We have been blessed to have the District Convention in our city for the last two years (Pueblo, CO). It sure is nice to be able to break up the weekends. I have a hard time sitting still for 8 hours for 3 days in a row, without getting up an lot.

So, I went to a weekend in May, our weekend was in July, and then a weekend in August.

Of course, all of the news stories have been very positive about us (not surprising) so I'm hoping we get to keep the location for a long time.

Self-control is like a muscle; the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

Hi Brothers & Sisters!
I am new to sparkpeople. I haven't got all of the info on how to do all of the diet stuff yet, but I'll work on it slowly. Looks like y'all are doing great at weight loss. I have been a witness 11 years now in Oklahoma, USA. My convention will be held at the end of August in Tulsa, Oklahoma. There is usually about 7,000 there. I went to the one in Fort Worth, Texas last month with my twin sister. I love the worldwide brotherhood! Keep in touch. emoticon

Kizzie will you keep your mom and your family in our prayers. So nice that your dad is going to have a part on the convention. My husband is going to have a part Saturday Morning. He's part of a demonstration that will be an Elder helping a Student. My husbands going to be the student. That's all the details he'll give me. LOL.

Thanks for sharing Nick. I got shivers when I read the comment about being in the final moments! Our DC is fast approaching and I can't wait! My dad is a bit meloncholoy because he has a part in a symposium on Sunday and my mom won't be able to make it because she is still in the nursing home recovering from surgery on her back and she has to have surgery on her colon in a week. I'm praying that if it is Jehovah's will she can be good enough to make it to the convention. But we'll see. Doctors say it's about 2-3 months in the home for her right now.

Sweet and sassy

My family all had thier s.a.d this weekend so my husband and i made the 6 hr. drive to attend. My 2 brothers and their roommate (whom they've been best friends with since grade 3) all got baptized this weekend. It was so fantastic. Besides them their were 5 others baptized. The youngest was 10 and the oldest in his 70's. Also a sister from my mom's congregation who was formerly a muslim was baptized as well. Just incredible. Gave me shivers when a brother from the Canadian Bethel here gave a talk and said " Brothers and Sisters were not in the final days of this system....we're in the final moments!" Incredible.

We will have this same program here coming this Sunday and I look forward to hearing it all over again.

We had our SAD in Kennewick WA this last month. It was the first time there. That's where we have our DA's. We have our CA's in Pendleton, OR. That is where we usually have our SAD's. Our's was on Saturday the day befor the Special letter was read about the change in the Meetings. It was a shock. The Faithful and Discreet Class are definately preparing us for the time of the end. We weren't allowed to tell anyone outside our own Congregation about the Changes until everyone else got he letter the next day. My husband and I both have to sit out in the Van for all the Assemblies as I have severe Chemical Allergie and my Heart and Lungs start shutting down when I get even a whiff of perfumes. My husband was born without an upper respitory immune system for colds and flu so someone coughing, sneezing or shaking his hand can give him pneumonia within days if he isn't careful. But at least we get them on the radio. That's how he gets the meetings and I have my own room with 2 air purifiers at the Hall. I still get extrememly sick though because my ventilation system is tied in with the second school, Elders room and bathrooms so I get all the perfume dumped in on my head. We really need the new order and soon.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Good morning

I have the new DC notebook for any one that may be interested. You email me your email addresses. then i will send it to you.

I see you all have been to the assemblies. It is so encouraging to see that the same assembly is being held over the whole world. In South Africa we have the same information. We truly are united. We are really being prepared for the new order. The same letter was read by us on the same day as you. About the new Bible Studies from January 2009. We are being looked after by the slave class.
See you again
Ellrina

The meeting took two hours and there were 13.332 people attending. It was great to see so many people together. They came from all over Romania. Some of them travelled twelve hours to be there, and the same as they went back home. I only traveled six hours to go and six back.
Two brothers spoke. David Mercante spoke about being thankful to Jehovah for his organisation, and Anthony Moris about how we can continue to persevere in the good work. It was really amazing.

Kizzie...this IS a weight loss topic, because I plan to lose 30 pounds by our DC in July (also in Toledo)!

A setback doesn't have to set you back.

For bodily training is beneficial for a little; but godly devotion is beneficial for all things, as it holds promise of the life now and that which is to come. (1 Timothy 4:8)

The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it. (Psalm 37:29)

“Happy are the mild-tempered ones, since they will inherit the earth." (Matthew 5:5)

Hey brothers and sisters. This is not weightloss related, but I thought it may be a nice thing to talk about.

So when is everyone's "dates"? We already had our 2 day assembly last year. This Saturday (April 5) is our special assembly day. And our District Convention is June 20-22. We meet in Toledo, OH. We used to meet at the Pontiac Silverdome for years (from 1979-2004).

And since our SAD is this weekend, we have to wait til the following Sunday (April 12) for our special talk.

Sweet and sassy
