  2. In the Australian news today

    That's what makes it frustrating Ray, even without all the facts and the complete background of what happened here people are so quick to judge. It's one of the reasons I am disliking facebook more and more.
  3. This is in the news today here in Australia, as you can imagine it has given many people ammunition to attack our faith and many misinformed people are upset by this, it always makes me angry to read the horrible comments, I just want to get in there and defend Jehovah but I know it will turn bad. Why do people refuse to even go to our website and get all the facts it's so sad, they are accusing us of not even being Christian, poor Jehovah. https://au.news.yahoo.com/a/26997728/jehovah-witness-mum-to-be-dies-after-refusing-blood-transfusion/?cmp=fb

      Happens to all of us hey sis! We always feel so much better once it's over and like we've accomplished something though and it feels great knowing Jehovah would be so happy with our efforts :) Hope your demos go well! xx

  5. Apparently I am a Greek :)

    Definitely Egyptian here hahaha, cool pics!
  6. It's 8am here in Australia and I woke up half an hour ago to this terrible news I pray for all those effected, what a horrible scene and horrible wicked world we live in
  7. I know what you're saying Rosie, I guess what I meant is that Jehovah's organisation is highly persecuted as it is, Jesus told us this would happen when he said if they hated him they would hate us too and that he was no part of the world, so it kind of gives the world another avenue to attack the Witnesses.
  8. Yes it's sad that it's now come out that Holt was in fact a witness, I saw a photo from his wedding in the Kingdom Hall, it seems that he had started to become inactive though or possibly even disfellowshipped seeing as his meeting attendance was irregular. The sad thing is that now it brings reproach upon Jehovah's name, the world is going to read that Whitney's killer was a witness himself and just conclude that he was behaving as a proper witness would, I don't think they would really grasp the concept of irregular or inactive or fallen away, to them one of Jehovah's Witnesses is just that.
  9. It's so heartbreaking, the poor sweet girl, what she must have gone through, I pray Jehovah helps her family get through this terrible time:( Prov 2:21,22
  10. This is just awful awful news, I pray Jehovah gives her family and her congregation the strength they need to get through this no matter what the outcome. I am on the verge of tears just thinking about this, please please come home safe and sound if you can Whitney:(
  11. Post a picture... Any picture

    Woops, just realised one of the photos didn't work! ;) Ah that will be nice for you Gabe, congrats to your brother!

    Hi all! Wasn't really sure what to post in here first so I'll start with a photo of the city I live in, Brisbane Australia, I do love living here
  14. London 2012

    Yes yes! Love the Olympics currently watching the opening ceremony but I love the diving and swimming events and all the gynmastics! Enjoy!
  15. Just read about this one via email, I really feel for this poor sister and her family, such a sad outcome but isn't she taking it so humbly and graciously?! She is just glad that it may help others in the same position later and now she looks forward to her resurrection, so sad yet so beautiful. The article said "State officials had argued in court that there was no medical necessity for a bloodless transplant, and that her religious preference shouldn’t determine insurance coverage." It has EVERYTHING to do with religious preference, Jehovah is SO real to us and breaking his laws are a big deal to his servants, it's just so sad that man doesn't see this, well we know why they don't but it still sad. Thank goodness Jehovah is going to undo all the harm man has done.
