About 8 months ago a CO told me that the society was struggling to appoint MS's/Elders to keep up with the needs. Of course this was when he was pumping me to "reach out" to become an MS. It's kinda fun to sit back and watch it now. I know of sisters in the hall I'm assigned to that are doing the accounts servants position and the territory.
I like the "scum will float to the top" phrase. It's happening for sure.
