I know a couple who just sold EVERYTHING they owned, yes EVERYTHING
(house, cars, belongings, everything), bought a plane ticket to travel
across the country, to be a part of the training schools and the new LDC
It boggles my mind that people actually do this.
It's not just "high profile" cases either.
I personally know of a couple who sold everything, or nearly everything, when in their late 60's and planned to live off the proceeds while pioneering "until Armageddon came".
Well, guess what? Armageddon didn't come, they ran out of money, and both had to start working again in their 70's / 80's, living in cheap rented houses, until one finally got cancer & died.
They put on a brave face....they got the "reward" of being interviewed a few times at circuit assemblies & district conventions...but in the end, it was a complete & utter waste.
If they hadn't sold everything and lived in misery & poverty for their last 10-15 years of earthly life, the old guy would still be due a resurrection, per JW doctrine, right? So what was the point of him making his old age miserable? There was no point - and based on how he acted the last time I saw him, I think he had figured it out.
Too late of course. He died a few weeks later.
