  1. Continue from here: What's happened so far: The Hodnetts relocated from Georgia, US, to Dundee. The traffic system came as a surprise to them, but they seemed okay with the local take-aways. They started visiting a church in Carlisle (England), and moved to Lockerbie. No one knows what happened to their initial plan to minister to the people of Glasgow, or why their youtube video mainly showed Edinburgh and the Highlands. The weirdness continues.
  2. Renee Bach was 18 years old and says that she knew nothing about the country when she first went to Uganda, feeling "called by the lord" to go there. Now she is running a medical clinic where she routinely practices medicine on malnourished children, despite the fact that she has no medical training and possesses only a (homeschool) high school education. She is being sued by the mothers of children who died in her care, and news reports suggest that more than 100 deaths can be linked to her negligence. Bach can be seen in pictures online administering injections and posing with a stethoscope.
  3. Disclaimer: I pondered for some time whether to share this story or not, since the family members involved aren't exactly public figures, although popular within their evangelical circle and quite active on social media. On top of that, I do not want to draw negative attention to the husband's family, who has nothing to do with their DIL. But I needed somewhere to vent, hence I decided to proceed and tell the story without naming names, out of respect for the husband's family and children. After all, it is the story that matters. This being said, let's get started! I am curious about
  4. I thought Rep. Castro (D-TX) makes an absolutely brilliant point with his tweet. "Activist" churches and celebrity pastors want to get all up in our faces about how Christians in the US are persecuted, but they sure as hell are not using their influential voices to stand up for the truly persecuted. And here ya go, celebrity pastors! Pete Buttigieg has even provided a useful Bible verse to guide you. *hmmm, just as I thought. Crickets from celebrity pastors. Joel? Joel Osteen? Hmmm, maybe Joel's prosperity gospel church is busy going all out to help those
  5. As there have been a few complaints in the past from our European members of the dearth of opportunities to Fundie spot Fundies wanting to convert you, I thought I'd alert you to the good news. Evangelist Ted Alexander is planning to convert you all to true Christianity in the form of the pure Ancient Baptist Heritage (Trail of Blood) faith. FYI, these are the only people who can trace a direct line to the earliest Christian Church, which was apparently KJV Only. Please pay special attention to the fact that these followers of Ancient Historic Baptist Faith have been persecuted muchly and t
  6. I searched but didn't find any prior posts about him. Dow was convicted of sexual assault of his daughter in the 90s. He and his 2nd wife opened an orphanage in Kenya in 2006. He fled Kenya after a warrant was issued for his arrest for the rape of girls under his care. His wife was arrested for child cruelty for forcing tween and teen girls to get birth control implants. Their church is of course standing by their side. https://www.nation.co.ke/news/Why-activists-want-suspected-American-child-molester-extradited/1056-4953110-11jtbud/index.html

    The Bergeys are in South Africa.

    I just checked in on the Bergeys and, to my dismay, they reached South Africa with their multiple children (both bio and adopted) in tow. Selina is the lady who famously wiped her blog of incriminating evidence when she found our critiques of her parenting and aspirations to run an orphanage in South Africa. The Bergeys have no qualifications except unaccredited Bible College "degrees" and "hearts for orphans." And she gives us an update. http://littlefishministries.org/behind-the-scenes-and-culture-shock/ She has culture shock, their volunteer visas were denied, and they see
  10. So I was boredly sifting through JRod's latest post and noticed a series of pictures with the Maulucci family, missionaries to Bulgaria. they have 11 children and have been in bulgaria for years. I found their website and facebook and was immediately sucked in. i'm seriously sitting here with a bowl of popcorn. i searched for them on FJ and couldn't find anything, so i thought i would share some of their greatest hits here and invite everyone to join me on this journey down the rabbit hole. My favorite post so far: The tale of their journey back to the US on furlough. In which the
  11. I just realized that the Hodnetts are about to inflict their vile presence on Scotland. Specifically Glasgow, if @Glasgowghirl wants to keep her eyes peeled for them. I think they need their own thread because they are quite disgusting, but we can also use this thread to discuss other missionaries to Scotland and Europe in general. I haven't checked up on most of my pet hates recently. The Hodnetts plan to leave the USA on October 13th, and are doing some last minute grifting for things like Visas, a shipping container, and set-up cash. They are still waiting for a sponsor for the

    CNN article about missionaries

    CNN has an interesting article about Christian missionaries. The author has worked in the Middle East to provide medical care, etc., and states that missionaries who go to other countries in the guise of helping them, but actually just want to convert them, are being dishonest and hurting everyone. He explains his opinions well, and states the consequences of many of these actions. http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/17/opinions/declassified-covert-missionaries/index.html
  13. Hi, I did a search of FJ, and nothing came up on this family. Fundies that have adopted 3 kids from China and have now decided to start an orphanage in South Africa. So they have sold up everything and are travelling/living in an RV whilst on "deputation". (Ie grifting) She also does parenting advice videos. There is quite a bit of snark potential! http://bergeybunch.blogspot.com.au/ http://perspectivesinparenting.com Enjoy edit to correct family name in thread title. dyac

    The Orphan Myth

    I think this deserves its own thread. Stressing family preservation, It covers everything from the inadequacies of institutional care, to the recruiting children for orphanages, and the serious downside of short-term missions to cuddle kids for a couple of weeks. I can't decide which other thread to put it on and it is relevant to so many. It should be required watching for all our child collectors, evangelical and fundie intercountry adopters for Jesus, voluntourists, and their supporters. I'd like to tie Selina Bergey and Miss Raquel to their chairs and make them watch it for start

  16. An absolute scumbag, rightly getting tried back in the UK for his crimes This is the major reason why I have such a problem with "independent" missionary (or teacher/NGO) jobs abroad, especially in developing countries. Without transparency, oversight, and regulation (hell, even with all those things), it's all too easy to have something like this go on for years. And this is far from the only case. But with any luck, this monster will be locked away for a nice, long time (hopefully forever) and he will perpetually have horrible diarrhea or something equally unpleasant as karmic punishmen
  17. So, I get these guys coming into my workplace every so often (I'm in Ohio if that makes any difference), asking to support their "youth group". They look to be in their early twenties, and usually are Asian. They are very polite, and always ask me to buy some sort of craft that they've made (today was window decor). I always say that I cannot purchase the item because I don't have cash on me (they said that they now accept credit cards) and the owner isn't in either and that they can come back and ask her on a day when she's in. And then they always tell me that they are "traveling missionarie
  18. Had to share this fake instagram account parodying Christian missionaries in Africa — totally hilarious. Some quotes feel like they were lifted directly from evangelical missionaries' instagrams.
  19. This was on the news this morning. Didn't see it here yet. Interesting story of a missionary and his wife who believe Pro-Life means rescuing frozen embryos. They recently gave birth to triplets. Thoughts? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2016/04/21/my-wife-and-i-are-white-evangelicals-heres-why-we-chose-to-give-birth-to-black-triplets/?tid=sm_fb
  20. In the past couple of months I've come into contact with two different families who are planning to be missionaries in North Korea, which I hadn't really heard of anyone doing before. One of them was in the logistics process of their move, and the other one was raising money for a "vision trip," which appears to be a vacation to the place you are planning to be a missionary to see if you actually like it before you commit. The families (and their relatives stateside following their secrecy instructions) described it as going to "Northern Asia" and seemed to think they were being very sne
  21. Here's an interesting one, not quite huge, so I'm not sure if they're quiverful (or just young and starting out, and not quite as fertile as the rest), but here's the basics. Family of four, oldest son with a chronic disease (Eosinophilic Esophagitis), in which they have shunned traditional medical care and decided to treat with the Gerson method. Homeschooling of course (though mom apparently was a teacher for some time). What's more, dad quit his stable job as a firefighter, and the whole family moved to South Africa to minister to the people there (teaching them farming and hygiene appar
  22. John Shrader is husband to Esther Keller, sister of Anna Keller Duggar (wife of child molester/serial cheater Josh Duggar). She is pregnant yet again, with their tenth (I think) child. The family has been in Zambia for over a year, and John has managed to save a grand total of about 3 souls, which means that he converted them from Christianity to the right kind of Christianity by tagging along to funerals and proselytizing at the mourners. He grifted a bunch of appliances (a matching fridge and freezer!), bought a super expensive SUV, and conveniently neglects to mention his grifted airpl
