    They read a letter about the 2014 District Conventions and how some would be international.

    My thought was that this is a gimmick to get people excited. The organization has jumped the shark so they need

    to use gimmicks to bring excitement.

    The congregations were to pass a resolution to for $.15 per publisher for 17 months to go to a fund to bring the missionaries home,

    than any leftover funds would go to the World Wide Work.

    So it looks like the international conventions are a front for fundraising to the WWW.

    I don't think it is aimed specifically at getting people excited. They have to announce it far enough in advance so JW's can actually go. I went to an international convention in Berlin.

    I actually enjoyed the international convention, if only because I got a chance to meet a lot of interesting people from all over the world.

    So the WTS would encourage all to send it upfront so they won't forget? times 7.5 million = $19M +?

    How many "missionaries" are there now?

    They told us it was 50 cents per publisher. I guess it must be more expensive to fly to Canada, or they figure we've got more money to give.
