On our Local Needs part tonight, the Elder (On the local LDC), conducting the part, said he just got back from a Meeting in Memphis TN with Members from the US Branch RDC conducting the meeting. They mentioned that only 6 New Kingdom Halls and 2 Major Re-Models were completed in 2016. "It may seem like a small accomplishment, considering under the Old RBC arrangement there was some 700 projects on the average each year being done", "but, this is going 5-10 years of training to kick this new program into optima production". Then he added, "We have applications on hand if you want to be a part of this new arrangement that Jehovah's Organization has put into place".
I'm thinking, boy, they must be building up a large cash reserve.
