Tom Petters and Teen Challenge

Officially, I am not authorized to comment about this issue and I am going to honor that. However, a local news station has a piece on (formerly) our most generous donor. We covet your prayers and support.

  1. See, this is why I can’t work in ministry. If I saw that little speech, I’d stand up and call the guy a f—–g fraud and walk out. Then I’d be asked to pray about resigning over hashbrowns at some awful chain restaurant.

    But seriously, who didn’t know Tom Petters was a fraud? The dude was running a de facto garage sale in the meat aisle of Rainbow Foods. Yeah, that was on the up-and-up.

    Well, I can comment on it and it looks like MnTC may have been an unwitting participant in a money laundering scheme according to the broadcast, pending on the outcome of the full investigation.

    I work for Sun Country, so this all affects me directly, but my first thought was actually for MnTC. I heard Petters speak at a TC benefit a few years ago, and I’ve talked to people who’ve gone through the program, and I know his support has been instrumental. I hope and pray someone else steps up to fill the gap.

  4. I hope so too. I was almost laid off last week, and who knows what will happen in the next year.

    Hope things work out for you and Sun Country, Mike. It’s a shame Petters had so much underneath people that seems to have bottomed out.
