    Recently I talked to an elder about this type of witnessing. Iโ€™ve known him for many years and he is a very honest upright man. He marveled at how many people have become baptized in the last couple of years because of cart witnessing. He said the most effective type was in more public venues. He also mentioned that the congregation has gone from approximately 72 publishers to 95!

    I just listened but I donโ€™t get it.

    72 to 95, but the Congo they closed down and merged with, what about them? And, does it count when your kids are the only ones getting literature from the carts?

    Let's see now that's 72 + 23 = marvelous numbers getting baptized because....carts, carts everywhere... yaaaaaaaaaay!

    Without any context it's impossible to say if this is even true let alone solely because of the cart people.

    "he is a very honest upright man"

    Are you sure?

    Lol a exjw talked about being one of the first pioneers to help roll out this new cart witnessing. He said later they were talking about all the success at some meeting they had. It came out that they had gotten 8 new members because of this new program. 8 nationwide that is.

    Conversely Crazyguy,

    I wonder how many pioneers manning the carts have left the org through being unwitnessed to by the likes of us?

    8 new JWs baptized (half of whom will fall away) and ten pioneers have woken up and stopped preaching.....?

    Were these "public venues" locatons where they sold alcohol by any chance?

    Funny sparrowdown, I have a friend thatโ€™s recently became a Christian and he went to Africa as a missionary. He was talking about witnessing to ones and how they were converting to Christ right then and there. He later admitted the ones converting so easily were drunk.

    The places were at train stations and large state parks. I know this guy and he isnโ€™t a liar. And no local congregations disbanded.
