SHEPHERDSVILLE - They came from miles away as part of a mission.
Their mission was to construct a new place of worship.
The Shepherdsville congregation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses had outgrown their space on Highway 44 East and needed a new place to worship.
Once the location on the Charles Hamilton Highway was found, it was time to build.
Over the course of several weeks, over 1,000 volunteers worked to build the new kingdom hall.
“It is wonderful,” said Joe Hurst, who coordinated the effort.
