A native Spaniard Witness was sent from Brooklyn in 1921 to begin preaching among the Asturias miners near the city of Oviedo. Presumably this group of potential converts had been carefully identified and deliberately targeted, but we are not told why.
Oh really? We don't know why Asturia? hmmm

In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., at that time, there was a zealous Spanish brother named Juan Muñiz. Brother Rutherford asked him to go to Spain and, about the end of 1920 or the beginning of 1921, Brother Muñiz paid his own fare and set out for this land. He was an Asturian from the north of Spain and returned there to live with his sister. His witnessing territory? The mining communities in Asturias.
