369. Abundant Life Academy (I)
Abundant Life Academy is the name for several facilities. This article covers the Adudant Life Academy which were located several places in Mexico and Nevada.
In 2004 they were forced to close down their activities after incidents involving the authorities. As the founder described it with bible quotes:
6 months later Abundant Life Academy was hit with the biggest attack of all to date. Child Protective Services of Nevada had received a false report of neglect and abuse from a former disgruntled parent of ALA (late April of 2005). For whatever reason, this parent submitted several false claims (totally fabricated) to CPS of Nevada, who then launched an attack of epic proportion against Abundant Life Academy. On May 2nd, 2005, CPS illegally, without investigating the false allegations, removed 33 ALA students from Hidden Canyon Ranch. Due to the uproar from the ALA parents CPS immediately launched a strategy to cover up their actions. To justify their illegal actions CPS filed a series of false reports against Abundant Life Academy that were eventually found to be unsubstantiated.
“Brethren, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who because a guide to those who arrested Jesus. For he was counted among us and received his share in this ministry.” Acts 1:16
While the court let the case go due to a technicality, the authorities are not using their time on this area unless it is serious so it is safe to state that it could not have been fun to be staying there as a teenager.
