‘Remain Loyal to Jehovah’ regional convention set
Jehovah’s Witnesses are inviting the public to attend their 2016 “Remain Loyal to Jehovah!” Regional Conventions. Beginning in May 2016, the Witnesses will be hosting these free events in the United States and around the world.
The three-day program will feature 49 presentations, each exploring the theme “loyalty.” Additionally, the Witnesses have prepared 35 video segments specifically for the program plus two short films that will be shown on Saturday and Sunday. Each day, the morning and afternoon sessions will be introduced by music videos recorded for the convention.
As they have in years past, the Witnesses will distribute a special invitation to the public on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota welcoming them to attend the program. The dates for the local convention on Saipan will be from July 29 to 31 at the Royal Taga Hall, Saipan World Resort. The session begins each day at 9:20am. Admission is free to all and no collections are ever taken.
David A. Semonian, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses at their world headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, states: “We strongly believe that loyalty is an essential part of any healthy relationship. Our convention this year features content that will help people develop stronger bonds with friends, family members, and, above all, with God. We are confident that all who attend will enjoy this program.”
On a local note, Jehovah’s Witnesses have been on Saipan since 1962. Currently, there are three congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses on the island: two English and one Tagalog. There are also weekly meetings held in Chinese, Korean, and American Sign Language.
