MADRID, 20 (EUROPA PRESS)

 

The Jehovah's Witnesses have begun their annual regional assemblies, to which all Spaniards are invited and that this time are centred around the theme 'Do not give up!'

 

Throughout Spain, a total of 43 assemblies will be held and next Friday, 23rd June the one for the Community of Madrid will begin, with a program that will continue until 20th August, during nine consecutive weekends.

 

One of the local spokesmen for Jehovah's Witnesses, Javier Otero, explained that these assemblies will convey a positive and optimistic message for "many people who feel sad and disappointed by what they see around them." "The Bible shows us how we can be happy now and guarantees us a much better future," he stated.

 

The assemblies will be held in the auditoriums of the Assembly Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses located in the town of Ajalvir. At this branch, the program will be presented in seven languages, including sign language, and a total attendance of 30,000 people is expected.

 

Moreover, as in previous years, Jehovah's Witnesses are participating in a worldwide campaign to personally invite the general public. The entrance is free and open to all, and according to the organisers, last year almost 13 million people attended these assemblies, whilst this year even more are expected to attend.

 

The program will be presented in various formats, including brief speeches, interviews and videos; Each afternoon a segment of a three-part film directed at families will be shown; and on Sunday morning the public conference, entitled ‘Never Lose Hope’ will be given.

 

Those interested in attending can consult the entire program and timetable on the official website of Jehovah's Witnesses 'www.jw.org'.

MADRID, 20 (EUROPA PRESS)


Los Testigos de Jehová han iniciado sus asambleas regionales anuales que en esta ocasión se celebran en torno al lema '¡No se rinda!' y a las que invitan a todos los españoles.


En toda España se celebrarán un total de 43 asambleas y el próximo viernes 23 de junio comenzará la de la Comunidad de Madrid, con un programa que se prolongará hasta el 20 de agosto, durante nueve fines de semana consecutivos.


Uno de los portavoces locales de los Testigos de Jehová, Javier Otero, ha explicado que en estas asambleas se transmitirá un mensaje positivo y optimista para "muchas personas que se sienten tristes y decepcionadas por lo que ven a su alrededor". "La Biblia nos muestra cómo podemos ser felices ahora y nos garantiza un futuro mucho mejor", ha afirmado.
Los congresos se celebrarán en los auditorios del Salón de Asambleas de los Testigos de Jehová situado en la localidad de Ajalvir. En esta sede, el programa se presentará en siete idiomas, incluyendo la lengua de signos, y se espera una asistencia total de 30.000 personas.


Además, como en años anteriores, los Testigos de Jehová están participando en una campaña mundial para invitar personalmente al público en general. La entrada es libre y gratuita y, según informan los organizadores, el año pasado asistieron a estas asambleas casi 13 millones de personas y este año esperan una asistencia mayor.


El programa se presentará en diversos formatos, incluyendo discursos breves, entrevistas y vídeos; cada tarde se proyectará un segmento de una película de tres partes dirigida a las familias; y el domingo por la mañana tendrá lugar la conferencia pública, titulada 'Nunca pierda la esperanza'.


Los interesados en asistir pueden consultar toda la programación y los horarios en el sitio web oficial de los Testigos de Jehová 'www.jw.org'.
