I'll be praying for Clarence and Louise, and for the Lord to give you the words that will start this couple thinking. What a wonderful opportunity the Lord has put at your door! May He bless your efforts to reach JW's with the true Gospel of Jesus.
As a note: Clarence may be an elder, but Louise is not. Women aren't allowed positions of leadership in the congregations.
Thank you so much for your encouragement, Mrs. R, I really do appreciate it! My wife and I have calmed down a little bit since the first encounter, and have had some encouragement from Wilbur Lingle. The Lord has already blessed us greatly with this opportunity. Only He knows the condition of their hearts. He has given us an extended period of time to better prepare for our next meeting, as my wife and I have plans this Saturday, and Clarence and Louise have plans the following Saturday. I will definitely be in prayer and deep study of the techniques that need to be employed to help them to start thinking. I know this will take a good long while, but the rewards are so very great.
Thanks again for the prayers, and clarification on the elder title!!
