Friday, May 31, 2013 marked the first day of the “God’s Word is Truth” District Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses, held at the historic Jersey City Assembly Hall in Jersey City. The three-day program is designed to help all to benefit from the practical direction found in the Bible.

Verona residents Desmond Francis and his young son, Xander Francis, participated in the Friday morning portion of the program. Desmond and Xander helped the audience to see evidence of God’s care for humans, even in something as seemingly simple as a flower. How encouraging it was to see a father and son working together to learn about the Bible, and plan a surprise of beautiful flowers to their wife and mother!

The program will be repeated in the English language three more times at the Jersey City Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 2932 Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City as well as other locations in the United States.

    You have truly given much wisdom and joy to your son that he will be able to use as he grows in his relationship with our Grand Creator Jehovah God. Thank you for setting that example and letting your light shine soooo brightly.

  6. Desmond, Tosha and Xander, what a blessing to see you doing so well in your service together . This part was so beautiful on the convention. While I did see it enacted by another Father and Son duo, I am confident you and Xander did a great job as well. I am so proud to know you personally. Wonderful , caring Father and husband. Your loyalty to our Father Jehovah God is refreshing to witness as we navigate these turbulent times. Keep up the good work, your family makes us proud, most of all our Heavenly Father proud. You and Tosha are to be commended!!!
