Hi Everyone,
I have a new Internet friend from the meetup group for ex-JW's I have joined.
His name is Caleb. He's a very handsome young man who was born and raised in a JW family.
Just recently, Caleb has left the Witnesses. He is getting extreme pressure from his parents,
family and friends to return. Of course they are using their guilt and fright technique telling him that he
is going to die at Armageddon if he doesn't return. This past weekend, his parents brought the District
Overseer and the City Overseer to his house to pressure him even more. He is feeling very attacked and
fragile; also very sad at the thought of losing his parents forever by their shunning.

He has a very wonderful friend, Jill, who is trying to encourage him. Never having been a JW herself,
she has a hard time understanding the JW techniques. She has joined the meetup group too in order
to get more support for Caleb and also to get a better idea of how the JW org works. She is extremely
upset to see him in this position and has asked me to keep Caleb in my prayers.

Since I know that everyone here knows the power of prayer, I am asking for your prayers also.
Thanks and continued blessings to you all.

Sophia

Hi sophia, it always sends a shiver down my back when ever I hear stories like Caleb's, as Mrs R said on a another post recently, only those who were in the org' fully know and understand the pain which can be felt by those who leave the wts, and that is so true, yet there is a measure of compassion felt with in us, towards them that are going through such pains of being shunned.
May Caleb grow in strength day by day, as he faces these trails.

I will remember him in my prayers.

I got some more news about Caleb last week while the forum was down.
His mother has had a nervous breakdown and of course they are blaming Caleb.
What a horrible guilt to put on this man!! If they could just see that it is the Org.
that puts these unreasonable, unbiblical stresses on them!!!!
Please keep him in your prayers.
