Jehovah’s Witnesses are holding a three-day convention in more than 70 areas in the country entitled “Don’t Give Up!”
The lectures, which are based in the Bible, are designed to help the people endure despite prolonged illness, depression, loss of a loved one, unjust treatment, persecution, and other personal problems, according to Danilo Calso, convention spokesperson of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Philippines.
Calso said there will be multimedia presentations, interviews and demonstrations that are intended to provide comfort and hope to the people who are coping with life’s anxieties.
He said they are holding free Bible-based lectures every year as part of their public service to the community.
In Metro Manila, starting June 2-4, 2017 and every Friday to Sunday until August 18-20, 2017, series of conventions will be held at the Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Novaliches, Quezon City.
