    Confused button

    Sometimes we are truly confused of what others has commented... As me, lack understanding of English and cultural difference cause it, yet I don't press the button everytime I feel so... In some cases, I even changed my button when I saw others have different reaction with me... Peer pressure huh?
  2. I mean the need greaters, Indonesian law strictly allows only foreigners with missionary visa can do the religious teaching activities, even in the cong... As a sister, I dunno much about cong procedure, but we received specific instruction from BOE on how to accompany few need greaters when they came to my cong this year... They stayed for 3 months, and since they were easily to be recognized as foreigners by physical traits, they were not encouraged to speak up while doing house to house unless local publisher invite them to do so. It's not restriction, it's because local publishers read the situation of house holder better than them... If condition is conducive, they can talk... Even they can do house to house, it should be under company of local publishers, and some territories are avoided, such as muslims or governmental area... When people're asking about what they are doing here, they can't tell that they are helping the ministry, they are encouraged to tell that they are here to learn Indonesian culture... Of course, the case is different with locals and those coming with missionary visa such as missionaries, bethelites, or any which are assigned to serve here by branch I was only referring to Mandi's post about preaching in other countries with tourist visa, the law is strict here on what you can do just by tourist visa, like you can't work (we all know it), so you are considered to also not preach, unless you have missionary visa...
  3. Same with Indonesia, few need greaters have been deported because of the issue, doing ministry discreetly is very important here esp when you talk to people from several background... However, when I visited some "liberal" countries, there's no such issue to join house to house ministry with any kind of visa...

      I will be home latter this evening Ivy .....just send me a message. Don't despair as Greg says, this too shall pass learn to

      just go with it until it passes and I assure you it will. Jehovah never leaves us in the " ash heap " for long. Think of Job all he could do for a period of time is sit and scrape his wounds, if that's all you can do right now, please don't beat yourself.


      Sending hugs

    Keto, IF and OMAD...

    Anybody has problem with bowel movement during the diet? I haven't make it for few days...
  8. Thank you for the link Chris... Please keep praying for those affected and trying to help, I heard a lot of bad secular news regarding how hard it is for them to give the aid and rescue
  9. Maybe... One affected brother shared an update, two screen shots and a picture were shared around jws here... But, I'm hesitated to share it since I'm not the owner and I dunno the brother in personal... However, It looked valid, the update said that all members of palu cong is safe, evacuation arrangement has been made, and he shared this information to ease others who may be worried about them... They still held a meeting by using what was available, spiritual food and brotherhood strengthen them, and in the moment, food supply is adequate, rescue aid has been made. He also asked us who are not affected to pray for them, that Jehovah may always take care of them in good health and safe... The picture showed they were having meeting outdoor with few seats, so some were standing, but a lot just sitting by the stone around... This is just a story from Palu Cong, I hope those in other ares are also in good condition...
  10. Some close to me call me Yan...
  11. When you mean for historical reference, is it for work or school? I may read it for fulfilling those responsibilities, but I will not read it for a hobby, sometimes more emotion attached when you are doing something for own pleasure.... Or even just news may affect our view... But, I am not US Citizen, it may not affect my view a lot, not my country huh?
  12. I love Kiwi... It contains quite high amount of Vit C... One of my fav fruit
