I was a student in the Wasilla AK location for about 6 months. The "leadership" was Kat Kirby, Erica and Andrew Downs and Ronnie and Tracy Vance. All had long since had their brains burned out on meth and all had a damn God-complex. The biggest psycho was Tracy who would claim that she never slept because God was busy "downloading everything about us (the students) into her head." Yeah, right. God doesn't operate that way. He's not manipulative like that. Most likely she never slept because she was high. Then there was Kat Kirby who clearly failed to pray the gay away as she was fired from the ministry then promptly became a lesbian again (no joke, chk out her FB profile). It also became apparent that she was sexually preying on at least one if not two of the younger ladies in the program. I could go on and on with the horror stories. The non-stop manual labor, the punishments for little nothing offenses like "making a face" at someone. It was ridiculous. Contact with one's family was strictly limited to a supervised once a month visit and two 15 min phone calls a week which could be taken away at staff whim. We spent all day Friday and Sat selling crap jewlery and T shirts outside walmarts to "earn our keep." However, with all the money we brought in from these sales, we still ate Ramen for many meals and were told to "be grateful." Wow, and just where was all that money going. Well, Katrina was fired for stealing and who knows how much. As I said, I could go on and on. Women left this cult right and left. The twisted Bible doctrine and harsh punishments and isolation was just insane. One day, I'll write a book. Stay away, just stay away and save your sanity.
