Jehovah’s Witnesses distributing literature in Costa Rica, Facebook.

This weekend’s 3-day gathering of over 7,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses from the San José metropolitan area was held in La Guácima, Alajuela.

According to Wikipedia:

“Jehovah’s Witnesses is a millenarian restorationist Christian denomination with nontrinitarian beliefs distinct from mainstream Christianity. The group claims a worldwide membership of more than 8.2 million adherents involved in evangelism, convention attendance figures of more than 15 million, and an annual Memorial attendance of more than 19.9 million. Jehovah’s Witnesses are directed by the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses, a group of elders in Brooklyn, New York, which establishes all doctrines based on its interpretations of the Bible.”

In a 2010 academic paper published by Antonio Higuera Bonfil at the Quintana Roo University in southern Mexico, he notes the recent explosive growth of the religion in Central America. Over the past twenty five years, aggressive proselytism has led to a doubling of Jehovah Witnesses followers in Costa Rica, said Bonfil. Today over 22,000 practice the faith in Costa Rica.

Arnold Hilton, the church’s Costa Rica spokesman said that other gatherings are planned for followers living in Alajuela, Guanacaste, Limón, San Carlos, Puntarenas, and other areas of country.

From December 30 until January 1 another mass Jehovah’s Witness gathering will be held in Alajuela. And a special JW convention for Costa Rican sign language users (Lesco) will be held from January 6 to 8 at the religious group’s main assembly hall in Asunción de Belén, Heredia.

      Costa Rica is not the place for bargain-basement living. It is the most expensive country in Central America. In many ways, it’s a victim of its own success, so to speak. It’s safe, stable, with a growing economy. But in Costa Rica, you will find a high standard of living that is still far below the cost of living in the U.S., Canada, or Europe.
      How much it will cost you, of course, depends on your lifestyle. But many expats report living comfortably on budgets of between $2,000 and $3,000 per month. Spend more, and you will have a lifestyle that would never be possible back in the United States. Rents range from $300 to $600 per month for a small home or condo to $1,200 to $2,000 per month for a large house with a large yard, depending on location. Rural areas are cheaper, and ocean and urban properties are more.
      You won’t need to give up anything if you retire to Costa Rica…except cold winters. Need modern appliances? A high-speed Internet connection? Cable and satellite TV? Costa Rica has all the services and infrastructure in place to meet all your needs. And because the cost of labor is low, you may be able to employ household help that will enable you to vastly improve your quality of life.
      It’s not surprising that expats, especially Americans and Canadians, are attracted to Costa Rica. With one of the highest standards of living in Latin America and a variety of different climates to suit all tastes, Costa Rica is the perfect retirement destination.

      I realize there are many reasons to go to an Assembly, or Convention, and when my children were living at home they would go to others' conventions  for a variety of reasons, as well as their own.
      I would always ask them when they returned home "What did you learn that was new?" .  This was important to me as I had to work long hours to afford to finance their explorations and socialization, which I thought was important ... but I still expected them to learn something new ... and since I was paying for their travels, to tell me what was going on.
      Generally, attendance to an out of town Convention nearby would cost about $200 a day, times three days, so that would be $600.
      Now that I am retired, and my income has been cut by about 80%, it's even MORE important to me to want to get good value for the time and money I would be spending for my wife and I to spend three days, traveling out of town, to learn something of lasting value .... something worth at least three days of our time, which is painfully obviously shorter, and the what is now considerable effort and considerable expense.
      In Engineering it's important that the "Law of diminishing returns" be observed so that you do not go physically, mentally or emotionally bankrupt.
      Perhaps I am just asking for some encouragement that the effort is worth the cost and effort, and that the benefit is worth it, so if I may ask ......
      WHAT DID YOU LEARN THAT WAS NEW AT THE 2019 "LOVE NEVER FAILS" REGIONAL CONVENTION ?
      ......

      El segundo accidente se produjo en horas de la noche frente a la iglesia de los Testigos de Jehová, en Santa Rosa de Pocosol.

      Una pareja que iba saliendo en motocicleta de la iglesia tras participar del acto religioso fue embestida por un vehículo.

      Los ocupantes de la motocicleta resultaron heridos y fueron trasladados a la clínica local.

      Ambos accidentes los investiga la Policía de Tránsito.

      Con el objetivo de transmitir un mensaje positivo a aquellas personas que por alguna razón se sienten tristes o decepcionadas, los Testigos de Jehová efectuarán su Asamblea, pero de una manera distinta. En esta ocasión, será completamente en Lesco.

      La actividad se efectuará durante tres días, iniciando este viernes 15 de setiembre y se extenderá hasta el domingo 17.

      Según indicaron los Testigos, dicha actividad va dirigida específicamente a la comunidad no oyente del país, bajo el lema “No se rinda”.
      “Cada tarde se podrá seguir por medio de una película una historia de una familia que llega a entender por qué Jesús dijo: ‘Acuérdense de la esposa de Lot’”, señalaron.

      “Estabilidad en el matrimonio, valores morales, educación de los hijos, la situación económica y las enfermedades, serán entre otros, los temas que se analizarán para que las personas en un mundo convulso no se rindan”, continuaron los Testigos de Jehová.

      Otra actividad que se podrá presenciar consiste en la ordenación de nuevos ministros, a partir de las 11:45 a.m. del sábado. Pero, además, se divulgará el discurso “No se rinda ante el temor”.

      La Convención tendrá como sede el salón de asambleas de los Testigos de Jehová, en La Asunción de Belén, Heredia. Específicamente, frente a las instalaciones de Unilever.

      Las actividades del viernes y sábado darán inicio a las 9:20 a.m. y se extenderán hasta las 4:45 p.m., mientras que el domingo, se hará el encuentro desde las 9:20 a.m. y hasta las 3:30 p.m. y se brindará otro discurso: “Nunca pierda la esperanza”.

      Toda aquella persona que desee participar podrá hacerlo y la entrada es totalmente gratis.

      30.600 personas en Costa Rica forman parte de esta religión de la que, sin embargo, poco se sabe fuera de su organización. ¿En qué creen y por qué lo creen?

      Desde el desconocimiento, podría pensarse que el hombre que está dentro de la piscina junto a Cristian Moya está recitando un Salmo o llevando a cabo una oración que bendecirá las aguas en las que Moya, de 33 años, está a punto de hundirse.
      No es así. Todas las oraciones fueron dichas mucho antes. Ahora, en el agua, el Anciano de congregación que está junto a Moya solo le da instrucciones para que el agua no le suba por la nariz o le inunde los oídos; la intención es evitar que este momento, tan esperado por Moya y su familia, se convierta en una experiencia desagradable.
      El bautismo en la fe de los Testigos de Jehová no se limita a un breve contacto con el agua, mientras se proclaman oraciones. Sumergirse bajo el agua es el puntillazo final de un proceso de estudio prolongado de la Biblia.
      Durante tres fines de semana –comenzando el viernes 16 de junio y hasta este domingo 2 de julio–, los Testigos de Jehová de Costa Rica se reunieron en el Centro Kölbi, de Parque Viva, en su Asamblea anual, que congrega a los practicantes de esta religión de todo el país –la asistencia es gratuita, pero se divide por regiones: de allí que haya tres fechas distintas–. La convocatoria es masiva: sumando la asistencia de los tres fines de semana, se esperan unos 80.000 seguidores de esta religión.
      Cada sábado de esos fines de semana se llevaron a cabo bautismos para un número considerable de devotos –el sábado 24 de junio, cuando un equipo de la Revista Dominical asistió a la Asamblea, fueron bautizadas unas 35 personas, hombres y mujeres, desde adolescentes hasta un anciano de 102 años – quienes, como Cristian Moya– dedicaron muchas horas de estudio bíblico para llegar a este momento.
      Para la mayoría de ellos, el hundimiento en el agua será sencillo y satisfactorio. Después recibirán el abrazo de sus familias y disfrutarán de un momento emotivo y con una carga espiritual fuerte: en el marco de su fe, “el bautismo demuestra que una persona quiere ser amiga de Dios y servirle. Es un compromiso ante Jehová y ante la comunidad”, según reza el sitio web de la organización mundial de los Testigos de Jehová.

      Desde este viernes 16 de junio y hasta el próximo domingo 18, los Testigos de Jehová celebrarán su convención anual, esto en el Centro Kölbi en la Guácima de Alajuela e invitan a todas las personas a asistir.Según dijeron, el título de la serie de asambleas de este año es “¡No se rinda!”. Con este, aseguran que buscan motivar a los asistentes a no rendirse y seguir el camino correcto confiando en Dios.Además, del 23 al 25 de junio y del 30 de junio al 2 de julio realizarán otras dos jornadas, todas las fechas son complementarias en su mensaje. Estos dos eventos se realizarán en el mismo lugar.Del 15 al17 de setiembre será en Lesco (Lenguaje de Señas Costarricense), en el Salón de Asambleas de Los Testigos de Jehová, ubicado frente a las instalaciones de Unilever en la Asunción de Belén.
      De acuerdo con el organizador Minor Marín, la Asamblea Regional de los Testigos de Jehová se orienta a niños, jóvenes, adultos, parejas y matrimonios, con información de la Biblia que ayuda a enfrentarse a situaciones actuales.“Por ejemplo, cosas que nos afectan la vida, y cómo enfrentarlas, lo interesante es que hay novedades, hay una película que se compone en tres partes, para que podamos disfrutarla”, dijo.Marín indicó que a la asamblea asisten miles de personas, pues es gratuita y no se realizan colectas en ella.La jornada de este fin de semana inició este viernes, con una serie de discursos, videos y análisis de la Biblia, enfocados en el mensaje “No desistamos de hacer lo que es excelente”, que se encuentra en Gálatas 6:9.Este sábado se enfocarán en el mensaje “Regocíjense en la esperanza. Aguanten bajo tribulación”, mensaje bíblico de Romanos 12:12.Finalmente, para el domingo, la jornada continuará con Mateo 24:13: “El que haya aguantado hasta el fin es el que será salvo”.De acuerdo con los organizadores, la entrada es gratuita, únicamente se debe cancelar el costo del parqueo, el cual es un cobro que realiza la administración del lugar y no ellos.El programa de actividades se puede descargar en www.jw.org/sobrenosotros/asambleasanuales.

      The public also is invited to the event, which will feature a series of talks, interviews and re-enactments to emphasize the importance of building people's faith and strengthening their confidence in Jehovah God.
      PANAMA CITY - You might know Jehovah's Witnesses mostly by their outdoors work, knocking on doors to spread their message. But this weekend they will be indoors when they gather for an assembly at the Marina Civic Center.
      Witnesses from Bay, Gulf, Jackson and Calhoun Counties will meet at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday in Panama City for an assembly themed "Increase Your Faith in Jehovah!" based on Hebrews 11:6. However, you need not be a Witness to attend.
      "It's open to the public," said circuit assembly media services representative Don Clark. "It's a free event."
      The assembly will span two days to accommodate the more than 2,000 Witnesses in the four-county area, according to circuit overseer Robert Russo. Some Witnesses likely will bring in additional family members or others from outside the area, Clark said.
      The event will feature a series of talks, interviews and re-enactments to emphasize the importance of building people's faith and strengthening their confidence in Jehovah God. A highlight will be a Bible lecture at 1:30 p.m. titled "True Faith - What Is It and How Is It Shown?"
      Assemblies are held every six months and have a new theme each time, Clark said, adding they also hold bigger regional conventions once a year that draw crowds of 8,000 to 14,000 people. This weekend's assembly especially will benefit families because it will focus on keeping them together and the importance of families having a relationship with Jehovah God, he said.
      Also working with Jehovah's Witnesses is The Watchtower Bible & Tract Society, an international religious organization that focuses on promoting good news about God's Kingdom.
      "We all need some good news," Clark said.

      A three-day Regional Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Igbo Language has been concluded at Daluwon, near Lagos. The convention, which has as theme, “Guzosie Ike N’ebe Jehova No” (Remain Loyal To Jehovah”), attracted a total of 1,316 delegates to the Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Daluwon is located between Redemption Camp and Ofada town.
      The attendance is considered significant because Igbo is neither the lingua franca nor the language spoken by the natives.
      The three-day convention lasted from November 25 to 27. The programme on Friday focused on how Jesus Christ set a perfect example as God’s loyal one. Saturday was devoted to analysing what the Bible book of Job teaches Christians about remaining loyal despite intense suffering.
      The star attraction on Sunday was a gripping feature-length film on how the Biblical King Hezekiah “held fast to Jehovah” while being besieged by his enemies. (2 Kings 18:6).
      The convention featured talks, interviews and short videos. A total of 13 newly dedicated persons comprising seven males and six females dedicated themselves to Jehovah and were baptised during what several delegates described as a spiritual banquet.
      Brother Noah C J Ubani, Overseer of the News Media Department of the convention, told News Express that the convention was for Jehovah’s Witnesses and interested members of the public in Lagos and Ogun states who speak or understand Igbo Language. “There are 14 conventions holding on this ground this year, majority of them being in English and Yoruba languages,” he said.
      Ubani disclosed that the Igbo Language Convention was first held in 2015. “This is the second in two years. The ‘Imitate Jesus!’ Regional Convention held in December last year attracted only 11 congregations with a peak attendance of 1,004 delegates. But this year is a bumper, attracting 18 congregations,” he said.
      On why an Igbo Language Convention is being held far away from Igboland, Ubani explained that Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that “it is important for people to hear the good news of God’s Kingdom if possible in their mother tongue because they understand it better.” He backed up the belief by quoting what happened on Pentecost Day in 33 CE when people who gathered in Jerusalem to listen to Jesus’ apostles heard the good news in 14 different languages.
      Ubani disclosed that Jehovah’s Witnesses started forming Igbo Language congregations in the Lagos and Ogun area in 2014, adding that so far 17 have been formed, with others on the way. “Jehovah’s Witnesses,” he said, “are preaching in 18 languages in Nigeria. This is in fulfillment of Revelation 14:6, which speaks of an “angel flying in midheaven, and he had everlasting good news to declare to those who dwell on the earth, to every nation and tribe and tongue and people.”

      Tropical Storm Otto is nearing hurricane strength in the southwest Caribbean Sea, and is forecast to be an extremely rare late November hurricane landfall, posing a danger of flooding and mudslides in parts of Central America.
      A hurricane watch was issued Tuesday morning for Costa Rica and southern Nicaragua. This means that hurricnae conditions are possible here within 48 hours.
      In addition, a tropical storm warning was issued in Panama from Nargana to Colon, where tropical storm conditions are expected beginning Tuesday. A tropical storm watch is also in effect from west of Colon, Panama to Costa Rica. 
      A tropical storm watch was issued Monday night for San Andres Island, a Colombian island in the Caribbean Sea located about 125 miles east of the Nicaragua coast. This means tropical storm conditions are possible there within 48 hours.

      Tropical Storm Otto continues to march in place, located just over 200 miles southeast of San Andres Island, or about 330 miles east-southeast of Bluefields, Nicaragua, as of Tuesday morning.

      Otto is finally expected to begin to drift westward later Tuesday followed by a faster motion toward the west-northwest or west by Wednesday, as clockwise steering flow around high pressure building to its north will send this system westward toward the coast of Nicaragua or Costa Rica.

      Projected Path
      The red-shaded area denotes the potential path of the center of the tropical cyclone. Note that impacts (particularly heavy rain, high surf, coastal flooding) with any tropical cyclone may spread beyond its forecast path.
      Tropical storm force winds currently extend out to about 70 miles from the center of circulation, making Otto a relatively small tropical cyclone.
      Wind shear is expected to be weak to moderate over the next few days, and small tropical cyclones can also intensify quickly, particularly given heat content in the southwest Caribbean Sea is well above average for this time of year.
      Given all this, Otto will intensify, becoming a rare, late-season hurricane before making landfall in Nicaragua or Costa Rica on Thanksgiving Day.
      Heavy rain, flash flooding and mudslides will be major concerns for Central America, including Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Some locations may pick up over 10 inches of rain from Otto.
      In addition, areas of heavy rain well to the north of the circulation may trigger flooding in parts of Honduras and Belize. 

      Any wind and storm surge impact will depend on the strength of the system as it moves inland, which remains somewhat uncertain at this time.
      Otto is expected to weaken soon after making landfall, as the circulation is hampered by the higher terrain of Nicaragua and Costa Rica. However, there is some potential for the circulation to survive in some form once it emerges into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Atlantic tropical cyclones crossing into the eastern Pacific Basin have happened numerous times in the past. 
      How Unusual is a Named Storm This Late in the Hurricane Season?
      November Atlantic Basin tropical cyclones aren't all that unusual.
      In November, tropical cyclones typically form where the waters are warmest. Thus, one cluster of storms forming in November is in the western Caribbean Sea.
      A second broad area of formation is in a broad swath of the western and central Atlantic Ocean, sometimes spinning off from an old frontal boundary, sometimes transitioning from a cold-core low to a subtropical or tropical cyclone.

      JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. — Circuit Assembly of Jehovah’s Witnesses are holding a conference, “Increase Your Faith in Jehovah,” is the Biblical theme of the semi-annual event.
      Sponsored by the Circuit Assembly of Jehovah’s Witnesses from the greater Tri-Cities area and from areas nearby in Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia, the assembly will be held at Freedom Hall Civic Center, 1320 Pactolas Road, on Saturday, Nov. 19. It will begin at 9:40 a.m. and end at 4:15 p.m. with a break for lunch.
      “Someone might wonder who is referred to in our assembly theme, ‘Increase Your Faith in Jehovah!’.” said assembly representative Raymond Schneider. “The King James version of the Bible in Psalms 88:18 says, ‘JEHOVAH art is the most high over all the earth.’ The goal then is to ‘increase’ our faith in the God, of the Bible and Jehovah,” he said.
      “Our scripture, Hebrew 11:6, tells us we first must believe God exists or is real. Then it tells us to be fully convinced he will generously care for us and eventually reward us,” said Schneider. “That takes true faith. Those coming to the assembly will learn about that kind of faith and the rewards that will assuredly come to all of us.”
      The speakers will answer the following questions: Why is it necessary in all circumstances to have faith? How can we increase our faith? What gives us confidence that those with genuine faith will be rewarded? The main talk will be the public Bible discourse: “True Faith — What Is It, and How Is It Shown?”
      Attendance and parking is free and no offerings are taken. For more contact Schneider at 423-202-5398 or email rjssas@gmail.com.

      Más de 6 mil testigos de Jehová del Valle Central se dieron cita desde el viernes 28 hasta el domingo 30 de octubre para participar en la asamblea anual de esta agrupación religiosa.
      La congregación tuvo lugar en La Guácima de Alajuela y su lema fue “Seamos leales a Jehová”. Como parte de la actividad se realizaron meditaciones y cineforos que tocaban la temática antes mencionada.
      “Hemos tenido una convocatoria muy buena. También hemos invitado a personas de nuestros barrios que no son testigos para que se beneficien con la instrucción bíblica”, explicó Arnold Hilton, vocero de la asamblea.
      Esta reunión es la segunda que organizan en el año y reunió a fieles de Heredia, Alajuela y San José.
      En setiembre otro grupo de feligreses tuvo su convención y a finales de este año (30 y 31 de diciembre y 1 de enero) se realizará otra, a la que acudirá un nuevo grupo de congregaciones.
      Adicionalmente, en enero de 2017 los testigos de Jehová que se comunican a través del lenguaje de señas costarricense (Lesco) tendrán un encuentro especial en el salón de asambleas de este grupo, en Belén.
      Los participantes se mostraron satisfechos y animados con el contenido que se les ofreció durante los tres días que duró el encuentro.
      “Me siento muy contenta, el programa está muy bonito y muy completo. Hemos aprendido mucho”, expresó Noilyn Zúñiga, vecina de San Rafael de Heredia.
      Hilton explicó que en zonas alejadas de la capital, donde también se reúnen miembros de esta fe, han organizado asambleas, de modo que todos reciban el mensaje planeado para este año.
      Los testigos de Jehová son una comunidad que tiene alrededor de 8 millones de fieles en todo el mundo. Los caracterizan sus programas de repartición de mensajes sobre su fe casa por casa y los estudios de materiales con contenido bíblico.

      Esta se lleva a cabo en La Guácima de Alajuela e invitan a todas las personas a asistir.

      Según dijeron, el título de la serie mundial de asambleas de este año es “Seamos leales a Jehová”.

      La organización indicó además que habrá una tercera fecha, la cual será el 30 y 31 de diciembre de 2016, y el 1 de enero de 2017, en el mismo lugar.
      Del 6 al 8 de enero será en Lesco (Lenguaje de Señas Costarricense), en el Salón de Asambleas de Los Testigos de Jehová, ubicado frente a la Fábrica Unilever en la Asunción de Belén.

      La jornada de este fin de semana inició este viernes, con una serie de discursos y videos donde destacaron el ejemplo perfecto de la lealtad de Jesús.

      Este sábado explicarán lo que se enseña en el libro de Job sobre ser leales cuando se sufre.

      Para el domingo, la jornada continuará con la proyección de una película sobre el rey Ezequías y cómo siguió adhiriéndose a Jehová cuando sus amigos lo amenazaron.

      De acuerdo con los organizadores, unas nueve mil personas acudirían a la Asamblea, porque la entrada es gratuita. Según indican, todas sus actividades se sufragan con donaciones voluntarias.

      Cerca de 6.000 Testigos de Jehová se encuentran reunidos en el antiguo Autódromo La Guácima, con el único objetivo de hacer crecer y mantener la fe en Dios, además de ser instruidos en programas de lealtad y amor.

      De acuerdo con Arnold Hilton, vocero de esta enorme congregación, la actividad que lleva como nombre “Asamblea Anual de los Testigos de Jehová” inició el viernes y finalizará mañana a las 3 de la tarde.
      Hilton afirmó que el evento es completamente gratis y es abierto a todo tipo de público. 
       
      “La asamblea inició ayer y terminará mañana, la idea es disfrutar todos los programas que se realizan. Ayer lo que se vio fue el modelo de lealtad con Dios y así iremos reseñando otras actividades”, dijo.

      “Por dicha se ha contado con la participación de más de 6.000 mil personas y esperamos que mañana se sobrepase el número de participantes”, agregó.
      Uno de los que se mostró muy complacido por el desarrollo de la Asamblea, fue don Rodolfo Sáenz, quien resaltó que el objetivo principal de la actividad es ser leal a Dios en todo momento.

      “Es muy interesante, porque la actividad tiene como objetivo ser leales con Dios, entonces, mediante la palabra de Dios, se nos han dado concejos muy oportunos que nos ha beneficiado mucho y más en estos tiempos donde muchos debilitan su fe”, dijo.

      Esta es la segunda actividad de este tipo que desarrollan los Testigos de Jehová, ya que la primera fue en setiembre de este año, donde participaron aproximadamente 4.000 fieles.
