A Campaign for the World's Most Translated Website
A Witness to God's Goodness
"Advertise, Advertise, the King and His Kingdom"
A century ago, these words were spoken by Brother Rutherford, as a source of inspiration for Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide. These powerful words are still the premise for a major work, accomplished by the witnesses, even today. For the month of August, some eight million #Jehovah's Witnesses, were inspired to promote throughout the world a "campaign to advertise the world's most translated website, jw.org," as expressed by the Office of Public Information, at the Watchtower Headquarters in New York. Millions of the Bible based tracts were placed entitled, Where Can We Find Answers to Life's Big Questions? To discover the answers to these vital questions that adversely affect us daily such as, "What is the meaning of life? Is God to blame for our suffering? and What happens when you die?" This inspirational Bible tract, directed its readers to #jw.org. This world renown website, has over one million visitors daily, by people from all walks of life, in search for scripturally based answers. JW.org is "accessible in about 500 languages, with publications available for download in almost 700 languages," as mentioned on the website.
In a world filled with racial prejudice, terrorism, violence, sickness and death, jw.org is a lifesaving tool. Geoffrey Jackson, a member of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses stated: "Since its launch two years ago, people all over the world have found jw.org to be an invaluable resource. On this site you can watch videos that can help your children, consult articles that can help your family, and even read the Bible online. We want as many as possible to benefit from jw.org, and that's why we initiated this special campaign."
During this special campaign for the website, thousands of spiritually adventurous Jehovah's Witnesses, served in designated territories that are "seldom worked." More than twenty five witnesses served in the stunning, picturesque area of North Conway, New Hampshire for a week. They were thrilled to work with their local brothers and sister of the Madison congregation. This created a resplendent combination of various races that served together within the community. Sheila, was one of the members within this group from Pennsylvania. She stated, "It was encouraging to see, how the local people responded to us as we offered this tract for the website. As a black woman, we saw very few in this area but the local people turned out to be very receptive of this good news. We had a wonderful time."
North Conway-Mount Washington Valley and nearby cities, are surrounded by spectacular mountains, covered with lush greenery during the summer months. This gave a whimsical hue from a distance, reflected toward the blue skies, orchestrated by puffy white clouds. Echo Lake State Park, with its infamous Cathedral Ledge, bedazzles its climbers with a spectacular view of the areas where, true beauty surround its homes. Magnificent trees and green grass, cover the land as unique dwellings unite and are nestled within these statuesque mountains. Such perfect beauty has been placed in its relative positions by our loving creator, Jehovah God. Isaiah 52:7 described one sister's sentiments regarding their privilege to talk with neighbors within these awe-inspiring mountains, "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the one bringing good news. The one proclaiming peace, The one bringing good news of something better, The one proclaiming salvation, The one saying to Zion: 'Your God has become King!"
Delicious Food and Good Association United All Races
Sumptuous dishes, were part of this experience in #New Hampshire. Fresh lobsters were served up with drawn butter at the Lobster Trap Restaurant. Delicious clam chowder, lobster pie and fresh salmon, were also enjoyed from the menu by witnesses from Pennsylvania. Caleb, served as their waiter. He is also an intern at the local observatory which is part of Mount Washington. Caleb, went on to explain why their lobster taste so fresh and delectable. He asked Chef Billy Cuccio, who has been a chef for more than thirty-two years. "We use natural salt from the ocean." Some of the visitors explained that the lobster was not only fresh but also sweet.
During the witnesses' visit to New Hampshire, they also experienced an abundance of love and association as they distributed hundreds of website tracts to the residents within the community. Some locals were amazed to see black and white brothers and sisters, sharing the good news about a world of peace, harmony and unity that will exist in the future. In the evening, after a day of witnessing, they would gather for home cooked meals at a beautiful house, rented by the witnesses for the week. Some days during the week, they visited local restaurants as well.
The day before their departure, a cookout was held by their local brothers and sisters of the Madison congregation. A delightful meal of surf and turf was served. Thick juicy steaks with whole fresh lobsters, were on the menu, along with fresh salads, corn on the cob and a variety of deserts were also lovingly served. In a world with so much racial hatred, terrorism and violence; these individuals of all races gathered together. They were thankful not only for a delicious meal but also for their loving, united brotherhood. A woman that was visiting the area from Canada, joined the witnesses during the cookout because she appreciated the unity of all races associating together. The woman had visited the area previously and never saw such unity of all races. Toward the end of the cookout, they all joined together for a unforgettable photograph.
A Good Work Was Accomplished
A week of momentous work had been accomplished by the Witnesses, in New Hampshire, as they featured the jw.org website tract. They climbed lush mountains, as magnificent scenery surrounded them. Vital spiritual food had reached the hearts of many. Succulent physical food had also been served. The good news of Jehovah God's kingdom had been shared in North Conway and the surrounding towns. One brother summed up their preaching activity and visit by stating, "This was one of the most beautiful areas we have visited and the people genuinely appreciated God's word. I look forward to returning when the trees change in later months."
This campaign to advertise the world's most widely translated website, jw.org was a complete success. Now more than one million visitors can continue to visit this site daily, in order to obtain answers to important questions they might have. This resourceful tool has proven to be a blessing to millions and this proves the goodness of our Grand Creator, Jehovah God.
