Between the months of January and July, 2o11, ABWE states on their website that independent investigators from the firm Simms Showers LLP
“conducted an extensive review of ABWE records and found other incidents of potential child abuse involving ABWE missionaries or MKs dating back to 1956. From that point, the independent investigators conducted numerous investigations on those historical cases. All of these thorough investigations have now been concluded, resolved, and closed.
On July 11, 2012, the investigators submitted their final reports to the Board of ABWE International, summarizing their findings and recommendations.”
ABWE has decided it best to not share the report, even though they claim that they confirmed child abuse in multiple cases. In keeping their findings confidential, they are once again choosing to protect the perpetrators and their own reputation over the protection of innocent children. Any and all child abusers should be identified as such in order to protect others.
In an attempt to verify that ABWE and their friends at Simms Showers LLP have indeed performed a thorough investigation and reported their findings to all appropriate persons which includes local authorities (in record time, we might add), we have put together a short survey. Please take a moment to answer 10 questions regarding the Simms Showers Historical Investigation. Then pass it along via email and post it on your Facebook pages so that each and every man, woman or child who has ties to ABWE has an opportunity to participate in this survey. (Missionaries – both current & former, missionary kids, pastors, churches, mission committees, colleges & universities, etc.)
Thank you, THANK YOU for standing by us so faithfully through the past months. We ask for you to rally around us once again as we seek for truth to be known.
