    Have you ever felt the urge to

    send a nice message to a brother or a sister, without any real reason? Like, my sister in law is struggling lately to find a job, and she refused to pick some jobs that may prevent her to attend meeting, or some job offers, very interesting by too related to religious (false) stuff. And she is happy because she feels she is making the right decision about these job offers. Praying a lot, etc... Then yesterday, she received a message, unexpected, from a sister, very positive, like "keep up the good work, you are doing great". My sister in law felt as if it was Jehovah himself talking to her. And, in a way, that's true, Jehovah may use our Friends to answer our prayer, bring comfort, etc. So, I think, if you feel the need to send a positive message to a bro or a sis... just do it... maybe some angels are pushing Have you ever had such experiences?

    Last Sunday I had two talks in Northern Spain, so we stayed in a rural B&B with a farm. The site was wonderful and the owners were extremely nice to us. Then when we were leaving we found out they are JWs.

    How encouraging and comforting it would be if more people had this rare view of us?

    I did not see a thread created, so I took the liberty to make one (if there is one, let me know where it is). And I also think this is the correct link: https://www.jw.org/download/?pub=jwb&issue=201810&langwritten=e By my count, Monday is the first, so the Broadcast is less than a week away! A few notes based on what I am personally thinking. This is the month for the annual meeting. Will we get a preview? Or have they made/will make arrangements to enable us to live stream the meeting on JWB? Will they let us know if we are doing what we did last year as far as watching it as an organization? Who will host? I like Octobers now, because the month has a lot to look forward to spiritually.

    I really enjoyed this one. It really debunked the long repeated nonsense LIE that we changed the Bible to fit our beliefs. The bothers on the 40s held off to make sure that God's name should be in the Bible. These brothers were VERY thorough. This was a scholarly JWB. Great job.

    I ended up in the ER after the meeting today. An elderly sister needed some shampoo and asked me to take her to the store. I passed out twice in the store, twice in the ambulance and three or four more times in the ER. Every time someone attempted to sit me up, I passed out. So I finally asked them to please just let me lie flat on my back. I didn't have a stroke or a heart attack, or a seizure. It wasn't my blood sugar. The ER doc thought I was just dehydrated. But I don't think I was. My legs quit working just before I passed out the first time. And I was completely paralyzed when I woke up in the ambulance. Strange. They couldn't find out why I couldn't remain conscious in a vertical position, so after observing me for four hours and giving me a few bags of IV fluids, they finally said I could leave if I could sit up without passing out. I could. So I called Sister Linda/Loopy and asked if she could give me a ride back to my car. She kindly rescued me and I made it home okay. All in all... A really strange way to spend a Sunday.

    "No one will be fully pleased" with their peace plan. If this ends up being the P&S declaration that we are waiting for, I wholeheartedly disagree. I will promptly throw a party. 🤣

    Our Indonesian brothers

    Maybe... One affected brother shared an update, two screen shots and a picture were shared around jws here... But, I'm hesitated to share it since I'm not the owner and I dunno the brother in personal... However, It looked valid, the update said that all members of palu cong is safe, evacuation arrangement has been made, and he shared this information to ease others who may be worried about them... They still held a meeting by using what was available, spiritual food and brotherhood strengthen them, and in the moment, food supply is adequate, rescue aid has been made. He also asked us who are not affected to pray for them, that Jehovah may always take care of them in good health and safe... The picture showed they were having meeting outdoor with few seats, so some were standing, but a lot just sitting by the stone around... This is just a story from Palu Cong, I hope those in other ares are also in good condition...

    WOWW! The broadcast came on line at 6:44 AM Eastern Time! Very early this month. Anyway... The Search. That's the name of the new song from this month's broadcast. For those who would like the song in mp3 format for your phone, tablet, mp3 player, or whatever, it's in my collection of songs. As usual I'll leave the posting of lyrics to someone else.

    Our Indonesian brothers

    Yeah... I live in the west of Indonesia, while it happened near to the east... I dunno any brothers there in personal, but I attended meeting once while visiting my uncle (non jw)... Communication is quite hard since the earthquake, a lot of signal towers, roads, and bridges were destroyed, plus mountain slide or erosion, I even read news stated that aid or help is hard to delivered because people cannot reach the place by cars, I guess they are doing with plane or ship then? Thanks to Jehovah, my cousin send me a chat message this morning which means he is still okay I hope...

    Throwback from Rome.. Colosseum , Arch of Titus and Constantine I took this from an elevated platform overlooking the area. AN ANCIENT inscription found in the Colosseum of Rome, Italy, may indirectly confirm a Bible prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem. The inscription evidently has to do with the building and inauguration of the Colosseum in 80 C.E. As reconstructed by Professor Géza Alföldy of the University of Heidelberg, Germany, the inscription reads: “The Emperor Titus Vespasian Caesar Augustus had the new amphitheater erected with the proceeds of the booty.” What booty? “We are talking about the immense booty taken by Titus in the war against the Jews,” says Alföldy, “and in particular, the gold furnishings” of the temple in Jerusalem. This temple was destroyed in fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy. (Matthew 24:1, 2; Luke 21:5, 6) Alföldy concludes that the Colosseum—along with the famed Arch of Titus, which depicts the Roman victors loaded with the booty taken in the Jewish war—is a monument to this historic victory of the Romans.

    Sometimes being in service is enjoying Jehovah's creation. I took this on my phone when I was out in service.

    Yes, it was scary... I live far away from the place, but my uncle is living there, the shoreline is exactly in front of his house... He is in Malaysia for doing medical check up now, so out of the earthquake and tsunami, but not the house... From what I heard, his house was destroyed badly and his children are evacuating to higher place... We still cannot contact my cousins due to the crash of communication... I hope and pray they are in safe condition...

    WhatsApp with You?

    Here in Italy, practically everyone uses WhatsApp! There's no limit to the length of messages you can send. You can also use bold, italic, strikethrough and extrawide text and endless smileys. You can send photos, videos (even those that are too large to send via normal email), documents, links... You can make voice calls and video calls. And if you have unlimited wi-fi (as we do), then all this is totally free! Personally, I use WhatsApp to stay in touch with relatives in Australia and friends in Italy, Venezuela, USA, Canada, Ghana, Spain and Slovenia. It's amazing! On a congregation level we have two WhatsApp groups: The congregation group and each service group. The elders remind us of congregation or service group arrangements for field service, or of any changes due to weather or other circumstances. They also inform us of other congregation activies. When we have assemblies or conventions they use WhatsApp to make sure everyone has transport or accomodation. Recently, before the CO's visit, our service overseer used it to complete the appointments for field service. Each member of the group is free to post anything of interest - experiences, photos, videos. Sometimes someone will use it to find a companion for field service. One brother visited the new World Headquarters and then shared his photos with us all. Often brothers will post photos from field service. In winter, we often share photos of how each family is snowed in!! We have a lot of fun! I must add that our congregation is in the mountains in a sparsely populated area and we're all spread out in many little villages. The families tend to be rather isolated from each other. For example, my husband and I are the only witnesses in our village. So our use of WhatsApp actually contributes in a way to our unity.

    Have you ever felt the urge to

    Several months ago I ran into an older brother at a doctors office, I was surprised to find out that he was in a elderly care facility. I told him that I'd visit him soon. A couple of weeks later I went by to visit and he was very glad to have a visitor. I didn't know that day was the 10th anniversary of his wife's death. It was a perfectly timed unplanned visit...

    Thank so much to all my spiritual brothers and sisters here. I love research,so I appreciate this group immediately cause I able to benefit from the different viewpoint and also enhanced my thought 💭 on what I already understand from my personal research. Also I recieve topics or questions that also send me to do more digging for spiritual food. I feel like I’m at spiritual table with all here. Just enjoying this wholesome food together with Jehovah blessing.
