As far as patience goes, it can certainly help you be a better person when dealing with others but needless to say, this having patience waiting for Jehovah is pure b.s.! Especially after they got everyone riled up in recent years that we are in the final part of the last of the last days and Armageddon is now imminent. What was interesting was the public discourse. It was about does Jehovah hear and act on our prayers. Nothing about this being the last days, how bad world conditions are. Yada yada yada. Not the usual public talk. Also the drama was about the brothers in Africa having to flee their home and country by listening to the direction from the branch. Jehovah saved them by sending them to a U.N. refugee camp!
