Witnesses deliverance at hand


Starting this weekend and continuing over the next three weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses will launch an intensive campaign to extend a personal invitation to everyone to attend the 2006 “Deliverance at Hand!” District Convention.

The Witnesses want to provide each household with the specially-printed invitation that provides information about the three-day event being held at Victoria Park beginning Friday, July 28, 2006, at 9:30 a.m. Admission to the convention is free and no collections will be taken.{{more}}

This massive volunteer effort to invite people to this and similar conventions will take place not only in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, but around the world.

Why the concerted global effort to advertise the convention this year? The Witnesses believe that mankind sorely needs deliverance from the problems of inherited sin and its consequence, death. They feel that only God can bring about that kind of deliverance. The program will examine Jesus’ role in delivering mankind and will review various Bible accounts of deliverance.

There will also be special focus on passages describing the hope of survival during God’s fast-approaching day of reckoning.

Over 98,000 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide will share in advertising their local convention with the special invitations.
