    The tremendous growth in Jah's Organization and His blessing on his people is made very clear by the rapid reduction in buildings and the blessing of now not needing a printery and way less housing.

    We look forward to this tremendous growth as we rapidly approach the end of this wicked system of things and with open hearts full of appreciation we see the hand of God in these matters as Kingdumb Hauls are sold and the blessing of mergers continue.

    No mention of the last days or time of the end. Is Armageddon not coming any more?

    Jookbeard Is it me or does Lett act and sound more and more like Forest Gump

    Nope. If they make a movie " FOREST GUMP : THE GOLDEN YEARS" Lett would be a dead cert to get the part of Forest.

    Great video. One of the best I've seen!

    What a blessing the JWs are experiencing in JW land... out in the jungles of GUYANA

    Thank you. I wasn't up to date on this. Didn't realize (or if I did know it, had forgotten) that the project was scaled back. As somebody commented on youtube, Tightpants Tony doesn't seem sincere when he talks about cutting the public editions of the mags back to 3/yr and no longer printing the yearbook. It seems as though he doesn't believe what he's saying.

    I can't believe this is the JWdom I used to love and vigorously defend. Those days are over.

    So, the end is imminent, and the only people on earth with the key to survival to the world's 8 billion people are cutting back, scaling down, selling meeting places, and no longer preaching as they used to? So, do they think they've done their job?

    I'm currently taking an intensive 5-week course. There are eight of us in the course, and I am by far the oldest one. I really like the seven young folks (all in their 20's, mostly early 20's) I'm in the class with. I was observing them thinking how these people know nothing about JWs. Finally, the subject of religion came up, and I told them how I lost my life to religion, and that's why I'm taking the course (to try to find work). They asked me what religion it was, and I told them the story. They were clueless about JWs. And, yet, according to JWs, these young folks are going to be destroyed. They are friendly, caring, normal, good people.

    JWs haven't warned these people. How could they be cutting back? If they are right about the world coming to an end, then they're going to be bloodguilty.

    Very well done. But I would really appreciate knowing the exact sources and dates of the videos that are included. In particular when was the video of the older brother saying that the branch relocation is costing more than they expected. I have never seen that before.

    The purpose of the new branch was originally to print more magazines. Now they won’t print any at all. But they are still building the accommodation buildings. Why? Who for? What are they going to be doing? It’s just weird. I think they’ll need to sell it. What else can they do with it?

    Perhaps Branch facilities will be dramatically reduced, just as every other aspect of the org has been.

    Zone Branches in Europe, (Selters) Australasia, Africa, South America, and North America would manage the reduced functionality of the org.

    Britain Branch up for sale in 3-5 years time for a nice little profit.

    Hi Slimboyfay. Excellent suggestion that you make:

    I would really appreciate knowing the exact sources and dates of the videos that are included

    I put this together as more of a comedic take on the White Elephant building in Chelmsford. Quick answer: the elderly branch committee members were all drafted in to make those videos before the crisis scale-back happened; so they were aware of the financially precarious venture from the get go. Stephen Lett = May 2015 broadcast. Anthony Morris = 2017 Annual Meeting. The other content is from the LEAKED "BRD Department" meeting that I uploaded today; I wanted to Cut & Paste something from an otherwise very long and boring video, so I make this; the BRD (Branch Relocation Department) meeting was January 2018, well after the crisis scale-back.

    I think I need to also put together a "serious" version of these videos, aligned chronologically, and with a serious narrative. You have inspired me....

    I agree though that a more detailed factual timeline would be really interesting.
