    I was a thriving regular pioneer, doing all thr things wholeheartedly, had 16 bible studies, 7 attending meetings regularly, 11 magazine routes and 100's of RV's. you can imagine I was always runnin out of literature and always a good list of books to order every month.(not bragging,just stating facts.All this is wasted anyway). I remember my orders were always pending for months on end,never reciving them.The literature servant was an elder and a regular pioneer who was not doing very well ministry wise at all despite the fact that he had so much support financially, and otherwise (it should have been a breeze for him as he had all the comforts and luxuries catered for with no expense spared. that is another subject in itself) Anyways we were spring cleaning the KH and i was in the store room cleaning away. I was moving some cardboard boxes when one s bottom gave away and books fell to the floor. Voila , all the literature that i had pending was in their(over 50 books no joke).It had been there for a while coz the box had water damage on it and that is why it gave way. There was a literature list with the date when it was shipped and that was shipped a year ago and just sitting there in the store room. I was shocked at the lies that I was being fed just coz my report perhaps looked so much better than his that the regular pioneer elder devised this plan to thwart it. Mind you i was not wasting Societys money coz all these books were spoken for. I would put in the money for it whenever I picked up any literature plus the receivers always gave generously towards the books which also went into the contribution box. I was not being wasteful. From then on I would just pick up literature by visiting other congregations and stopped ordering all together. This was the lords work supposedly and here i was being punished for doing it well.

    I dont believe in confrontations,no point in muddying waters some more specially people with authority dont like to be challenged.He could make life more difficult for me. I just analyse and learn what one is made of and get on with life.

    Should have woken up then.......

    I think we all can relate when looking back on our lives in that religion. There are quite a few times I too think back on my time in it and wonder why I just didn't wake up earlier.

    Zin I did the same thing when I first got on this site. Sometimes when you post there is a waiting period before you can see your post has landed on the site.

    I wrote out my introduction story and couldn't get it posted so I hit it again and then again. I finished with something as long as Moby-Dick.

    Best way to post is to hit it one time. Then if the wheels are spinning do something else for a while to give it a chance. The best way to check that it has been posted is to go to the forum page and hit Refresh and see if it shows up as a new subject or a reply.

    Thanks for joining us by the way.
