Workmen begin construction of Kingdom Hall’s foundation in West Bay.
Over 100 members from four congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses and a dozen others from the US came out last weekend to work on their Kingdom Hall.
The work teams laboured together to prepare the building foundation at the site on the corner of Finch Street and Birch Tree Hill Road in West Bay. Young and old, men and women all worked happily together on the concrete work, the landscaping and some worked behind the scenes feeding all the workers, the church said.
“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 during the week of 9 to 15 June when over 200 volunteer workers will be coming in from the Maryland area in the US to assist.
In 1999, volunteer workers built the George Town Kingdom Hall at the corner of Keturah Street and Walkers Road in less than a week.
There are over 6.5 million Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide in over 235 lands, the church said.
