I have been reading about all the Big News. Sorry to disappoint, but I do not know of any and I would know if there were some.
I know the tract campaign for Oct. but that's all as far as any news the reg. pubs. have gotten yet.
As for needing contact info, the new policy post-Katrina is that all BSO's have an updated list of publishers, their numbers, cell
numbers, work numbers, etc. These are to be transmitted to the Sec. who will then compile a Master list for all Elders. In the event of
a "natural disaster" the BSO is supposed to make contact with EVERYONE is his book study, make sure they have at least 5 days rations of food
and water, and if they are evacuating then the contact info of any relatives/friends/hotels, etc. He needs to do all this BEFORE taking stock
of his own situation.
