ABWE & Dr. Donn Ketcham
American mission agency Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE; Penn.), protected Dr. Donn Ketcham’s private and public reputation for over 20 years, by stating in writing and in private communication that he was dismissed from ABWE as a result of “moral failure” or adultery and by failing to report him to US authorities from 1989-2011, despite more past victims coming forward each decade and ABWE's knowledge of Dr. Ketcham's family practice in Allendale, MI.
