Testigos de Jehová voluntarios socorren a víctimas del huracán

Recommended Posts

Un grupo de voluntarios de la organización mundial de los testigos de Jehová trabajó arduamente en Puerto Rico para atender la situación de emergencia que dejó el huracán María en la isla.

Según un comunicado de prensa, esta organización estableció 10 centros alrededor de la isla para distribuir ayuda humanitaria y coordinar labores de reparación y reconstrucción de casas.

“Hasta el momento, se han reparado aproximadamente unos 1,200 hogares y se estabilizó a más de 3,000”, lee el documento.

      El gobernador Ricardo Rosselló Nevares emitió hoy un veto expreso a la medida de la Cámara conocida como el proyecto de libertad religiosa. 
      Reacciona el presidente de la Cámara
      Méndez dijo esta tarde que el gobernador fue inducido a error y por eso fue que vetó el llamado proyecto de Libertad Religiosa. 
      "Respeto el poder constitucional del gobernador, pero creo que lo indujeron a error las personas que le recomendaron el veto. El proyecto buscaba proteger el derecho que ha sido refrendado por legislación federal y las decisiones del Tribunal Supremo en términos de que nadie puede discriminar contra nadie", dijo Méndez en entrevista con El Nuevo Día.
      Méndez mencionó jurisprudencia que protege a "sectas", en referencia a los Testigos de Jehová, que "pueden entrar a un lugar donde el Estado o asociaciones les han prohibido entrar".
      ¿Irán por encima del veto?, se le preguntó.
      "Ese análisis lo vamos hacer y lo de nosotros es sencillamente que la política pública del estado es defender la libertad de las personas, expreearse sin afectar los derechos de los demás", respondió.

      ZAMBOANGA, Filipinas (AP) — Inundaciones repentinas y deslaves desencadenadas por una tormenta tropical en el sur de Filipinas arrasaron con personas y casas, provocando al menos 120 personas muertas y otras 160 desaparecidas en plena temporada de desplazamientos por viajes y preparativos navideños, informaron las autoridades el sábado.
      La mayoría de las muertes causadas por la tormenta tropical Tembin se produjeron en las provincias de Lanao del Norte y Lanao del Sur y en la península de Zamboanga, según un informe inicial del gobierno sobre las víctimas.

      It was a transaction concocted on Twitter — and in a few short weeks, declared official: Tesla is helping to bring power back to Puerto Rico.
      Early this month, Elon Musk touted his company’s work building solar-plus-battery systems for small islands like Kauai in Hawaii and Ta’u in American Samoa. He suggested a similar setup could work for Puerto Rico. The U.S. territory’s governor, Ricardo Rosselló, tweeted that he was game. Musk replied quickly: “Hopefully, Tesla can be helpful.”
      After earlier reports of the company’s batteries arriving at San Juan’s port, Tesla announced today that it has started constructing its first microgrid installation, laying out a solar field and setting up its refrigerator-sized Powerpack batteries to supply electricity to a children’s hospital in the Puerto Rican capital.

      Puerto Rico remains largely without electricity after hurricane Maria ripped through the island and destroyed much of its electricity grid. With rebuilding efforts underway from both non-profits and governmental aid, the U.S. territory has been able to reactivate just over 12% of the electricity grid and expects 25% of the grid to be online in the next month. Reconstruction of transmission lines and electrical infrastructure is expected to cost upwards of $5 billion, according to Ricardo Ramos, chief executive of Puerto Rico’s Electric Power Authority. With a public utility service that’s strapped in massive debt and linked to a
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. , major funding for the crucial project to rebuild remains largely unknown. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Concept image of Tesla’s scalable battery storage solutions (Photo: Tesla)
      While the U.S. government has failed to help restore power on the island, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is up for the challenge. In response to a question that asked if the billionaire entrepreneur would be able to restore power to Puerto Rico using independent solar and battery systems, Musk said, “The Tesla team has done this for many smaller islands around the world, but there is no scalability limit, so it can be done for Puerto Rico too. Such a decision would be in the hands of the PR govt, PUC, any commercial stakeholders and, most importantly, the people of PR.”
      This caught the eye of Puerto Rico Governor, Ricardo Rossello, who suggested that the island could become Tesla Energy’s flagship project.
      With 3.4 million residents on the island that use roughly 19 billion kWh of energy per year (19 million MWh), or an average of 5,310 kWh (5.2 MWh) per capita, building a Tesla solar and battery solution to meet some of the island’s needs will easily exceed the complexity and cost of Tesla’s existing massive battery project in Australia.
      The Tesla Solution
      According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Puerto Rico consumes 19 billion kWh of electricity per year with 96.4% of it being produced by fossil fuel generators. The other 3.6% is from renewable energy sources.
      For the sake of coming up with some hypotheticals, let’s assume that Puerto Rico transitions at least 40% of its power generation to solar energy. To meet that goal, Tesla would need to install a 4,164 MW solar system (factoring in available sun hours), or roughly 5.2% of total global solar deployments in 2017, which is about 320 times larger than the solar plant that Tesla built in Kauai.

      While it’s difficult to calculate the exact cost of a project of this caliber, we can still make some general estimates that are based on comparable projects and standard rates. In
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. that its installation costs, excluding marketing and general administrative costs, were approximately $2 per watt-hour. Based on this assumption, a solar system for Puerto Rico could cost upwards of $8.32 billion. Tesla would also be installing batteries to help balance the solar power generation and stabilize the grid. A Tesla battery storage solution in Puerto Rico of this size would far exceed the company’s existing “world’s largest lithium-ion battery” project in South Australia. Tesla would likely need a 5,000 MWh (5,000,000 kWh) battery system to support the installed solar.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . For a project of this size, Puerto Rico would be buying $1.25B worth of batteries from Tesla. To put the size of the project in perspective, it’s worth noting that Tesla’s solar division (formally SolarCity) installed nearly 900 MWh of solar in 2016 and nearly 2,400 MWh over its history. The company is also expanding both solar and battery production at Gigafactory 1 and 2, both of which will help reduce costs over time as economies of scale are realized.
      The real cost…
      While projects as large as a proposed Tesla solution in Puerto Rico may seem incredibly expensive at first, it’s important to look at them with the right lens. Right now, households in the region pay $.198 per kWh, over 50% higher than the US average.
      The total cost of solar and batteries would be $9.58B and would supply 40% of the island’s energy for decades. With Puerto Rico’s poor credit rating and high debt, financing this project won’t come easy, nor cheap. Factoring in a presumed 7% interest rate and the total project cost would exceed $21B over 20 years. In exchange, households would see a price drop in cost per kilowatt-hour to around $.112, as Puerto Rico transitions to a cleaner energy source with a more stable grid.
      This project would clearly require a substantial investment in money and labor, something Musk doubters would find too large of scale for the company to tackle. But then again, when compared to building a network of massive rockets that would transport people across the world and eventually to Mars, a large-scale battery and solar system doesn’t seem all that difficult.

      Sismos, huracanes y eclipses, acercan más a los creyentes a iglesias y templos, pues algunos consideran que son señales de los últimos días.
      Por miedo  o fe, ciudadanos choapenses se han apegado más a la religión que profesan, aseguran dirigentes religiosos de este municipio, quienes coinciden en que los fenómenos que han acontecido han incrementado el fervor religioso.
      Abiud Galdámez Rodríguez, anciano de los Testigos de Jehová, dijo que este acercamiento en su comunidad religiosa no es masivo, pero los sucesos acontecidos sí han removido la conciencia en algunas personas y se refleja al momento en que acuden a las viviendas predicando el mensaje de Dios.
      “Se acercan más a Dios, por miedo o por fe; hay quienes ahorita buscan el acercamiento con estas situaciones; hay un poco más de concientización, lo vemos como algo de lo que ya nos habla la biblia, sucesos que se tienen que cumplir”, explicó  Galdámez Rodríguez.
      Agregó que algunas personas ven más cerca el fin del mundo, y muchos aceptan que es el momento de acudir a Dios, “cuando predicamos lo hemos observado en algunas personas”, expresó el creyente.
      “Hay que escuchar el mensaje, y nuestro propósito de evangelización es que las personas lleguen a ver la importancia de leer la biblia, porque es la mejor manera de acercarnos a Dios; muchos se sorprenden cuanto comparan la biblia con sus creencia y cambian de religión, entonces esos son nuestros propósitos, al predicar ir leyendo lo que la palabra de Dios dice”, detalló.
      Raquel Rocha Delgadillo, Pastora del Centro Cristiano “Senda de Vida”, coincidió sobre el tema, “ahora en este tiempo hemos visto que la gente pregunta más sobre lo que está pasando y de lo que está escrito en la palabra y nos damos a la tarea de predicar el mensaje de Jesús sobre rumores de guerra, terremotos y señales  que anuncian su llegada”.
      Explicó que hay gente que tiene temor y cuando se les predica el temor se les disipa y hay una confianza más, “hay que aprender, buscar a Dios para que los temores queden desvanecidos por el poder de la palabra y la confianza que Dios da teniendo Fe en el señor”.

      President Trump sent Puerto Rican bonds

      Two questions we have about Trump’s remarks: 1) If he is serious, could he do this? and 2) What are the chances it’ll happen? 
      1) Trump can’t wave his hand and make over $70 billion in debt disappear…he’ll need help from bankruptcy courts.

      Impact of Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico, public power supply devastated
      PUERTO RICO – Besides injury, not one of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Puerto Rico were affected by what has been described as the most devastating Hurricane in the history of the Carribean.
      Hurricane Maria which made land fall in Puerto Rico as a category 4 storm killed 16 people, Governor Ricardo Rosello of Puerto Rico has said. The hurricane disrupted communication and power supply, effectively cutting off Puerto Rico from civilisation.
      Insured loses is currently put at about $40 to $85 billion. But despite this devastation, Jehovah, their God preserved his people alive. Only one person was injured, the JWs said inna statement.
      “As of September 25, 2017, information from 15 of the 19 circuit overseers in Puerto Rico has been received and only one injury has been reported among our brothers as a result of Hurricane Maria.
      “We have yet to receive updates from the four circuit overseers on the west side of the island, since communication has not been possible. Brothers from nearby circuits have been acquiring motorbikes and all-terrain vehicles in order to travel to the west side to assess the situation”, they said, adding “We continue to keep our dear brothers and sisters in our prayers.—James 5:16”.

      For today, 25 September 2017, information is already available from 15 of the 19 circuit superintendents serving in Puerto Rico. It was reported that there was only one person injured because of hurricane Maria. We are still waiting for news of the four circuit superintendents on the west side of the island as it has not been possible to communicate with them. Nearby circuit brothers have achieved motorcycles and SUV vehicles to visit the west area and learn more.
      We continue to pray for our brothers (Santiago 5:16).

    • Let reminds population how WT magazine explain some ideas? :))) STUDY ARTICLES FOR: FEBRUARY 29–APRIL 3, 2016 The Spirit Bears Witness With Our Spirit HAVE YOU BEEN CALLED? 15 Perhaps you are wondering if you have received this wonderful invitation. If you think that you might have, ponder some important questions. Do you feel that you have more than average zeal in the ministry? Are you a keen student of God’s Word who loves to delve into “the deep things of God”? (1 Cor. 2:10) Have you seen Jehovah’s special blessing on your ministry? Do you have a burning desire to do Jehovah’s will? Do you have a deep inner feeling of responsibility to help others spiritually? Have you seen proof that Jehovah has personally intervened in your life? If you answer these questions with a resounding yes, does this mean that you now have the heavenly calling? No, it does not. Why not? Because these are not unique feelings experienced only by those who have the heavenly calling. Jehovah’s spirit works with equal force in those who have the hope of living forever on earth. In fact, if you are wondering whether you have received the heavenly calling,that would in itself indicate that you have not received it. Those called by Jehovah do not wonder whether they have been invited or not! They know!  15. What does not prove that a person has been anointed by holy spirit? WHAT ABOUT THE NUMBER OF THOSE PARTAKING AT THE MEMORIAL? 12 In recent years, we have seen an increase in the number of those partaking at the Memorial of Christ’s death. That trend contrasts with the decrease in the number of partakers that we saw for many decades. Should this increase trouble us? No. Let us consider some key factors to keep in mind. 13 “Jehovah knows those who belong to him.” (2 Tim. 2:19) Those taking the count at the Memorial cannot judge who truly have the heavenly hope. The number of partakers includes those who mistakenly think that they are anointed. Some who at one point started to partake of the emblems later stopped. Others may have mental or emotional problems that lead them to believe that they will rule with Christ in heaven. Therefore,the number of partakers does not accurately indicate the number of anointed ones left on earth. 14 Anointed ones will be present in many parts of the earth when Jesus comes to gather them to heaven. Speaking of that time, the Bible says regarding Jesus: “He will send out his angels with a great trumpet sound, and they will gather his chosen ones together from the four winds, from one extremity of the heavens to their other extremity.” (Matt. 24:31) The Scriptures do indicate that only a remnant of the anointed ones will be left on earth during the last days. (Rev. 12:17) However, the Bible does not state how many will be left at the time that the great tribulation begins. 15 Jehovah chooses when in history he will select anointed ones. (Rom. 8:28-30) Jehovah began choosing anointed ones after Jesus’ death and resurrection, and it seems that all in the first-century Christian congregation were anointed. From the first century until the beginning of the last days, the vast majority of those who claimed to follow Christ were false Christians; Jesus likened them to “weeds.” Even so, Jehovah continued to anoint some faithful ones throughout that time, and they proved to be like the “wheat” Jesus described. (Matt. 13:24- 30) During the last days, Jehovah has continued to select those who will make up the 144,000.[2] If he chooses to wait until late into that period to select some for that privilege, who are we to question his wisdom? (Isa. 45:9; Dan. 4:35; read Romans 9:11, 16.)[3] We must be careful not to react like the disgruntled workers who complained about the way their master dealt with the 11th-hour workers.—Read Matthew 20:8-15. 12, 13. Why should we not worry about the number of those who eat the bread and drink the wine at the Memorial? Well, after reading those significant sentences in article and this one again; "The number of partakers includes those who mistakenly think that they are anointed. Some who at one point started to partake of the emblems later stopped. Others may have mental or emotional problems that lead them to believe that they will rule with Christ in heaven." ................. it is not strange that some can ask himself, "What sort of anointed are leaders in GB for all JW members?"
