This experience happened to me recently.
I was working with our c/o’s wife in the ministry. Our discussion between doors was about conducting bible studies with people older than we are. I mentioned the fact that I had never had a study with anyone, and that I feel that people would need someone who has more life experience and bible knowledge than me to study with them. This sister spoke to me about Timothy, and how he was used to help people despite his young age. She then went on to jokingly say that the next door I went to would have an elderly lady who has been looking for someone to help her understand a deep bible book like Ezekiel or Revelation.
I went to the next door and there was a 82 year old lady who asked me to wait while she got something to show me. She came back with a red book and said her grandson found it one day and gave it to her. She’d tried reading it but couldn’t understand it. She asked if I’d be willing to help her. It was the Revelation book. We now meet once a week, and discuss some of this book before moving on to the Bible Teach book.
There’s a small group of us wanting to visit the U.S within the next couple of years to see the headquarters, Patterson and Wallkill. We’ve found somewhere called the Harvest Inn in Pine Bush, N.Y. and the reviews imply that this hotel is run by witnesses.
Has anyone been there before, and know if this is true or not?
Yes. I have stayed there a couple times before. Think of it similar to a hostel and very close to Wallkill.
@nanny_n_papa tells us: “This is a unique form of witnessing we do in the English speaking field here in Ecuador. We call it “Incognito Witnessing”. We dress in street clothes and try to start up friendly conversations in a way that keeps the householder at ease. Then try and see if we can turn the conversation into a spiritual one. We met this man at Plaza de Ponchos in Otavalo. It’s the famous artisan market. He sells artwork. I spent some time trying to bargain with him. After which I offered him the campaign tract. His response? “I need something like this!” My partner was then able to show him the “why study the bible” video which you see here. Notice how intently he is watching. I’m always amazed at the response here in Ecuador!”
