Talking about tomorrow's WT study, that mentions over a quarter of a million baptized every year, a JW asked how many that is a day. I got out my calculator and answered over 778 a day. Of course they were amazed at the growth, but immediatly I googled another statistic and read it aloud:
'And 360,000 are born every day, and 151,600 people die every day.'
Nobody said anything, but the sister who asked in the first place was a little annoyed. Instead of addressing it, she asked:
'Well, how many are baptized in a week?'
I said 'over 5,000'.
She said 'Its good to think about it that way, by the week'.
