Bethel Branches All Over The World
There are Bethels with bethel brothers and sisters all over the world. So when we speak of visiting Bethel we do not necessarily mean just Bethel in NY. A Bethel Vacation could include visiting a Bethel facility anywhere a bethel branch exists.
The Best Vacation on Earth
The best vacation on earth for Jehovah's Witnesses is one that includes a Bethel visit. Seeing how happy everyone is at Bethel as they work hard for Jehovah and for others allows visitors to personally see with their own eyes and feel with their own heart what life in the truth can be like for all of us. It will encourage you to focus not only on your own congregation, but on what Jehovah is doing world wide through his faithful earthly and heavenly organization. We have seen first hand what a visit to bethel can do. The tours the Bethel brothers arrange for visitors have the potential to change for the better your view of Jehovah, the organization, and your own congregation forever.
Memories You Can Share with Your Home Congregation
One last point. While the buildings, machines, and procedures you get to see and learn about are interesting and encouraging, they pale in comparison to the affect the tour guides and the bethel workers will have on you and the friends traveling with you. You will remember most the attention you receive from the tour guides and the bethel family. You will be made to feel welcome, loved, and appreciated by the dear brothers who serve at Bethel. You will never forget all the smiles, waves, and hello's that you personally experience. You will adopt the attitude of your bethel guide and the bethel workers you see on your tours and you will take that attitude back home to your local congregation. Like the ripples in a pond, the blessings that come from a visit to Bethel will radiate out through you. Now you can see why we believe the best vacation on earth for one of Jehovah's Witnesses includes a visit to Bethel.
This is really sickening! As usual, their double standards are evident. If other religious people visit their sacred places, they are involved in idolatry . If Jehovah's Witnesses are doing the same - and filling their pockets with dollars, they have The Best Vacation on Earth
I never went, however, my parents went on the day of my wedding. My mom said, she had to set an example as to what was most important in their lives.
