    So I see an old friend who's an elder in his hall at the CA. His cong just recently got evicted from their kingdom hall. And he is just giddy about it. "Even though our congregation is now packed in another hall, our sacrifice benefits others! The organization needs the resources for all the growth we are experiencing!" So I said what growth? How is 1.4% growth! "Well we're growing like gangbusters in Africa that's where all the k.h's are being built!" Long story short a get back to him via text. And I tell him overall it looks like Africa has about a 3% growth which isn't bad but no way should that necessitate selling off k h's here to support them. And what of the 100's of millions the organization got the last 3 year's from the kingdom hall building fund that was to go toward building halls here. What is the organization doing with that money? I ended it with please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. That was almost a month ago and no response. Crickets

    The giddy euphoria of the thought of "ever increasing theocracy" evaporates rather quickly when cold, hard numbers are analyzed.

    I'm sure that KHs in Africa are built a substantial fraction of the cost of ones in 1st world countries such as the USA, UK, or Germany for example. You could probably build a KH in Africa for the price of a used car in the USA. One sold KH in a 1st world country could net 10-15 KHs in these lands. Just don't see that kind of growth in these area? Just look at the numbers in the report.

    I forgot to point that out. To build a simple concrete block structure with no HVAC and free labor in a 3rd world country, maybe 50k? In materials?

    IMO, that's generous.

    Mot of the pics of Third-World Kingdom Halls I've seen were just glorified gazebos.

    Yeah DOC, but those blue JW.BORG signs add $1000's to the bill. This KH needs more donations to buy one!
