  1. The Elder acknowledged and apologized e didn’t submit. He ask me if I forgive him “ Yes I replied “😘💕🤷🏽‍♀️. What am I going to do. I did ask him if he could resubmit the application and he said “ No, but he’ll ask another Elder”. I leave it in Jehovah’s hand. Thank you Friends for your comments and support.
  2. Oh my heart went out to you my Brother Luke. Yes, this is what I'm thinking about. Does Jehovah have a plan for me, or will something happen which I will look back and say ' Oh, glad my application was not submitted'. This is why I'm nonchalant about it. I could have made a big to do about it (call the Service Overseer to see if he signed my application) but I'm leaving it in Jehovah's hand. Not only I wanted to attend the Convention, I also wanted to see a dear Sister Friend of mine from 'across the pond' in England. She like me, have 'children who are sleeping in death'. I have the funds for the trip but I am more incline of spending my funds for the Convention and seeing my Sister. Thank you and your mom is back at the meetings!! HOORAY!! HORRAY!
  3. Thank you my Brother. Yes, you live and learned. Our Brothers are imperfect. Duly noted. I hope Jehovah opens a door for me- which is why I'm ' ok' with whatever the outcome. I w
  4. Mia, I'm just in shock. I guess it will hit me when my Friends will start to talk about the trip. I called one of my Best Friends and she is upset but it has not hit me yet. I wonder if I should text my Service Overseer, I'm sure he would remember those who applied. But I'm hesitant. I will wait until Friday to hear from the Secretary. Who knows what 2019 will bring. I was thinking of applying for a new job and did not (more vacation time) and I will have to move, so... who knows only our Father. I have no ill toward the Elder. I really like them and it was a mistake or an oversight. I am known as a 'Nagger', I would have text him, call him for any update - if he were my former Secretary. Thanks for all the 😥
  5. Well, I text my Secretary to ask if he knows the status of my application, since some Friends in our Hall were selected as they 'applied as a group'. So, it turns out, my application which I vividly recall submitting to the Brother (by hand) was not entered
  6. Well, I text my Secretary to ask if he knows the status of my application, since some Friends in our Hall were selected as they 'applied as a group'. So, it turns out, my application which I vividly recall submitting to the Brother (by hand) was not entered into the system. I ask him "I thought the Service Overseer had to sign off? He said ' yes,' , so no copy was made? I just moved into the Hall recently and I love and appreciate my Elders. I was not ask to participate with the other group who I go out in service with many of times, so it is ok. I was nonchalant and said ' it's ok'. He told me he will check the file cabinet (maybe he filed it) at the Hall on Friday. If it was his mistake ' he'll send me on vacation in the New World'. I replied " I will come and find you for sure' .
  7. I love this site! Thank you Brother Carlos! I just read paragraph 18. A faithful sister in my Hall (Hubby was a Presiding Overseer) yes, that far long ago. I think it's depression or I do not know and neither does she. However we both became True Friends (Prov 17:17) as my hubby is 'still upset' or I do not know. Sorry for my rambling. But, the article spoke volume to me. Thank you for your research- so appreciative. I will definitely make this a matter of personal study and share with my 'Spiritual Auntie'.
  8. I can feel the love from your post. Hope they are both blessed and continue serving Jehovah.
  9. My take away after reading this sentence " Do not let the apathy of others discourage or dissuade you from keeping on the watch. You know better. " You know better! It maybe Family or the householders which may discourage us but ' You know better', seems frank and straight to the point. I needed to read this!
  10. What if a family member who is a Witness provided you with their opinion about raising children, marriage counsel and you are a 'shrewd person' and do not take their advice as you are walking modestly with God. Can this person say you are not following Jehovah's principle? I just loved this morning daily text. We live only for Jehovah and no other humans/family included.
  11. Despite our trials, tribulations, sickness, Jehovah is the one who 'energizes' those who are looking forward to the New World. I really enjoyed this daily text. Now, when Friends compliment me, not only I can say ' it's Jehovah' but now can cite Philippians 2:13. Jehovah is the one who energizes me to not give up and keep running this course.
  12. I heart you brother Alan! Thank you! One of my favorite scriptures. Thank you so much. I will always remember this. 🤗
  13. I really needed to read this! Thank you! Going through alot with my husband and son. I want to runaway😕 and just live by myself. Yes, I know Jehovah is stronger/powerful than Satan but at times I know I'm on Jehovah's side but some way or the other, I fold and want to just leave because physically it's the two of them. I KNOW my Father is with me, I just have to stop being anxious and continue praying fervently to him. Thanks for letting me vent on this post.
  14. This is where I recalled 5 years in advance. WOW!! Thank you- I will re-watch again.
  15. The title maybe off but I heard the Society (Brothers) start to think about the program 5 years in advance? For example our 2018 Be Courageous Regional Convention, when did our Brothers have time to put this magnificent/awe-inspiring/no words to describe (I loved it that much) program together? YES!! It could not be achieved without Jehovah's Holy Spirit but I'm just curious. Thank you in advance.
