Letter from Two Sister Workers

April 21, 2008

Dear WINGS Group:

This is an overdue, heartfelt “thank you” for those of you who created and maintain the WINGSfortruth site. We certainly identify with your care and interest toward children’s safety.

An unsafe child often develops into an adult who either feels unsafe or who is unsafe. Prevention is ideal…but early intervention is next best.

We are daily learning about our own limitations and our dependence on strength beyond our own. Thank you for being part of that support.

Our hearts are moved toward all who are suffering as a result of sexual abuse. One of the most difficult parts of dealing with abusive experiences is actually talking about it…the need for victims who are willing to speak up is so necessary in order help the abuse STOP.

If you would like to contact us, we would love to keep in touch. Feel free to post our email, but please leave our names off of it.

Thanks!

  1. I will add my thank you in helping those get through this trauma. Something I’m not sure is addressed, and will put it here under the sister workers remarks, is the welfare of our ministers (women) in the US and other countries. A relative, many years ago, was raped in Mexico by a gang. She bore the child, and Dr. Baldwin placed the child in adoption, and she continued in the work. She bore the sorrow alone, and I imagine many assumptions were made. She stayed as faithful as long as she could. She is gone, and her pain now has a balm.

    I was also asked to help another in the same position. In the US, walking to her car, and by those who protect our country. They did not protect our citizen. I happen to be in that city before she would be announcing she was leaving the work. Because of my background, it was asked if we could speak together. My heart yearned for her, as she left and raised a young child alone, with many who did not have human nature under control, making assumptions and saying awful things. Stick and stones do hurt bones!

    We have become a country with a culture that is all about the body and lusts. It is more horrific that many realize. No matter what, always be safe. This is not something that has just begun, but is something that is coming to light. Human Nature out of control, not submitted, watching things that lead to a hunger of such ungodliness is easily crept into our homes. It’s not about the God we serve, it’s about the Devil and his angles and all the evil powers we are fighting. Paul, I believe, warned us of the powers that we were fighting against, that we can’t hardly take in.

    May I make two suggestions regarding this and every issue that arises? :
    1. DO NOT make assumptions or false judgment. Better to ask, than to spread rumor’s.
    2. DO NOT ignore anyone who is suffering for or in a situation, even if you are unclear about what happened. I’m not talking of those who have been the awful offenders of these crimes,, although writing and telling them you are ashamed and are praying they can be right before God again, might help. We tend to let those flounder, when floundering isn’t the right thing. We tend to pass judgment, when we might not have the real story. Most are true, but some stories are not. Our culture has a problem with both sides…. being falsely accused, and committing a horrible crime. And, we tend to shun those who have been falsely accused, and it has been proven they are free. I’m not sure which is worse, but both, most likely in the eyes of God.

    My sincere love.

  2. Dear sister workers,
    Maybe instead of a thanks, an actual concerted effort on the part of your “church” would be more important, and maybe necessary for the forgiveness from your “god”.
    I am learning of the system of abuse for the first time some 33 years after leaving the “lie”. I am not sure with whom to be more disappointed, you or my family, some of who are still ensnared in the lies of your cult. You I suppose, you are the alpha and the omega of the lies.
    The list of the workers involved in molestation should be a short one, unless the lies did not stop; therefore the list of those that the workers had contact with should be short, not as short as it should be but doable by those that profess to do works of god. Even those that have been judged by you and shunned and excommunicated will be easy to list, its a small cult.
    Every person on the list should be told of the chance, however small, of molestation by the representatives of your “church” and therefore, representatives of YOU.
    Anything less is lip service, and without doubt perpetuating the evil, unholy, cycle of abuse and coverup.

    Sincerely, A person on your list.
