Witnesses Converge On South Mississippi

Thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses are in South Mississippi today for day one of their district convention. The theme for this year's gathering is "Walk With God". More than five thousand followers of the faith are expected to attend this weekend's conference at the coast coliseum.

Similar meetings are being held across the country. We asked the program chairman what sets Jehovah's Witnesses apart from more mainstream religious denominations.

There are more than six million Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide. The group is active in 235 countries.
