  1. The first six are from the Monthly Program, and brother Morris / brother Mantz talks are the morning worships (both are showing up already on JW Broadcasting>Programs and Events>Morning Worships). They upload them early this month! Audio/Video Department must be on full work mode this month (Gilead Graduation, Annual Meeting, Great Tribulation announcement 😄, etc)...
  2. Living on a coast town can get you a easy sunburn after a service morning during most days of the year, specially on summer. I always use an umbrella or a good hat.
  3. Actually, things are moving fast in terms of the relief efforts and repairing/rebuilding phase. The DRC is finishing works in almost every zone in the island. The KH that were being used as relief centers are being back to their normal use. And we can't stop to thank Jehovah and to express our love and thank you to all the brothers and sisters that came and helped us thru these months! We've almost had our series of this year Regional Conventions, and the last one (the biggest one in terms of assigned congregations) is in two weeks (that's the one we're assigned). Also, we're in the middle of a big reorganization of congregations and circuits throughout the island, with almost 70 congregations being merged or reorganized, including ours. So this is my last Convention in our congregation, as on September 1 we'll start on a new congregation (they reassigned brothers and territory from ours to two nearby congregations). It's been exciting times, and it will come better ones I the future, everything to praise Jehovah! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J320A using Tapatalk
  4. The last page of the Study WT for November 2018 dedicates an article to the donations page with a (maybe) new URL (http://donate.jw.org), which directs to the Donations page. Maybe the brothers are planning to change the page to the same format as the Meetings/Assemblies/Convention page. If they do that, it will be a good page to place this video.
  5. For me is: Monday - February Broadcasting Sunday - Circuit Assembly Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J320A using Tapatalk
  6. I think it will feel the same with Spanish. We are having a small taste during the CBS with the "Jesus, the way, the truth, the life" book. Altough the book use direct translated scriptures from the NWT English version, you read verses in a simple Spanish, easier to understand. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J320A using Tapatalk

  8. At this moment, no. After the hurricane another problem appeared: my mother-in-law's cancer chemo treatment didn't work as expected, and she got worse. Now all the family is in this situation. But some brothers and sisters from our congregation are working with the Relief Committee in a nearby KH. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J320A using Tapatalk
  9. 106 Kingdom Halls... that's about 1/3, almost half of the KH here in the island. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J320A using Tapatalk

  11. First of all, thanks for all the prayers of all of you and thanks to Jehovah for all His love thru all the brothers and sisters that have come and helped us thru all these months and the ones to come. You all have been a 'source of great comfort' for all of us here - Col. 4:11. Things have been slowly getting back to normal (emphasis on slowly). Power is still the main issue. Almost 4 months after the hurricane, only half of the island have electricity. A good number of Kingdom Halls (ours included) are using diesel or gas generators for the meetings. Almost 70% of our brothers in our KH don't have power. Meetings varies from Sunday only (Weekly and weekend meetings, short versions of both in the same day) to normal throughout all the island. Many brothers lost their homes and there have been many KH damaged. Some congregations have been reassigned to others halls. But the love of our brothers and sisters is amazing. It's truly Jehovah's spirit in action. The next weekend after the storm, the first time we got to meet, we received the first gift. A video talk by Br. Sanderson about the first response of the organization after the Hurricanes. Next weekend after that, we got a big surprise. Even we weren't in an English circuit, we got to see the Annual Meeting... and we sang all the songs in English! Next weekend after that, the CO came. And what a talk he gave! He reminded of the love that God has for his servants and that he doesn't forget them. And he encourage us to keep our spiritual routine. It was so hot that day, he had took his jacket off to give the talk. (Generator only runs lights and sound, not A/C). And about a month ago, a special program was transmitted from the Assembly Hall to all the congregations in the island. Two members of the US branch came and gave an update on the relief efforts that are going on here. At this time, the organization of the Relief Commitee is astounding. Through the island are Relief Centers (two circuits by center) that supervise the assignments of giving food, water and (now) repairing and rebuilding homes. And even that some are without electricity, that doesn't stop them from coming to meetings and field service. Now we have big groups for service, and even for Public Preaching have new volunteers. Again, thanks for all your prayers, and may Jah bless you with blessings like the one he has given (and keeps giving) us everyday. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J320A using Tapatalk
  12. At this time power and Internet are still up in my area. Hurricane now near St. Croix with winds up to 175 mph. It is expected to arrive here in 8 hours with winds of 160 mph aprox. We of 're now under winds of 40-50 mph. Still no words from our brothers on Dominica/Guadeloupe, but photos that are surfacing paint a major disaster for both islands. We are still praying to Jehovah for everyone of them. And now also for our brothers in Mexico. And for our entire brotherhood around the world.
  13. Report from Puerto Rico... again... Meetings have been suspended for the rest of the week. Ours is on Saturday, pending the condition of roads and the outcome. We are expecting Cat 5 winds (155mph+) for more than 6 straight hours... and rain... a lot of rain... More to report soon... We're praying here for all our brotherhood and specially for our brothers in the Antilles.
  14. Here we go again... https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/tropical-storm-hurricane-maria-lesser-antilles We're not completely recovered from Irma, power is not stable at this time (this morning, power went down and came late in the afternoon) and we go for another round again. @Mods: Maybe we'll need a thread for Trop Storm (Probably Hurricane) Maria.
