Jehovah’s Witnesses Resume Door-Do-Door Preaching
No fewer than 400,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses in Nigeria are joining millions of their brothers across the world to resume their well-known door-to-door ministry today, September 1, 2022 after a long break occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic.
It would be recalled that the door to door ministry, including other forms of in- person preaching were suspended by Jehovah’s Witnesses around the globe since March 2019 following the deadly scourge of the Covid- 19 disease .
In a statement by Olusegun Eroyemi, the Nigeria spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses, a copy made available to newsmen in Ibadan, the resumption of the door to door ministry will be marked by a special global campaign launched to offer members of the public a free interactive Bible course.
“We can’t wait to bring our Bible based message of hope to our neighbours once again.
“As global crises escalate on all fronts it is a huge privilege to bring real smiles on the faces of our friends in person,” Eroyemi said.
He noted that Witnesses conducted an average of five million Bible courses around the globe during each month of last year.
The program , he further explained , offers a practical way to learn what the Bible teaches on a variety of subjects, such as how to find happiness, why there is so much evil and suffering in the world, and what the Bible promises for the future.
According to him, participating in the interactive Bible course with Jehovah’s Witnesses comes without any obligation.
” The Witnesses simply present what the Bible teaches and allow each person to determine their own personal beliefs and life choices.
“The main textbook for the study is the Bible itself. Each lesson is designed to be covered in one hour”, he stressed .
