Wow 160! That's great! I think there's about 60 or 70 in our cong. We share our hall with another congregation though, they have around 90. Our meetings are tuesday evenings and sunday morns. Yeah it's the same in England, ours is in July. We have it at a football stadium during the closed season. Where do you have yours?

Nice to meet you Dave. I'm Jon Walker. Delaware - that's a great name, I like it! I'm from Telford, in Aqueduct congregation. I'm the same with my field service, just gota keep trying :) Yeah I enjoyed that point too, it's amazing, the power of the holy spirit and how it can help you through anything. What days do you have your meetings?

Congratulations! I'm really pleased for you. I'm still on bible readings, but it's nice to know we can progress :-) Isn't it amazing to know we're part of a worldwide family! It's a shame about all those ones dropping out, but if they've got any sense they'll come back and learn from their mistakes before it's too late. But we've all got choices I guess.
I'm pioneering this month, because I was made redundant at the end of last year. And I was only a temp, so I didn't get any pay-off money either lol. So I thought I'd try and use the time wisely cuz I don't know when I'll get to do it again.
Was a nice Watchtower for last sunday wasn't it :-) about our place in the congregation.

Sounds like you've had a lot goin on. Well done for sticking with it. It's not easy is it! I was raised in the truth but left when i was 16. formed a punk band and everything, but then at 23, after years of un-happiness, knew that it was the right thing to do. i think i always knew, i just didn't want to do it. i got baptised last year, along with my wife at the district convention.

thats cool. nice to meet you. were you brought up as a witness?

Yea man that's cool. I wasn't really into country before but I decided to give it a chance when I was dating an ex g/f of mine and I actually got into it. People have different taste in music but just because you don't like something, that doesn't give you the right to bash on that genre. So I'm glad that you said that cause I respect people like that. =p

I agree with you. Music is a great outlet and that's what I love about it. Easiest way to express your feelings is to do it through music and that's the best kind of music. Dude, I listen to EVERYTHING literally. People say that all the time but really don't mean it. I listen to Rock, Punk, Jazz, Classical, Country, Hip Hop, R&B, pop, soul and etc. I just appreciate all genres and what they offer...but I mostly listen to alternative rock, R&B and hip hop. I could give you a lists of my favorite artists/bands but the list is pretty long...lol. What about you?
Posted by JayJay07 on 1/1/2010 3:54 AM (GMT-04:00)
Took a listen and you guys are pretty good bro! Keep up the good work! I was in a band back in my hometown of Dallas but we weren't together for too long cause I moved out here to Cali and one of our other members moved Chicago so yea. The studio process is definately dope...that's mostly what I've been doing. I do alot of behind the scenes stuff...producing, writing for other artists and things like that but I'm looking to branch out on my own. Music has kind of taken a backseat to everything else that's going on in my life right now but that's going to chance with the new year. I'm strictly going to be about music cause I want to pursue a career in it and it's what I love. I'm sure you feel the same way..

My name is Johnny. Damn dude, you've been playing for a long ass time!! lol. I wish I would've gotten into it earlier but w/e. I play the piano and have been writing songs for the past year or so...but music has always been a passion of mine. So now I'm just learn the guitar because I love all kinds of music. I know what you mean though, the equipment shouldn't matter as long as you play from the heart and have love for music, you can pretty much play on anything. Are you in a band or anything? Or do you just play solo?

Sorry for the late response but what's up? Yea, I just started to play the guitar not to long ago. I'm playing on this crappy Yamaha that didn't cost much just because I'm still a beginner. I will probably be upgrading pretty soon but not sure on which guitar I want to upgrade to yet. How long have you been playing man? By the way my name is Johnny, it's nice to meet you.
