You see Jay - the focus is all skewed. here you are obsessing about the TIME and you have not told us about the VISIT itself. Who did you visit? How are they? What Experiences did they have to share with you ? What Gift did you impart to them by way of the interchange? What needs do they have? etc etc etc

Instead the man-made Pharasaical style rules cloud the whole matter for you - its the TIME the TIME all about the TIME

I do volunteer work in poverty-stricken communities in my city - the last thing on my mind is the TIME I spend there -

And btw NO ! According to the man-made Pharasaical Style Rulz you cant count the TIME - it should be part of your Sacred Service - If they are baptised you cant count the TIME -

So dump the visits to the faithful oldies if you are concerned about getting your TIME in !

I cannot agree more with Joe Smith.
When The Almighty spoke through Jeremiah about the future covenant, He said: "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts". If you want to keep a record of whom you visit and for how many hours is up to you. Now if you want to share this record with some earthly organization this is up to you too. But one thing is clear: Do not be good to others just because someone told you you must fill up some hours of visits. You must do it because the Law of the Almighty is in your heart not written in some paper.
If you ask my personal opinion ...  that is you can write this hours and every hour that glorifies JAH and His king our Lord Jesus.

Continue to do good and be blessed !

You may have missed where Jay Witness said he didn't agree with his friends counting time for this. So it's an open question he's asking rather than an 'obsession.'

Ann O'Maly Thanks for the rap on the knuckles - I should have used the 3rd person as my post was a bit of a rant - And it pays not to type any responses when you are ticked off or angry - Point taken - My reference to time-counting being an obsession within the JW ORG still stands though -

Stay well !

Oh....good morning from my world [at time of posting] It should reach 30 deg C today -

Lol. Absolutely! And the beans JWs have to count are getting smaller and smaller - every tract, every JW video shown, every pdf sent. I think of Matt. 23:23, 24.

Enjoy your hot, sunny, late summer afternoon. Hmpf. I'm not jealous. Honest.

To me it's not about counting the time but encouraging our brothers and sisters. If all you are concerned about is counting time...do it elsewhere. If they are baptized I would think it would not be appropriate. Should be putting our hearts into that visit and be genuinely concerned about their spiritual health.
