I live in the area and the news is reporting that the community of non-Jehovah's Witness are really rallying around the family such as raising money for the family. I hope this changes the JW view of worldly people as evil and non-loving.

i just moved up to oregon and am wondering if any of you fine lovelies are located up in this neck of the woods.. i have had a great time connecting with ex-jws in other places where i've lived so i'd like to throw a little line out to see who may be up for some hoots and hijinks (or just a cup of tea) in central oregon.. thanks!.
flipper, mrsjones, dagney, leolaia and many others can vouch for me that i am not like, the jwn version of the craigslist killer :).
I am in Portland. I know that's not near Bend but at least it is in the same State!

since most of us believed it was right around the corner, how many of you went to any secondary schools or training?
what do you do now to survive?
are you working or unemployed?
I work for the Red Cross and make sure that possible contaminated blood does not get out the door. I feel more pride working for the Red Cross then I ever did as a JW.

or so says ronald weinland;.
may 27, 2012april 29, 2012. as readers of this site know, may 27, 2012, is the time that i have stated as being the date jesus christ will return as king of kings over all government on this earth.
for such an event to come to pass, the trumpets of revelation must all sound, the united states and dollar collapse, the ten nations of europe arise to fulfill the final revival of the holy roman empire, and russia with china must unite against europe in wwiii.. .... http://www.ronaldweinland.com/.
That's great! May 27 is my birthday. What a way to celebrate

it occurred to me that there may be larger hot spots of ex jws in other places besides so cal.
so if you are in an area with a particularly large amount of exjws, will you sponsor an ex-jw blood drive in your area?.
March is Red Cross month. Please give blood even if you can't get an ex-JW group together. I work for the Red Cross and the need for blood never stops.
