  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. All Things LDC

    BA email arrived today!!!! Accounts... linked (with some troubleshooting, nothing major) Name... Text messages... Emergency contact... OK Skills.... woa... This is going to take time... But still, it's for Jehovah! It's the best life ever!
  5. Now that the forecast track changed (east vs west), I have a cousin who lives in Tampa and her husband & three children. Haven't heard from her since yesterday, I think she may have changed plans from staying to moving to shelter/other brother's home. Hope and pray they're ok. In any case, they were ready to follow the elders instructions. Down here, some if us are without power and water, but that didn't stop us from organizing a big recollection of food, water, and supplies for our brothers in the islands (Barbuda, St. Thomas, St. Marteen, Antigua, etc). We filled the Assembly Hall dining room and brothers keep coming and coming with all kinds of help. Truly and simply, Jehovah's people showing love in action!
  6. I'm here! Thanks to Jehovah here in Puerto Rico we barely had the brunt of the storm. But let me tell you in what situation we are with only estimated winds of 90-95mph. We are without power/water in 90% of the island. We have big old trees ripped of from their roots. There are places under water and is still raining. There are closed roads by water, or fallen trees or cables all over. And again, we barely had winds. We have seen images (via phones) from Barbuda, St. Marteen, St. Thomas, and the situation is worse overthere. This week it was supposex to start our CO visit, and also, a big construction work on our KH by LDC. The CO visit was suspended, the construction work now is pending, because they may need the LDC brothers to move to those island for disaster relief. We thank Jehovah for our great brotherhood who is praying for us. And here we're praying for our brothers and sisters in those islands who may need our help. To our brothers in the path of Irma, LISTEN TO THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE ELDERS. LISTEN TO THE AUTHORITIES. DON'T THINK THIS CAN'T AFFECT YOU. IT WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE. May Jehovah bless you all. I'll try to post more soon.
  7. The last part of the last video (not the greetings one, the one before that), I didn't see it coming... Beautiful program this month.
  8. I want to go back!!!!! And we celebrated this year's convention in the same venue! I miss everything!!! (And two brothers and one sister from my congregation appear on the video! And my brother-in-law!)
  9. I noted that too. At first I thought it was paraphrasing verses, but then read a big section of a Bible quote, and told myself, "this is not the actual NWT in Spanish..."
  10. And the JWPUB file for JW Library https://www.jw.org/download/?output=html&pub=jy&fileformat=JWPUB&alllangs=0&langwritten=S&txtCMSLang=S&isBible=0
  11. Is in Spanish!!!!! https://www.jw.org/es/publicaciones/libros/jesus/
  12. The Website. How Long?

    This is the oldest snapshot on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine site (catchy name): https://web.archive.org/web/19970414054705/http://www.watchtower.org:80/ It could be the first year, that's the site I remember.
  13. A letter was read? An announcement was made over there?
  14. 4 days 'til first convention in Spanish. Anyone know something?
  15. First, I cried when saw the Ortiz. Know them and haven't seen them since 2002. Pray to Jehovah to give them comfort until we see Paulie back in a world with true peace.. Now, happy news: NOTES (in May) AND STUDY BIBLE (this year) in JW LIBRARY!!! Refreshments at the India segments, count as BBQ!! That talk about reminders, perfect for helping to prepare our minds for taking notes at our Regional Conventions. For me, it was scary at first. But in the right context of the movie, I know that scene will convey the intended message.
