    Going out in service this morning, the eclipse is going to make an adventure. Maybe we could start a thread on it as it goes around, where we are and how it feels and looks?

    Getting ready to travel across country. Getting super nervous. It was this past weeks video  on courage that makes me  really see that we're living in that time now.  Traveling and visiting family and friends through Texas Arkansas Ohio Pennsylvania New York Virginia Tennessee North Carolina and Georgia. Praying that all goes well plan to be home the end of September.

    Mods please provide us with guidelines how forum members can financially contribute to offset expenses in maintaining and upgrading the site? It shouldn't be "an individual burden"
    Even "widow's coin" from many members would make a big change.

    Got about an hour of informal in doc's waiting room.  3 tracts. One lady was my former student and has been called on by two Sisters (who are also sisters) from our Local cong. Went to a couple of meetings at KH some years ago, but did not get the df arrangement. We had a long conversation and she said she really gets it now.  As it turns out, her current church is folding and she is looking for a new place to attend.

    Decided to try applying for something in research support.  Position involves recruiting individuals for MR related research, and by the look of it, could be modified to suit a part-time individual. Here's hoping!

    Oh my! My last living uncle passed away. He wasn't in the truth, but a real treasure. He had such a kind and gentle disposition, a lovely manner to imitate. Despite the fact he was a former pastor, he was completely unbiased and always respectful of my beliefs, and on a number of occasions even complimentary! One of a kind for someone in the world!

    One more day,
    I fight my fight,
    I struggle as I might.
    One more day,
    In this world of darkness and night,
    brings me closer to Jehovah's  kingdom of light.
    One more day,
    I remind myself  to endure
    to bring me closer to Jehovah's promised cure.
    One more day,
    I pray all day long
    with tears and a kingdom song.
    One more day,
    I pray for my spiritual family
    Instead of thinking of what ails me.
    One more day,
    Amongst  work mates who want me to stumble
    I focus on my integrity and to remain humble
    One more day,
    Encouragement to endure I share
    To prove to myself that for others I still care.
    One more day,
    I try hard to  patiently wait
    And not give in to my imperfect state.
    One more day,
    I rest my tired and weary self,
    To maintain this little  bit of health
     
    And as the day comes to and end
    I pray that  tomorrow on Jehovah I depend,
    With his help, I made it through one more day.

    Another day at the hospital, (yawn squared). My transport driver was a former student of mine, who did not finish to HS graduation, but has a decent job. I heard him out, and he is quite loquacious, to say the least - very engaging as a conversationalist, and fluent in both English and Spanish. His Born again Mom did a number on his self concept. I placed a tract, gave him a JW.org card, read a scripture and mentioned how my relationship with Jehovah has healed many deficits left over from imperfect childhood.

    Urgent prayers needed.
    We have our RC scheduled for 18th of August in a rented hall. And just few days ago the officials from the hall decided to cancel on our contract and at the moment we are left with no convention venue. There will be a final meeting tomorrow with the officials from the hall when we will know for sure if we can use the venue. The last few days we had the invitation campaign on hold, because we weren't sure if we will have a convention taking place at that time, but from today on, the branch committee decided to act in faith and we were encouraged to invite the public to the convention, even thought we don't know if we will have a convention at all.
    To make things worse, this is the first Romany RC in Macedonia, and romany brother are coming from all over Europe. It will be like mini - special convention. We are expecting about 2000 guests. Many of them have booked a hotel and things like that.
    Also, many local brothers have already asked for a work holiday on that specific date, since we were told about it 3-4 months ago.

    We have about 12 hours left from the moment I'm posting this, until we know the decision from the hall officials, so please pray specifically that we get approval to use the rented hall for the RC as we we're planning all along.

    3 studies today: Phone, in person, letter writing. Was dragging my feet on afternoon study: introducing the thought of avoiding blood transfusions as this lady has numerous health challenges. We cover Who are doing Jah's will today, Teach Book, and JW.org videos.  I saw the four minute video, Youtube, about the US military training in bloodless surgery at Englewood. Showed that first. She was surprised, but it made sense to her. I also told her my oncologist and neurosurgeon are on board with bloodless medicine. She was surprised how  many hospitals now have bloodless units.  Went better than I had prayed for.

    We're really living in the last days eh? Today as I'm getting closer to walk in to my building, a lady with a child by her side, another one in the stroller, she asked if I'll watch the baby for her while she gets the car (a supermarket very nearby). But I very nicely declined. Why? I don't know her, she doesn't know me. Maybe she felt she can trust we JW's which is true (I offered her a tract which she didn't accept that's how she knows). Yet, for all intent and purposes I am a STRANGER! As I continued to my building and turned around, the car had driven up to her. Strange. I just wasn't going to put myself in a possible perilous situation, chancing her to call "foul."
