1. Re hearing negative reports in the media about jws. the classic first excuse offered was, " would you entertain a negative report about your spouse?" You love your spouse so you know it's wrong". "Then we must remember that jehovah is backing his people and if there is anything to correct jehovah will fix it in his own time". "So if stories like these are affecting us here are two scriptures to help us,,, Ps 94:19,,, Phil 4:6,7".
There's a lot of other refuse I could share but I want all and sundries to have a rest full evening.
Financials......."After our last convention we had a surplus of $11,663.95 so in accord of the equalizing of blah blah blah, we have forwarded the sum of $10,708.45 to the world wide work and the branch sent us a lovely letter thanking us for the contribution". " this left us a balance of $1,107.33". " Our expenses for this convention are $7,741.04 leaving us a net debt of $4,449.45 for this convention. we are deeply thankful of the generosity that you will show".
Yes,average attendees of 1.500. Seems they are charging at around six bucks per head.
Wake up Ausralia,,,, all the cash iz going to the u.s.,,,,,,,,,,
