Public Letter Read to the brothers of North America:
Dear Brothers:
We wish to provide an update on recent natural disasters in our territory and what can be done to provide additional assistance. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria affected 250,000 publishers and damaged more than 6,000 homes in Florida, Puerto Rico, Texas and the virgin islands. In addition, the fires in California areas affected hundreds of editors, and more than 1,400 had to evacuate. Sadly, 29 of their homes were completely destroyed. Because of these disasters, seven active disaster relief committees are operating throughout the territory of our branch. Despite the many tragic events that our brothers and sisters have experienced, we have been truly comforting to see how the brotherhood has helped everyone in need.
In addition to the millions of dollars made available by the organization for disaster relief committees to date, hundreds of congregations and individuals have donated 1.600 tons of relief supplies throughout the country. In recent weeks, humanitarian aid supplies were sent to the islands of Puerto Rico, Turks and Caicos Islands and the virgin islands through 27 flights and 35 shipping containers. Due to the constant need, shipments of food, water and other supplies will continue to be sent to these islands over the next few months. Their generous donations to work around the world and the response of several circuits in the collection of specific supplies when requested are highly appreciated. Such generosity shows the love you have for the Lord and his brothers and sisters in need. Read Proverbs 17:17; 1 cor. 12:26.
Many have asked what other practical help can be given to those who need relief assistance. In the areas where our brothers and sisters have been displaced, many of you have opened their homes to provide shelter, knowing that recovery efforts will take time. Everyone's patience is deeply appreciated. Besides, while the elders and circuit superintendents continue to lead grazing, all of us can kill each other by giving them encouragement and showing compassion and kindness.- Gál. 6: 2; Col. 3:12.
Meanwhile, throughout Texas, Florida and all the affected islands, there is an immediate need for volunteers with construction skills to help with recovery work. Due to the current circumstances, only the brothers will be invited to work in the most affected areas. At This moment, we are requesting brothers who can serve for three weeks or for 6-12 months. To volunteer for this job, contact the secretary of your congregation. For volunteers who have an application filed, make sure your local design / construction volunteer application (DC-50) is updated. The help organisation will invite volunteers through the construction assistant. We ask you not to go to a disaster area without an invitation from the help organization, the construction assistant or a specific branch allocation letter.
The Branch has received numerous calls for donations of clothing and other articles. In some cases, we have identified circuits near our shipping operations to provide specific humanitarian items. In other cases, it is more practical to buy locally to manage storage facilities to store and send materials. Therefore, unless your congregation receives specific instructions through the circuit superintendent, it is recommended that you continue to support the help efforts through donations for work around the world. In addition, the help organisation is making every effort to help the brothers and sisters who qualify to receive FEMA Insurance and assistance. Of course, it is also important to remember our brothers and sisters in our prayers.- ROM. 12:12.
In 2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4, the Apostle Paul identified our great creator as "the God of all consolation, who comforts us in all our tests". the outpouring of material support, love , concern and prayers you offer are an extension of the love and spirit of the Lord in action, which has brought great comfort to thousands. Let us not fear or anxiety when we trust the Lord, who is strengthening and helping each and every one of those affected by these disasters "with [ His ] right to justice" (ISA. 41:10.).
With this letter, accept an expression of our warm Christian love and our best wishes.
Your Brothers,

– Translated

From what language is this letter translated from?  Phrases such as "continue to lead grazing " and "all of us can kill each other by" makes no sense. Help me out, please.

Hmmmm....  does anybody know how this SHOULD read ... I mean ... assuming its is in fact a typo?

In the face of overwhelming catastrophic events ........ grazing, and killing the sufferers is a hard but workable solution to the suffering and hardship.

I have seen my dogs eat grass, and had to have many of them over the years "put down" ( That means executed by a veterinarian, for those in Rio Linda ....), because of not being able to afford to fix their health problems.

And what language was it translated FROM?   Who issued this notice, and on what date?

Hmmmm....  does anybody know how this SHOULD read ... I mean ... what if it's NOT a "typo", or mistranslation.

This is a KEY POINT.

Without knowing what the original ACTUALLY, REALLY stated ... WE DON'T KNOW if it's a typo, or an insert, or a plan.

The predominant language in North America is English. This "letter" is in English.

Why the translation?

Was it translated from Pubspeak to Realspeak?  Spanish to English?

WHAT!?

      Soyons reconnaissant devant toutes ses oeuvres
       
      Le Dieu des dieux, Jéhovah, parle ;
      il convoque la terre
      depuis le soleil levant jusqu’au soleil couchant.
      De Sion, la perfection de la beauté, Dieu rayonne.
      Notre Dieu viendra et ne pourra pas garder le silence.
      Il y a un feu dévorant devant lui,
      et une violente tempête fait rage autour de lui.
      Il convoque les cieux et la terre
      pour juger son peuple :
       « Rassemblez auprès de moi mes fidèles,
      ceux qui concluent une alliance avec moi par un sacrifice. »
      Les cieux proclament sa justice,
      car Dieu lui-même est Juge. (Sèla.)
       « Écoute, ô mon peuple, je vais parler ;
      ô Israël, je vais témoigner contre toi.
      Je suis Dieu, ton Dieu.
      Ce n’est pas pour tes sacrifices que je te réprimande,
      ni pour tes holocaustes, qui sont constamment devant moi.
      Je n’ai pas besoin de prendre un taureau de ta maison
      ni des boucs de tes enclos.
      Car tous les animaux sauvages de la forêt m’appartiennent,
      même les bêtes sur mille montagnes.
      Je connais tous les oiseaux des montagnes;
      les innombrables animaux des champs sont à moi.
      Si j’avais faim, je ne te le dirais pas,
      car le sol productif m’appartient, avec tout ce qui s’y trouve.
      Vais-je manger la viande des taureaux
      et boire le sang des boucs?
      Offre en sacrifice à Dieu ta reconnaissance
      et acquitte-toi des vœux que tu as faits au Très-Haut;
      appelle-moi en temps de détresse.
      Je te secourrai, et tu me glorifieras. »
      Mais Dieu dira au méchant :
      « De quel droit récites-tu mes prescriptions
      ou parles-tu de mon alliance?
      Car tu détestes la discipline,
      et sans cesse tu tournes le dos à mes paroles.
      Quand tu vois un voleur, tu l’approuves,
      et tu fréquentes les personnes adultères.
      Avec ta bouche, tu répands le mal,
      et tu attaches la tromperie à ta langue.
      Tu t’assieds et tu parles contre ton frère;
      tu révèles les défauts du fils de ta propre mère.
      Quand tu faisais ces choses, je gardais le silence,
      alors tu t’es dit que j’étais comme toi.
      Mais, à présent, je vais te réprimander
      et exposer ce que j’ai contre toi.
      Réfléchissez à ceci, s’il vous plaît, vous qui oubliez Dieu,
      sinon je vous déchirerai et il n’y aura personne pour vous secourir.
      Celui qui offre en sacrifice sa reconnaissance me glorifie ;
      et à celui qui est déterminé à bien agir
      je ferai voir le salut de Dieu. »

      Dieu aime les prières et la sincérité de ses serviteurs humbles
       
      Dieu aime la bonté de coeur envers autrui et non aux sacrifices et holocaustes d'animaux sauvages et domistiques.
      Dans ton amour fidèle, accorde-moi ta faveur, ô Dieu.
      Dans ta grande miséricorde, efface mes transgressions.
      Lave-moi complètement de ma faute
      et purifie-moi de mon péché.
      Car je suis bien conscient de mes transgressions,
      et mon péché est constamment devant moi.
      C’est contre toi que j'ai failli, oui j'ai fait le mal
      devant tes yeux.
      Ainsi, tu es juste quand tu parles,
      tu es droit quand tu juges.
      Vois ! Je suis né coupable
      et, depuis l’instant où ma mère m’a conçu, je suis pécheur.
      Vois ! Tu prends plaisir à la vérité dans le fond du cœur;
      enseigne-moi la vraie sagesse, au plus profond de moi.
      Purifie-moi de mon péché avec l’hysope, pour que je sois pur;
      lave-moi, pour que je sois plus blanc que la neige.
      Fais-moi entendre le son de l’allégresse et de la joie,
      pour que les os que tu as broyés se réjouissent.
      Détourne ton visage de mes péchés
      et efface toutes mes fautes.
      Crée en moi un cœur pur, ô Dieu,
      et mets en moi un esprit nouveau, ferme.
      Ne me chasse pas de ta présence ;
      ne m’enlève pas ton esprit saint.
      Redonne-moi la joie d’être sauvé par toi;
      éveille en moi la volonté de t’obéir.
      Je veux enseigner tes chemins aux transgresseurs,
      pour que les pécheurs reviennent à toi.
      Libère-moi de la culpabilité de meurtre, ô Dieu, mon Dieu sauveur,
      pour que ma langue puisse proclamer joyeusement ta justice.
      Ô Jéhovah, ouvre mes lèvres
      pour que ma bouche proclame ta louange.
      Car tu ne veux pas de sacrifices — autrement, j’en donnerais ;
      tu ne prends pas plaisir aux holocaustes.
      Le sacrifice qui plaît à Dieu, c’est un esprit brisé ;
      un cœur brisé et broyé, ô Dieu, tu ne le rejetteras pas.
      Dans ta bienveillance, agis pour le bien de Sion ;
      bâtis les murailles de Jérusalem.
      Alors tu prendras plaisir aux sacrifices de justice,
      aux holocaustes et aux offrandes totales ;
      alors on offrira des taureaux sur ton autel.

      Hello to all my Spiritual Brothers and Sisters! I haven't been on here in a while, because as of August 17, 2021, I moved to Commerce, Texas! I was on the Commerce Housing Authority Waiting list since 2019!  I was selected to receive my one bedroom apartment, with my Chihuahua, with my precious Babyboy, who is now 16 years old! and I signed my lease on August 5, 2021, and had my gas turned on! We have a very small Congregation of 71 publishers, including me!  I haven't been to our beautiful Kingdomhall yet, but I did take some photos of the outside of it! I'm praying that we are one of the Congregations, chosen to start attending in person, our pilot meetings that many countries are now attending! Puerto Rico, Chile, and Australia are a few chosen right now! There's three Shirley's in my Congregation!  Two elderly sisters, one is white, she's No.1 , and another  elderly sister who is black, she's No.2, and I'm ShirleyL3!  One sister lovingly named me that! I feel special now! I haven't been given an assignment yet, but soon I will!  I really enjoyed our "POWERFUL by FAITH" Regional Convention so much!  We needed all the Spiritual Encouragement which focused on all of us! Also, all those beautiful videos, and the real life experiences! July 29, 1972, was my baptism date! 49 years now, serving Jehovah! I was 15 when I dedicated my life to serve Jehovah! I'm 64 years young now, and still faithfully serving Jehovah! I do telephone witnessing now! Which lots of people hang up on me, but I'm used to it now! All that matters is that I'm giving Jehovah my best!  I'm so excited about our Special Campaign now!  Only Jehovah reads hearts!  Hopefully lots of people will show some interest!  This year 2021 is almost over! I received both doses of Moderna, and have to wait till I turn 65 in May, to receive my Booster shot! We lost over 17, 000 brothers and sisters to Covid-19! My prayers are with them and their families! Soon, as Jehovah has promised, they will welcome their loved ones back in their lives, during the resurrection! I love it here so much, everyone is very friendly! I just love my Congregation too! I hope everyone makes their personal decision to get vaccinated! Also I hope everyone has a great rest of 2021! Let's see what Jehovah has in store for us in 2022! Were having our Circuit Assembly on November 27, 2021!  Take care of yourselves, be safe, and always trust in Jehovah!!!  Have a great weekend everybody, agape love, Sister Shirley Ann Lowery!
