    So I call my dad, who lives in FL and I live in CT, to see how he is doing. He sounds exhausted. I ask what's up, he informs me the brothers went on a vacation together and left him to open the hall, give a talk, etc..My dad is 90!!! So he has to DRIVE to the hall and take care of all the business. Now this is not for a day but 1 WEEK!!!!!I am literally afraid it's going to kill him. They are just such losers.

    Do you know these other elders? Send a letter to the WT headquarters to site possible abuse of the elderly via your lawyer to investigate?

    Maybe he should delegate the task of giving the talk to you. You can include stuff like Ray Franz,Pyramids, UN NGO etc in your talk. Will not be a standard talk for sure.

    Bad businessmen, didn't these guys ever hear of delegating assignments and using assistants.

    Don't forget this is a religion that gets 90 & even 100 year old men to run the whole show , so no surprise there.

    Re designs comments , the problem in numerous congregations is that there just aren't the younger ones "reaching out". They are either too lazy or are 2nd / 3rd gen JWs who have seen the hassle that their fathers took & want no part of it.
