I put aside my standard anti-religion rant as I talked to these two Jehovah’s Witnesses at the Mountain View Framers Market last week. They told me about their work and the power of their beliefs.
R: What has been the most memorable positive experience you’ve had going door-to-door trying to interest people in your religion?
JW: A very depressed young man sitting in his darkened livingroom. Ex-military. Suffering from PTSD. Told us he saw no reason to go on. We talked for twenty minutes. As we left, he took our literature and hugged us, saying, “Thank you. It looks better now. Maybe I’ll pull through after all.” Things like this keep us going.
I then took this photo.
The fresh fruit vendor got the attention of this young boy.
