I'm breaking my silence with a mess of emotions re the fall of the frauds, finally.
Way back when I "escaped" with my kids it was a very lonely place to be knowing of all too many bits and pieces of the "crimes" that no one wanted to get involved, it seemed. That time in my life was very scary.
Gratefully, we are no longer alone with so many people willing to add their bits and pieces of this horrible puzzle - not a pretty picture, now that the truth is painted.
Reep, I really don't think the leaders believe in anything except their system to take advantage of trusting people and the sick delusion of their entitlement.
I am grateful for so many people, Reeicheap, Onion, Imapaurple, Changed, Onion, Shalome and all of you who have contributed so much.
The auction advertisement for Shiloh on the 23rd of November is bringing my personal story and dream of a church camp (that was all a con) is now full circle. I have great sadness and relief. I want to barf.
[I wonder what it felt like to witness the The Berlin Wall coming down.There must have been a mix of emotions over the freedom and the changes that would be coming... I think about the Iraqi war in early 2000.]
I wonder where G and cronies are hiding out. My mind flashes on when my daughter was in the army was stationed in Iraq and Saddam Hussaem was in hiding under ground.
When Saddam was found he looked like such a broken man all dirty and lice ridden. He had taken such power and control over the people he was supposed to care for as leader. I had moments when watching him on TV, after his capture, when I felt empathy for him a human being- his rein of terror was over- his life was over and he knew it. Saddam was vulnerable. ( G, the former dictator of TLWF should be feeling vulnerable... who knows? I don't have an ounce of empathy knowing that so many good people have war wounds.)
During the Iraqi War with Saddam captured, I also knew that I was still very afraid for my child, a solider, who was in a war that she did not want to in. I feel much the same way about the exposing of TLWF. There will be a lot of emotional adjustments to make for those who have been in our personal conflict with TLWF. Our children were fighting a "war" they knew nothing about - they were simply "born into the walk" and plunked into the middle of "war" to "take a kingdom" that was an illusion - to profit the "Hargrave Family Ministries"
With that said, "our war" to expose the truth is not over, yet. But, we are strong because so many have spoken the truth - the truth has set us free- and those truths has come together to reveal a very ugly picture. The wounded have PTSD as we in our time try to assimilate into the real world.
Our stories are true. G and Hench men can do nothing to hurt us for being truthful. We have nothing to cover up. If they tried to harm us, all fingers are pointing to "the chosen" few. I imagine that those who have supported and covered G are feeling afraid of being captured as well.
Thanks to every one who has shared the pieces of the puzzle. I understand how difficult it has been in so many ways.I hope we can see that the peace we hoped for is coming with the fall of a few bad people.
Please keep the bits and pieces coming - it will end up making sense so we can all have resolution.
