  1. Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters!  My beloved niece, who was turning 57 in August, passed away one week ago! I'm really ok now, but as soon as I found out from her Caregiver who took care of her for three years, I started crying and praying to Jehovah to comfort me, and her family!  Her Memorial Arrangements are still pending! The week before, we had so many deaths in our Congregation! A sister and her husband, moved to Las Vegas to be close to her Mom, but when they moved from Irving to Las Vegas, driving a Uhaul truck, her Mother passed away! Then a week later her brother passed away! The following week, another young sister's Mother passed away! The other day they announced at our meeting, we could pick up our lapel cards for our 2021 "POWERFUL BY FAITH" Regional Convention!  I called my Congregation Overseer, crying and asked him if I could pick up mine and my niece's lapel cards! I explained to him, how special she was to me, and that I loved her, and miss her so much, as my niece, and my Spiritual Sister! He said he understood why I was asking him for her lapel card! I would always make sure she had all the latest issues and her lapel cards for each Convention!  I even helped her get on Zoom for all our meetings! I personally know that my beloved niece gave 100% of herself to Jehovah! She had so much pain everyday of her life, but she always talked about Jehovah!  At our 2019 "LOVE NEVER FAILS " Regional Convention, she borrowed my oldest sister's mobile powerchair, and went a few days at a time, but she went in person, when we met at The Convention Site, and was so happy to attend and meet different Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! I' ll always cherish and remember our last Memorial for 2021! She and I shared together, I had a beautiful table with our precious emblems on it, and I ordered some take- out from On The Border! Sometimes, we didn't get along, but with prayer to Jehovah, and us apologizing to each other, we always hugged and made up!  I can't wait to see her again, as we will all our loved ones in the Resurrection as Jehovah has promised us! I hope and pray that everyone enjoys and benefits Spiritually from our upcoming 2021 "POWERFUL BY FAITH"  Regional Convention! I know personally,  I will!!!! I'm so excited!!! On Sunday, July 1st, after our Abbreviated Watchtower study, we get to view Friday's Morning Session on JW Broadcasting! We will be able to enjoy all the beautiful videos. the symposiums, the drama, and of course, our new releases!  I'll talk to you soon, stay safe, and I forgot to mention on May 4, 2021, I received my first dose of Moderna, and on June 1, 2021, I received my second dose of Moderna!  Please!!!!  get vaccinated, we've lost over 17, 000 of our beloved Spiritual brothers and Sisters due to Covid19! I know this is your personal choice, but for myself, I feel safe now,  against this horrible disease taking many innocent lives!  I still wear my mask and stay 6 feet from people, wash my hands, and use hand sanitizer! May Jehovah bless everyone of you! Agape love, Shirley!!! 😄

      So sorry for your loss. She was definitely too young. 

  2. Hello all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here!  I hope everyone is staying safe, and doing well!  I became a great- Aunt in January!  My great- niece gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and named him Elias! My niece posted their photos on Facebook!  They already have a daughter, now their family is complete!  Yes, they are Jehovah's Witnesses too, and have been in several dramas at our former Conventions!  I had the most wonderful experience today!  My niece, has some medical issues,, and uses a wheelchair, and a powerchair! I'm staying with now, temporarily,until I  can afford to rent my own place, placed a Bible Teach book, with Sam,  last year, who installed some ramps for her to use to go to her doctor's appointments!  We've haven't seen him for several months! Sam, came today, to replace one of the ramps that was too high for her powerchair, so, he was telling me how he appreciates Jehovah's Witnesses, because, we give hope to people! I invited him and his family to our special talk , Sunday, the week before our Memorial, and The Memorial, and  I  also placed a Memorial Invitation with him!  I said yes, we try to preach to everyone we can, but since the Pandemic, we've been instructed by the governing body, to stop attending our kingdomhalls, and going door- to door, cart witnessing! So now we either do telephone witnessing, which I do, or letter writing! He was telling me, his brother had a stroke, and that someone had sent him a letter, his brother asked him, did you give out my phone number to anyone, or my address, he replied to him, no! He said, well somehow, somebody, wrote him a letter, but he didn't know how they knew his contact information! I explained to Sam, that we are using telephone lists  with their contact information, to call people in our territories, and also people's addresses to those who are doing the letter writing!  So, far, I usually talk to a very few people that aren't interested, or it's a wrong number, or their phone number has been disconnected!  My niece, has received two letters herself, and even my son received one!  So, I exchanged emails, and phone numbers with Sam, and I told him, that we have a Hospital Liasion Committe, that is made up of Elders, and when one of the Witnesses, or his family, go to the hospital, they are contacted, and they go visit the person, trying to spiritually upbuild them, read them scriptures, my niece had  been hospitalized several times, and the Hospital Liasion Committee, came to visit her during her hospital stay!  Sam, gave me, his sister- in- law's phone number, and  as soon as I have time, I'm going to call my Field Service Overseer and let him know that Sam, told me that his brother and sister- in- law would appreciate a visit from them!  I will keep you up- to- date what happens next!  Only Jehovah reads hearts, and I know Jehovah was so proud of me today, telling Sam about our upcoming Memorial!  Also offering to call his brother's wife!  Jehovah answered my prayer, tomorrow, I receive my first payment from my Social Security Disability Benefits tomorrow! I need my right hip to be replaced, and now I'm enrolled in Medicare! I also have a wonderful Drug Prescription Plan too!  Well, it's time for me to get ready for my Tuesday Midweek meeting tonight on Zoom!  I hope you enjoyed reading about my wonderful experience today!  Take care of yourselves, always trust in Jehovah, and rely upon him more now than before, we are deep in the last days of this system of things, and we never know, what's going to happen, only Jehovah knows! I would like to also add, in July, it's been 49 years since I dedicated my life to serve Jehovah!  It's the best decision of my life, and I belong to Jehovah!  I also, turn 64 years young in May!  Agape love, Shirley!!!

     

  3. In answer to me worshipping The Governing Body, is not true! I dedicated my life to serve Jehovah, I belong to Jehovah, I live for Jehovah, and I will die for Jehovah! I deeply respect our 8 Governing Body members! They have the authority from Jesus Christ, who is the Head of the Congregation, and his heavenly Father, Jehovah, has given him the authority to rule in heaven! They direct the Governing Body, through Jehovah's holy spirit, over Jehovah's Worlwide Organization as a Body! I just don't understand why 4Jah2Me is even allowed to be on this website, he plainly stated he is not one of Jehovah's Witnesses! To me, he's an apostate trying to confuse us, true Jehovah's Witnesses on here! I joined this website, because as one of the true over 8 million and growing Jehovah's Witnesses, I believe in Jehovah, and have my own personal relationship with him, now for 48 years, and I will never question, or doubt anything about Jehovah, or his appointed anointed ones, by his holy spirit, the 8 Imperfect men, who have Jehovah's approval, and backing 100%.
  4. In reply to my statement, our beloved Governing Body, I can say this from my personal meeting of some of our Governing Body Members! These are most friendly, kind, and caring men I've ever met! In 2006, I met Br. Samuel F. Herd, at one of my Circuit Assemblies! In 2010, I met Br. David Splane at my "REMAIN CLOSE TO JEHOVAH" District Convention, and I've met Br. Stephen Lett, twice. The first time I met him was in 2012, at our "SAFEGUARD YOUR HEART" District Convention, and in 2015, at our "IMITATE JESUS" District Convention. Another has changed since then, now it's not called "District" it's been renamed "Regional". I have the original photos taken with them too! These imperfect men were appointed to our Governing Body, that Jehovah entrusted though his holy spirit to take care of his Worldwide Organization. Now, there is so much for these appointed members to take care of, now they have appointed helpers to different committees. In 2020, this was the first time ever, The Governing Body, through Jehovah's holy spirit guiding them, had to make several major decisions. First, was the decision about The Memorial, since it couldn't be held at our Kingdomhalls, it was announced in a letter from The Governing Body, that we had to have it on Zoom! So, we had to have the Memorial Celebration in our own private homes, on that most sacred night, and some had prepared the unleavened bread, and had a glass of wine next to it, and displayed their beautiful table settings with their precious emblems! The next major decision that had to be made was what to decide about having our "ALWAYS REJOICE" Regional Convention. We couldn't hold it in other countries, like they used to have years ago, because of the Pandemic, so another letter from The Governing Body, said, we were going to have all 3 days on JW Stream, but it was by invitation only, and it was sent to all our emails! We happily viewed it different days and enjoyed all 3 days of our most needed Spiritual Food. Yes, I personally feel that these appointed imperfect men,, is our beloved Governing Body, also referred to in the Bible, as The Faithful and Discreet Slave! These 8 appointed imperfect men: Stephen Lett, David Splane, Gerrit Losch, Geoffrey Jackson, Samuel F. Herd, Mark Sanderson, Anthony Morris 111, and newly appointed Kenneth Cook Jr. are a small group of mature Christians who provide direction for Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide. Their work is twofold: They oversee the preparation of Bible- based instruction through the publications, meetings, and school's of Jehovah's Witnesses! They look to the Universal Sovereign, Jehovah, and to the Head of the congregation, Jesus, for guidance. You can find all this information in my reply on J.W. Org!
  5. Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! It's been a very unusual year for all of us!  We only have 18 more days left in this year of 2020!  How can I summarize this year?  First of all, in the months of January and  February, we were able to go door to door, now, because of the Pandemic, starting in the month of March, we have to do letter writing or telephone witnessing, to count our Field Service time!   Our midweek meetings, and Sunday meetings are on Zoom now!  Our circuit assemblies are now held on JW Stream by an invitation, we receive in our emails!  Little did anyone know, we were facing a Corona Virus, or Covid19, since December of 2019, but then it started in Italy, Spain, and China, lots of people who contracted the Virus were dying!  Sadly, somehow the virus made it's way into The United States, if we would have known to wear a mask then, maybe  so many people wouldn't have died, because these last 10 months, we found out that this virus was air-borne, and one person who had the virus could infect two people by just coughing, or sneezing, through droplets spraying  out invisibly  from their mouth!  Even talking to another person face to face spread droplets to that person!  We received instructions from the Governing Body, to start disinfecting our seats in our beautiful Kingdom halls, then to keep us safe, we were given instructions again,  from The Governing Body to stop attending our meetings at our Kingdomhalls!  This was our first year that we had to hold our Memorial Celebration held annually, in our own homes, Worldwide that sacred night! Then our "ALWAYS REJOICE" 3 day Convention, which is normally held in different countries, had to be viewed on JW Stream on different days for us to receive our Spiritual Food at the proper time, also on Saturday, was a very special day, everyone who wanted to get baptized, had to be baptized, either in a river, a swimming pool, a horse trough, at various locations in their homes! They will always remember that special day, when they dedicated their lives to Jehovah!  We were read a letter on Zoom, instructions from the Governing Body how to stay safe, disinfect our homes, to keep from getting Covid19!  So, now were conducting our personal  Bible Studies on Zoom, and contacting our Return Visits by phone, to keep us and our loved ones safe! Sadly, last I heard, 5,000 of our Spiritual Family have passed away from Covid19! We will see them again in the upcoming resurrection, as Jehovah has promised us!  Jehovah, through his holy spirit is always protecting us, and our precious Governing Body, send us their love, and their prayers! New Bibles were released in different languages, so many Brothers and Sisters cried receiving their own personal copies of the Bible in their language! What a wonderful blessing from Jehovah!  In the month of  November, a letter from the Governing Body announced  that in  November, a Special Worldwide Campaign would begin!  So many copies of our No.2 2020, Watchtower entitled: "What Is God's Kingdom?"  were printed for each Publisher, our Regular Pioneers, and our Auxiliary Pioneers, and we had to pick up their 16 issues from the brother wearing a mask at our Kingdom hall! We had 35 Auxiliary Pioneers for the month of November,  in my Congregation, which Jehovah was so proud of!  Now , we have 18 more days  left in the month of December,  and I read on JW. ORG, how so many Government officials are making wonderful comments about our No. 2 2020, Watchtower, "What Is God's Kingdom?" Also to see Jehovah intervene with the releasing of 26 Brothers and 2 sisters from Eritrea, was a wonderful blessing from Jehovah, sadly there are still 24 left in prison, but with all our prayers to Jehovah, hopefully soon, they will be released too! We finished our publication, JESUS ,THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFe in November!  The month of  December we started  studying in our Congregation Bible study, our  released in 2018, publication,  PURE WORSHIP OF JEHOVAH RESTORED AT LAST! which was released at our 2018, "BE COURAGEOUS"  REGIONAL CONVENTION!  I hope all you Spiritual Brothers and Sisters, are staying safe, staying well, as we always know in our hearts, that Jehovah, is our Great Protector, and the God of Comfort!  The new year 2021 is coming soon, let's see what Jehovah has in store for us! It's always exciting to me personally, to start a new year, a new year text, and  for us to keep up the preaching work, no matter what the new year brings! Always trust in Jehovah, as we all should, I send all of you my Agape Love, Shirley!!!!

  6. Why are you questioning Jehovah? Through his holy spirit, our beloved governing body receives instructions! Just reading about your topic really makes me wonder, are you even one of Jehovah's Witnesses? If you were, you wouldn't ever question our heavenly father, Jehovah! When you dedicate you life to serve Jehovah, you belong to Jehovah, and he through his holy spirit directs our Governing Body! You develop a close relationship with Jehovah, through our faith, and our trust we believe in Jehovah, and I'm so proud to say, that I have now for 48 years now, and over 8 million and growing everyday, people of the world are accepting Bible Studies, to develop their own personal relationship with Jehovah! Right now, were all living in a Pandemic, thousands of people are dying everyday, sadly 5,000 of our Spiritual Brothers and Sisters have passed away from Covid19! Jehovah has promised us in Romans 5:12: All those in the Memorial tombs will hear his voice... all our loved ones will be resurrected from the dead! So we just need to trust and rely upon Jehovah, for his protection from The Great Tribulation coming soon!!!! Also Jehovah always takes control over everything in his own due time! The construction of Warwick began in September 2015, and was completed in April! On April 29, 2017, Saturday, hosted the second of two special open-house receptions, drawing a larger crowd, then the first event! In a few years the construction of Ramapo will begin in 2022 and will be completed in December 2026, all with the backing of Jehovah, according to his will! So never question Jehovah!!!!!
  7. Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! Wow, what a year 2020, were having! First,  were told that we can't shake hands with my brothers,and  the sisters greet me with a kiss on the cheek, then we have to e!bow bump! And before and after the meetings, we have to disinfect all the chairs, and surfaces! Now, we stopped attending our beautiful kingdom halls! We now have our meetings, and our field service morning service on Zoom! At first,  we had to listen to JW stream! I really love talking to my University Hills Congregation on Zoom! We talk as long as we can,before and after the meetings! I never thought we would have our Memorial this year on Zoom! We had 88 on Zoom, with a total of 190 in attendance! We also listened to the morning worship program in Bethel by one of our governing body members, another brother,  gave the Memorial Discourse! Some of us had the precious Memorial Emblems on their beautiful tables! I always love the Memorial Campaign too! But due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we had to stop cart witnessing, door-to-door, and start letter writing or telephone witnessing! I'm still waiting for some sisters to join me in telephone witnessing!!! Sadly, in the United States, 9,000 of our Brothers have contracted the Corona Virus, 2,500 have recovered, which is good news,563, are hospitalized, which is bad news, and 219 have fallen asleep in death! Soon we will see our beloved Brothers and Sisters again, when all of our loved ones are resurrected! I wore a mask today for the first time, just to go grocery shopping at Kroger! I was able to get the last six pack of toilet paper, now there's plenty of meat, plenty of paper towels, but I heard disinfecting supplies are hard to find! I would like to add one more thing, there are some kind, caring people in this wicked system of things! Today, at self-check, this very sweet young lady paid for my groceries today with her debit card! I was in shock, so was the lady in the self-check out! I had the money,  she said can I pay for your groceries? I said I have the money, she said put your money away, I've had some hard times, and I want to do this for you! The lady in self- check out said " Awww"  I asked her name, and told her my name, I told her I wish I could hug you, so we gave each other air hugs! She was afraid I would be offended, and I said No,not at all, just shocked! What a wonderful human being displaying an act of kindness to a stranger she never met! I went to my car, and cried, and thanked Jehovah for this very unexpected meeting this wonderful young lady,  and his blessing!  My niece's aide said another lady at Walmart, bought another ladies groceries for her too! Jehovah provides us with everything we need! Trust in Jehovah! Stay safe all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! I did receive my stimulus check too, , and extra food stamps!! Agape love, Shirley

  8. Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! This year of 2019 is going by so fast!  I know we don't celebrate birthdays, but, I  just turned 62, and I'm retired now, my oldest granddaughter just turned 16, my youngest daughter turns 22 tomorrow! My youngest granddaughter just turned 3! I've been so busy attending two Weddings, one on September 27, 2019! The other one was on October 12, 2019!  Now their Spiritual Husband and Wife! I'm so happy for them! I hope one day, my Spiritual Husband will find me! Sadly, we had so much passing away of our Spiritual Brother's Mother, now his sister! Another Sister lost her Sister, also a Regular Pioneer! Then my Field Service Group Overseer's wife lost her father, the following week her Uncle, and then a cousin, and just last week another cousin!  We just lost our beloved Elderly Sister on Wednesday, October 16, 2019!  She was baptized in 1984, a Regular Pioneer, and I was privileged to work in Field Service with her, and she wanted to have another tea party, and just talk among each other, while enjoying our Spiritual Association together! Also, we took photos of us helping serve The LDC luncheon in April, when they renovated our beautiful kingdomhall!  I was able to go to view her one last time  at the Funeral Home, on Friday, October 25, 2019!  We had her beautiful Memorial on Saturday, October 26, 2019!  Our kingdomhall was filled with her family, and all those who loved her, including me! She was known for her tea parties and she had the Field Service Group meet at her home! She loved wearing hats! The sisters who were able to attend one of her tea parties, all gathered around her picture at her Memorial and everyone took photos!  We have 3 newly baptized Jehovah's Witnesses in our congregation! Two sisters who are sisters, and one brother! I'm patiently waiting on my hearing to see if they approve my disability benefits! Also, I received a phonecall from Social Security, and I may be able to get my first ex- husband's Social Security benefits! So I just keep busy, every Saturday go out in Field Service, and work with different ones in my congregation!  I've been at my congregation now one year! I love all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters in my congregation, and they love me! I was able to go to our State Fair! I saw a Special Metropolitan Witness Cart on the way to the Fair! I drove my car to the Train Station, and rode the train to the Fair!  My oldest daughter has been hospitalized since June! I was able to visit her twice! They finally found out what she had! Some type of infection through out her body! My oldest son, and youngest daughter keep me informed about their sister! They live in Plano, and visit her more often!  I hope everyone is doing ok! May Jehovah bless all of you! Agape love, Shirley! P.S I hope 2020 is a good year for you! 😀

      Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! Here's an update on my oldest daughter! My son called me last night and told me she's been moved to another room, and she's getting better each day! I poured my heart out to Jehovah to watch over her, she came very close to dying! Jehovah comforted me all this time, I never knew from one day to the next, whether she was getting better or getting worse! I give all my thanks and  I trust in Jehovah, with all my heart! No matter what we go through, good times and bad times, all we have to do is always trust in Jehovah, he will never let us suffer more than we can bear as human beings! Agape love, Shirley!!!😂

  9. Hello  to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters, it's been awhile since I was on here, I have so much to tell you! I attended all three days of my 2019 " LOVE NEVER FAILS" REGIONAL CONVENTION on July 19-21, also on August 25th, Sunday, at Irving Convention Center in Irving, Texas! We have 35 new spiritual brothers and sisters, including The Swahili Group! One young black brother from my former congregation was baptized! One young black Swahili Sister had to be baptized three times! Her hair piece was keeping her from being completely submerged under water, even the last time to baptize her, the Brother had to hold her hairpiece! No one laughed at her horrible experience,  but they turned off the monitor. I wish I could have met her in person, the expression on her face was priceless, she had the look of happiness,of becoming one of Jehovah's Witnesses! We had over 3,000 everyday, and on Sunday, we had over 4,000, which also included the Swahili Group! This was the first time for the Swahili Group to attend our Convention!  They didn't announce the exact count on Sunday, so I went directly to the Brothers, and I asked several Brothers, why didn't they announce how many were baptized on Sunday! One of the Brothers who helped baptize everyone, told me that they miscounted, and thought they were 39 that were baptized, but they counted them again, and 35 was the actual count including The Swahili Group!   We also tied into the Toronto, Canada International Convention! A very sweet sister from my Congregation who is an anesthesiologist gave me a prescription for my handicapped placard! So I had to use it all three days, and that Sunday too! I love it so much, it's a blessing from Jehovah, now I can legally  park in handicapped spaces at the stores! This year I had to use my roller walker, We were able to go in first at 8:00 a. m. if you had a walker, or in a wheelchair! I just love that provision from Jehovah!   I sat in the Elderly and Infirmed Section, all three days of my Convention! But On August 25th, I had to sit in another section, but the Brothers were so loving and helpful to me!  My right hip is getting worse, and soon I 'll need to get a right hip replacement, after my car is paid off, which will be soon! On July 29, 2019, it's been 47 years since I was baptized! I just retired from working, and now at 62 years of age, I'm getting my early retirement benefits now, since June 12, 2019! Everyday,  I took a photo in front of each day's theme for that day! On Sunday,  I was going to take a photo after the program was over, but they turned off the Monitor! So, on August 25, 2019, I attended that Sunday, and so happy I did! I was able to take my photo in front of Sunday's theme! Also, I  saw my niece, and my great-niece, whom I haven't seen in three years, since her great-grandfather's Memorial Service on December 10, 2016! After I ate my lunch, I went to see my Spiritual  Sister's from my former Congregation! I was so happy to see them, and especially happy to see the Elderly Spiritual Sister who pioneered with my Mother in the 1940's! She and her husband are in their 90's and still faithfully serving Jehovah! We tied into the Phoenix International Convention, and we listened to Br. Samuel Herd, who I met in person and took a photo with, in 2006! I've been attending University Hills Congregation in Irving, Texas,  now for one year! August 2018, I started attending there!  My name was added to the Congregation Field Service Groups, 4 months later! I love everyone there, and they love me, especially  the young children, I usually give them candy or gummy bears, in return for a hug! They always see me at every meeting, out in Field Service, every Saturday, and I even comment at the meetings! I  gave my first talk there in  January of 2019! Everyone complimented me on my talk, and when I make comments! I always give my best to Jehovah!   Two of the young black sisters, who are real sisters, are getting baptized at our Circuit Assembly on October 5, 2109!   I filed for my disability benefits again! I'm leaving everything up to Jehovah, if it is according to his will!  I'm still living with my niece, until my disability benefits are approved, or if my housing comes through! I even received a $3 raise on my Food Stamps!  Yes, I'm not ashamed to admit, I'm getting welfare assistance from the government! I think Jehovah would approve! We pay taxes, so we are entitled to Government Assistance, only if we need it! Some of our Spiritual Brothers, and Spiritual Sisters, have not attended their Conventions, yet, so I can't reveal anything else about our Convention, just wait and see! You'll love every minute your there! My prayers are with everyone who has been affected by the recent Tropical Storm, Imelda in Houston, Texas! May Jehovah watch over them and their families! I love all my Spiritual Family!! I forgot to tell you that my youngest daughter, just received her Associates Degree in the mail yesterday! As her Mother, I'm so proud of her!  I'm getting ready to upload my 2019 " LOVE NEVER Fails" Regional  Convention photos now!! Agape Love, Shirley
     

  10. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters, I have a new job, that pays 50 cents less, but I love my new client, and her best friend is one of Jehovah's Witnesses!  Jehovah is taking good care of me! I also started driving for LYFT! It helps me have a little extra money too!! I just uploaded my beautiful Mothers photo! She taught us 6 children to grow to love Jehovah!  She was a Regular Pioneer, and such a very faithful lover of Jehovah!  On July 29, 1972, 46 years ago, my deceased sister and I dedicated our lives to serve Jehovah! Sadly, 15 years ago, my beautiful Mother passed away, and it was a very emotional day for  me!  My sister too, 3 months later! I look forward to welcoming them back, as well as all my loved ones soon in the resurrection Jehovah has promised us!   Our Circuit Assembly was on September 9, 2018!  We have 8 new brothers and sisters! Two of the sisters were from my former Congregation, Dallas West English!  We had 1, 343 for the morning attendance, and 1, 361 for the afternoon attendance!  Since August 1, 2018, I moved in with my niece because she's having open heart surgery soon!   I'm now attending University Hills Congregation! Everyone is welcoming me now!  My publishers card is on it's way! I was so nervous at first to attend a different Congregation, but I'm starting to feel the spiritual love from everyone there! They greet me now and I'm commenting at the meetings, and I've went out in the field service with a few sisters and brothers! The State Fair of Texas starts on September 28-October 21st! Last year was a great success, so their having Dallas West English as the Hub, again! I'm not able to share in the cart witnessing this year either! You have to stand for two hours, and because of my right hip hurting, I'm unable to stand that long! I always give 100% to Jehovah! I have my disability exam on Monday, I pray to Jehovah, if it's his will I'm able to receive my disability check! Well I guess this is enough news for now, my prayers are with everyone suffering from Hurricane Florence, and also all my spiritual brothers and sisters world-wide! Agape love, Shirley!?

  11. Hello everyone, I would love to share with you two more wonderful experiences that happened to me recently in the Field Service! On May I2, 2018, Saturday, a lovely sister and I were going door- to- door and I had the latest issue No.2 2018 Watchtower, "What Does the Future Hold?" I introduced myself, and the sister, then I asked the sweet black lady named Esther," Want do you think about your Future,"? and shortly after I ask her the question, She said "I 'll take that magazine", we were both shocked, she had responded so quickly! In 46 years, ( July 29, 1972), since I've been baptized, and went in the door- to- door work, this was the first time this has ever happened to me!!!!! My next wonderful experience I had was yesterday, June 23, 2018! It was the first day of our Convention Campaign work, Our Regional 2018 "Be Courageous" Convention starts on July 13-15 2108 in Frisco, Texas! We also were going door- to -door in the Invitation work, and my lovely sister and I were working together, we went to the last house on the street, and a really nice black man named Ron, opened the door, and I introduced myself, and the sister I was with, and showed him our invitation, the times, the date, and any other questions he might have, I directed him to JW.ORG on the back of the invitation, he was really nice, and seemed that he was interested. I hope he does attend our Convention! I'm going to follow up on these wonderful and hopeful return visits! At our beautiful Kingdomhall, after Field Service, almost half of my Congregation, attended our Cart Witnessing Training! We were handed a Public Witnessing Guideline List, and after everyone signed the list, who had attended, the Service Committee, has to approve of everyone if their qualified to partake in the Cart Witnessing Program! I've already did Cart Witnessing three times, so I know that I'm already approved! Also the Brothers already told me earlier! Were trying to get two colleges in the Dallas area, and maybe the Dallas Public Library!!! Also the Dart Stations!!!! Our State Fair of Texas is coming up soon on September 28- October 21, 2018!! We had such wonderful experiences, last year, and our congregation was assigned to be a Hub! Jehovah is always blessing me, and as long as I continue to remain loyal and faithful to Jehovah, he will always bless me, and take care of me!!! I found out on JW.ORG ,On May 18, 2018, Friday, a Boeing 737 crashed, shortly after take off from Havana, Cuba, 113 passengers, with only one person surviving, and sadly, a Witness family of three, a father, a mother, and their 22 year old son died in the plane crash! My heart and prayers go out to their families, may Jehovah comfort them right now!!! Soon we will see them again and our loved ones in the resurrection!!! They are in Jehovah's Memory! I hope everyone has a great weekend, and enjoy your upcoming Regional Convention! Agape love, Shirley Ann Lowery
  12. Yes, every other day in the news, we hear about famous people, and not so famous people, committing suicide, there's a reason why people who don't serve Jehovah resort to doing away with their lives! In my family, my Uncle Henry owned a small refrigeration business in Sinton, Texas! Something happened, he had gotten himself into lots of debt, and he asked his children for help, but they ignored him, so they found him dead in his shop! He didn't feel life was worth living and being in so much debt, he probably felt there was no other way out, so he hung himself, this happened in 1988, My Aunt Marie died from a broken heart, a year later, in 1989, she passed away! I also had another Uncle hang himself, I really never knew the reasons why! One of my former high school classmates, a few years ago, committed suicide! Only Jehovah knows why everyone gives up on their life, we don't! In regards to Ash, why he committed suicide, we may never know, only Jehovah knows! I've also heard that Jack Ryan is an apostate, I don't know personally if it's true or not! But, he shouldn't be posting subjects like this on here in my opinion! My hope is to see my Aunt and Uncle and all my loved ones when they're resurrected as Jehovah has promised us in Revelation 21: 4- And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The former things have passed away! Thank you for replying to this subject! Agape love, Shirley
  13. This is just my personal opinion, but why would you post something that shows she's definitely is an apostate! You can see even the see the T-shirt she wearing you can see jw.org and the letters KULT on there! She is talking about us, Jehovah's Witnesses, and his loving World Wide organization, shunning certain things, and just because Ash, her friend didn't go back to serving Jehovah like his parents did, she's blaming Jehovah, for him committing suicide! Ash, made that personal choice to stop serving Jehovah! His parents wanted him to go back to Jehovah! I, myself raised all three of my grown children in the truth! They made their own choices not to serve Jehovah! I pray that they decide to return to Jehovah before it's too late! She wants everyone to feel sorry for Ash, that's why she posted this apostate video! Ash, committed suicide because he had his personal reasons, and I'm sure it wasn't being pressured by his parents to return to Jehovah! I didn't even finish watching this video, and her mocking Jehovah, and our World Wide Brotherhood, because Jehovah wouldn't even want us to watch this apostate video! I admit, I was curious and wanted to see what she had to say! Satan, wants us to be tempted to watch videos like these, because he hates Jehovah, and hates us! Were over 8 million and growing ever stronger everyday! Satan's old system of things is passing away, and he knows he has only a short time left, we are deep in the last days, as the Governing Body tells us! I would like to know what everybody who reads my reply to this apostate video, what do you personally think about my personal reply!
  14. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here! I'm so excited on Saturday, March 3, 2018, starts our Memorial Campaign. Can you believe it's going to be on a Saturday? In 2017, we had over 2 million in attendance worldwide. This is our most important and special occasion, to show our gratitude and appreciation to our heavenly Father, Jehovah! He gave us his only-begotten son, Jesus Christ, for a ransom for our sacrifice. Sisters, have you chosen your dress yet for the Memorial? I haven't decided yet what I'm wearing yet! But I can assure you, it's going to be beautiful. I love how all the spiritual families dress their children so nice, the young sisters have beautiful new dresses, and the young brothers have new suits, and us sisters, who look beautiful in that certain dress they choose  just for the Memorial! Brothers, look very handsome in their new suits.They pose with their family and take photos, which they proudly post and on Social Media!  I also post my photo, I'm proud to say that I am one of the over 8 million Jehovah's Witnesses in attendance of this momentous occasion. I look back on my past photos I've posted and have on my computer, and just realize that the years are going by so fast. Also, our "Be Courageous" 2018 Regional Convention starts on July 13-15 2018! I can't wait to see our what new releases, and see my former Congregations, I used to attend years ago, spiritual brothers and sisters,  Our Circuit Overseer's visit is March 13-18! 2018 is going to be such an exciting year! Let's see what Jehovah has lovingly prepared for us! Agape love, Shirley

      Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here! I wasn't able to attend The Memorial for my own Congregation, Dallas West English,by me not having my own car, but thanks to Jehovah, I attended my client's and spiritual sister's Memorial at her Congregation, Beverly Hills! It was at 9:15 p.m. Her family and I went out to eat at Olive Garden! We all went together with her inactve son, and her ex-husband met us there at Olive Garden! Her son had made plans to attend the Memorial with us, but her ex-husband decided to attend the Memorial too! We had in attendance 295, plus 15 people had to stand up! Dallas West English had 220, my former Congregation, Elwood had 315, and One of our Partakers was invited to Euless Congregation, which had an attendance of 615! I prayed to Jehovah for a car, and as soon as I received my Income Tax Refund, I started looking at cars, on Facebook, and on April 13, 2018! I joyfully signed the papers for my 2004 Nissan Altima! This is a wonderful blessing from Jehovah! I had been looking on facebook, for a car to purchase! Everyone turned me down, but this one person. I asked him if he would take a down payment on my car, he said yes! So, that Friday, my daughter took me to his car lot, he owns, and test drove my car, and only seeing the photos of it on facebook , I loved it! I was signing the papers, and he told me the man upstairs told me to give you this car! Also, he told me, he never takes a down payment on a used car he sells, I'm the first! He checked out my profile on Facebook and said I was a Church Lady! He knew he could trust me and make my car payments! I give all my thanks and glory to Jehovah for my beautiful car! I'm so happy now that Jehovah has blessed me with my car! I already have insurance on it, and on the 15th I make my first car payment!  I just turned 61 years young recently, and Jehovah has taken care of me all these years! Sadly, my ex-client Mary, had a massive stroke, and I took her cousin to visit her at the Nursing Home where she's at, and she remembered her cousin's name and who she was!  Her cousin was so happy, she remembered her! I told her that Jehovah spoke to her heart, and put it in her mind to remember her! She is paralyzed on her left side, and can talk, but is not able to get out all her words, and has to be fed through a feeding tube, and has to be turned every two hours, so she won't get a bedsore! It was so upsetting to see her like that! She was always so theocratic, a Regular Pioneer, also regularly attended all the meetings, conventions, and now she can't even move! I know Jehovah appreciates all her precious service to him! He's watching over her, I know she is in his memory! Even though she hasn't passed away yet, he loves her all faithful, devotion to him! I had to be patient for 10 months, and rely upon Jehovah, for him blessing me with my car! Jehovah is a very patient, loving, kind, and merciful God! I love Jehovah with my whole heart, with my whole mind, and whole soul! I hope everyone has a great weekend, agape love, Shirley!!!

  15. :DHello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here!  I'd love to share my cover photo with everyone!  This lovely spiritual sister was at my first wedding on October 30,1976! She attended my wedding at Duncanville Kingdomhall  Of Jehovah's Witnesses in Duncanville,Texas! She now lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico! She was staying with another sister who takes me to the meetings on Thursday! So, after our meeting a brother took this photo of us! I still have my original wedding photos of her and her two children at my wedding! Sadly, our marriage only lasted 20 years! He became inactive, and I assumed his role of training our two children to serve Jehovah! Unfortunately, they stopped serving Jehovah!  It's  been 41 years since we've seen each other! Jehovah has taking very good care of us all these years! I was so happy to see her still serving Jehovah! One of her son's is a Pioneer, they live in McKinney, Texas!  Jehovah has blessed me with another client! So, hopefully soon, I'll be able to buy a car! One of our lovely elderly sister's daughter whom she was studying with passed away on Tuesday! Her daughter asked to be cremated, and a small gathering of her family and friends is this Saturday! She's lost other children too!  Soon, she will welcome them back in her arms again, as we await the resurrection! I'm so excited on December 30, 2017, I'm attending a formal party that a sister hosts every year! This year we have to wear red, white, or black! It's a lot of fun, first we eat, then we enjoy entertainment, and then we dance to different songs! Also,we have door prizes! I hope I win something this year!  I'm really excited to start our Congregation Bible Study in our new book: JESUS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE this Thursday! Well, 2017 is almost over! Only 12 more days left  for 2017!  I love our  new year text: THOSE HOPING IN JEHOVAH WILL REGAIN POWER- ISAIAH 40:31!  I hope everyone has a great 2018! My prayers are with my spiritual brothers and sisters losing their homes in the fires in California! May Jehovah comfort them and protect them! Agape love, Shirley
