JWs launched a “A Better World Is Near” campaign
Expect Jehovah’s Witnesses (JWs) to call you at home or at your workplace to encourage you to stay positive because the future is bright.
Since Nov. 1, more than 200,000 JW members in the country have been sharing comforting Bible passages to their neighbors as part of their monthlong special campaign with the theme “A Better World Is Near,” according to Leynard Rodulfa, spokesperson for the JWs in the country.
The Philippines is one of the 240 countries that is participating in the campaign, he said.
But they won’t knock at your doors yet because the Covid-19 virus remains a threat. Instead, they will dial your number and ask permission to talk about the Bible for a few minutes.
They might talk about how God will end this pandemic or the Bible’s promise for a perfect health, real peace and security and healthy environment, Rodulfa said.
If the person is interested to know more, a JW volunteer will send him the digital or printed copy of a special issue of the magazine entitled “A Better World Is Near.”
Rodulfa said more than 36 million printed copies of the magazine will be distributed in some 230 languages to communities in 240 lands around the globe. The digital publication is available on various platforms in nearly 400 languages.
“We are happy to share our special issue to all people regardless of their faith. They can also request for a free interactive Bible lesson through jw.org,” Rodulfa said.
He, however, reassured the public that no personal or sensitive information is collected when visitors access their website. Gobleth Moulic, contributor
