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.
Additionally, ABWE tragically revictimized the victim who came forward in 1989 by accusing her (age 14) of adultery, while demonstrating extreme measures of care for her abuser.
