Controversy

In December 2011, several college students attended an "English Camp" sponsored by Good News Mission after claiming to being misled they would be teaching English in Mexico. Instead, the students were allegedly subjected to religious lectures in ballrooms guarded by security personnel that discouraged members from leaving. One of the college students attending the event said "I was the victim of a scam.”
