This is a big stone through jw.org windows.
Take care they will hound you.

I over reacted in the above reaction. The video's are not bad at all.
A nice insight.
Now these two videos have been reduced in size. I am going to try and
reduce that Pioneer Meeting video. I will be back with that one
shortly. If anyone can make any of the posted videos even smaller,
please do so.
Annual Bethel Office Meeting
2018-Regional-Be Courageous and Strong and Go to Work
Thanks Petra, wonderful work.
I've had a listen to the Accounting Video. It appears it may have been presented in 2016.
About 54 minutes in is a presentation by an LDC member.
At that time he says that there were (under the USA Branch I'm assuming)
48 Assembly Halls
6221 Kingdom Halls
1 Bible School Study
4 former branch facilities
on 6,379 total locations
9,127 total buildings which include outbuildings attached to those listed above
Interestingly, he says that they can only speculate as to the reasons why all these changes are taking place. We might think it's to make available an expansion for new ones or to train JWs to work together for the benefit of future times. But he makes it clear that we can only speculate as to why God is directing them in this way. In other words, they don't know and the GB has given no indication as to why they are doing this.
He also said that there is a Master Plan but the Branch has ownership of this and they expect that they may put it in print for them at some stage.
This is what they had planned for the next five years -
2017 20 new halls 72 renovations
2018 35 new halls 150 renovations
2019 40 new halls 250 renovations
2020 40 new halls 300 renovations
2021 40 new halls 300 renovations
An earlier speaker stated how everyone needed to be humble and allow themselves to be molded as if they were clay in a potters hand. The GB's direction was doing the molding and to think they know better or not allow themselves to follow the direction meant that they were not allowing God's hands to mold them.
You really did a great job of extracting info from that video! Thank you for all the updates.
You are such a wonderful support, thank you so very much!
I love it when these things get leaked.....for me it’s like poetic justice!
