IT’S 15 weeks into the midyear and the Kahayon family could be headed to a theme park, the beach or even visiting grandparents for the weekend.

Instead, Joal and Cloe Kahayon and their three kids are eagerly anticipating a three-day convention along with a few thousand people who will come to hear exciting good news.

“We are delighted to be taught by Jehovah and spend time with families and friends,” said Joal Kahayon of Bay, Laguna.

“We look forward to the new video releases that will help us gain a deeper understanding of the lessons from the Bible,” he added.

One of the largest convention organizations in the world returns when the Metro Manila Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Kaligayahan, Novaliches, Quezon City happens where a much-anticipated motivational program to comfort and encourage the public will happen.

In a world where bad news endlessly streams on social media, TV and radio, Jehovah’s Witnesses will present their 2024 “Declare the Good News!” convention series beginning the weekend of May 24-26, 2024.

The free, three-day live event is expected to draw more than 3,000 attendees to the city over the course of 15 weekends, fueling the city’s economy with local spending at stores, hotels and restaurants.

“We are excited to work once again with city officials in QUEZON CITY to host our conventions,” said Prof. Normito Zapata Jr. and Dr. Melchor Basalo, spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses in Metro Manila.

“These conventions are a highlight of the year for thousands of people who want to experience some positivity in their lives, and we are happy to enjoy the program once again in this welcoming and hospitable city.”

The “Declare the Good News!” convention will present Bible-based videos, discourses and interviews on topics such as Why Do We Need Good News?, What Will You Do “for the Sake of the Good News? and Why We Don’t Fear Bad News.

Saturday features a baptism of candidates from surrounding communities, while a two-part video feature will captivate the audience on Friday and Saturday mornings.

Prior to each convention, local congregations will engage in a campaign to invite community members to this free event.

Last year, nearly 13 million people attended more than 6,000 three-day conventions worldwide.
