Ministers and spokespeople for the Jehovah’s Witnesses have confirmed they are planning to go door to door once again after taking two years off due to the pandemic.
During the hiatus, they adapted by switching to phone and virtual calls.
Now with the pandemic slowing down, they'll be back to their usual door to door routine starting Sept. 1.
Anthony Scandiffio is the minister of the congregation's Kingdom Hall in Baychester. He says he's been knocking on doors for almost 50 years.   
“To be able to come to their homes, to give them some comfort and show them that God still cares about us and that there's hope for the future is very exciting,” he said.
They know that not everyone may open the door to them.
"If they feel that way, if they don't want to discuss anything from the scriptures with us, if they feel they don't want a visit, then we respect that,” he said.
