From my cong
Something Uneblievable just happened.
I am Pomo for a while not too long though. While we were away (i and my best friend for the weekend), I received several texts from my 2 friends, from my ex-cong ,who are PIMI(but starting to have doubts) who have been asking me questions about the jdubs.The texts seemed quite urgent n serious, so got the lowdown .At the weekend meeting , 3 families walked out!
Apparently after handing in their letter some days before,the weekend gone was thier last mtg to say goodbyes to their friends n let them know why they are leaving (perhaps they wanted their friends to know the right reasons from them verbally before their is an announcement). Dunno if their has been any JMeeting or not. Things are trickling in still.
3 families includes 2 couples ,close friends at that and a single sister.Their is more to this I am sure. I am POMO for some time so do not know anything much but what my PIMI friends who I am trying to wake up , share with me. Apparently this has been quite a stir, in particular coz one coupel who left were very involeved into spiritual things.
Next off, a bible study was dropped from the list.Why! This is interesting! A sister was studying with a lady who was progressing well,going to the meetings n all. Since she does not have a laptop or tablet she used to always be helped by her study conductor to watch broadcasts, research the website etc with her own devices. recently the study conductor bought herself a new tablet so she gave away her old tablet to the bible study so she can use it to check out the jdub website n all that goes online with the jdub in her won time. She started doing her research not only visiting the jdub sites but others too, n bingo ! landed on the so called apostate sites. She researched more n then ultimately started asking questions of her bible study conductor. The bible conductor not knowing answers or whatever,she accused the bible study of becoming an apostate n asked to refrain from doing so. She did not n persisted. Kaboom! she quit! She has stopped studying n is out. The sister has had to scratch her off the list.
I am not much of a writer, so if it sounds bland sorry. But I am happy nonetheless coz due to all this going on the 2 friends have approached me to discuss more openly my reasons for leaving. I am ecstatic about this.
