- Is it a fact that all KH construction earth wide has stopped?
- I know someone on the LDC i think its called - a few months ago he said that only 3 of the new MacKingdom Halls have been built in the USA.
- When I had my 'shepherding call' just before the Memorial, the two Elders calling on me told me this. All sales of Kingdom Halls and all construction is halted until further notice. One Elder was very surprised because the old hall that I used to attend had a cash offer and the Elders were told by Brooklyn DO NOT SELL at this time.
- no, it isn't true
- I know that on the West Coast of the US, virtually ALL building and remodeling has come to a halt. A few little minor things going on where select individuals get invited, but essentially ALL RBC programs have been shut down.
- There is very little happening in the UK.

The Watch Tower Society has always endeavored to use all the resources at its disposal to further the preaching of the good news. In 1915, as president of the Society, Charles Taze Russell said: “Our Society has not sought to lay up earthly riches, but has been, rather, a spending institution. Whatever God’s providence sent in to us without solicitation we have sought to spend as wisely as possible in harmony with the Word and Spirit of the Lord. Long ago we announced that when the funds would cease, the activities of the Society would cease proportionately; and that as the funds increased, the Society’s activities would be enlarged.” The Society has continued to do exactly that.
Maybe intentionally slowed so that more money can be donated to HQ Bethel.
GB are pressing to gather up as much cash as they can these days for some reason. ???
- I was wondering that my own self. My brother mentioned that he was "enjoying" the new building program. He is the guy that audits the projects. I didn't pursue the conversation with him, but I am still wondering if there are any projects going on.
- Maybe the GB are busy building bunkers to live in when tshtf.
