BAATSONA — Jehovah’s Witnesses feel that all, including non-Witnesses, will benefit from the positive message and practical suggestions that will be highlighted at the 2012 “Safeguard Your Heart!” District Convention to be held at “Baatsona Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses”.
The Witnesses’ convention program promises a fresh examination of Biblical references to the figurative heart. Through lively discourses, dramatic Bible readings and presentations, and even a live play, program parts will emphasize how protecting the figurative heart will enhance one’s spiritual well-being, family life, and happiness.
Starting this weekend, and continuing for the next 11 weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses will put forth extra effort to extend a personal invitation to everyone from Accra, Tema, and surrounding areas to attend the convention with them.
The first of 11 three-day events to be held in Baatsona will begin Friday, October 5, 2012, at 9:20 a.m. The daily themes and titles of program parts are based on passages of Scripture, including 1 Samuel 16:7, 1 Chronicles 28:9, and Matthew 12:34. The convention theme “Safeguard Your Heart!” is based on Proverbs 4: 23. Strengthening one’s spirituality will be the focus of the program.
There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
Locally, all of the area’s 293 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be supporting the activity of distributing printed invitations to the convention.
An estimated 40,000 will come to Accra Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at Baatsona over 11 successive weekends for the Bible-based programs.
Throughout Ghana, there will be 96 conventions in 27 cities. Worldwide, there are over 7,600,000 Witnesses in more than 109,000 congregations.
