The theme of this year’s program is “Keep Seeking First God’s Kingdom!”

Senly Lamani, a convention spokesman, states: “People of many faiths pray for God’s Kingdom. This convention will explain what that Kingdom is and how it can be a positive influence in our lives.

A highlight of the program will be the keynote address on Friday morning, which will discuss how that Kingdom is benefiting people today.”

He adds: “A core belief of Jehovah’s Witnesses, based on Biblical and historical evidence, is that Jesus Christ began to rule as the King of God’s Kingdom in 1914. The convention program marks this year as the centennial of that event.”

For the next two weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses will extend personal invitations to as many people as possible from Biluro, Bemuta, Choiseul, Honiara, Mbarande, Tulagi, and Yandina to attend the convention in Honiara with them. '

The first of two three-day events to be held in Honiara will begin Friday, October 3, 2014, at 9:20 a.m. There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.

An estimated 2,500 will come to Kukum Kingdom Hall over two successive weekends for the Bible-based programs. Jehovah’s Witnesses in Solomon Islands plan to host9 conventions in 7 cities. Convention locations will include Alasi, Auki, Honiara, Lata, Makira, Munda, and Ngalifasi. Worldwide, there are over 7,900,000 Witnesses in more than 113,000 congregations.
