Oh my goodness, thank you! I have never seen this list; how awesome! Thank you so much for the share!  :D:) (my own baptism...1971)

Penny: Is it not a joy to see the growth in Jehovah's Organization and grow with it! I was born in the Truth, but got baptized at 13. I have a long heritage in the Truth! We value everything we have and more! Thank you Jehovah!

Agape,

Thank you so much for the list of year texts. We were baptised 31/12/83.  Jehovah is such a loving Father. I was a very vicious DNC till 2 little girls aged 12 and 10, with 3 scriptures answers my question I had asked the clergy for years. This shows how important it is to train our young ones to know their Bible.

Karlie: Jehovah gives us the strength and courage to do impossible, I had a man that did not teach the children, I taught by example not to disrespect his headship. Today I am blessed with four children who love Jehovah, one at Wallkill Bethel, one a Elder, one a MS Servant, my daughter a Pioneer and her husband an Elder. We can't make them choose Jehovah, just do what you can, plant that seed, and ask Jehovah to help its growth! May Jehovah Bless you, Bible Speaks ???

Gracias por esa relación. Me bautice en 1967, hace 50 años. Se dice fácil pero no lo es. Jehova siempre ha estado presente en mi vida. :)IMG_5431.JPG

¡Que Jehová bendiga a Gloria! Nosotros debemos estar cerca de él, los días son cortos y se enfrentará más ataques de Satanás. ¡Mantenga fuerte y en la fe! Biblia habla de ágape, Bible Speaks ???

Dear Bible Speaks, Thank you for this list. My hubby and I were baptized together at the same time in 1978. What a wondrous special journey it has been. Magazines were 15¢ back then. 2 color magazines became 4 color. No smartphones or tablets or home computers. No CDs or DVDs. So much has changed, and Jehovah's celestial chariot moves faster, ahead of all. Glorious!

That's not the yeartext for 1914.

Because of the calendars, mostly, I recall most of the ones since 1964 or so. I was baptized in 1967, too, @Gloria Medina Our yeartext banner at the front of the Hall that year was beige-on-beige silk. (Here I am, send me.) Very hard to read except in a certain light.

I think someone changed the 1914 one so they could claim it matched the 2014 one, which wasn't true, of course. Probably part of an "innocent" attempt to drum up more speculation for 2014 as the 100th anniversary of 1914, and the year when our "last memorial?" was on Nisan 14 on 04/14/14, etc.

1961 “In unity I shall set them, like a flock in the pen.”—Mic. 2:12.

 

I always remember this one for some reason.  So I looked for it and indeed found it on your list.

Thanks.  I am keeping this list.
