  1. Hello all my spiritual brothers and sisters!  I just had to share my two wonderful experiences I had Saturday before my field service and during my field service! I usually have my latest issues in my magazine bag, but I had forgotten them at my house, so I went back to get them. Then I went to McDonalds to get my yogurt parfait! I normally  put them in my magazine bag, but I had left them in my lap, so as I was paying for my yogurt parfait, the cashier said to me "Give me one of those books" I love to read them and look up the scriptures, and bring me some more! Wow, I was so excited, I said Thank you Jehovah!! The next experience I had was in the territory we worked in Saturday! It just so happens that my return visit was in the territory we were working in, so I went to his house too, and gave him his latest issue, but my experience that I'd love to share with you is that in the last house the woman and man were sitting in their car, so I approached the woman and showed her my Watchtower No.4 and she said " Oh I used to read those books , and the man grabbed it out of her hand, and was going to give it back to me, and told me "She goes to her own church" and she grabbed it back and said" I'm keeping it"! So she went into her house and I explained to the man, that were not trying to change their religion, were just carrying out Jesus commandment  to us , to preach the good news as Matthew 24:14 and Matthew 28:19 &20 says!! He did listen to me ! So Jehovah's Holy Spirit and his angels were with me as always!! Agape love, Shirley!!:D

  2. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters! I've been through a lot of chaos within this past month!  My roommate attacked me, and I left the house immediately,  and by the time the police arrived, she left! I had to leave my former congregation for a little while and move in with my son!!   Get a storage unit, and rent a van to carry some of my stuff to my storage unit!  I felt so lost, even though I was living with my son! I attended another congregation that Sunday!! I just cried and prayed to Jehovah, and trusted in him!! Well, 10 days later, I was checking out various places to rent, then I saw the sign, efficiency for rent, he only had 2 left, and one upstairs bedroom loft, so I had the choice to pick the apartment I wanted! I'm so thankful to Jehovah for listening to my heartfelt prayers to him!! I will always trust in Jehovah, he takes care of all his loyal ones!!! No matter what we are facing in  these  critical times, we can always put Jehovah first, and he will take care of us!!!  Agape love, Shirley!!!!:D

  3. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here,  I have something very sad to share with you, on December 22, 2016, our beloved brother David  "Dave" Wicks had gasoline poured on him deliberately and was set on fire, in Burney, California! He was only 54 years old. He lived for Jehovah, and died for Jehovah!  Their offering a $10,000 reward  for any information concerning Br Wicks horrible death! They have a man on the security camera who was in a hoodie, and rode a bicycle. We know were living in the last days, and we may be persecuted or even imprisoned.  The article was in this paper called "The Dreaming Devil" which also has other horror stories! The website is www.dreamindemons.com! We all know that this was a demonic act from Satan and his demons!! Also, this is a demonic newspaper! I just wanted to inform all you brothers and sisters pray to Jehovah everyday for his protection against Satan and his demons! He hates us and Jehovah, and will do everything in his power to have us stray away from serving Jehovah!  I hope and pray they capture this man who murdered a very kind, sincere, loving brother!  My prayers are with his family! May Jehovah watch over each and everyone of you, and protect you!!! Agape love, Sister Shirley Ann Lowery

  4. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters! :D I've recently moved in with a single spiritual sister, who also is my client, and another spiritual sister with her two daughters on September 30, 2017! My lease to my old apartment I lived in for a year, expired! So,  I prayed to Jehovah to help me make this major decision affecting my life! I felt this was the right decision for me, to make for right now!   I now have all my personal belongings in storage!  Now, I don't have to ride buses or trains to get to work! I'm a lot  closer to my kingdomhall now! My client attends a different congregation, so sometimes I go with her, or if I get a ride from someone in my congregation, I attend mine! I'm so proud of my congregation, we've been assigned the Hub! September 29-October 22, 2017, 5,000 volunteers from different congregations meet at my kingdomhall at 5:45 a.m. are assigned to different locations in downtown Dallas. This is the first time this provision under Jehovah's direction, and the Branch, of Special Cart Witnessing has ever been  done during the opening day and closing day of the State Fair of Texas. Since I turned 60 years young, on October 19, 2017 I was able to get my Senior ticket to be admitted free only on Thursday's! I'm also seeking another employment,  so I can buy another car! The sister charges me $275.00 for my rent! We all cook sometimes different meals! I also found out that on Dallas Housing Authority had removed 5,000 names including mine, from the waiting list I was on! So now on November 1st, Section 8 will open up and take in more applicants and stay open! I pray to Jehovah to help me get my housing soon! this is just a temporary move right now for me! I just have to be patient and wait on Jehovah! Sometimes, we have to make major changes in our lives, that were not ready to face! I know my heavenly father, Jehovah will always take care of his loyal servants! My prayers are with all my spiritual brothers and sisters who were displaced from their homes, in Houston, Florida, Puerto Rico, during Hurricane Maria! May Jehovah bring comfort to each and everyone of them! We also lost a beautiful 42 year young, spiritual sister in Las Vegas! My prayers are with her husband, and her six year old daughter! I read there were over 1,000 people who attended her funeral! She will be in Jehovah's Memory! I hope everyone has a great weekend, agape love, Shirley!

  6. DONT GIVE UP!!!! Rely on Jehovah,  all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here! 2017 has been a busy year!  The Special Dallas Cart Witnessing Campaign was a great success of course, with Jehovah's Holy Spirit! I heard that there were 87 carts, over 2,000 wonderful experiences, and 200 of our disfellowshipped, and inactive Jehovah's Witnesses, were drawn to the carts and decided to take the brochure "Return to Jehovah"! Jehovah is calling his inactive servants, and all our disfellowshipped ones  back to him! I also heard that all these, 2,000 wonderful experiences in Dallas, Texas might possibly be on one of our monthly JW Broadcasts! They had over 5,000 volunteers from Waco, Tyler, and other cities! This is the first time in Dallas, Texas,  that the State Fair of Texas held  on September 29- October 22, 2017 allowed the cart witnessing to be allowed! The volunteers had 2 hour intervals and there was always a brother with the sisters!  I'm so proud that our congregation, Dallas West English, was assigned to be a Hub! They met each day at 5:45 to discuss the arranged locations, and of course ended the small group meeting with prayer! Today, is a very special day for me! 9 years ago I started attending my loving, warm congregation!  We have 19 Regular Pioneers, 100 publishers, and a few unbaptized publishers as of now!  Were in the last month of December 2017!  What a year we had!   We were one of the congregations to help distribute all the needed supplies to all our brothers and sisters who were displaced in their homes,  by Hurricane Harvey and Maria! Jehovah always takes care of his loyal ones! We've lost a few in death this year, but soon we'll see them again in the resurrection! A beautiful sister lost her life in Las Vegas! 1,000 attended her funeral! Puerto Rico, Mexico, Rockport, Texas, Houston, Florida, all these places were destroyed by these hurricanes!  I heard reports on JW. Org, they are rebuilding their homes, assembly halls, and kingdomhalls! Jehovah comforts those who have lost their loved ones! He is the God of Comfort!  I pray that 2018 is a better year for everyone! I've been employed with my job now 4 months! I'm still looking for other employment! I 'm getting rides to my meetings, and my field service on Saturday!  I loved our Annual Meeting on October 7, 2017! To be a part of the dedication of our New World Headquarters in Warwick, New York was so exciting to attend! Many new changes are happening in 2018!  In August 25-27 at our DONT GIVE UP Regional Convention in Frisco, Texas, we had 17 new brothers and sisters get baptized, the new releases, and seeing all my former friends from other congregations I used to attend! I took lots of selfies with them! We volunteered to clean our section everyday!  We had 3,236 in attendance on the last day! Jehovah is rapidly increasing our worldwide brother hood! Over 8 million and growing more and more every year! I just wanted to share my good news and events happening in my life here in Dallas, Texas! I hope everyone has a great 2018! Agape love, Shirley!

  7. 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!!!

  8. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters! I've been so busy moving into my new apartment!!  I'm still unpacking my things! So, I started going out in the field service on Sundays, instead of Saturdays!! I'm also attending all my meetings!!  One of my former clients, Br.Frank Machart Jr. passed away on November 22, 2016!  He remained faithful to Jehovah for 98 years, one month, and one day!  He was an elder, spoke very fluent Spanish, help form 2 Spanish congregations, did prison ministry for 13  years,  and helped many brothers come to love Jehovah! He was in the Missionary work with my Mother, all their 3 children serve Jehovah, but my brother fell out of the truth! My mother and Frank pioneered together in the 1940's! He and his brother Lada, used the phonograph records to preach to people! I was his caregiver for awhile, but sadly, the deadly disease, Alzheimer's took his precious memories away, and ending his life here on earth! He will be missed so much, and is definitely in Jehovah's memory! The last time I saw him, I told him I loved him, he replied to me, I love you too! His Memorial Service will be at 1:00 p.m. at the kingdomhall he attended for 14  years in Grand Prairie, Texas!  East Grand Prairie Congregation loved him so much!!  He made a great name for himself, and made Jehovah so proud of him!!!  I hope everyone has a great weekend! Agape love, Shirley

  9. 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!!!😂

I was 15 years old, my deceased sister was 14!! We were baptized in Oklahoma, City, Oklahoma and they didn't have a swimming pool there, so we had to all meet at a hotel where we were baptized in a heated pool!  Also, on Friday,  we started our Regional Convention Invitation Campaign!!  Our convention  starts on August 19-21!!! I hope everyone has a great weekend! The Spanish congregation had their convention last weekend, they had 30 to get baptized!!! Agape love, Shirley Ann Lowery

  12. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here! Yesterday, I went to the Post Office to mail my letters to Russia! Remember, don't forget to count your time writing your letters! I'm so proud to be a part of this Global Writing Campaign! This really nice lady, Barbara, went up to the postal worker before me, she was waiting to talk to someone else, then I went up to the postal clerk, and asked her if she could take my photo holding my letters, she said, she couldn't do it because of the security cameras, so I asked Barbara,  she said she would, also she had overheard me say Russia! She said : Your going to Russia!  I very respectfully replied: No, I'm sending these letters to Russia! Then I explained why I was sending these letters to Russia! She was very impressed and told me that she hopes these letters will change their minds!! I told her that all we can do now is write our letters and pray for brothers and sisters in Russia! I told her that we have to mail our letters by April 1st! They will make their final decision on April 5th!  I asked her politely if she would take my photo of me holding my letters, she took my photo, and then we introduced ourselves to each other! I told the postal worker before I gave her my letters to mail, I hope these letters reach their hearts, she said they will! I was able to witness to both of them about the situation in Russia! This is our last week for our Memorial Campaign!!!  I know Jehovah was so proud of me! Agape love, Shirley

      A very nice experience you made, sister Shirley :) Thank you for sharing ! I heard similar experiences from others too, thats a wonderful witness, GREAT ! But now we had to wait of next week.... but we should pray very intensive the next days. Jehovah has HIS plan and HE always will WIN?❤️  Agape love  and greetings from Germany :)

  13. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here!   Today is the last day to send our letters to Russia! Also, this is our last week for our Memorial Campaign! Next Saturday on April 8th, all 7 congregations,  were the only English one, are going to meet at our beautiful kingdomhall, and do some major cleaning in preparation for The Memorial! Were bringing food, drinks, and will be  sharing  all. our  goodies everyone brings!! This is so exciting!!!  I can't believe this is happening, but my client died yesterday at 3:00 p.m!  I worked for her, nearly a year, and  we were very close! She fell and broke her hip, and after being placed in a nursing home, I was able to see her one last time, on Monday, she told me she loved me, and I told her I loved her! I kissed her goodbye, and I knew this would be the last time I would see her alive!  She fought so hard to beat the cancer! Then, I found out a sister's grandmother also had cancer died the week before! Now, this morning a elderly pioneer sister passed away at 3:00 a.m. On facebook, they put a brother's obituary on there! His funeral is today!  The Pale Horse, represents Death,  is really taking over! But, we have the promise from Jehovah , all our loved ones will be resurrected!  Death will be no more... Out in field service today, I went to   one of my return visits, handed her a Memorial invitation, also,  I gave her the latest Watchtower, The Four Horsemen, How Their Ride Affects You, as I showed her the beautifully illustrated pictures of the Four Horse Men,  she said: I'm going to definitely read this!! This is a sad time for me, but Jehovah will help me cope with her death, but I look forward to seeing her and  my loved ones when they are resurrected!!! Also, let's pray for all our brothers and sisters in Russia!! I pray these letters will reach their hearts!   I hope everyone has a great weekend! Enjoy your Memorial as we all will!!! Agape love, Shirley!!!

  14. 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. 

  15. 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!!!!

  16. 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
     

  17. 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!!!

     

  18. Hello all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here! I hope everyone has a great weekend! I would love to chat with you, if you have time! Agape love, Shirley :D

  19. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters! Today, we started our letter writing to Russia! Were also having another evening on Monday to write letters! This is our second week for our Memorial Campaign! So, today I got in three hours of service to Jehovah! I'm so proud of myself, to be one of his loyal servants out of the over 8 million today! The latest update is the post office is running out of international stamps, and a sister was mailing her letters and the man behind her was so impressed, he said "I'll take care of this"! Even the post office employees are replying to all the letters being mailed to Russia! We definitely have Jehovah's holy spirit supporting us worldwide! I hope all of you have a great weekend! Agape love, Shirley!!!?

  20. 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!?

  21. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters on here, I wanted to share my amazing weekend experience with you!  On Saturday, April 8th, all  seven congregations, including ours, met at 10:00 a.m. and some brought breakfast items, donuts, orange juice, etc., and for our lunch at 12:00 p.m., everyone brought different items!  I made a homemade potato salad, which everyone loved, a roast chicken, cream- styled corn, and a two- liter Coke!  We enjoyed our spiritual association, while we worked alongside each other, painting the fence, black, and others planted beautiful flowers, to beautify our beautiful kingdomhall!  We were assigned the outside, while the other congregations, cleaned the inside! Yesterday, they removed all the chairs,  their cleaning the carpets today! I prayed to Jehovah to help me get over my client's death,  it just takes time to heal!   Also, I've prayerfully decided to become an uber driver!  I'm just waiting for my drivers permit, and then I can start driving in Dallas!! I've talked to other drivers, and they really enjoy their uber driving job!  I can also deliver food! I just needed to make changes in my life! Home health work is not enough to pay my bills!  I'm so happy that all our spiritual brothers and sisters in Russia get to enjoy having their Memorial!  On that very special night, April 11th at 7:30 p.m, our time, all of us will be celebrating our Memorial!!  I already have my very pretty purple flowered dress to wear! Everyone dresses up on this very special occasion!  It was such a great privilege for me to share in The Memorial Campaign work!  Let's hope that these invitations reach their hearts! Only Jehovah knows and reads their hearts! I hope everyone enjoys their Memorial, as I always do! We have an anointed brother and an anointed sister in my congregation! Soon, the 144,000 will be completed! The Great Tribulation is almost here, then Armaggedon, which Jehovah will destroy Satan and his demons! Then earth will be transformed into a beautiful paradise! I hope everyone enjoys their week!! Agape love, Shirley!!!

  22. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters! We enjoyed our Memorial on April 11th at 7:30 p.m.!  I know everyone of Jehovah's loyal servants also had their Memorial at different times, on the same night, even in Russia, our spiritual brothers and sisters enjoyed their Memorial!  We had 253 in attendance with two partakers in our congregation! Our Circuit Overseer and his wife are visiting this week so, our Circuit Overseer gave The Memorial Talk!  I love how he ended his prayer: He said that all 253 hearts were here in attendance to celebrate either for  their first time, or for many years,  this Memorial of Jesus Christ's death! Even some of our inactive ones were there!  I took some photos of me beside our beautiful table with the wine and unleavened bread!  Even with some of our younger ones!  Everyone dressed their best, including me, and it was such a great priviledge and honor to be a part of this worldwide celebration!!  I was so excited to post my photos on facebook and instagram!  I really enjoyed looking at everyone else's photos of their families, their beautiful tables, around the world! Especially their happy faces with their children, and their loved ones!  Last year we had over 20 million in attendance worldwide,  I wouldn't be surprised if we surpassed  that number this year!  My prayers are always with each and everyone of you, and Russia!!  I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial, as I did!  We made Jehovah and his son, Jesus Christ, so proud of us! "Keep doing this in remembrance of me!!" As we celebrate every year!  I hope everyone has a great weekend! Agape love, Shirley!!!

  23. Hello to all my spiritual brothers and sisters! I'm officially an uber driver! I've already received 2 5- star ratings! That's the highest score the uber riders give you! They rate you on your driving skills, your car's appearance, etc.  I really enjoy meeting new people! I have a new client starting today! Jehovah has blessed me in so many ways! Now, that I'm 60! I look forward to enjoy many more years serving Jehovah! We had a luncheon on Saturday after field service! It was so nice to spend time with my spiritual sisters! I hope everyone has a great week! Agape love, Shirley!!

     

     

     

     

     

  24. :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

  25. 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
