Subject: How to handle "difficult sheep"

A senior someone in the Chicago-COD chapter of UBF has decided to make their recent difficulties with a "sheep" public on Brian K.'s site guestbook:

Dear Shepherd Brain (sic) This is a missionary whose name is Gideon Bahn serving COD ministry which is a branch of Chicago ministry. I need some help from you. There is one student who was contacted by people who plant doubt about UBF ministry. She was ok, so she registered for the MSU BIble Conference. But how her father was contacted by them and want to investigate about our ministry, especially why we were kicked out of Nation Evangelical Association [He means the NAE]. If you have any, please, send me. I will get in touch and ask more questions and help. God bless you and your ministry. May God bless MSU International Conference with abundant word of God.

A debtor of your help and prayer,
Missionary Gideon Bahn

Several things here reveal how UBF has not changed at all since I left: the problem is never in UBF but in those that reveal the dark sides of UBF, a "sheep" is "okay" since they registered for a conference (that must mean they're not "okay" if they didn't), a "sheep" attending the conference is so desperately important that it merits this "cry for help."

I hope the student in question and her father see this because it reveals the skewed priorities and value system of UBF and the organization's complete lack of conscience about its deep problems.
