788. Escuela Caribe
After the failure with a program in Haiti (number 399), New Horizons Youth Ministries opened Escuela Caribe in The Dominican Republic.
For many years Pastor Gordon C. Blossom continued to manage the program until his special attention towards small girls became to light. Then he moved back and continued as consultant so he could continue his hobby working in a more discreet role.
For many years teenagers suffered until a documentary was made which revealed the horrible conditions the teenagers were subjected to.
Then the state of Indiana moved in and closed their Indiana license forcing the church group out of business. Another church group took over the campus.
It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
