Recently i started this thread:
Here I posted mail from my good friend, who works for years in italan WT printery and is recently downsized:
how are you? and Mrs. Einstein and the kids? Do you know about the big changes in our
branch? We're closing the printery and some bethelites reassigned to the
field. I'm one of them. I will be leaving Bethel ........., 2010. That's a
big change, but I'm not too sad, it will be a nice opportunity to use my
experience at Bethel for the congregation, I'm planning to move abroad. I
was thinking about going to ................, there are some small congregations.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Take care, ................
I was wondering what to answer to seed at least some thoughts in his mind and still not to insult him. So here is my answer.
Feel free to comment on that:
Mrs. Einstein and me were very glad to receive your mail, although we were not
happy about the sad news.
Yes, I have read about the changes in italian branch on the internet some
time ago. We also heard spanish Bethel should be downsized as well,
as well as the headquarters in Broklyn are being sold step by step and
US branch being moved to Walkill, Patterson and the new location in
Ramapo. Sale of several assembly halls (Sweden, Denmark ...)is done
or on the way...
I must admit this troubles us, since we were taught we are just "months
- not years" (as stated in our publications) from Armageddon and Jehovah
is supposed to "speed up" the work in the last days.
I belive there is an explanation to whats happening and we must seek
However we were happy to hear about your plans to move to ........! ......... is a great country, I was there once and I loved it!
........, you are a great guy, we are sure wherever you go and whatever
you do, you will be happy and you will live a great live. We will be
very happy if you could come over to visit us. If it is possible, just
let us know!
Thanks for the nice picture of your family! Its great to have a family
and good relationships within the family.
How is .....and all the other guys doing? Please give our hugs to them!
We wish you joy a lots of strenght in these days!
