More info on GRACE

I just wanted to let everyone out there know a little bit more about GRACE, the organization we’re working with.  As mentioned above, their website is , and they just finished a major investigation into abuse of mks at a New Tribes boarding school in Africa.  The full report can be found at, the website of the New Tribes mks, and gives an impressive picture of what a professional organization GRACE is.  They want to hear the truth from all involved.


About Bangladesh MKs Speak

We are a group of American former missionary kids (MKs) who lived in Bangladesh while Donn Ketcham worked as a missionary doctor there with the mission agency Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE) out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

    Praise the Lord that this is coming to light! Unfortunately, this is but the tip of the iceberg has far as what has gone on there in the past and what continues until today; this has been covered up all the way up to the highest levels of the mission. The abuse goes way beyond what one doctor did and involves numerous national “pastors” who are still being supported by ABWE money and power and continue to leave behind a wake of devastated lives. Much more on this to come!

      Thanks for writing on the blog. You always have been special in our lives. You have taken a stand like us and have left the field. All your reasons I don’t know like you probably don’t understand ours. But we respect your decisions and I know you left hurting, disapointed with the home board also.
      We just want to see this put away forever and the ones hurt to be able to recover knowing it wasn’t their fault etc. We are praying for what you are going to say. I don’t have any idea but we are behind you.
      Maybe after all these years those hurt can get relief and help and peace. That is our families prayer.

    I praise the Lord for your support and encouragement, Phil. Thank you. We will move forward confident in the strength of the Lord. I hurt for the victims and the innocent family members associated with this story, for it is not fun at all to be reliving any of this. But praise God He is bringing it to light now. Thank you for your part.

    Thanks, Sue and Diana. What little support I can give to the victims is the LEAST I can do. I suffered through 7 years of the worst depression because of what I knew and because of what I experienced as a result of trying to tell the TRUTH to people who should have been interested in the truth, but weren’t. But what I went through is nothing compared to what these precious girls have (and continue to) experience. They have languished in silence for all these years! May God have mercy on those who have known about these things and have been in a position to do something, but instead have chosen to remain silent in the interests of “peace.” But what I have learned from the Bible is that true peacemaking often brings a sword. The prayers of my family will be with you all.
