Jehovah's Witnesses To Gather In Wainscott This Weekend

Publication: The East Hampton Press

Up to 1,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses hailing from communities all across Suffolk County will hold an assembly this weekend at East Hampton Studio on Industrial Road in Wainscott.

The assembly, which was slated to take place at the Sunnyside Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Queens on November 3 and 4, was cancelled because congregation members could not fuel their cars during the gas panic brought on by Hurricane Sandy. An assembly is comprised of about 10 to 12 congregations, and this particular assembly will include a Spanish-speaking congregation from Southampton, according to Tim Purscell, of Wheatley Heights, a press contact for the event.

Mr. Purscell said they’re expecting somewhere between 800 to 1,000 people to show up this weekend each day. “We’re hoping not to exceed a thousand,” he said.

The idea to host the event on the East End was spearheaded by Rory Hemby, an elder in the Southampton Spanish-speaking congregation, according to a press release. Michael Wudyka, owner of East Hampton Studio, rented it to the group at “a very reduced rate,” said Mr. Purscell.

The East Hampton Town Board approved a mass gathering permit for the event on Thursday. The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

“We have to thank many members of the community, for without their help, it would not have been possible,” Mr. Hemby said in the press statement. “The support we have received has been tremendous. Bruce from Outpost Porta-Potty, Elias Ramirez from Southampton Floors, Water Mill Building Supply, the East Hampton Town Board, the fire marshal and the police helped streamline the permitting process, and many others also helped. Everyone has been wonderful.”

Jehovahs Witnesses who are they?

A) They are at your door to recruit you for their watchtower society corporation,they will say that *we are just here to share a message from the Bible*... this is deception right off.
B) Their *message* creed is a false Gospel that Jesus had his second coming in 1914.The problem with this is it's not just a cute fairy tale,Jesus warned of the false prophets who would claim *..look he is here in the wilderness,or see here he is at the temple*.

If you really want to make an impact with Jehovah's Witnesses,just continue to love them. As frustrating as they can be sometimes, never allow yourself to become rude or angry with them. In that case it's better just to tell them to "have a nice day" and be done with it.You can pray for them later.

If you don't know the Bible well enough try to avoid sword fights but also let that be a call to get to know God's Word better for yourself.
Witnesses find it very hard to deal with and ...more
