Last night was the CO's visit. Prior to his part, an elder had a part on following theocratic direction. It was about our congregation being deleted (there are 2 sharing this hall) and the people and territory being divided up to the 4 other surrounding ones.
They say it is not about numbers but about making best use of resources. They put this spin on how it is beneficial with more people, more elders, etc. The only thing that would benefit would be less utility bills on the Hall. The good thing is that it will be easier to be invisible and fall through the cracks and not be missed.
