Seems to be getting more exposure and coverage than going door to door physically with printed invitations, faster and broader area. And  highlighting the website  jw.org..

Many can tune in virtually after seeing these broadcasts without leaving their homes than might have otherwise done. Jehovah can always turn any situation into an advantage to do His will..it really seems like a speeding up of the work..

One small crack doesn't mean you are broken; it means that you were put to the test and didn't fall apart..

I made the video.  I worked in Video Services at the branch some years back.  The video was a little project designed to showcase some encouraging information from public sources that some of you may not have heard about.  Here are the links to the original sources:

I'm wondering the same. As I've seen some of those reports on youtube.

There was one thing I did not like in it ... The statement that Jehovah is in full control - (He certainly is with his people and will be worldwide very shortly) But it showed a picture of him holding the earth - which is almost a similar picture we have with Satan holding the world - and our pamphlet about who controls the world is very clear in saying it's Satan in control not Jehovah - at this time. This could be confusing to people.  If it's from jw.org though then it could be conveying that the New World is here and Jehovah is about to step in.

Excellent job. I noticed the same thing Mandi did but other than that I really appreciate the video.

Yeah, that does seem to be a problem with that image/footage. 

 

The brother has skills but this is something to be careful about producing this independently from WHQ.-My opinion

 

 

"there was Jehovah’s word for him, and it went on to say to him: “What is your business here, E·lijah?" To this (Elijah) he said: “I have been absolutely jealous for Jehovah the God of armies"- 1 Kings 19:9, 10 Reference Bible

Any of us at any time can compile news reports and share them. I don't see a problem with that.

That's a fair point, and something I will happily update.

If we listen to the words - the context remains that Jehovah is in control of his people - but that picture changes the context - if that could be removed awesome.

I've updated the earth clip at the end with an image of heaven, hopefully the new one is more appropriate 😉

Excellent job!

We are glad you are here and look forward to your other projects 👍🏼

It is quite likely that more households saw the invitation to the 2020 convention than would have if we had been able to participate in the regular invitation campaign. 

 I am not sying I am Superman, I am only saying that nobody has ever seen Superman  and me in a room together.

@thenewworld Brother Andrew, is that you doing the voice over? Sounds real good and professional.

Yes, that was my dulcet British tones, haha.  That's very kind of you to say 😉.   There's a lot better voices than me, I just wanted to create something quickly to share with you, to hopeully be encouraging!
