The new World Headquarters of Jehovah Witnesses in Tuxedo Park, Warwick, NY
A News Journalist Features the Bethel Facility of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Tuxedo, New York
Disclaimer: Angelladywriter, is not responsible for the false articles or advertisements that surround this article. My intention as a volunteer journalist is for this article to focus on the new World Headquarters of Jehovah's Witnesses and its purpose which is to educate people about the Bible and share the history of this organization. We must remember each of us are imperfect and should learn not to judge each other. It is vital that we demonstrate and practice true love as Jesus taught us. The love and respect of one another allow the choice of freedom of religion to be practiced. Never would we want to become like the rulers of #Russia, China, North & South Korea where religious freedom does not exist for certain citizens. Additional information is included in this article through well-researched information concerning a conspiracy which caused a ban of Jehovah's Witnesses by the Russian government.
Millions Plan to Visit the New Headquarters of Jehovah's Witnesses but Due to the Pandemic Visiting is Not Possible
The World Headquarters of Jehovah's Witnesses is tremendously impressive. Due to the global fight against the #Coronavirus pandemic, this facility is currently closed to visitors. This article presents some information and photos because millions of Jehovah's servants have not had the privilege to see the facility. Tours were tremendously popular but for now because of the virus they are no longer scheduled for the #Tuxedo Park, Warwick, New York facility. David, a volunteer parking attendant for the headquarters acknowledged how "It could take about three days to complete the entire tour." Unfortunately, David is correct. With hundreds of photos, historical facts, videos and interactive displays, three days maybe an underestimation for completion of the tour. It is still vital that you attempt to book and visit this spiritually stimulating facility in the future when it reopens for visitors. All will be welcome at that time and the tours are free of charge.

A Personal Interactive Approach at the Watchtower's World Headquarters
Your tour to the #World Headquarters of Jehovah's Witnesses must be scheduled through one of the volunteers at this facility in the future, once it is open to visitors again. When you receive your scheduled date and check-in, a device that is similar to a mini cell phone and a pair of earphones are given to each #visitor. Through these mechanisms, you can visit each display by putting in the numbers listed on the exhibit. Historical facts are given through pre-recorded information based on each individual display. This allows visitors to be informed about the photos, videos or information that is included. Guests can pace themselves through this interactive bravura without a personal tour guide. Many visitors expressed how much they appreciated this new personalized, spiritually uplifting, aspect of the tour.
Comments About How and Why the Tuxedo Park Facility Was Constructed
Kenneth Chernish, who served on the Construction Project Committee made this comment which is included within the video listed above entitled, Jehovah's Witnesses World Headquarters Move to Warwick: "To finish Warwick in less than four years which was our goal, we decided that construction would need to begin by July 2013 but as that date approached it really didn't seem as if we were gonna make it." The project was completed by thousands of volunteers who worked diligently with the cooperation of local residents and commendations of governmental officials within the Warwick, New York area. Chernish went on to explain, "We spent a lot of time praying about it. We decided we needed to act in faith and we were convinced Jehovah was gonna make it happen. When approval came through we knew it was only by Jehovah's spirit that that happened."
During the tour, a presentation was given by one of the tour guides. She explained how the witnesses went to such extremes during construction to protect two animals; the rattlesnake and a certain type of turtle. A dam is on the property although this location was vacant for years. The guide went on to explain how; frogs, bluebirds, #bald eagles, whitetail deer, black bears as well as numerous other wildlife cohabit peacefully in the midst of Tuxedo Park where the headquarters currently exists. Another volunteer worker acknowledged, "You know its not very easy to build 1.6 million square feet surrounded by forest without impacting that forest but that is what we were asked to do so that design requirement, as well as the limited infrastructure on the site, made it necessary to stage our personnel, shops and material storage someplace else. Tuxedo site was just perfect for that need being just six miles away." To hear more about individual, inspirational experiences, go to the video featured at the top of this article.

Heavy Hearts Remain at the World Headquarters as Jehovah's Witnesses Continue to be Banned in Russia
The love for all humankind based on the teachings of Jesus Christ taught to him by his Heavenly Father Jehovah God at John 13:34 which states: "I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, you also love one another." (NWT of the Holy Scriptures) This #love compels me to pray for all people under the Russian regime, who no longer have #religious freedom except for certain individuals. This legitimate source of justice is being taken away not only from Jehovah's Witnesses but other religious organizations within Russia. Sounds familiar? Are we witnessing another #Hitler regime? May each of us intellectually and spiritually discern the clear similarities rather than trying to condemn each other's religious choices.

Claudette Coleman Carter (author) from Media, Pennsylvania on March 30, 2020:
I am so thankful to that my family and l remain spiritually strong during these critical times of the Coronavirus pandemic. We continue to have our regularly scheduled weekly meetings through the technology of Zoom. I get to see and hear the comments of my brothers and sisters although l cannot physically touch them. We have been determined to obey God’s law as well as governmental authorities as Jesus Christ told us to do at Mark 12:17 which states ”Pay back Caesar’s things to Caesar, but God’s things to God.” Romans 13:1 helps us to also see that we should ”...be in subsection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God;...” I am so thankful for our spiritual food in the past as it continues to give us hope for the future.
