Special Meetings of the Workers, Friends and Overseers
Annual Special Meetings
Special Meetings are held once a year by the workers and are usually held in public schools or colleges near the FRIENDS. They are organized by overseers and their staff of workers.
What is special about the SPECIAL MEETINGS is that it is generally only at SPECIAL MEETINGS or CONVENTIONS that new WORKERS go out into THE WORK. Also, there are two meetings (morning and afternoon) during the assigned day.
Where Special Meetings are Held
Special Meetings are held wherever workers can find a hall or building large enough to host the Special Meetings. It is becoming increasingly difficult for 2x2s workers to rent halls for their meetings as building owners and managers find out more and more about the 2x2 denomination and their specific beliefs. Many private owners of buildings and Christians will not rent to the 2x2 group once they find out their anti-Christian and anti-denomination beliefs.
The state overseer is responsible for deciding which 2x2 special meetings the workers go to. Favored followers get first pick at which workers stay in their homes. Less favored followers of the workers get the leftover or less popular workers. Favored workers get the cars to drive around and less favored workers have to wait for others to give them a ride or ask the owners of the house where they are staying.
Special Meeting Feeding Frenzy
When I was a worker, we would also call it "special eating rounds" since people would make so much food and have so many meals with us. Workers were praised heavily during this time of year.

|To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.|
