For Parents of Abused MKs

There is deep hurt when a missionary finds out his/her child has been abused, especially if the abuser is a trusted fellow missionary.


This letter was written in 2013 after the author attended the first MKSN Conference in Chicago. At the conference there were many adult MKs who experienced various types of abuse as children: sexual, physical, emotional and spiritual abuse. These MKs represented many countries and various mission board backgrounds. Their ages ran the gamut, from 20s to 60s.  Letter to Missionsary Parents
