I have not seen Jehovah’s Witnesses in my neighborhood for several years now. It appears that the cart witnessing has taken over. Congregations are being consolidated and witnesses are being forced to travel a greater distance than before.The burdens/privileges of elders seem to be ever increasing!
Since the end does not appear any closer than it did when I was pioneering 30 years ago; what is the current sentiment of the average witness, what is The motivation of people that have been knocking on doors for 30 years?
Do they still feel that the end is close? Are they pursuing careers? I know some that were motivated purely for friendships. 90% of my friends have left the organization, so I don’t have a resource for data points anymore.
