Jehovah's Witnesses host district convention

Published:Saturday | July 9, 2011 | 12:00 AM


Many people around the world recite a prayer asking God's kingdom to come, yet they have little idea of what they are asking for.

The Jehovah's Witnesses say they will offer a clear and refreshing approach to the topic at their 2011 'Let God's Kingdom Come!' district convention.

The first of the two three-day events is scheduled to begin on Friday, July 8, at the Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium. The second series will continue on July 15.

For the past two weeks, Jehovah's Witnesses have been distributing printed invitations to persons in St Ann's Bay, Ocho Rios, Negril, and Lucea areas to attend.

At this year's convention, the Witnesses will feature an explanation of intriguing Bible prophecies related to God's Kingdom and how the Kingdom will bring permanent changes and blessings for those who love what is right.

The daily themes for the convention are based on passages of Scripture, including Matthew 4:17, Matthew 6:33 and Peter 1:11. The focus of the programme will be 'Strengthening one's faith in the reality of that Kingdom will'.


To Jehovah's Witnesses, the Kingdom is a real government that will soon take action in favour of those subjecting themselves to it and against those who refuse.

As part of the Sunday morning's programme, a discourse answering the question, 'Will Humans Ruin this Earth?' will be presented. It will show how this planet will soon be transformed into a paradise and how you and your family can qualify to live there.

The Jehovah's Witnesses are inviting everyone to attend and learn more about these topics. The programme sessions will begin at 9:20 a.m. for the convention days.

Admission is free, as conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
