That was certainly the case for Jehovah’s Witnesses working on their Kingdom Hall in West Bay over the weekend.
Over 100 members from the four local congregations and a dozen from the United States laboured together to prepare the building foundation at the site on the corner of Finch Street and Birch Tree Hill Road. Young and old, men and woman all worked happily together on the concrete work, the landscaping and some worked behind the scenes feeding all the workers.
‘We are very grateful for the willing spirit of both our local brothers and sisters and those from overseas who are lending us a hand in building our Kingdom Hall’ said Stuart Johnston, local building committee chairman and elder in the West Bay Congregation.
The building itself is scheduled to be constructed next week when over 200 volunteer workers will be coming in from the Maryland area to assist.
In 1999, the George Town Kingdom Hall at the corner of Keturah Street and Walkers Road was built in less than a week by volunteer workers.
There are over 6.5 million Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide in over 235 lands.
