    When does the number of memorial partakers get released for 2017. I was wondering if the number will surpass 20k

    Interesting that the growth in partakers is roughly the same rate of Americans affected by mental illness.

    Yea I remember that talk. That's a whole lot of cray cray

    I think it's only a matter of time before they stop publishing these figures.

    I agree George, having backed themselves in to a corner with the teaching that only those of the generation that knew someone like Fred Franz are really of the Anointed*, the growing numbers are a huge embarrassment.

    Sometimes they announce memorial stats at the annual meeting, so we may find out next weekend. I doubt they're particularly proud of this one, though, so probably not. Reasonable chance we'll find out the total number that attended.

    I wonder if the total memorial attendance topped 20 million this year as it did last year when attendance was just over that "magic" number. Usually the number fluctuates but with an overall upward trend.

    Pot calling the kettle black I say. The rate of people leaving the borg is in proportion to the number of people claiming to be anointed. Interesting times.

    I was a witness myself and I left 5 years ago. Since then I have been thinking of going back, but every time I do, I read about what’s wrong with the organization and that helps me.

    I speak English and french but my friends who are still witnesses do not speak English.

    I have been able to find information that are credible and accessible. JW.facts has been quiet helpful. Give me some suggestions as to how I can get these information in other languages to make it accessible for my friends who speak french. U guys have any idea.
