They a lot of time to come up with such a sorry report. Its looks like they could have written in 2 hours without even having an investigation.

Much of this report is the same as the Panama report. It looks like Theresa has a template for her NTM investigation reports: none of the missionary parents were capable of homeschooling their kids, there was rampant sexual abuse in the tribal villages, not all MKs thought boarding school was all that bad, no one back in those days thought beating children black and blue was wrong, some MKs said they had a good time at boarding school, blah, blah, blah ....

:x

More on this later.

Right now I am trying to enjoy Christmas.

Trying.

[quote="JerryBWhy even bother? I could probably tell you now what it's going to say. (I expect it will be pretty much the same "report" as what they issued for Panama, just change a few names and dates. "Nothing really bad really happened. Nothing to see here. Move along to the next school. Rinse and repeat.") :o :roll:[/quote]
Unfortunately, I was 100% correct. And as someone else pointed out, this could have been done in a couple of hours without any investigation. Such an utter waste of time and money, and the survivors are victimized again.

How about for the next school, NTM just estimate how much they're going to spend on their sham "investigation", have us write the report, and split the money up among the former students?

(Let's see if I can get the formatting right this time. That's what I get for forgetting to click on preview.)

In NTM's version of this plan, I am thinking the only MKs who would get to split the money would be the ones who reassured the IHART investigators that they LOVED boarding school, and have no complaints at all!

:roll:

(I bet many of those MKs have ntm.org e-mail addresses.)

Well, of course, because the rest are just bitter, unforgiving, and "not walking with the Lord".
