THANK him for boldly, faithfully, and respectfully speaking the Real Truth.
Financially: Is he in decent position/comfortable enough? Is there a way for people to donate to him and his wife? If so, where and how?
How did you come to set this appointment to meet? Special project?
Could you bring a tape recorder and transcript?
Will you post a photo?
Starting to sound like idol worship...!!! But really I am extremely grateful.
Raised in the truth in very abusive household w/ elder father. Pioneered for 3 years in my late 20's. 3rd year of pioneering started to have doubts. 5 years later I knew in my heart that what was tolerated and even encouraged in the congregation was wrong. That was about 12 years ago. I have been suffering with depression for about 25 years with the last 15 being severe (including a nervous breakdown)
Only last month I realized that I had been trying to reconcile the JW 'truth' with reality and the REAL Truth. What an amazing relief. Things clicking into place. The catalyst was an extremely brief review of COC.
I have ordered both books and my father (ex-elder) is also extremely anxious to read it. He was amazed even at the little bit I was able to share about 607.
Sorry for rambling..!! LOL Turning point in my life. The 2nd half will be so much better because of MrFranz and of course all that I have learned and experienced here at JWD. Thank You. THANK YOU!!
