A heavily damaged Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's witnesses. Martin (Dutch side) after hurricane Irma. ??????

Recommended Posts

Don't worry ... remember in 2014 when they collected an average of $16 from every Brother and Sister on the planet to cover such things in full?

I probably missed the mid-week meetings where this was done in 2015 and 2016, and if precedent follows, the NEXT $16 collection won't be until this coming November.

However, It might have all changed and I missed it.

That, and/or their multi-billion dollar stock portfolio which can be liquidated is MORE that enough to cover EVERY damaged Kingdom Hall, and other Company property there is ...

No problemo!

      Latest News | Hurricane Irma and Earthquake in Mexico
      Hurricane Irma: the Hurricane, which touched land on September 5, 2017, is one of the most powerful in the Atlantic. He has already ravaged many Caribbean Islands. According to reports that have been received so far, no brother has been killed or injured. A Kingdom Hall in la désirade (Guadalupe), a Kingdom Hall in San Bartolomé and an Assembly Hall in San Martin have been damaged.
      The Island of Barbuda has been one of the most affected. It is estimated that 50 per cent of the inhabitants of the island have become homeless. The government has ordered to evacuate all people, including 11 of our brothers, and to take them to the Island of Antigua as a preventive measure, as hurricane José is expected to hit the Caribbean this weekend.
      The Brothers have launched several initiatives to take care of relief efforts while Hurricane Irma continues to move towards the Bahamas, Cuba and the South-East of the United States. This includes the search for accommodation for the brothers who can be evicted.
      Earthquake In Mexico: last Thursday, September 7, an earthquake of magnitude 8,2 shook the South Pacific Coast of Mexico. It is the most powerful earthquake in Mexico over the last century, and at least 45 people have died. Unfortunately, we have received confirmation that a brother and two sisters have lost their lives.
      In addition, the first reports indicate that the houses of many brothers and several Kingdom Halls have been damaged or destroyed. Damage has also occurred in two Assembly Halls of the State of Chiapas. More detailed assessments are being carried out.
      We continue to pray for our brothers and sisters, sure that Jehovah will comfort them and give them strength (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17).

      Hurricane Irma: Storm makes landfall on Florida''s west coast
    • By Queen Esther
      HURRICANE IRMA... Â Â Â Â ( by  Brother  Roger Dominique Bamps )
      The storm, which made landfall on September 5, 2017, is one of the strongest hurricanes ever measured in the Atlantic.
      It has already devastated many islands in the Caribbean.
      At this time, none of our brothers and sisters have been reported injured or killed in the storm.
      One Kingdom Hall in La Désirade, Guadeloupe, one Kingdom Hall in St. Barts, and an Assembly Hall in St. Martin sustained damage.
      The island of Barbuda was especially hard hit by the storm, with an estimated 50 percent of the island’s residents left homeless. The entire population of the island, which includes 11 of our brothers, has been ordered by the government to evacuate to Antigua in anticipation that another hurricane, José, will hit the Caribbean over the weekend.
      The brothers have put in place several initiatives to care for ongoing relief efforts as Hurricane Irma continues tracking north through the Bahamas, Cuba, and the southeastern United States. This includes identifying housing in advance for brothers and sisters that may be displaced.
      Late Thursday, September 7, a magnitude 8.2 earthquake struck off MexicoÂ’s southern Pacific coast.
      The quake is the strongest to hit Mexico in a century, killing at least 45 people.
      Sadly, we have received confirmation that one of our brothers and two of our sisters were among those who died ?
      Additionally, initial reports indicate that many homes of the brothers and several Kingdom Halls have been damaged or destroyed.
      Two Assembly Halls in Chiapas State were also damaged. Assessments are ongoing.
      We continue to pray for our brothers and sisters, confident that Jehovah will comfort and strengthen them.
      2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17.

      News Hurricane Irma
      Since last Sunday, all the committees responsible for the areas where the hurricane happened, advised the congregations not to wait at the last hour to be prepared.
      ??They tell us from Florida:
      It's crazy here in fl, so many cars on the street getting ready for the storm. We went to the supermarket yesterday and was flooded because they were almost out of water, managers saying that they would have to ask for an emergency supply at that rate. The Soup, crackers and good preserves were backed up, everyone having the same idea, not perishable! Long lines even though gas prices Rose 40 cents in our area, but now they're completely out of gas. My family and I have made plans to evacuate the north, but we have removed our emergency packs only in case the traffic is backed up, with first aid kits, extra food, clothing changes, multiple tools like flashlights, etc.
      The reaction to the storm has been to open your eyes. My family and I are not concerned about the damage to home that come as our lives are much more important than that, but for some people it's all they have. Material things are their God, so they're falling behind to keep their "priceless" THINGS FROM THE STORM AND LOOTERS. Some are simply not taking the warnings seriously, (sounds familiar? ), thinking that they are hard enough to ride a category 5. Hurricane makes me think of their priorities.
      I will keep you updated in the future, the storm must get to Florida on Saturday.

      Staring into oblivion: Bahamas and Turks and Caicos brace for impact as Hurricane Irma powers on after laying waste to the Caribbean and killing at least 13 on her deadly path to the US
      'Monster' Hurricane Irma is expected to make landfall in the Turks and Caicos islands Thursday evening into early Friday
      The category 5 storm has killed at least 13 so far: Eight on St. Martin, three in Puerto Rico, one in Barbuda and one in Anguilla 
      Extensive damage has been reported on Barbuda and St Martin, with more than 90 per cent of buildings damaged on both islands  
      Some 900,000 people are without power on Puerto Rico and at least 50,000 people are without water 
      The hurricane is expected to continue past eastern Cuba before veering north for Florida at the weekend
      Red Cross said it is preparing for 'a major humanitarian response' as UN estimated 49million will be affected
      Mandatory evacuations were ordered in the Florida Keys and parts of Miami as the scale of the storm emerged
      The Turks and Caicos are bracing for impact today as Hurricane Irma powers on after laying waste to the Caribbean and killing at least 13 people on her deadly path to the U.S.
      The powerful category five storm is expected to make landfall in the British oversees territory Thursday night, into Friday morning.
      Eight people have been killed in the storm so far: Eight on the French/Dutch island of St. Martin, three in Puerto Rico and the islands of Anguilla and Barbuda recorded a death each.  
      By early Thursday afternoon, the hurricane was north of the Dominican Republic, where authorities reported some flooding and the evacuation of several thousand locals and tourists but no serious damage or casualties.
      Skies over the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, were still clear just after noon local time. About a million people were without power in Puerto Rico after Irma sideswiped the island, but the damage was nothing compared to the smaller islands that were first hit by the storm.   
      More than 90 per cent of all properties on the islands and Barbuda and St Martin were destroyed in the storm, leaving thousands homeless.
      On Barbuda, more than 90 per cent of buildings were damaged when the hurricane's core crossed almost directly over the island early Wednesday - resulting in the death of a child. About 60 per cent of its roughly 1,400 residents were left homeless, Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne told The Associated Press.
      'It is just really a horrendous situation,' Browne said. He said roads and telecommunications systems were wrecked and recovery would take months, if not years. A two-year-old child was killed as a family tried to escape a damaged home during the storm, Browne said.
      In Anguilla, officials reported extensive damage to the airport, hospitals, shelters and schools and said 90 per cent of roads were impassable. 
      Photos and video of St. Martin circulating on social media showed major damage to the Philipsburg airport and heavy flooding in the coastal village of Marigot. 
      While the storm passed just north of Puerto Rico on Wednesday, the U.S. territory island suffered three deaths in the storm. 
      More than half the island is still without power as well, leaving more than 900,000 in the dark and 50,000 without water. 
      Fourteen hospitals on the island have resorted to backup generators thanks to the winds which knocked power lines down.
      Puerto Rico's public power company warned before the storm hit that some areas could be left without power from four to six months because its staff has been reduced and its infrastructure weakened by the island's financial crisis.
      President Donald Trump approved an emergency declaration for the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, allowing federal agencies to step in and provide aid. 
      This morning, the United Nations said up to 49 million people are in the hurricane's path as aid agencies prepare for a 'major humanitarian response'. France, the Netherlands and Britain have sent water, emergency rations and rescue teams to their stricken territories. 
      French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said 100,000 food rations were sent to St. Barts and St. Martin, the equivalent of four days of supplies.
      'It's a tragedy, we'll need to rebuild both islands,' he said. 'Most of the schools have been destroyed.' 
      Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the storm 'caused wide-scale destruction of infrastructure, houses and businesses.'
      'There is no power, no gasoline, no running water. Houses are under water, cars are floating through the streets, inhabitants are sitting in the dark, in ruined houses and are cut off from the outside world,' he said.
      French President Emmanuel Macron's office said he would go to the islands as soon as the weather permits it. Saying he was 'grief-stricken,' Macron called for concerted efforts to tackle global warming to prevent similar natural disasters.
      A Dutch navy ship arrived in St. Martin with vital supplies. And two Dutch military aircraft were being sent the island of Curacao and on to St. Martin to deliver food and water intended to last the population of 40,000 five days. The aircraft were carrying 100 extra troops to deliver aid, repair infrastructure and restore order.
      Meanwhile, residents on the British Overseas Territory of Anguilla said the island was 'utterly devastated' and looked as though it had 'suffered nuclear bomb devastation' while shocking videos have emerged showing the scale of the devastation in the British Virgin Islands. 
      The U.K. government says Irma has inflicted 'severe and in places critical' damage to the British overseas territory of Anguilla. Foreign Office Minister Alan Duncan says the Caribbean island took the full force of the category 5 hurricane.
      He told lawmakers on Thursday that the British Virgin islands have also suffered 'severe damage.' On another British territory, Monsterrat, the damage is 'not as severe as first thought.'
      Duncan said the hurricane is expected to hit another British overseas territory, Turks and Caicos, later today. 
      Britain was sending hundreds of troops and the Royal Navy flagship HMS Ocean to Anguilla, Montserrat and the British Virgin Islands.
