Form Letter for Giving Money to Workers
Here is a sample form letter to leave money to workers. A Codicil to will. How to sign money over to workers or their appointed elder.
What is a Codicil?
In the United States, a codicil is a document that changes an existing will. Amendments made by a codicil may alter, explain, add to, subtract from, or confirm – and otherwise amend a will in any other way, minor or major, short of complete revocation. It is subject to the same formal requirements as a will.
People in their last hours of life or at some opportune moment may be encouraged by a 2x2 elder to sign a codicil, leaving money or property to an elder on behalf of the overseers.
Inheritances are commonly left by 2x2 followers to the workers via elders. Sometimes children are left no inheritance unless they professed.
2x2s are expected to leave all or part of their inheritances to further the 2x2 Gospel (that people must belong to 2x2 group to be saved). 2x2 parents will commonly give money to the 2x2 Overseers and not their own children. Please note that the workers must give inheritances to the overseers and not keep the money themselves. Also, all the money the workers collect throughout the year it to be brought to conventions and given to the person in charge of the convention who gives it to the overseer.
They have no desire to teach the true gospel of Jesus Christ which is in the Bible. In fact, they want to get people away from fellowshipping with Christians and into the meetings.
Here is a sample form that was handed out in California to encourage people and show them how to leave money to an elder, who in turn handed the money over to the overseer.
