Altoona, Fl ??


Recommended Posts

Good Morning

We are traveling to FL this weekend. My mother in law has shown interest in attending a meeting so we are driving down to take her.

 

Here is my issue..for several months two sisters from there have been calling on her and studying. My mother in law is in her 80's and cannot remember their names. I thought this would be easy as I know they would come out of the Altoona congregation. Well that Congregation has grown and now has two meetings.

 

I have called the hall twice..first time a brother took my number and promised a call back. Didn't happen.

 

Today an elderly brother answered..I explained the situation..he said well huh...alot and finally said well I don't know what to tell you and told me to have a good day.

 

Anyone on here have contacts in that congregation or know someone who might. I'd like to take her to the meeting where the sisters she knows are at...

 

Thanks in advance if you can help.

Julie,

 

First, I will say, Altoona having two Congregations is really something. For those who have never been there - well, let's just say, if you are not going to Altoona, you most likely would never end up there. Altoona is located at the intersection of Fl-19 and County Rd 42 in Central Fl ... neither of these roads are major roads and are only two lanes. Where they cross is the only traffic light in Altonna. To say Altoona is a "small town" is an understatement!

Are you sure they are from one of the Altoona Congregations? Is it possible they are from Eustis or Mt. Dora?

 

The Eustis/Mt Dora KH and the Altoona KH are only about 13 miles apart.

 

BTW - I am not from that area ... I am closer to Gainesville. However, I am somewhat familiar with the area. Back in the 1960's that area was part of our Circuit - how things have grown. More recently I had work that took me to Altonna, Eustis and Mt. Dora once a month.

 

That said, Altoona and Eustis are still very rural and, depending on where your mother lives it is entirely possible the territory where she lives is assigned to any of those four Congregations.
