Quote Posted by: typer Date: October 24, 2019 09:01AM My wife came from Iowa to work in the word work in 1976 after she graduated from High School. JRS talked to her and assigned her to the Blix House and then to the Living Word Building in shipping and printing. She had saved $400 which lasted a year. She would like to thank you for making meals at the Living Word Building, which was the onl

Thanks for re-posting typer's earlier post, Changed. And thank you, typer, for your insightful posts. That one was no doubt still inspiring me when I mentioned Gideon's 300. After reading what you wrote yesterday, I went back and read all of your posts. I'm pretty sure that our paths must have crossed in the 1970s. What happened to you and your wife at TLW is beyond the pale. We de

There still remain those who believe that they are the elite, the chosen few, the faithful, the Gideon's 300. They have mulishly refused to read Shalom's letters, or the thousands of posts on her Facebook page, most likely out of fear of being rejected by "Christ in the Flesh". Two days remain until the anniversary of this remarkable feat of love and faith. I suggest that thos

I took an ancestry test, but it didn't show any Satanic ancestry unless you count Irish. Aren't Leprechauns and Minnehunies sort of related? Which reminds me, those Minnehunies have certainly been neglecting their duty of protecting JRS' grave, since it has to be moved and all. ; )

Welcome 4Generation. As kBOY said, your English is light years ahead of our Portuguese. I understand you perfectly. I agree with your statement about the leaders never apologizing or repenting for wrongs they did. In fact, they usually turned the problems around so that someone under them would be blamed for harm that they themselves caused. The system is abusive and controlling, to say the le

Lenai, you're probably referring to Maryann Nagy and another young woman named Martha who were both deaf. That is a precious memory of them teaching you to sign. Your mom is Mel Bailey's daughter if I remember correctly. Welcome to the RR Forum.

Quote Posted by: Imapurple Date: October 06, 2019 07:25PM It was an interesting time. Rick couldn’t be in the room taking care of JRS because it was “ too hard for him” 100% complete BS. In fact he spent the whole time up at the studio having his affair with Shannon. That’s how much he really cared. Yet the fact JRS died left him with a whole bunch of lies he could tell young girls about

There are so many things that would have influenced me greatly to leave TLWF long before I did. I might have left had I known, for instance, about JRS' many affairs and cover-ups, or about G&M's relationship long before the wedding was announced abruptly less than a year after JRS' death. If I had known about Rick and others abusing children and G&M moving heaven and earth

Close your eyes and imagine that. Well, that helps to explain a hell of a lot of suffering. Disgusting!

This whole deal is still a little bit fuzzy. Was Kalona School District thinking of renting space in the Shiloh main building AND they would have to remodel at their own expense? I don't blame them for passing on that.
