Did Bill Gothard have a Concentration Camp in Oklahoma City?


Recommended Posts

I did not really know much at all about Bill Gothard until I dated an IBLP homeschooler in 2016. I found it odd that she randomly lived in Oklahoma City away from her family for about 6 months, and she never told me why, but that she worked at a motel. I was thinking "Why not work at a motel back home if you love motels so much?" but always wondered if maybe Bill Gothard has some sort of concentration camp that she was sent to in Oklahoma City?

I know this motel. Almost 2 years ago, I stayed in it. It was acquired by a retired missionary couple, and was dilapidated. Only I and 4 other people in the entire, basically haunted, building. Why? We were there for a wedding and the bride’s family had made friends with the couple that owned it. Apparently it has had many uses over the years for IBLP. Also, I am assuming you are using the exaggerated term “concentration camp” in lieu of “unpaid ministry”?

Isn't the In the Gap ministry in Oklahoma City? I thought IBLP homeschoolers were sent there to volunteer in that ministry. @formergothardite probably can answer. 

Concentration camp? No.

A member of Faithful Word attempting to denigrate IBLP is so deeply hypocritical I barely handle it. Seriously, if you're so concerned about ministries hurting and taking advantage of people, maybe you should re-think your involvement with Steven Anderson.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
          
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
