PORT Elizabeth-based Jehovah’s Witnesses will be among the anticipated 8 000 delegates attending the three-day annual convention which will be held between Friday and Sunday this week, starting at 9:20am each day, under the theme “Don’t Give Up!” The programme will be held at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, as well as at selected venues around the world. In South Africa, a total turnout of around 220 000 is expected at 70 conventions to be presented in 20 languages.As in previous years, the Witnesses will also be participating in a global campaign to personally invite the general public to attend. With close to 13 million in attendance at the conventions last year worldwide, the congregation is hoping for an even larger audience this year.The programme is divided into 52 parts and will be presented in a variety of formats, including brief discourses, interviews and videos. Additionally, one segment of a three-part feature film, entitled Remember the Wife of Lot”, will be shown each afternoon. Large LED screens erected at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium will enable those in the audience to enjoy the programme in their preferred language, whether English, isiXhosa, Afrikaans or sign language.For more information contact Lindsay Christison on 073 290 2830.
