I'm embarassed to say, for the longest time, I didn't even realize that Bethelites went out to the local KH's for the meetings. Since everything else is done at Bethel, I always just assumed that all the meetings took place there as well. I can't believe that they expected Bethelites to pay $3.00 to the driver every single time they drove them to the Kingdumb Hell. What was your monthly allowance? Something like $100.00/month?
And here's a question for former Bethelites in the States: Did you have any sort of health insurance coverage while you lived there?
