About 28,000 members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses are gathering this weekend and next at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho for their annual regional convention. The theme of this year’s convention is “Love Never Fails.”
Among them will be members of the 53 congregations in New Mexico, Southwestern Colorado and Arizona, but it is expected to draw adherents of the religion from an even wider area around the region, said Juan Lobato, local spokesman for the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The regional event is part of a series of conventions from around the world, in which some of the speakers will appear on a big screen monitor, live or delayed streamed from remote locations. There will also be local speakers filling out the program, Lobato said.
