my husband and i (never-been-jws) drove past our family member's kingdom hall the other day.
we saw him out front with several other guys mowing the lawn, trimming, sweeping, etc.
the thing i'm wondering.....does that mean he's a ministerial servant now?

on this april fool's day.....my thoughts are of my jw family member...who i deeply love.
a fool for letting himself get suckered into joining this insideous cult.
from the very beginning, we tried to warn him.

for those of you who started studying with the watchtower society as an adult (not born in)......did a friend or family member ever try to dissuade you from joining?
if so, what did you think of that person at the time?.

.....my son and his wife are both jws and have been for years.
the wife has pioneered for years, but i don't think she is now b/c she currently starting working.
they have been talking about taking a vacation (something that they've never done).
