    When was the last one,and,when is the next one?

    What was the title of the last one,and,what will be the title of the next one?

    Or,have they run out of Special Tract Campaign ideas?

    Does anyone know?

    I don't know if they could summon up the enthusiasm for another one.

    I mean, what is the point?

    But the Big A is coming SOON! SOON! Any day now!

    They are in a urgent preaching work and another tract campaign will serve to boost revues the preaching work and ruin save many lives!

    After more than a decade without special tract campaigns they launched the Kingdom News 34 "Why Is Life So Full of Problems? Is a trouble-free paradise possible?" in 1995. There was a lot of enthusiasm due to the being new after so long a time that produced new peaks.

    In 1997 they tried to repeat this effect by Kingdom News 35 "Will All People Ever Love One Another?". I felt that the effect was already going away. Remember that 1995 was the year that did away with the Generation of 1914.

    The last campaign was in 2000 with Kingdom News 36 "The New Millennium-What Does the Future Hold for You?". Of course, they wanted to use the excitement among people in general because of the beginning of the 21st century.

    I have no idea what they will come up with now but I am sure they will do it again. It has an effect in reactivating publishers and giving new ones a starting point because you do not have anything to do but handing them out.

    I do not think there is a feeling of urgency any more. And I think the tracts are so boring and contentless that I should be surprised if they have any effect on getting new interested ones in.

    They used to announce that some numbers of coupons (3 digits) were sent in to the German branch asking for a HBS. But I heard thru the grapevine that there were many jokes made sending JW to neighbors etc. The real interest if any was rather low.

    In the year 2000 it was no big surprise this was the chosen title.

    During the months of October and November, we will have a special opportunity to provide our neighbors with the answer to that question. How? Through the distribution of Kingdom News No. 36. It is entitled "The New Millennium—What Does the Future Hold for You?" During the first half of October, we will offer the Watchtower and Awake! magazines. Then from Monday, October 16, through Friday, November 17, we will engage in an intensive distribution of Kingdom News No. 36. During this campaign, we will concentrate on placing Kingdom News No. 36 on weekdays. On weekends, we will present it along with the current magazines.
