I have exciting news! The rural group we have been trying to start for a long time is now going strong with their very own Kingdom Hall! A few weeks ago, I blogged about the construction they were frantically doing to get ready for their Memorial. Well, now I have some shots of the finished product. It's very simple, but very beautiful.
It's not an official group yet, but has 23 publishers including 3 ministerial servants, 4 pioneers, and for now, the elders are taking turns attending to the needs of the group. The brothers there have told me that they usually have close to double the publishers in attendance! We're hoping that during our next circuit overseer's visit, they'll be named as an official group. They now have all of their meetings separate from us, although we'll continue to all share the same territory.
If you are looking for a place to serve where the need for Kingdom publishers is greater, do you think this could be the place for you? If so, feel free to send a private note using the new "contact me" box to the right of this blog post.
