  1. Hello Sister Sally, I don't think there is one best thing to say, but here are some of my thoughts. Sorry they are not in any particular order. You could try to get yourself in the same mindset. Put yourself in their shoes. Be Empathetic. Romans 12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. If you don't get the results you expect. It may take time and repeated visits. Don't give up in trying Let them know that you haven't seen them in a while and you wanted to call to ask how they are doing. Ask them how they would feel about a visit. Just in case, If you do get a chance to visit, don't be alarmed by any wild talk they may say. Just listen without judging. If they are Ill or in hospital https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/101977488 https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/101991162 Where appropriate: Share with them good news from the kingdom hall, or an experience. Ask them if they need help with anything. Run an errand for them perhaps? Find out if they are getting meeting by phone line or some other tie in. Offer to watch something together on JW broadcasting. Offer to have them just accompany you in field service. Offer to sit together at the meeting. Offer to make them a meal to share together.
  2. Things have certainly gone from bad to worst and it is more evident as each day passes. Take every precaution you can to make yourselves feel safe as you continue to preach in these very last days. If we are disturbed by the news we hear, we can be certain that the general public are much closer to - faint out of fear -than we are. Right now we can be happy that they still verbally tell us to get the bleep out of their yard instead of shooting first and asking questions later. Maybe we should be thinking ahead of time of what to say if we are caught in an unfavorable situation. Jehovah teaches us that An answer when mild turns away rage. What are some answers or suggestions we can share with one another?
  3. Beautiful song to remind us that now matter how alone we may have felt in the past, we were never truly alone. Jehovah was always with us then and Jehovah is still with us now,

    1. ivy

      ivy

      Yup! Esp the chorus, it touched my heart every time I listen and sang that part in Indonesian...

       

      Translating the song into mother tongue truly helping us to walk in the truth

    2. cerebral ecstasy

      cerebral ecstasy

      No doubt.  I found this mp3 in my downloaded files on my tablet the yesterday and I started to listen to it, I had to wash my face before I left for service because I would have shown up all weepy eyed LOL. 

  4. I was eating a Banana today and as I looked at it, I wondered and thinking to myself.... all the wonderful things Jehovah has made in wisdom. He made this banana just for me. He made so many fruits and vegetables before man existed. How did he figure out that we would enjoy them before man came to be created? Jehovah is the master planning department second to none. Gen 9:3 says - Every moving animal that is alive may serve as food for you. Just as I gave you the green vegetation, I give them all to you. It says may, not must. Jehovah gave us permission to eat meat, he did not command us to eat it.
  5. I remember growing up and hearing some say - This is my Armageddon car.....just goes to show, you never know.
  6. Why didn't I get a copy of the schedule?
  7. The arrests don't stop. First couple to be imprisoned. Latest news from JW.ORG https://www.jw.org/en/news/jw/region/russia/first-witness-couple-imprisoned-20180713/
  8. I'm not sure If I posted this already but it still deserves a repost.
  9. Ah, yes, it's nice to see even the different trees around the world. Thanks for pointing out that they are gum tree's Lucy. Interesting to note where in the world fences and gates and bars and locks are needed and where they are not.
  10. As much as I love all things tech related, sadly, I have too many memory leaks and corrupt memory locations to make a go of it. There are so many free resources on the web. How far along are you in programming? beginner, intermediate, advanced? Not sure if this helps, but its worth a looksee. Resources for programmers. https://www.thefreecountry.com/ Or if your curiosity pokes n peeks you. (such an old joke) http://www.tutorialspoint.com/assembly_programming/assembly_basic_syntax.htm If I understand correctly and your someday interested in pcb as in ( printed circuit boards) invest in a decent sized breadboard. Here is a company where you can get pretty much any components. www.digikey.com
  11. Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures. That is so cool that there is a monument at the middle of the world.
  12. I don't know about everyone else, but whenever I pass a Kingdom Hall, my heart skips a beat. Our kingdom halls are precious to us and dear to our hearts. And for this we praise and thank Jehovah.
  13. I thought this might be an interesting use of Google Maps. Here is a link to my Kingdom Hall https://goo.gl/maps/M3U7K9BNxPw And a nice spot at the boardwalk. Last week the bushes were full of flowers and the scent from them filled the air. it was so nice. https://goo.gl/maps/TpDuPHQp9QB2

    CONFETTI

    Yes, growing up, I enjoyed eating the confetti when going to the weddings. It was normal to also wrap a handful of confetti in a mesh doily and leave them at the tables and /or also attach it to the thank you gifts. During the dancing part, the children would go around asking for the ones left on the tables. They were to yummy to ignore. I'm sure there are many Italian bakeries that even just sell them in bulk. Ahhh, memories.
  15. What wonderful good news. It brought joyful tears to my eyes. Reminds me of the three Hebrews who remained healthier looking than the rest. Jesus did say, Man must live not on bread alone but on every utterance coming from Jehovah's mouth.
