    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...

    My ancestry DNA results!

    I'd love to do mine... and particularly my son's. I don't know a lot about his father's background beyond Black, American Indian and Filipino. I don't know much about my dad's ancestry, either.. but I've got my mom's tracked (not thru DNA) all the way past the 1600s in Devon. There is also mostly Irish and a bit of Welsh - and random other European mixes (German, French, Spanish). 'twould be fun!

    Some additional good points from the article: Read Hebrews 13:7. The word rendered “remember” can also be translated “mention.” Therefore, one way you can “remember those who are taking the lead” is by mentioning the Governing Body in your prayers. (Eph. 6:18) Reflect on their responsibility to supply spiritual food, to oversee the global preaching work, and to manage donated funds. Surely they need our persistent petitions in their behalf!

    Many years ago I personally a Witness family where the mom was born in a different country. The father and children were born in the U.S. The mom was perfectly content not being a U.S. citizen. U.S. citizenship didn't offer her anything beneficial. I was born in the U.S. but at this time, I am a legal resident of another country. If the politics here change, and I am required to become a citizen, I will be content to leave if becoming a citizen would require pledging to a flag, or taking some other type oath, etc.

    Just bought a copy for my family. It has a really good message in it about conscientious objection!

    w95 2/1 p. 31 QFR: "The Bible indicates that the ancient Philistines migrated from Caphtor to the southwestern coast of Canaan. (Jeremiah 47:4) Where was Caphtor? The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1979) notes: “Although the evidence does not permit a definitive solution, current scholarship points to the island of Crete (or perhaps Crete plus the Aegean Isles, which culturally belong together) as by far the most probable site.”—Volume 1, page 610 "In line with this, the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures reads at Amos 9:7: “‘Are you not like the sons of the Cushites to me, O sons of Israel?’ is the utterance of Jehovah. ‘Did I not bring Israel itself up out of the land of Egypt, and the Philistines out of Crete, and Syria out of Kir?’” "It is not known when this ancient sea people migrated from Crete to the section of Canaan that came to be called Philistia, the southwestern coastline between Joppa and Gaza. They seem to have already been in this region of low coastal plains in the days of Abraham and Isaac."—Genesis 20:1, 2; 21:32-34; 26:1-18.

    I'm not really sure how backing in will keep anyone from stealing gas from my truck the gas tank access is halfway down the driver side of the truck and can be reached just as easy if I pull in or back in

    "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. 🤣

    Your Favorite Illustrations!

    I once heard a wonderful CO give this encouraging illustration to the youth: Being in the truth as a young person is like flying a kite, and you feel like the kite can just keep flying up if it weren't for the string holding it down, so you cut the string. But as soon as you cut it, the kite falls down. The very thing you thought was holding it down, was what was keeping it up. And that's like the truth - as soon as you cut it out of your life, thinking you will take off, is when you fall down. Another illustration he gave was about how the leaves on the trees are most beautiful in the autumn, just as they are about to die. And that's what this system is like, it's more attractive the closer it gets to ending.
