Looks like a good thread, Elijah.
We left the mission over five years ago.
Good luck with this.

Thanks Raz! Feel free to formulate important questions or comments even though it has been over five years for you.

Was a child of yours ever (physically, emotionally, sexually) abused at one of the NTM boarding schools?

Supplementary questions:
Did, because of your country of origin, skin colour or some other distinguishing feature find that you were treated differently from other missionaries?
Did you find that the assignments you were given due to this were different than what the majority would be expected to do?
Did your mental health suffer to such an extent that you had a mental breakdown because you were pushed beyond reasonable limits?
Did any discrimination you suffered effect your own childrens well being and/or were they subjected to similar experiences?
Did you find when you objected to such discrimination, that you were told it was "standard behaviour" for the majority to treat a minority in such a fashion, or were you ignored, blackmailed or threatened?
Did you have concerns about some of the attitudes to the indigenous populatons by other missionaries?

Bemused, Your well formulated questions say tons and opens a whole area of investigation in the area of aspersion, belittlement and discrimination. I am turly sorry for all you had to go through and put up with. Thanks for the input!

When I read what went on with NTM, I truly ask myself are these Christians that you are talking about, people who claim the name of Christ and yet act like the child of Satan? Did these missionaries have no love and compassion? Would they want their children/grandchildren treated in such manner? What kind of testimony is left for the children who are now adults let alone the people in their adopted countries? What a sad state of affairs! Full stop.
