For as long as these blogs are left open to public viewing after we post this information on VIA, you can see a lot of pictures of 2x2s associated with this new church building. It is located in Texas – here is a quotation to that effect, which relates to the ten residents being increased to 12 by modifications to two of the larger apartments to make them into two bedroom suites – “Assisted Living License with the State of Texas allows us to have up to 14.”
For a few photos of a new farm house that is located 300 yards from the Senior Residence and is occupied by “Hoffman’s” and is where meetings occur; and the ten residents of the Senior Residence and their names see our gallery at;
There are two basic possibilities with this facility. It is either a company or it is a church facility.trees of which were present. Now included in our gallery are two more newly found images – one a map of the properties
showing plans for location of buildings and the other a floor plan for the Senior Residence.
Now if the Pecan Grove Senior Residence is a family owned and operated business, that would naturally include employing qualified senior care staff. It appears that all of the staff of the Residence are 2x2s, which does not mean they are not qualified senior care employees. Knewman tells of a former “manager” (evidently a 2x2), and pictures several others he calls “staff.” And this all fits into a normal business operation.
However, since 2x2 Workers claim to have no salary, are housed, fed, clothed and transported by church members (laity) free of charge and receive money as free will offerings from “the faithful” only, they will have no income from which to pay for lodgings in a Senior Residence. And that means that if the Pecan Grove Senior Residence is a business, the fees for services it provides to only aged 2x2 Workers must be provided to those Workers out of those free will offerings from laity. And that makes it a church function. And if the Pecan Grove Senior Residence is itself a free will offering to aged 2x2 clergy (only) then it is STILL a church function with the addition that the Residence is a church building.
Evidently the contractor who was to build at least one of the houses on the property is also a 2x2. And with the apparent employment of all 2x2s, this begins to take on an appearance of a ‘church’ operation. But a company employing only 2x2s would certainly not have to be a church operation – it just begins to look like one from that evidence.
Pictured are two other 2x2s, employed in washing the Residence windows. These are said to be “visitors,” and many other “visitors” are also mentioned at the Residence. And if the “visitors” were doing work for the Residence without wages, then their donated time is as much a free will offering to a church as any cash donations would be.
Also indicated in blog postings knewman mentions that 2x2 Workers have held “gospel meetings” in the Senior Residence. This is clearly a church function that if no rent for the facility was involved, it moves the facility even closer to a church operation.
The reader of this information is left to decide for self as to whether to view the Pecan Grove Semior Residence in Texas as a church building or otherwise, but from our past experience with 2x2 conventions being a church operation that includes church funding of buildings on the various properties, we are of the opinion that the Pecan Grove Senior Residence housing and caring for only aged 2x2 Workers is as much a church building as those “machine sheds” constructed on 2x2 convention sites with church funds.
With some extensive Internet research we found some photos of the Pecan Grove Senior Residence during its construction in 2008. There are some property photos of an apparent pre-Newman house being constructed on the property that were posted on July 8, 2008. And the construction photos of the Senior Residence were posted on November 23, 2008. This page of photos was not easily found through Google, so I place the link to it below for the reader’s convenience;
Some of these construction photos will join the other images in our Gallery as they are the only overall outside pictures that we have found so far – still with no dependable address or location of the church facility. But these photos were also posted on the Internet by the same “knewman” who posted the more recent photos.
Along the right side on the blog at the above link are a whole series of post dates and related photos as the church facilities were in progress. It seems that the first post is dated April 29, 2008.
More necessary reading to research the blogs for any confirmation of some of our reasonable speculations in the above information. Here are some of the appropriate related confirmations in the words of knewman. I have bold highlighted those portions that confirm what we have already speculated above.
“We’ve had a lot of volunteer help this month, allowing the regular staff to get to conventions. We’re sure glad for all the help. Things are just getting back to normal with the staff schedule and we’re looking forward to having the workers return.” (October 28, 2009)
“The pecan harvest hasn’t gone well. A drought in the summer ruined part of the crop. Then we had hundreds of crows who proved to be a lot smarter than we are. They cleaned out the first type of pecans (called Pawnees) to come in. After that loss we got “poppers” which use propane to make a sound like a shotgun at regular intervals. These seem to have kept the crows away. But the squirrels and deer ignore them. There are some more pecans to be harvested, mainly “Desirables”. We hope to harvest them on Saturday. Even then, we’ll have far less pecans than last year, which was a disaster because of hurricane Ike! Oh well… we didn’t buy the farm for pecans anyway! (October 28, 2009)
“Our manager, Linda Ronhaar, had ankle surgery, and now rides around in a wheel chair. Her two employees, Lounell and Cindy don’t seem to mind.” (December 20, 2009)
“Keith Ramsden was back for a visit, with his wife Gail. Keith helped us at PG for a few months last year.” (February 21, 2010)
“Many of these folks were at our meeting at PG Sunday Feb 14th. Here’s a picture of the meeting.” (February 21, 2010)
“We’re in the process of getting an assisted living license with the State of Texas. Part of the many requirements is that anyone working with food preparation must wear a hairnet. “ (August18, 2010)
“Kathy and I took a brief trip to West Texas, and enjoyed a visit with Jack and Mae Nelson, shown here in their Ford Model A. Jack helped a lot with the building of Pecan Grove. (September 28, 2010)
“We’ve had a busy month with conventions and visits. In the middle of it all the State of Texas decided to pull a suprise inspection. We passed, and now Pecan Grove has an Assisted Living license.” (September 28, 2010)
“Unfortunately, Linda has decided she needs to retire for health reasons. We’re really going to miss her! My sister, Ronda Rosamond, who lives here on the farm, is taking over as the manager.” (December 29, 2010)
“Lyle Schober visited us today at PG and told us some very encouraging things. We’re glad to have him in Texas.” (i.e., the 2x2 Overseer of Texas knows of the Pecan Grove church building) (January 2011)
“It’s very dry here! A lot of Texas is on fire. We’re fortunate in that respect, no fires around here, but we’re not fertilizing pecan trees this spring, it’s too dry.
We irrigate from the lake, but that’s not sufficient for nearly 1,000 pecan trees. We’ve planted flowers, and as long as they’re watered, they do ok. Here’s a recentwork group working on the rose garden and some of the flowers.” (May 3, 2011)
“We’ve continued to have a lot of visitors in May. Our good friends, Dominique and Mireille Mille, who currently live in New Caledonia (some French islands near New Zealand), were here for a visit. This first picture shows them with Frank while Leona (my mom) is cutting his hair. The second shows them with some of the PG residents, staff and volunteers.” (June 3, 2011)
I suppose with regard to the quotations given above, for the benefit of any 2x2 readers who may not know much about the same church membership volunteer labor at such church properties as Youth Camps, Senior Residences and even the Sanctuaries are all a regular church practice. I am NOT intending to be critical of those practices in ANY church including the 2x2 church.
What I am intending to pointing out is that those other churches do not pretend and/or preach that they have no church buildings like the 2x2 church has done historically and continues to do -- in spite of the contrary evidence that they have placed on the Internet themselves. In simple terms, those other churches do not preach lies or twist the meanings of ordinary words into crafty half truths in order to try to deny what is obvious.
Finally I have located the Pecan Grove Senior Residence in satellite images on Google Maps in a manner that gives the perspective of its location in relation to Lake Conroe and the surrounding towns. I will add four Google map images in the Pecan Grove Senior Residence gallery . First I give the over all image including Lake Conroe , then the other three images move in until the Senior Residence is clearly seen at 100 feet. The Property . The farm house and barns  at 100 feet. The Senior Residence at 100 feet 
And lastly (at this time) in our research, knewman mentions that Pecan Grove Senior Residence is the same type of building as another at Redbud Canyon.
He also mentions some 2x2s visiting Pecan Grove from Redbud Canyon. So, I’ll try to locate a satellite image of such a building in Redbud Canyon because the information may indicate other similar and pre-existing 2x2 Senior Residences – i.e., perhaps such church buildings are common knowledge within 2x2ism these days, but not well known outside of 2x2ism (yet). Such church facilities operated by 2x2s of obvious wealth may have become a new form of 2x2 Convention properties, where remaining 2x2 Workers of secret substantial means may find hidden living quarters of their own (similar to other cult "compounds") as 2x2ism dwindles due to growing public knowledge of its historical infamous deeds - especially in North America.
If I succeed in locating such a building in Redbud Canyon I will post a satellite image of it in the Pecan Grove Senior Residence gallery.
Unfortunately, on Google maps the only “Redbud Canyon” in Texas is “Redbud, Canyon Lake, Comal, Texas 78133 .” And that leaves one to speculate as to whether that is the “Redbud Canyon” mentioned by knewman. But I will post that Google image nonetheless.
For now, until I might come across better information, this research project is at an end after about a week of it.
