Horrible. Just horrible. Two terrorists attacks in as many days. This world is getting worse and worse every day and it'll continue to get that way until the Kingdom finally comes. Let's keep this sister and her family in our prayers and may Jehovah help them cope with this horrific loss.

So very sad.  No wonder out spiritual food is so urgent.  Just hang in there!  Look at the big picture! Stay close to Jehovah.  Many prayers will be said for out sister's family and congregation to not be overwrought with sadness, and keep our hope alive.

One of the two victims was a Jehovah's Witness passing out leaflets, the newspaper Ila-Sanomat reported.

That newspaper is in Finnish. A rough Google translation says:

Quote

There are two people dead at the Turku Market Square stapling.
The police have reported that two people died in Turku's Friday stabbing. According to IS's data, one of the victims was Jehovah's Witness Woman, who was in the market sharing brochures.

 

- It is true, confirms the information of IS Veikko Leinonen, a spokeswoman for Jehovah's Witnesses.

 

Police have not formally commented on fatalities or injured genders. The suspect was caught in the police by police shot at her feet. The police have told the suspect that he is a foreign-born, young man who is in hospital.

 

According to Jehovah's Witness Leinonen, the community has already offered crisis support for the deceased woman's family. According to Leinonen, the deceased woman was a well-respected and valued person among the witnesses. He had no children.

 

According to Leinonen, a deceased woman lived in Turku but was not Turks native.

 

- In our view, it was not a blow to our religion, but his involvement in the victim was purely random.

 

Leinonen reminds us that Jehovah's Witnesses are in so-called gospel work around the world in abundance of people gathering places, such as squares and squares.

 

- We are there to smile and offer biblical literature to people and nothing has happened in the past. This seems to be quite a sad random event.

 

According to Leinonen, Jehovah's Witnesses throughout Finland and the world have shown their condolences to the deceased and close friends of the woman.

 

- Our community is very close.

Some youngsters of my congregation decided to make a collage with pictures of the resurrection and comforting bible-scriptures. They  want to send it to the Finnish Branch to forward it to family or the congregation where the sister was from . Once the Collage is  finished I will post a picture.

"...police received a tip about the suspect in early 2017, saying that he "appeared to be radicalized and was interested in extreme ideology."

 

So, according to Russia's determination of Jehovah's Witnesses, an extremist attacked another "extremist."

I received the Information that officials of Turku granted our Brothers to set up a little hut right in the area where our dear sister was stabbed to death since they want our Brothers to continue their precious service there. Now they have a shelter from sun and rain.

Interesting hut, it looks like a prefab for construction site. It's built to be set by a crane and it looks like it has an electrical junction box, which isn't being used. That's a nice temporary shelter. I assume there is a locking door on the side.
