MetroWest Volunteers Launch Global Campaign Offering Message of Hope
MetroWest – At a time when the desire for better government is on the minds of people the world over, Jehovah’s Witnesses will launch an international campaign to bring attention to a universal solution. The Witnesses will feature a special edition of “The Watchtower” magazine, available in over 780 languages in print and online, with the theme “What Is God’s Kingdom?”
Local volunteers from the MetroWest area will distribute this special-edition magazine during the month of September.
As an elementary school teacher, Sophilia LeBlanc is excited to take part of this campaign in her community. “The topic of better government is timely because government affects healthcare, safety, employment, and even the environment. Now more than ever people can see that governments are not providing their citizens with all that they need in these areas,” said Sophilia, a resident of Franklin. “I am excited to share in the campaign and to talk to people in-person about their concerns and to share God’s promise for a government that will benefit all people.”
Throughout the centuries, millions of Jesus’ followers have prayed the words “thy Kingdom come” but wonder what that Kingdom is, what it will accomplish, and when it will come. To answer those age-old questions, the Witnesses’ special-edition magazine will reference key Bible passages. The clear and simple explanations have been designed to appeal to both new and experienced Bible readers.
“It comes to no surprise that people are continuously looking for a better government, yet they only find more insecurities and frustrations,” said Pedro Capunay, spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “We are excited to be involved in a special campaign outreach to share the Bible’s message of hope with our communities. A hope that involves God’s Kingdom, the only true universal solution.”
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jehovah’s Witnesses distributed millions of this special-edition magazine through letters, even sending copies to thousands of government officials worldwide. Now that they have returned to their door-to-door public ministry post-pandemic, this will be the first in-person campaign where they will have the opportunity to discuss the important and very timely subject with their neighbors.
A free digital copy of this special issue of “The Watchtower,” as well as information about the activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses, is available at jw.org. The Witnesses’ site offers practical Bible-based content for people of all ages and beliefs in over 1,070 languages.
