The US Census Bureau left a letter in my door indicating they want me to answer numerous questions. Their "American Housing Survey Worksheet" questions include how much do I pay for:


- utliities

- fuel oil

- trash collection

- water & sewer

- what major purchases I've recently made and prices

- how much is my real estate tax

- how much did I put down to buy my house

- what my present loan payment is

- how much I borrowed to buy the house

- the current house payment and interest rate.


I know were supposed to cooperate with governmental authorities as Jehovah has placed them in their positions.  However I don't feel the above information is really any of there business and would rather not call them for an appointment.


What are your thoughts? Should I follow their instructions and call them to schedule an appt?


Or, on the other hand, how would you shift this around and give them a witness? Using what scriptures?

You could definitely use the appointment to give a witness. Do you have the current Theocratic calendar hanging in your front room? It has a picture of building homes in the New System (with scriptures included). The topic of economic security would be appropriate.
