T&T Council of Evangelical Churches disheartened over discovery at TLM

The Trinidad and Tobago Council of Evangelical Churches says it is disheartened to learn of the inhumane conditions under which 69 persons were found at the transformation life ministry rehabilitation centre.

In a statement released yesterday, the Council said the actions of Pastor Glen Awong do not reflect the values of Christianity.

In addition, the Council said it in no way condones his actions and those of his staff, and expressed hopes the victims will receive all the necessary counselling, medical and financial support needed for a full recovery.
