  1. Same with Spanish. Sometimes in the territory when we use texts from Revelation (Revelacion in Spanish), some people get confused. Then we’ll say Apocalipsis and then they’ll get it. In some publications in Spanish, when Revelation is cited, it looks a bit like this: Revelacion (o Apocalipsis) 21:3,4. I wonder if they’ll use Apocalipsis in the Spanish revision of the NWT. I also wonder if they’ll go with Santa Biblia (Holy Bible) in the title instead of Santas Escrituras (Holy Scriptures). Some of the newer revised editions in other languages have made that change.
  2. He’s also a member of the United States Branch Committee I believe.
  3. That’s incredible. The amount of cooperation needed for that is beyond amazing. Are the languages similar to one another? I’m not familiar with them.
  4. I noticed that as well. Same thing in the new Bible Lessons book that was released at the convention. Compare the quoted scriptures to the Bible we have now. You’ll see the differences. So much easier to understand. Just a taste of the revised Spanish bible. Can’t wait for it! Very excited for our Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian brothers and sisters! Must have been amazing to see all three bibles being released at the same time. I’m sure Brother Morris had his hands full trying to hold all three at once if he had printed copies with him on the platform. Lol.
  5. I’m trying to find the talk and I can’t find it. Can you link it via a private message?
  6. Wonderful news! Can’t wait to hear talks from him, see him on JW Broadcasting, and get to know a little more about him. Maybe they’ll do an interview with him on an upcoming broadcasting so we can get to know him.
  7. Leave it to Brother Herd to make the announcement funny and to build up suspense. He has a great sense of humor. A friend told me once that they went to a convention he was at and when he made the announcement of the new release, he picked up the envelope and said “what do we have here? Too big to be a tract or brochure. It’s not plastic, so we know it’s not a dvd. Oh look! It’s a new book!”. Happy for all you Italian brothers and sisters. They’ve been on a roll lately releasing revised NWTs. I love it. Hopefully Spanish will be soon.
  8. I took a last minute trip to visit family in Jersey last summer. Although Warwick was completely booked for tours, I decided that although I won't be able to get in, I just want to see the front gate. I was staying about 10 minutes away so I couldn't resist. You are absolutely right Shawn when you say it's off the beaten path. I thought I got lost when looking for it. I was able to visit Wallkill and I talked to a brother who was visiting Wallkill from Warwick and he joked around saying "I think they took the advice of going to the mountains a bit too literally". I did see the entrance and was satisfied. I didn't linger. I just drove by, saw it, made a u turn and saw it again. Lol. It encouraged me to plan ahead. Now I'm planning a trip for next year to visit all three facilities!
  9. Brother Breaux's talk was great. Those two experiences were great. The brother was humble enough to recognize that his work on the assembly hall committee did not define his worth to Jehovah and he humbly accepted the change in assignment. The scary district overseer was touching as well. I'm sure we've all come across brothers and sisters that can be intimidating but it shows us that they may have a whole different side to them that we may not know about.
  10. Wow. Just when you think you’ve seen and heard it all. The world has always been bad but these past few weeks have been terrible and it’s gonna get worse.
  11. I love Discord. Such a great app for communication. It’s really big in the gaming community. My username on there is Crash.
  12. Love the instrumental arrangement of song 44. Can’t wait for new ones to be posted.
  13. Very nice! It was released in Hungarian this weekend. Love seeing all these languages getting their revised bibles or some for the first time. The GB and translation committees are really on top of things. I’m praying for all those working on those committees and a little extra for the Spanish committee. Lol. Can’t wait for that moment. It’ll be so emotional.
  14. It was released in Indonesian today at the special convention. Brother Sanderson announced the release. Happy for those brothers and sisters. Still patiently awaiting the Spanish release. Lol.
  15. When I visited in Wallkill earlier this year, a brother in the tour group asked the tour guide if printing is being reduced due to the number of publishers with tablets. He said that some publications are being reduced like bound volumes and others of that sort. But the majority of publications are not being cut down. The reason is that there are still a good number of publishers in poor countries and even in affluent countries that can’t afford tablets and electronic devices. It wouldn’t be fair to them. He added that they are taking measures to not overproduce printed publications. Things like not having printed releases at the conventions anymore are part of that. Also, when literature servants put orders in, they are told to order only what is necessary and not to have an extreme surplus. This is to take care of those who don’t have access to JW library and jw.org. He said that the GB doesn’t want these ones to feel like they are missing out just because they don’t have a mobile device. Very kind and encouraging comments the tour guide made about this. Shows that the GB is really making sure everyone gets food at the proper time while making sure that they are using funds and supplies in a wise way so that there is no waste and what is printed is actually being used.
