    A reservations manager commented about the 340 delegates who stayed at his hotel: “Everyone collaborates to solve problems. It looks to me like it is just a giant family and everyone is talking to and supporting each other. Seriously, it has been a joy to deal with everyone. I have been working in the hospitality industry for 11 years, and this is the only group that I have found like this.” As a result of his interactions with Jehovah’s Witnesses, the manager attended the convention on Saturday.
