    Londo111---wow, I can see why you bumped this! How true the words of cinnamon1642 have proved to be. The now inactive slimboyfat's words also in this thread have likewise been shown to be spot on.

    From the Op that obviously had legit info.

    It's the DO that hae now been eliminated, not the CO. The elders are trained to step in for the CO now as well. From my understanding the DO had expenses paid, but the CO not so much. Is that correct? More cost cutting for the WT and planting it on the R&F.

    It seems most of the origional predictions six years ago are spot on.

    cinnamon1642 where are you??

    Co's are carried in many respects by the branch , but of course the branch has no money the congregations dont 'donate'. Local comgregations at times also provide a small apartment and take care of meals and incidential expenses. They essentially cut out a layer of middle managment but added to the ranks of the lower layer managment. It seems not so much cost cutting as an attempt at greater quality control. Co's no longer report through a layer mangment to the branch they report directly to the branch. Also no more DO montoring the CA program, now its a branch rep. All about quality control, making sure the message stays pure, making sure everyone stays on script and the congregations all get the same message the same way

    I could still see this happening...

    The OP said the CO's visit would be reduced to 4 days instead of 6 and would take place 3 times a year. Did that happen?

    I've been out for a few years, but I don't believe they have two midweek meetings on Tuesday and Thursday like before, just one midweek meeting. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Plan for eventually selling all buildings in Brooklyn between 2015 – 2020.

    This was the last item on the list.

    That sure is happening right on schedule.

    I wish cinnamon1642 was still around, or would speak up if here.

    Also, glad Slimboyfat is back.

    He too has good information to ponder on.

    I think this has to be one of my favorite post in this entire forum. It was very insightful and shared a lot of information.

    Taken from page 18:

    Why don't residents of Bethel clean their own toilets in their own bathrooms? I don't get it.
    It's just a way they can search bethellites apartments with a reason. by having someone clean the room, they will be able to open drawers for banned books, dvds, and music

    You might add vibrators to the list of contraband in Bethelite sisters' rooms!🤣
