Oh, yeah.

I had forgotten all about them.  I remember them now.  As far as I know we 
don't have any here in town.  But I have heard of them (esp. Witness Lee) 
many times.  I had just forgotten about them, and sometimes fail to associate 
the name "local church" with the movement.

Thank the Lord that you are free, Bro. Tom.
