Barbara was seeking contacts in other nations so this may have been to confirm that something going on was and is going on internationally.
This means that the "evidence" she needed and had was focused on the U.S. branch so that she needed the confirmation for other nations as well.
Meanwhile Bill Bowen was gone an unusually long period of time from his website.
What do both have in common?
They both have dealt with exposing the Watchtower's sending pedophiles door-to-door to preach, which endangers the public to say nothing of other Jehovah's Witnesses and their children.
To me this points toward the possibility that the Big Surprise or expose is that she may have documents showing that the Watchtower coverup is international in pattern and therefore international agencies dealing with crimes can now come into play.
Of course, that's just a guess....
You can be sure it's no "surprise" to Ted Jaracz, though. His secret angels are everywhere with electronically-honed spiritual ears and eyes.
So that's the big surprise....... I think.
