Word of Faith Fellowship responds to AP reports of "enslaved" members

I have a feeling this story is about to get very interesting.  For those unaware, the original reporting by Hemant Mehta, on the allegation of "slavery" can be found here.  The church has responded to the AP report cited by Hemant, 
We are appalled to learn of the allegations published by the Associated Press regarding foreign members of our church being “enslaved”. Many of these allegations are obviously preposterous on their face and they are all false. It is ludicrous that people now claim they were in an abusive environment at our church but admit that they traveled from Brazil to the United States many different times, returning repeatedly to their place of alleged enslavement.

Clearly, there is a group of people determined to stop at nothing in their campaign to destroy our ministry. We are confident that the truth will ultimately prevail and we remain hopeful that the public will see through these fabrications and see them for what they are. (more)
As Hemant notes in the original write-up, this is not the first time the actions of this church has drawn attention.  (See also the Matthew Fenner trial here.)
