  1. The high prices for subscriptions to the magazines almost led to a standstill of their distribution. In 1922 the price for a yearly subscription to The Watchtower rose from 16 to 30 Mark. By mid-1923 the price had reached 40,000 Mark. Question: How much do you think ONE issue of The Watchtower cost on 25 October 1923?
  2. Before deciding to date it is important you pay close attention to the person you are interested in. How do they treat others? Are they spiritually mature? How do they handle money matters? How do they handle responsibility? What are their strengths? What are their weaknesses? There is never a reason to settle for less. We don’t need to look for perfection, but when it is clear that they require a ton of assembly or when they don’t have very important qualities or skills needed to make a marriage a success, we would be wise to hold off from pursing a courtship. Normally, when purchasing an item we do research to make sure we are getting the best quality. Why would we do any less when it comes to something as life changing and important as choosing a marriage mate. Also, if I am aware that I have a ton of assembly required and lack in many areas of life, why not work on those things first before trying to date. If we really like someone we should want them to have the best, right? “Patience is the key”. (See YPA Vol 2 Chapter 1)
  3. On the left is Mike Clarke who was in Pheasey Congregation Birmingham UK at the time. On the right is Gary Tomes my pioneer partner and we were in the next congregation to Mike at Kingstanding. Us three pioneers booked a mini-caravan on a campsite in some woods for the convention which is the one we are standing by. Trouble was it was a lot mini-er than we were led to believe. We got done over because in the brochure picture (a drawing) there was a double bed and a single bed and room in the caravan to walk around. Wrong! It was basically just a double bed on wheels. You had to stand outside to change your clothes. The only thing that saved us was the canopy. Mike elected to sleep in the canopy but the roof leaked so he had to tie an open umbrella to the bed! We also found out the hard way that the site was 3 hrs away from the convention ground by public transport. The convention sessions finished ap. 9 p.m. and with 3 hrs travel each way we didn't sleep much! Mike met a pioneer sister while in London in1973 and moved there and married her. You can't tell but they're looking at one of the publications released there 'Then is Finished the Mystery of God' By Dave G.
