Jehovah’s Witnesses begin 2018 convention
The convention, which has as theme, “Be Courageous!” will be held almost every weekend from Friday, August 3, to Sunday, December 23.
A statement signed by a spokesman of Jehovah’s Witnesses, George Ijeh, noted that the convention will help attendees to face the daunting challenges individuals, families and the society at large face today with God-given courage.
“When you look at the news today, you can clearly see that people of all ages are dealing with more anxieties and fears than ever before.
It takes courage to face these pressures.
We welcome everyone to this year’s convention to benefit from the practical advice contained in the Bible,” Ijeh said.
He explained that the three-day programme consists of 54 presentations, including talks, audio dramas, interviews and short videos.
Highlights, according to the statement, include the baptism of new members who have completed a Bible Study programme on Saturday morning and a Public Discourse on Sunday morning, on the theme: “The Resurrection Hope Imparts Courage—How?”
Additionally, a feature film entitled: “The Story of Jonah—A Lesson in Courage and Mercy”, will be shown on the final day of the convention programme. “In all, there will be 308 conventions in Nigeria.
The programme commences 8:20 a.m. each day of the convention, closing at 3:50 p.m., except on Sunday, when it closes at 2:45 p.m.
“The convention begins in the Lagos-Ogun area from August 31 and will hold at the Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses located along Idiroko Road, Ota; Daluwon along Mowe-Ofada Road; Lekki at Ajibona Village; and Badagry, at 5, Assembly Road, Itoga, opposite Limca bus stop”, Ijeh said.
