Building a Kingdom Hall in two days - Oakland CA 1984

The Pre-build Safety Meeting - Bob Acosta

Two day Kingdom Hall quick build. Attendee Bob Acosta

Participation in the Quick Build project required mandatory attendance at the safety meeting.

One of the participants was Bob Acosta from San Leandro. Bob invited me to co-teach bible study classes at San Quentin State Prison (1989-91). Bob later suffered abdominal peritonitis from a ruptured appendix which seriously compromised his health. Bob, a good friend, died some years later.
