You will also find it difficult to get people take on contracts if and when you change your mind and start building again. Trust disappears.
I have an old friend who was the best man in my wedding and who is now a multi millionaire, X-Elder, Overseer of overseas Assembly Hall Projects and an investigator of pedophile claims in the U.S. He told me that a lot of the materials for his Assembly Hall Builds were supplied by JW vendors and there were many instances of price gouging and fraud discovered.
His highly skilled service ended when he was disfellowshipped for notifying a congregation that an imprisoned pedophile from his Hall had just been reinstated and was being released from prison. He was specifically told by the society not to say anything but did it anyway and was DF'd. He told me that between the horrendous pedophile cases he investigated (victims committing suicide etc) and the fraud he witnessed on the part of JW's scamming the Society, he's done for good, which is something I never thought I'd see happening, to him.
