How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    Third Generation Witness - so Jehovah has been part of my life forever and I hope forever will mean just that. Was hoping my children would be the fourth generation, but at the moment that hope looks bleak.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I have many interests apart from spiritual interests which of course are my foremost. I am a foodie - love cooking (baking is okay but more cooking) - love writing short stories and reading ... I play the piano and draw portraits. I also love
    doing sign language. (NZSL).

    I love people in general, but mostly I love my brothers and sisters.
  • My favorite books
    The Bible is a given - otherwise I wouldn't be here but some secular books I enjoy - is the simple 'Lorax' by Dr. Seuss - (I have to think more about this one - don't have a lot of time to read secular literature).
  • My favorite music
    I love a wee bit of everything. Love the Beatles music but not their singing (I know that creates controversy), easy listening, SOME country - like "The Impossible" by Joe Nicols - songs that tell stories I think.
  • My favorite quotes
    See from the inside out, not from the outside in.

    (Sometimes it's hard to see people as Jehovah sees them but I do try).

  1. My Grandmother who was a witness, hated swearing, but when she got mad she would say: Blast the rocks, Damn the river and sweep the bloody butchershop!
  2. Your BOTTOM 10 Foodlist

    oooh oops it's sashimi - not shushimi haha - I just googled it too!
  3. Your BOTTOM 10 Foodlist

    There is a big fly that visits some African country - it's huge and black - and they come in swarms like locusts - the children of the village gather these flies and they are made into patties - aparently the protein obtained from these are very important to their overall diet.
  4. Your BOTTOM 10 Foodlist

    Although they may smell and taste the same - the texture you described above does not sound the same unless you eat the shell of the shrimp (and some do). I"ll stick with my shrimp, prawns and raw oysters haha. (But wouldn't rule out trying locusts either) - people spitroast tarantulas on an open fire in some countries too and when you analyse their makeup they are put together very much like a lobster. So I see that reasoning. Yes yes yes!! People reject sushi because they don't like raw fish! One of my favourite sushi is teriyaki chicken with avocado or smoked eel, the only 'raw' shushimi type sushi I like is raw salmon or tuna - everything else has cooked meat or no meat at all.
  5. Your BOTTOM 10 Foodlist

    Weird thing is i LOVE kidneys, i think its the texture of liver i don't like.
  6. Your BOTTOM 10 Foodlist

    Heh ... Bacon Cauliflower Liver Broadbeans Cottage cheese Burger rings Bacon and Eggs pies Badly made curries (too hot and no flavour) Wasabi chocolate Roast Beef There we go - more difficult than the other list.

    They are a rare commodity now ... and no they aren't touching any of Jehovah's people.
  8. Regards from Venezuela

    If I may pop in here ... I feel like you do Brandon the second Brother Daniel confirmed the news reports at the beginning of this thread - I became acutely aware of how much we have versus how little they have (and I have to add the joy and love I received from conversing with Brother Daniel has humbled me). Even having a bigish meal here, my thoughts would turn to the Venezuelens, the non witnesses too. I think this economic disaster has really got under my skin .. the atrocities, deprivations and the feeling of hopelessness must prevail in the community. I've also learnt something important, and that is how Jehovah takes care of his people ... so if you want to brainstorm - your frist stop and I'm sure you are doing this more than I've done, is Jehovah ... his arrangements ... its amazing how Jehovah can filter through help discreetly. So what we have to do as individuals is trust in his processes and channels. If Jehovah opens up a few doors over and above that on a personal level, then that's just a cherry on the top.
  9. Regards from Venezuela

    Dear Brother Daniel ... I'm constantly on the outlook for a change in Venezuela ... just keep hanging in there. When it is all over the depth of Jehovah's help while apparent now, will be moreso when we all look at it - when reports are able to be reported more freely.
  10. Mate, my accent is different to Brother Gregs ya know!! We are more refined in our accent ...than the Aussies ... oh I mean ... Brother Carlos our spoken accentuation is much more refined than our Australian counterparts. I see a challenge in your post.
  11. Well I hope you and Peanuts meet up for Tea and Scones Josie ... waiting to hear report of your meet. haha. Ooops sorry Bob ... off topic. My bad.
  12. Regards from Venezuela

    Could you explain more about the exchange rate please Brother Antonio - do US$ equate to quite a bit more in your currency?
