At the meeting this week, when discussing the marvellous increase that Jehovah is blessing us with, a brother who had
attended the Gilead Graduation said that two missionaries had been assigned to countries where you would least imagine they would be sent.
One is going to serve in North America, the other in Canada.
Another brother, a Bethelite, said that there are too many workers there, so the Society is stressing great emphasis on the field activity and many
are being reassigned.
The WT conductor mentioned several countries where growth is 0% or in the negative, and asked the congregation, "Is the organization slowing down in this time of the end?"
to which an audience wearing rose-colored glasses said "No."
They really are so BLIND - the org had the worst increase in 70 years, just 1.3%, yet they don't think the work is slowing down, what with the Awake! magazine going monthly
, cutbacks on hardcover books, no subscriptions, selling off of buildings in Brooklyn and the impending layoff of thousands of Bethelites.
How sad, for they definitely need the medical presciption that Jesus gave to the Laodiceans, spiritual eye-salve in order that they may see.
