Thanks, D&O.
It helps to have a place to express our thoughts without being repressed.
Your era in Bolivia must have been way before ours. Until the Fanda Eagles started writing, we never thought it was more than just "irregular" at times on our field. Now we have experienced our own repression and we KNOW that it is totally not right.
We would love to see NTM revived from the inside out and continue on---maybe a new name would be in order too! Certainly most of the leaders would not be able to stay on. Those under them (for more than a short time) and those from outside who are biblically sound would have to evaluate any who did.
Praying for a new day to dawn. AND for justice and healing for the broken lives.
Kari/ Bonnie/ Publius/ other VIA MKs/ other MKs from around the world---we have not heard from some of you for awhile. Please do not give up!

I was thrilled the other day when I opened up the conversation about abuse at Tambo with my mom. She actually listened and had a conversation with me about it. Agreeing that the staff were to blame, in the story I was telling her about, no matter how the child was acting the men knew better than to abuse the student. My first open conversation with a mom that would listen. It is a start. She even listened as I mentioned people that had been their friends for years, as being abusers. Wow, maybe I got somewhere with her!!

That is very encouraging! I am thankful to hear of your Mom's open ears and open spirit! She is in a very scary position, coming to grips with unnecessary pain suffered by children as a result of choices she made. It's very hard to be that Mom. I know.
I pray the communication will continue, and will be very healing for you.

I've been encouraged with conversations with my Mom too lately, with her actually beginning to understand what it was like for us kids to be sent away (abandoned) so young and how we were so vulnerable.
