Does anyone remember around the tear 2000, maybe just before or after, there was a leaflet released at the summer convention aimed at teenagers called something like, "planning for a worthwhile future"? Basically it argued that you shouldn't go to college or university and put your trust in "the world". Instead you should trust in Jehovah, pioneer and reach out for bethel or missionary service. Well how's that working out for missionaries, special pioneers and bethelites now being laid off? Are they glad they put their trust in Jehovah['s organisation]? If I was someone who followed that advice back then, and was being laid off, I'd be minded to find my copy of the leaflet and show it to their face.
Has anyone got a scan of that leaflet by any chance?
