Most witnesses I knew were exteeemly reluctant to go out in the ministry. But when they did, they were simply scraping by, eager to avoid conflict and just do their hour or so speaking to lonely old ladies or widowed old men. Placing magazines in a car group, doing route calls, plodding along in the utter boredom of their responsibility to get some time on a report by the last day of the month.
This was NEVER a warning work. At no point did you ever see the urgency that they'd speak about at assemblies etc. Warning people of gods judgment and their need to repent and get baptised, like those who saw a house burning and how they'd draw the comparison with how you'd rush around screaming, warning, doing everything possible to save lives.
The witness work was a tepid, ridiculous charade that people went through.
Do they really believe that the work they're doing involves the eternal lives of each person they find?
If they do, they're shit at it.
