Where Hospitality Is Shown to Strangers
In September 1994, a man from Michigan, U.S.A., wrote to the congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Lebanon, Tennessee. He explained:
“Back on Sunday, June 6, 1993, I attended your public talk and Watchtower Study. It was the first time I had ever entered a Kingdom Hall, and I was really impressed by all the smiling faces and the sincere love I was shown. I arrived a few minutes late, and when admitted, I seated myself alone. A young couple in the same row lent me a Bible and eventually a copy of the Watchtower magazine for the study.
“After the meetings most of you talked with me, shook hands, and made my stay a very pleasant experience. When I finally left your Kingdom Hall, I took three books with me—the Bible, The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived, and You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth. That night I read most of the Live Forever book, and I learned a new name for my God, Jehovah. . . .
“I want all of you to know how much I appreciated your wonderful hospitality to a total stranger and especially want you to know that . . . I was baptized on July 9, 1994, at the tender age of 70.”
