A letter was read to the congregation last Sunday. I wasn't paying much attention until I heard Stephen Lett will be delivering a talk. At first I thought it would be as a recorded video, as it was in the last assembly. However, after the letter was posted to the board, I went back and re- read it twice to make sure I understood correctly. Letter says we will have a visitor, a branch representative (branch is literally the word in the letter). Later in the paragraph, we are encouraged to invite our loved ones or any other bible studies we may have to hear the talk by "the representative from the branch, Stephen Lett, member of the goberning body"
Seems pretty clear to me he will be there in person. I have always been curious as to how these people are treated and how they travel around to assemblies. Specially to smaller ones like this one. This assembly will be held at the AH of La Feria, TX. The auditorium does not hold more than 7000 people. I remember attending the last International Convention in Houston (2014), at the Reliant Stadium. Geoffrey Jackson attended. The entrances to the stadium, specially the stairs up to the suites, where heavily guarded. You could tell there was plenty of people up in the private suites. This AH does not have much in special accommodations other than a small apartment where the CO lives.
The talk is supposed to be at 2:30 PM. For those who have insight into how this is handled in the backstage. At what time could he be arriving or leaving? Would he be there for the whole thing or just the day of his talk? Ideally, I would like to be prepared to take a video if I see something interesting. Again, just in case. This is like astronomy, you never know what you are going to discover. I may not discover anything but if I am not prepared, I won't for sure.
