Surely Brazil's most International Kingdom Hall
I am sure that there is no better location for a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses than this in Foz do Iguaçu / Iguassu Falls Brazil. The Kingdom Hall - that is how Jehovah's Witnesses call their meeting and worship place - is located on Cataratas Avenue, on the way between the Aiport and downtown Foz do Iguaçu, "Foz" for short. Meetings are held here on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. There are, in addition, weekly meetings in LIBRAS - the Brazilian Sign Language. The Kingdom Hall is known as the International Congregation of JWs in Foz. The place's identification signs are seen in Portuguese (Salão do Reino das Testemunhas de Jeová), Spanish (Salón del Reino de los Testigos de Jehová) and English.
I think that three different congregations share the Kingdom Hall above. The Vila Yolanda Congregation with meetings on Tuesday 8:00 pm, Thursday 7:30 pm and Sunday 7:00 pm. The Central Congregation with meetings held on Tuesday, Friday 7:30 and Sunday 8:30 am. And the Brazilian Sign Language / Libras Congregation meeting on Monday 7:30 pm, Wednesday 7:30 and Saturday 7:00 pm.
