I posted a thread yesterday about my elder husband putting the publishing plant first, and I was reminded that not all elders do that. That is very true, I know that and I pointed it out to my husband many times though it did not good. But the elders are told over and over to the brog first and it reminded me of an experience that they had at the last DC I went to in 2009.
They had a family on the stage the husband was an elder of course, they had I believe three kids if not four. The husband was involved in the RBC and some other stuff and he was never home. The oldest child was a boy who was about 14 years old and he was now man of the house. I kid you not. I was sick listening to it. The boy said that yes he missed his father but he knew his father was doing Jehovah's work and that was more important then being home with the family. The son conducted the family worship night as he was baptized and of course the mom being a woman was not allowed to do that with a baptized male in the home. On and on it went. I was sitting there crying, it really made me sick.
So I know that not all elders do this but the ones who follow the FS to the tee do. The stupid publishing plant comes first.
