As a starting point to my testimony, and a crucial element which I vow to keep at the forefront is this: myself and our peer team members do not now or ever will, seek to condemn or vilify perpetrators of our abuses this includes any family members, who may have been aware that the abuses we experienced as children. No judgment or condemnation.
Do not repay evil with insult, but with blessing. Be compassionate and humble. – 1 Peter 3:8-9

We believe that through Jesus, we are healed, restored and set free in order to carry out our God given purposes here on earth. Our heavenly Father gives us the Holy Spirit who protects, guides and equips us, all we have to do is hand our life over to Him and walk in obedience.
May the Lord grant all your requests.
Psalm 20 verses 6-8
Now this I know:
The Lord gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
As Victims & Survivors of CSA, not only must we fight to find our voices, we must raise them. The act of being a spokesperson on behalf of the voiceless, those left mute by fear. Our words, our voices, our truth telling are urgently needed and necessary in these times.
We are privileged and honoured, we are the fortunate ones, we lived to tell the tale, many have perished along the way, or live their lives in the shadow of secrecy and fear. Just as helpless in their adulthood as they were as child victims.
We can no longer plead ignorance. We cannot evade it. We may spurn it. We may kick it out of the way. But we cannot turn aside to avoid seeing it. – William Wilberforce on subject of slavery
