This may explain the letter to all bodies of elders dated 07-08-2015 wherein it was announced that in some cases congregations might be merged or relocated to more fully utilize existing Kingdom Halls. This would at least delay the need for new Kingdom Halls in some of the larger metro areas.
It funny how they have all these lawsuit payouts in the wings and they were planning on going full steam by buying all kinds of property and investing in many building project, boy the Governing Body is so deluded by their own bullshit that they can't make good business decisions. I think this whole expansion thing was because they can't except reality they turn a habitual deaf ear to it because they know everything already they are the F&DS and they give orders to be obeyed or else.
I wonder how all this money grabbing under false pretense will look if they are forced transparent some how? I think the changing of contribution box labels recently was a way they could get donation and use them for what ever they wanted and not be held accountable.
It was funny how after the big money grab of the congregations that Herd at the annual meeting report said it wasn't the publisher fault for the deficit and that they(not them) simply over spent Jehovah's money. After grabbing all that money by extortion they better not blame it on those they just robbed!
