So I was talking with an girlfriend that I had (actually the only friend I had in 'the truth'). We have recently reconnected, and she's still on the fence as to whether or not to go back into the org. However, her aunt, an elder's wife and all-around snot rocket, let her know what was going on in the truth (I'm guessing to get her to come back full-time cause 'look at all that's happening, and it's the end!' - which reminds me of early 90s, personally. This is what she wrote me (I know some of it has already been discussed on this board...but the sending home of the B-lites is a new one to me.) anyway...enjoy! :)
Muffy* was telling me recently that they have recently made almost half of the population of Bethel go home and spend as much time as possible in the preaching work...thats it...they are only letting people stay on a need basis. Starting next year they are going to only print one Awake a month and two Watchtowers - one for the public and one only for JW's. Also, they have upped their rescue efforts and set up HUB's especially in the gulf coast and people from all over have come down and rebuilt houses and set up new congregations... Muffy is saying that they are preparing for Armageddon by orgainizing this relief work because Armageddon will be the biggest natural disaster ever! I don't know...maybe its all a scare tactic.
*The name has been changed...cause I felt like it. ;)
anyway...my response was rather a massive thing. Hope I don't scare her. :/
