Well, brother mike, it's your cup of tea. As for me, I'm interested in the stats section of the yearbook. After planting, watering, applying fertilizer etc farmers are interested in the weather report for the sake of the reports. It could determine the harvest or probably most times doesn't but they are interested all the same. It's better to have a report as a raw guide than leave the future to chance.

It's been mentioned before on other posts: The number of partakers is simply a number.  Going up or down is not of any concern.  The number could be very accurate or completely wrong. In the end Jehovah will decide.

Agreed. At one time we use to think the number of partakers was significant and directly indicated where we were in the stream of events. Not any more.

I'll need to find the exact reference but the brothers are clear that the number of partakers is just the number of partakers, we don't know if they are anointed or not and apparently the change in the number of partakers can't be used as a barometer to indicate anything, except for the number of partakers...

You were asking about partakers. My comment only was concerning the single statistic of 'partakers'. Our activity has nothing to do with the number of partakers. The other numbers are incredibly interesting.

It uses to be like that until last year.
Starting this year, we'll get it in October

Of course I would be very glad if we will get it in October, but I do not think that this will happen.

Off topic but by judging what tortuga said and looking at your post count, I'm assuming you were once a full access user and then had an inactive account. If your account becomes inactive and then you log back in, do you go back to being a limited access user?

Of all the publications to be released, even as a little girl, I love the yearbook the most. To hear how our brothers and sisters face their own challenges around the world gives me so much strength and encouragement. Hopefully soon the yearbooks released will be of the new work we'll all be doing following Armageddon!
