The team had quite an experience on Saturday. One of those experiences that makes you so glad you did get out there. We were working the Not At Homes that the team of Jane and Sue collected last week. We had walked past a couple of doors as they had "No Calling at this Door without an Appointment" notices, and had reached the next door.
Then we heard a voice - looked round - and a lady in a dressing gown was calling us from one of the Forbidden Houses. She knew we were Jehovah's Witnesses and wanted some literature from us. We gave her the current magazines, but what she really wanted was the book "What Does the Bible Really Teach?". And neither of us had a copy on us! Anyway, we promised to collect one, and put it through her letterbox,
Which I did after the meeting this morning. Along with a sympathy card from the two of us, one of Captain Butterfly's cards - as it is a family tragedy that prompted her request. And I also enclosed the little leaflet that gives details of our website: JW.Org.
She doesn't agree with us, she says, but...
She also decided that we could knock at her door again if we want, so Jean and I have agreed to go along next month, take the November magazines, which will really help to address her tragedy. And see if the family has found some comfort.
Jehovah is the God of all comfort, so, IF only they will listen and take it in...
The meeting was lovely. What can I say - except how do people manage without this perfect teaching?
It has been sunny today, though the wind is getting up again. Maybe this promised storm will arrive?
We are having supper at Jackie's tonight, so I am looking forward to that. We both are. I don't know if Tom is joining us or not, but they are both coming to us next weekend - hopefully along with Linda - for a curry night.
