Today was the first day of the Open House of our new Kingdom Hall on Tucuman!
During the past few weeks, we spent some time inviting many in the community to come see the new building and learn what goes on there. This included many government officials (Ministers of Finance, Justice, etc) as well as editors of major newspapers and presidents of other organizations here in the city.
Of course, the three-story building was built completely by volunteers and funded by volunteer donations. Yet, it is an impressive structure.
So today, we had many visitors coming to see the place. Inside, we had representatives of many of the language groups and congregations here (English, Korean, German, Russian, Portuguese, French, Sign Language and Spanish, of course) as well as banners describing the preaching work and history of Jehovah's Witnesses in Argentina.
We also had the showing of two videos. One is about how Jehovah's people stood firm in the face of Nazi assault by refusing to support Hitler in any way. For that, many were sent to concentration camps and killed.
On Sunday, we have the second day of the Open House as well as the dedication talk.
Pictures are soon to come...
