"hey fired almost all the ‘special’ pioneers, which cut their expenses for missionaries substantially. And almost all new missionaries are already on the payroll, since the reorganization of Gilead in 2011."
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?
@Edison Trent, what do mean by taking the CO's back to Bethel?They are not bethelites.
By the way, if it would be true they better start sending new missionaries back home, most of them would be happy to be able to go back :) They are the real spenders. We lived in missionary-home that costs the branch 1100 us on rent alone, that for five of us, three constantly ill. That lights 300 US, our allowances, food (3 dollar a meal per person was the rule) etc. So a couple of CO are peanuts.
