Is anybody aware of any Kingdom Hall builds going on or any kind of LDC activity? I've been wanting to ask this, and committeechairman's question at the end of this thread, http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/topic/289353/ldc-semininar?page=4&size=20, moved me to go ahead and ask.
I've kind of wondered whether the org leaders got rid of RBCs and instituted the LDC arrangement because they wanted to be able to stop or slow down construction without it being obvious. Think about it. If the RBCs were still in existence, it would be obvious that there's nothing (or almost nothing) going on (if that really is the way it is) because RBC personnel would be idle when they were used to being busy. Not long ago, the RBC in my area was very busy with many projects lined up. If all of a sudden they'd had nothing to do, it might have been obvious that something was wrong. However, under the LDC arrangement, it's not so obvious. JWs probably just assume that there's work going on somewhere, and nobody really seems to know.
So can anybody provide some input? Does anybody know of any work going on?
I can't find the threads on the halt/slowdown that was discussed on this site fairly recently. Was the halt/slowdown thing ever announced officially? Was it stated that Kingdom Hall construction would be slowed down or halted? If so, was this information ever provided to the rank and file? If I remember correctly, Herd's video announcement was about cutbacks of special pioneers, not construction.
