Brings back memories, the U.S pics anyway.
My wife thought that after visiting Brookly and Patterson I would then change my mind about stopping attending meeting etc; it did the opposite. Like Balistic I thought..........look at all the real estate!
There are African JW who have to travel miles to KH's and assemblies only to sit on planks in 100+ temps. No monies = no beautiful buildings. You would think the borg would GIVE funds to 3rd world JW's so thay can at least have a nice KH!
Uncle Onion ask me on my return to the UK what my first thought of Patterson was.............To sum it up in one word, I replied, Wako!
