Jehovah’s Witnesses invites English speakers to convention

Jehovah’s Witnesses  has issued a general invitation for English speakers to attend the district convention starting Sept, 20 in  Asuncion de Belén.

The program will answer the following questions:  What is the truth?  Where to find truth?  How can truth benefit you and your family?  Two live stage plays will highlight the lessons that can be learned from Bible accounts, the organization said.

Starting this weekend, the 14 English congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses located throughout Costa Rica,will make a special effort to deliver an invitation to all English-speaking persons in the country.  All are invited for the three days.

The convention starts on Friday, Sept. 20,  at 9:20 a.m.  Each day has its own biblical theme:  “The Truth Will Set You Free,” “I Shall Walk in Your Truth” and “Firmly Set in the Truth,” said the organization in a release.

The talks will be based on biblical texts and they will follow the convention theme, “The word of God is truth,” taken from John 17:17, said the organization, adding that admission is free.

Jehovah’s Witnesses estimates that 600 English speaking people will attend this convention at the Central Valley Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.  The hall is  behind the Lizano factory.

More information is available from Joseph Piccolo at or by telephone:  4034-5639. Information also is available at the convention Web site.

Similar conventions will be held in Spanish on 13 occasions in six different cities, including one in sign language, said the organization.
