Jehovah’s Witnesses arrange campaign for hope
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Across the nation, there are over 13,000 Jehovah’s Witness congregations participating in the same campaign. This campaign is to spread hope.
Robert Hendriks, the U.S. Jehovah’s Witnesses spokesman, said they have a special edition of their magazine, Watchtower, out this month.
They are handing it out to government officials and local businesses. “People campaign every four years or every two years for a new leader. It’s all about the hope that that candidate can bring and we want true hope for lasting peace and satisfaction,” Hendriks said.
They are sending personal letters to government officials. “We would have loved to knock on their door or make an appointment with them, but at this time it’s not safe for them or us,” Hendriks said.
In this letter, they are expressing gratitude to these officials. “I always wonder who would go into these positions because it is often a thankless job. Many go into it because they want to affect change and do something good,” Hendriks said.
This campaign isn’t meant to recruit people to their congregation, but to share something that’s meaningful to them.
“It’s to raise awareness of God’s Kingdom and what they do with that is their business,” Hendriks said.
There are 26 congregations in Wyoming working on this campaign.
