How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I was in my third year of college when an accident took the life of my best friend since high school. This is the time I started to ask questions about the meaning of life and why things happen? First , let me give you a little background info. I left home at 16 years old and lived on my own. While in hight school I became best friends with a guy and later he and his family asked if I would like to move in with them which i did. They had a bowling alley in which I helped out since I felt it the only RIGHT thing to do since they took me in. My friend and I went on to college, joined a fraternity and in our Junior year of college he had a head on accident in his vehicle. An older man with two young boys had pulled out in his lane in front of him. Well, I needed to get some Answers since he was like my brother. I didn't feel he was good enough to go to heaven but he was not also bad enough to burn forever. So now my search! My sister in a different town had been studying with Jehovah's Witnesses and she began showing me scriptures, etc. (She was not baptized nor going to meetings regularly as of yet) I remember praying, "Jehovah, God or whoever you are , if it means wearing a beany cap, I will wear one" I just wanted to KNOW for a certainty that I would see my best friend again. Well, to make a long story short, I found the answers to my questions and MUCH MORE. I came to know the TRUE GOD, Jehovah. WHAT A PRIVILEGE. When I researched and checked on my own for several months before knowing what a Bible study was or even going to the Kingdom Hall for the first time. I tried to prove it wrong but at the same time it was all there in front of me in black and white in the scriptures. To logical to just pass off as another religion. I have been privilgeged to be used by Jehovah to help several families into the truth and a couple of special ones in my life as well. If you would like. I could share these experiences. Jeho

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I am a simple person who loves to study the Bible with others. My wife and I spend time together since our two boys are grown and gone. I have one son who he and his wife are doing quite well in the TRUTH. He is the Theocratic Ministry School Overseer in his congregation and my oldest son was a servant but a couple of years ago he chose a different course and disassociated himself. Haven't seen or talked to him in years. My heart aches but Jehovah knows and gives my wife and I strength.

      I have NO idea what it's about and it's none of my business, but skipdaflip - you are in my prayers too. Love our brothers and sisters very much on this forum - don't like to hear one is hurting. Much love Mandi x

  2. It will be so interesting in the new system to see a vast amount of different varieties of flowers and animal life. What is even more spectacular is the universe will all be at perfect harmony peace and beauty. If we know that these variety of flowers and animal life are beautiful now....can't wait to see it ALL with Jehovah's complete blessings on all living things.
  3. Greg, Is that the name of this flower? The passion flower? It is so different that anything we have around our area.
  4. I don't remember if I posted my DNA but this is the results: England, Wales, and Northwestern Europe 83% Ireland and Scotland 13% Norway 2% Benin/Togo 1% Sweden 1% I
  5. Welcome Dave ....thanks so much for sharing. Look forward to other posts! Your Oklahoma brother Dave
  6. Your right Mandi....No one wants to be made to feel like they are someone's protege. Genuine love can be shown in caring and just taking an interest in someone who wonders , 'does anyone care?' Everyone of us has the need to be loved. And even though we KNOW without a doubt Jehovah loves us, to have brothers and sisters who actively show that love is priceless. Jesus actively showed that kind of love by making people feel loved and appreciated.
  7. Great point Richard! And that is what has always been encouraged ever since I learned the Truth and long before that. LOVE THE FRIENDS! Thanks for bringing that out!
  8. This is bizarre. I don't know all the ends and outs of it but it shows the demons are active. They had extraordinary strength. Interesting . People are always ready to think we are odd anyways. https://www.yahoo.com/news/naked-jehovah-witnesses-apos-kidnapped-142444718.html?soc_src=newsroom&soc_trk=com.apple.UIKit.activity.Message&.tsrc=newsroom
  9. Greg, I live 6 miles from Wynnewood where this tornado hit. Too close for comfort.
  10. Tight places where I feel hemmed in. I Like freedom of movement.
  11. NY Health Officials Warn of Jehovah's Witness Measles Exposure ... They sure picked up on this quickly. Even though it is good to make others aware.
