    Seems like they can't spend money fast enough these days.

    The France bethel at Louviers is having a construction and renovation project.
    This has become necessary "due to the acceleration of the Kingdom work".

    This branch constructs 20 new kingdom halls each year across 2000 congregations sharing 1055 kingdom halls in 13 countries with a population of 150 million.

    The project involves a top to bottom renovation and construction of a 35 apartment residents building.
    Part of the former printery will become a car park and the building itself will be converted for use as a bethel laundry, offices, new audio/video studio, and a translation department.
    A former warehouse building will become a mechanics garage.

    This will be completed by summer 2018.

    They are seeking volunteers, and the graphic of Caleb happily dropping money into a box tells us we can also help with our contributions.

    Ahhh...that made me feel all warm and fuzzy! (sarcasm alert)

    Funny how they didn't mention the reason why the printing was stopped there in France in the first place!.....

    And last criticism...: "how can we help?" FIRST was FREE LABOUR, then was MONEY, oh, and as an afterthought, PRAY for Jehovah's blessing.....

    The Org's money-men are clearly pushing the G.B. to beg for more money because the costings of their global expansion aspirations haven't been well thought out!

    (Luke 14:28) For example, who of YOU that wants to build a tower does not first sit down and calculate the expense, to see if he has enough to complete it?

    This will be completed by summer 2018.

    How does the average JW not see the contradiction in this scheduling and their claim that we're in the final seconds of the final minutes of the last day of the "Last Days"?

    Wonder what the big picture is, are these new big building developments really going to fill a need in the future for some big corporation to buy?
