregation. After we finished talking business, they asked me why I stopped going to the meetings.

    I related all the changes in the organization that I was not comfortable with. They asked, like what? So I elaborated and afterwards expressed strongly how I felt that the preaching work is fading into the sunset. That It’s not their first priority anymore.

    I told them that I wouldn’t be surprised if they did away with the Theocratic Ministry School very soon.

    Well they went into hysteria, facial and hand gestures were out of control (The Spanish are kind of emotional, at least more than the English brothers) And they are always behind on any WT news because they still haven’t heard that news about the end of the T. school.

    Some of the comments were;

    “No Brother, that will never happen”

    “Brother, that is the only way new ones are trained to speak”

    “Brother when that happens, the preaching work stops because Armageddon will be here”

    I didn’t tell them the end of the T. School was a sure thing, I just said, “I wouldn’t be surprised if they did away with it soon”

    Man I hope that letter about the end of the Theocratic School was true.

    Awesome job! When the announcement comes they'll be very confused.

    You did a good job, you are protected even if it was an elaborate hoax (which I am pretty certain it is not).

    You planted a seed.

    I still feel there is a "student" part, so I think saying they are doing away with it is a step further than the watchtower will explain. I think the school will just be changing. Because in the letter they used the words "student" I am hesitant to say they are throwing the school away, at least in their perception.

    When it's announced, they're gonna be either really curious by what else you think might happen, or they'll be scared as hell of you...

    I think it's very much going to be like when the meeting name for the "Congregation Book Study" was changed to "Congregation Bible Study."

    Lipstick on a pig.

    Although, if the letter is true, it appears that aside from Bible Reading, all parts will be demonstrations, and not solo talks.

    And by the way, there are a couple of threads about it in JW-Archive. No one there is calling it fake. Even the subject of the construction issue is not seen as a fake.

    So it's still kind of vague what actually is going to happen with the school. I hope they do away with it because I'm planting seeds everywhere.

    What's interesting is, they can't fathom the school being done away with. It's one big hurdle they are going to have to jump. I believe it will nudge some of them to wake up.

    If it is true then it shows the WTS is willing to adapt and nothing is 'sacred'. The change will make the meetings far more enjoyable / less unpleasant for many people while also giving them greater control of any messaging.

    Overall, that's probably going to be more successful ... for them. Maybe not such a great change then.

    I am also impressed ( I probably should not be but can't help it) on how little information there is about TTATT in Spanish. Also, most of the pro-JW spanish forums I've seen have no mention of anything controversial. May be they are heavily censored?

    I came across a mention of JWs in the facebook page of Larry Hernandez, the singer. He also has a reality show. Apparently he bumped into some JWs at a store and recorded his conversations with them. He then posted some words regarding how little people respect JWs despite their noble cause. This is the only place where I was able to post some comments regarding the TTATT. Other sites seem to ignore any of my posts.
