BANGLADESH MKs SPEAK | The purpose of this blog is to bring into the light what has previously been kept in the dark, that is, to publicly identify former ABWE missionary Dr. Donn Ketcham of Allendale, Michigan, as a pedophile and to document ABWE’s cover-up of his crimes in the decades since his pedophilia became know to ABWE administrators and former ABWE President Wendell Kempton, now deceased, in 1989.
This blog documents how the American mission agency Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (hereby referred to as ABWE and located in Pennsylvania), knowingly and purposefully protected both Donn Ketcham’s private and public reputation for over 20 years, by stating in writing and in private communication with inquiring parties that he was dismissed from the mission as a result of “moral failure” or adultery and by failing to report him to proper American authorities from 1989 until 2011.

The comment section below is now closed, but is extensive (1,626 comments in length) and chronicles not only much testimony from key eyewitnesses, but is a window into the emotional struggle of former and present ABWE missionaries, administration, and most importantly former MKs as they grappled with the truth about both ABWE and Donn Ketcham.
