I remember whenever we had an upcoming district assembly they would usually cancel the weekly meeting so it would be about 1 week (if you didn't do field service) until you would see members from your congregation again. And also other members from other congregations you may have attended in the past.
Do you remember how some members would embrace and scream for joy whenever they came across someone they hadn't seen in a while? And how this would repeat again during the next assembly?
Do you remember how some members from your own congregation would embrace you as if they hadn't seen you in a million years yet it was just 1 or maybe 2 weeks ago?
I remember the questions we would ask each other after all other pleasantries and family questions would all typically be about the same:
1. Where are you guys sitting?
2. Where are you guys staying? (district)
3. What did you bring to eat?
4. What time did you arrive?
5. Where is (family member)?
Was it just me or did you also experience the same?
Also, was there ever a time you felt down because you couldn't buy yourself something new to the assemblies or memorial day?
