Contact ABWE and DEMAND your name be cleared

If you have ever been associated with ABWE as a missionary, even if you are now retired or have resigned, you have a right to have your name cleared. Until those who are guilty of these heinous crimes are identified publicly, all the men who have faithfully served God under ABWE through the years are considered “suspects”.

The men and women protecting the perpetrators need to STOP and let those men be “known by their actions”.

    Bold! I feel truly sorry for the innocent missionaries who have no idea what has been and is going on. Still, I would have been very angry and ashamed if I discovered something so heinous hiding in the closet of the mission agencies with whom I was once a member. I would want the guilty parties OUT or my name OFF the roster! Too bad we are so often influenced by the threat of lost support and trust so little in our GOD!

    My husband and I were discussing this very topic since we were terminated in 1993 for insubordination and the wording of the Simms Showers LLP closed investigation left it open for anyone in our category to be under suspicion. He was going to let it pass but obviously our thoughts were spot on. He has just written them and asked since they will not name the guilty parties then they need to name those who are innocent of these sex scandals. I won’t hold my breath for any outcome because when they terminated us in 1993 they didn’t even let us know but wrote our supporting churches. After months of confrontation they finally sent us a copy of the letter they sent our churches, of course we already had that as some of our supporters gave us a copy. End of story ABWE cannot be trusted. Full stop.

    My husband emailed ABWE yesterday and requested since they will not name the abusers that are either dead, retired or terminated than they need to name those who are innocent that are either dead, retired or terminated. He got a reply from the chair of the board and he said he would take the email in full to the entire board. I won’t hold my breath the request will be granted but if not my husband will email every individual board member to try to get our name cleared from any suspicion of child abuse. ABWE, either name the guilty or name the innocent. Full stop.
