Convention in Lowell Mass June 15-17 2018...about 4500 in attendance...11 baptized (0.24%)...believe about 6 of those were kids of current JW's.
RC Lowell Mass (USA)
I think you mean .0024
A couple of decimals make a big difference. Pretty dismal outlook for the dubs.
I am sure many remember the days when you had an assembly that big and 100's got baptized. 11 baptized? You can just see Jah's chariot speeding along at record pace!! lol
0.24% is the same as .0024
Impressive numbers! Lol
The % should only get smaller and smaller. With the bad news and scandal cover ups of the WT corporation all over the internet.
How is the lowell mass congregation doing? Growth?
11/4500 = 0.00244
0.00244 x 100 = 0.24%
When I joined this religion in the ‘80s the baptisms were always 1 - 3% of the attendance at conventions and assemblies. Always.
I clearly remember a dozen years or so ago at an assembly of about 1,500 in a suburban area in California where no one got baptized. No one.
Several of the long time elders were shocked and visibly disturbed.
just to make the math easier, at a recent assembly in the Pacific North West, there was a figure of ~1% baptized, less than 5% of that new recruits. Not a valid baptism, not by people that knew what they were doing. No doves, perhaps bird brains though.
Father forgive them, they do not know what they are doing.
