Thanks for the response. The best man at my wedding quit his high-paying Nordstrom IT job to go to Brooklyn Bethel and then an African Bethel. In addition, he cashed out all of his stock options and donated it to WTBTS...didn't need the money...he was going to serve at Bethel 'till the end.'
He was brought back for one of the district conventions. While walking in to morning worship, he had a massive heart attack. Long story short. As soon as he was able to travel, they dismissed him. He was destitute, and had to live with our PO for months. Finally, Bethel agreed to pay him a stipend for one year...to get back on his feet.
