Jehovah Witnesses focus on loyalty for 2016 conventions

2016-08-31 06:00

ON Friday, 20 May Jehovah’s Witnesses started hosting their 2016 “Remain Loyal to Jehovah!” regional conventions in the United States and around the world.

In KwaZulu-Natal over 35 000 delegates of Jehovah’s Witnesses, including their families and neighbours of all races, are expected to attend the three-day convention at the Moses Mabhida Stadium­ from 9 to 11 September.

The programme will be delivered in English­, Zulu and sign language simultaneously.

The three-day programme will feature 49 presentations, each exploring the theme “loyalty”.

Additionally, the Witnesses have prepared 35 video segments specifically for the programme, plus two short films that will be shown on Saturday and Sunday.

Each day, the morning and afternoon sessions will be introduced by music videos recorded for the convention.

As they have in years past, the Witnesses will distribute a special invitation starting on 18 August to the public welcoming them to attend the programme.

The event is free and no collections are taken.

Trevor Lee, programme overseer for Durban convention says: “We believe that loyalty is an essential part of any healthy relationship.

“Our convention this year features content­ that will help people develop stronger bonds with friends, family members and, above all, with God.

“We are confident that all who attend will enjoy this programme.”
