Juana Ventura yatangiye kwiga Bibiliya igihe umurimo wari ubuzanyijwe, kandi yabatirijwe mu ruzi rwa Ozama mu mwaka wa 1960. Hari igihe umupasiteri wo mu mugi wa Santo Domingo yashatse gufungisha Juana, amushinja ko “yamwibaga abayoboke.” Pasiteri yashatse gukoza isoni Juana no kugaragaza ko Abahamya ba Yehova ari abanyabinyoma, maze amutumira mu rusengero kugira ngo asubize ibibazo bihereranye n’imyizerere ye mishya.

Juana agira ati “yambajije ibibazo bitatu: ‘kuki mudatora? Kuki mutajya mu ntambara? Kuki mwiyita Abahamya ba Yehova?’ Igihe nasubizaga buri kibazo nifashishije Bibiliya, abayoboke be bose barebaga imirongo muri Bibiliya maze bagatangazwa n’ibyo basomye. Benshi muri bo biboneye ko bari babonye ukuri. Bose batangiye kwiga Bibiliya kandi amaherezo 25 muri bo biyeguriye Yehova.” Icyo kintu gitangaje  cyongereye imbaraga mu murimo wo kubwiriza mu mugi wa Santo Domingo.
