After criminal investigations resulted in the raid of a ministerial boys’ home last week, details emerging about the ministry and those who run it are only leading to more questions.

The Joshua Home in the 2500 block of Farm to Market Road 243 is under investigation by local and state authorities over allegations of “abuse, neglect, labor violations, fraud, licensing violations and human trafficking,” stated a Burnet County Sheriff’s Department release on Wednesday.

Sheriff Michael Hall of McDonald County, Missouri, gave Burnet County Sheriff’s Office a heads up when he heard the facility had relocated to the area.

“He called a few weeks before (we executed the warrant) and talked to our investigators,” said Burnet County Sheriff Calvin Boyd.

Hall could not be reached for comment as of press time.
