    Car talk...

    Maxima is a good car. V6 engine, good fuel efficiency and Japanese cars tend to last very long, it's user friendly. Of course, depending on what year model it is, if it's a new car, you will most likely have to deal with an electrical problem if anything goes wrong. Very easy to diagnose with a diagnostic tool you can get cheap on Ebay and find out what issue(s) you might have. Since you're buying it off of a friend, it's more trustworthy and safer. Hope you at least get to test drive it.
  2. A brother working on his sister's car ๐Ÿ˜ We usually wrench on cars together and it's fun! A lot of brothers and sisters like that๐Ÿ˜‹
  3. My first ever international convention (this year) in Oslo. What an experience ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have never seen so many Jehovas witnesses before and I met so many! I will never forget that + I had the privilege to help organize it. The assembly was split in half, mainly Norwigean, the other side was in English.

    What year model is that car?
  5. Hahha awesome, I'll give it a shot ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  6. I just wanted to express how grateful I'm for this talk given by Brother Seth Hyatt. Because sometimes I feel like I can control a situation, when I can't. And unfortunately, it happens a lot here among us young people, because we lack good sense. It can happen quickly and before you know it, it's too late. This talk definitely made me aware of it, to avoid doing something that only leads to disaster, no matter how exciting or tempting it can be. I wanted to share it here https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/LatestVideos/pub-jwb_201809_11_VIDEO
  7. That's true, but it helps a lot. I live in Europe and when we had real summer here (30 degrees), many got sunburnt, but I dealt with it fine. No doubts I would struggle in Australia because the heat there is extreme. Also depends on what environment you're from.

    Italy bridge collapse

    Yeah I saw that on the news today! Very sad ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข I believe it happened because there was a construction fail?
  9. Yeah this topic is something that made some brothers and sisters argue, rather than discussing because they couldn't respect each others view. Personally I think being vegan is something that I want to be. But since I live home, it's very difficult and eating meat. I feel like organic fruit and vegetables goes very well with my body. Although meat is something that taste very good, I think it's not that good to eat. For example, if you buy meat from the store, you can see that they have added a lot of ingridients in it, that is harmful for the body. Same goes for fruits too, but it's easier to identify it by reading PLU codes. That will tell you if it's gmo or organic.
  10. I've noticed it a lot lately as I got older and started working espescially. Try and talk about God and life in general, and most of them will either shake their heads or laugh. "Do you still believe in God?". I've tried to understand their view on life, and many agree that the way they live their life, is pointless. One said: "Life doesn't make sense. All we do is work, eat and sleep". I just feel like people are getting more distracted with everything that is going on. If you go to a big city, you will see ads everywhere, not to mention phones, internet etc... This makes people distracted from seeing Gods creation. They have their minds on getting as much money as possible and getting more items, because they actually believe that it will make them happy. And espescially among young people, I've noticed that they don't care. It's all about having fun and getting most out of life. You just see more of what 2. Timothy 3:1-5 is describing. It's very clear how loving Jehovah is, by being so patient until he will get into actions. And that motivates me to spend as much time as possible in the field service and preaching to as many as I can.
  11. Wow! Thank you so much for sharing, it really looks interesting.
  12. I'm so lucky that I have safety earphones with inbuilt bluetooth in it. So this allows me to listen and stream different things! I used to listen to music first, but then I listened to bible reading from KJV and I actually enjoyed that, but not so easy to understand. I know our website, JW.ORG, there are variety of files I could downlaod and listen to, but I just don't know what I would appreciate if anyone could share anything that can be interesting to listen to!
  13. Oh yes. Definetly facebook. I remember before, that I used to watch others profile and picture. And before I knew it, time went by and it wasn't really healthy for me to do that, because I would tend to feel jealous or compare it to my life. Now I have control over it. I use facebook really to communicate with friends and family. But I think you made a good decision. I think I could really benefit from it too and just stick to messenger really..
  14. In our congregation, most of us are used to it. And personally, I'm used to English, because it's a language that I use a lot when reading, writing and listening. The accent doesn't bother me either, I tend to focus on the message. But I can imagine that for some of our older brothers and sisters, it's a bit difficult. Good thing that we have accurate subtitles ๐Ÿ˜‰
