The campaign, which will run for three weeks, will continue up to the convention, which is expected to take place from July 19 to 21 at the Arnos Vale Netball Complex.

The Witnesses will be striving to reach as many homes as possible to provide a personal invitation to this event. This year’s convention theme is “God’s Word Is Truth!” This series of conventions began in the United States in May and will continue worldwide through the end of December.

According to a release from the organizers, the convention theme this year is significant because it underscores a core family value for Jehovah’s Witnesses, who embrace the Bible as the most trustworthy guide and source of advice in these troubled times.

“We feel that the public will likewise benefit from and enjoy the varied and practical programme,” the release said.

“Personal Bible study is a priority for Jehovah’s Witnesses. Each week, Witness families devote an entire evening to Bible study and research, which they call “Family Worship. The convention this year will provide families and individuals with fresh new resources for family and personal Bible study,” the release said.
