J. R. Brown, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses at their world headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, comments: “All who accept our invitation to join us at the convention in their region will receive a very warm welcome, and we believe they will be happy they took the time to attend. The ‘Imitate Jesus!’ Conventions promise three days of fascinating presentations of Jesus’ dynamic teachings, designed to help people of all ages and circumstances.”
