Focus on families at Jehovah’s Witnesses convention
JEHOVAH’S Witnesses will, every weekend from this month to December 20, 2015, be featuring resources that assist families throughout Nigeria to be stronger and more united. This is a focus of their 2015 three-day yearly regional convention with the theme “Imitate Jesus!”
Currently going globally, the series of 259 conventions scheduled to hold at 29 locations in Nigeria will begin on Friday August 28. It will be presented in 17 Nigerian languages in addition to English, French and American Sign Language. The programme is scheduled to begin 8:20 am. daily.
According to the statement by the spokesman of Jehovah’s Witnesses Convention for Lagos and Ogun, Mr. Ademola Adeagbo, all is now set for the commencement of the three-day spiritually enlightening convention in four different locations in the states.
“Jesus, the founder of Christianity, is widely considered as one of the most influential and significant men who ever lived. As Christians, a core belief of Jehovah’s Witnesses is that Jesus lived his life as a model for us to follow. The ‘Imitate Jesus!’ convention will examine Jesus’ life, as outlined in the Bible, and emphasize how all—regardless of their background, lifestyle, or religion—can benefit in practical ways from his example and teachings. A highlight of the programme will be the keynote address on Friday morning, entitled ‘Concealed in Him Are All the Treasures of Wisdom,’” Adeagbo said.
The convention will begin in the Southwest (September 4-6) at Jehovah’s Witnesses assembly halls located at Ibereko Village, Badagry, Lagos and along Idi-Iroko Road, Ota, in Ogun State. Other locations hosting the convention in Lagos and Ogun states are Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at Daluwon, along Mowe-Ofada Road, Ogun State and the one at Ajibona Village, Lekki, Lagos.
