    Thanks for the heads up Gayle. I've been looking forward to this for weeks!

    Reduction in branches not as dramatic as I expected, but still falling...

    • 2009 - 118
    • 2010 - 116
    • 2011 - 98
    • 2012 - 96

    Definitely not keeping up with world population growth -

    Sadly ... that number IS keeping up with US population growth, which was .7% for 2011.

    On the other hand, haha, if all they're doing is keeping up with the growth of the population, that definitely dashes their "rapid growth in recent years" delusion.

    stupid kids running with the herd...

    Growth continues to slow. But can you really believe their self reported numbers?

    A couple of outliers....

    Saint Martin (not the same as Saint Maarten) (no report for 2011, 299 for 2012, so 100% increase)

    South Sudan (no report for 2011, 1103 for 2012, so 100% increase)

    Smaller yearbook, too. 192 pgs. (255 in 2011 and 2012 yearbooks)

    I look forward to showing this to wifey, who is convinced there is rapid growth, according to some video she saw at the KH.

    In the US, this growth is completley fueled by the foriegn language congregations
