Prairie Bible Institute Abuse Survivors are standing in support of former missionary kids who were abused at their boarding school run by The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Mamou, Guinea.
Emotional, sexual, physical and spiritual abuse occurred at the school, and it took years for survivors to find their voices and begin their journeys of healing. In 2008 the film, “All God’s Children” was released.
The film follows the story of three families who broke the silence, and after years of persistence, finally got The Christian and Missionary Alliance to to investigate and acknowledge the abuses missionary children suffered.
In All God’s Children, former MK (missionary kid) Marilyn Shellrude Christman (part 3 7:12) talks about being raped by a house parent. Marilyn reported to the CM&A that her rapist was Ron Israel. Her efforts to have him removed from CM&A leadership were in vain.
September 6th, Marilyn Shellrude Christman died of a brain tumour.
Israel has continued to minister freely in the US, with the blessing of the CM&A.
Following Marilyns death last month, Beverly Shellrude asked Dallas Alliance Church to remove Ron Israel from his position as the visitation pastor.
We have been pleading since 1999 for the C&MA leaders in Colorado Springs, in the Pacific Northwest District and at Dallas Alliance to remove him from leadership in order to protect vulnerable children and the elderly from him.
Only recently has he been forced to resign (he was not fired, he was allowed to resign). He is still on staff of your church Monday October 1, 2012.
As of this posting, he is still listed as a staff member at Dallas Alliance.
Marilyn’s sisters petition for justice to the Dallas Alliance on their FB was met with the removal of her comment.
Prairie Bible Institute abuse survivors are adding their powerful voices to this petition to be delivered to Dallas Alliance soon.
