  1. https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=it?sl=en&sl=ru&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fjw-russia.org%2Fnews%2F18021922-288.html "The preliminary hearing will continue on February 21, 2018. Lawyers apply for the exclusion of a number of unacceptable evidence from the case."
  2. I recently had a similar problem on two different devices. Installed the JW Library app - and found hardly any publications on it! In the first case, after a few days everything was there. In the second case we only had to wait until the end of the meeting.
  3. Wow!! Thank you Vonny! And the extra features are there, too. https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/LatestVideos/pub-ivwc_3_VIDEO https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/LatestVideos/pub-ivwc_4_VIDEO https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/LatestVideos/pub-ivwc_5_VIDEO https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/LatestVideos/pub-ivwc_6_VIDEO
  4. Yesterday, half of Italy was connected with Rome via video for a special meeting. The other half today. Our guest speaker? Bro. Samuel Herd! We watched a video on the New World Translation then Bro. Herd began talking about the revised edition. At a certain point he said, "You're probably all wondering, 'when are we going to get this edition in our language?' [Pause] Well, what do you think is in this envelope?" You guessed it! There was a scream of excitement and non-ending applause as we finally received La Traduzione del Nuovo Mondo delle Sacre Scritture - in Italian!!!!
  5. Carlos, here is the link for the videos in Spanish. The first one in each group is the one referred to in the Workbook: https://www.jw.org/download/?pub=mwbv&issue=201712&langwritten=S

    Regards from Venezuela

    Dear Bro. Antonio, how are these two dear sisters now?

    Anyone from Australia here?

    Yesterday was the first day of autumn here - after an incredibly hot and dry summer. Perceived temperatures in the 50's (centigrade)!!! Global warming. Hope you enjoy your summer.
  8. "Despite the colossal pressure" our fine young 16-yr-old brother remained loyal. What an example of faith! May Jehovah continue to support and richly bless him and all our dear brothers and sisters in Russia!
  9. My heart aches for our precious Venezuelan brothers and sisters. At the same time, how encouraging to read of their wonderful spirit! “Spiritually, we have never been so prosperous. Our congregation meeting attendance has increased. More publishers are regular pioneering while at the same time exercising greater caution in the ministry. Since our neighbors know that we are strictly neutral and that we do not share in any of the criminal activity plaguing the country, they welcome the Bible-based message of hope and comfort we share.” Does anyone know what has happened to the 680 brothers and sisters who've been kidnapped?

    Hello Sally! I'm from Melbourne - Heidelberg congregation. But I live in Italy now - in the centre of the island of Sardinia.
  11. Thank you, Bro. Manfred. I always like to check the accuracy of anything I share but in this case I wasn't sure how to go about it. I checked the theme of the convention and verified that it was, indeed, "Don't Give Up!" in Russian, so I thought I could risk sharing. I must admit, I did think that the number getting baptized was rather excessive for an attendance of 4,500!
  12. This morning I received the following WhatsApp message from my former circuit overseer: "This past weekend, the Finland Bethel organized a Zone Convention in Helsinki for our dear Russian brothers. The Finnish brothers opened their homes to the Russian brothers whom they didn't know personally, providing 4,500 delegates with accomodation, food and transport to the Convention for all three days. Despite the fact that most Finns don't speak a word of Russian, love helped to overcome the linguistic barriers (John 13:35). Brother Mark Sanderson, of the Governing Body, was amongst those present, having come specifically to strengthen our persecuted brothers." He also sent me a video of the baptismal candidates at this convention: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i6cr4a3e3k1bynj/VID-20170626-WA0002.mp4?dl=0
  13. Maybe this is the explanation: "The Noviks' path to the Family Glory award was a long one. First, they were approved by the municipal authorities in Petrozavodsk. Then they were nominated by the regional government of Karelia -- in 2015. After that, nothing but silence until they were informed in April -- the same month as the Supreme Court decision -- that they had been selected." https://www.rferl.org/a/russia-jehovah-s-witness-family-award-extremist-putin/28546976.html
  14. My computer won't play the live video but it's playing on my tablet. How lovely to "be" with our dear brothers and sisters inside the Supreme Court as they wait for the decision!
