These past couple of weeks we have been able to give various parts from the stage and in the theocratic ministry school, both Kanicia and I. A week ago the elder in our group and his wife attended the graduation for the couples school in Madrid. Madrid is around four hours away from where we live so they traveled by train and stayed the night near Bethel. The elder was also scheduled to give a talk for our group so he asked me if I would like to substitute for him. I agreed. This was my first public talk for the group. I choose to give the talk entitled ‘Do not forget the course of hospitality’. This group is extremely hospitable but we can all use reminders, right.
Kanicia had her second part in the theocratic ministry school last Tuesday acting as a householder. It was nice for her to be able to go over the part with the other sister twice in person before it was given since they live within walking distance. I had the following part that same day which covered the question, ‘Is it enough to just read the Bible?’ In our back school you really can focus on the brothers and sisters in front of you when you have a part because it is a small room. It is about 2/3’s the size of the second school in Mill Valley French.
I am scheduled to give another talk in January in French in Murcia and a talk in March in English in the city of Lorca. The following week we had a public talk given in two parts of 15 minutes each. I don’t remember the last time I saw that! It was nice because the brothers giving the talk were able to not have as long of a time requirement. During that meeting we had a bible student from the territory come and he even commented three or four times during the Watchtower study!
