PUBLIC STATEMENT


Contact: Richard Stock, YWAM (Medicine Hat) Board President, richards@globalprayerhouse.com

It is with great concern and grave sadness that the charitable organization Youth With A Mission Society in Medicine Hat (the “charity”) advises its congregation and the community that it has filed at The Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, a lawsuit that claims the charity board’s former vice-president Antonio Baldovinos and spouse Christelle (the “Baldovinoses”) embezzled or misappropriated approximately $1,170,593.00 from the charity’s local bank accounts between June 14, 2012, and October 18, 2018 (the “Statement of Claim”).

The Statement of Claim alleges that the Baldovinoses used their positions of trust to secure protracted access to charitable monies through cheques, money orders, bank drafts, debit card transactions and ATM withdrawals, while concealing their activities through a complex scheme of false invoices and expense reports that prevented exposure. During that period, the Baldovinoses also received legitimate donations through YWAM’s offices in Vancouver and Kansas City.

The Statement of Claim alleges that the Baldovinoses so depleted the charity’s local bank accounts that in the fall of 2018 cheques began returning for insufficient funds. Those disruptions embroiled the charity’s remaining leadership in an intensive process that required time, money and total confidentiality to investigate whether fraud had indeed been committed.

Earlier this year, the charity hired a litigation firm in Edmonton after the Baldovinoses breached a repayment agreement. That led to the retention of leading national accounting firm MNP which in late October finalized a forensic audit that revealed even greater embezzlement and concluded that funds were not used for the benefit of the charity.

The Statement of Claim filed on November 4, 2019, demands nearly 2 million dollars in general, special and punitive damages. The Baldovinoses have yet to defend the action: the charity has agreed to a reasonable extension of time provided they remain in Alberta.

Inquiries regarding this matter can be directed to Richard Stock, President of YWAM (Medicine Hat) Board of Directors at
