Just talking to someone recently about former CO's in our area. It went as follows,,,,George Cook,saw that he was now in Princes congregation or should say the former Prince.
Brother Gwaltney,,NW USA area now drives a school bus his wife sold cosmetics at a Nordstrom.
Brother Spangenberg had to leave CO work as his wife was sick ,,went to low paying menial job.
Brother ---- cant remember his name but he is now working a a waiter in a Italian restaurant,,singing as requested by customers. He had a promising career as a Tenor in his younger days but gave it up for the troof.
Brother Baxter had high tastes when he came calling to the congs. but he ended up timed out due to age. No, no more green handshakes, no more freebies at best restaurants. Turning his nose up at the humble congs. offerings in the way of meals. Just remembering as I type this makes me do a slow burn.
It's not just them though, who now in their older years have nothing. it's all those who listened to these "Judas goats" preach against planning for a retirement or having a savings fund or getting an education so that you could have a job that payed well.
Anybody else have those stories?
