Donn Ketcham is FINALLY Going to Stand Trial

Just this week, WoodTV of Grand Rapids, MI, broke the news that Donn Ketcham, former missionary with ABWE (Association of Baptists for World Evangelism) is going to stand trial for at least one of his many sex crimes against children.

You can read and watch the news report here.

He, through his lawyers, tried to discredit his victim. He tried to invalidate her testimony. He denies what he did to her. She, on the other hand, remembers every detail, right down to what she was wearing that day.

Abusers always try to discredit their victims and invalidate them in one way or another. Always. Ketcham is using the typical abuser tactics and rhetoric. However, it's obvious to some of us.

ABWE is also mentioned in this piece concerning their cover up of Ketcham's crimes, and rightly so. Did you know that ABWE is still covering certain things up? All the men who were supposedly dismissed for their part in the cover up were sent letters giving them emeritus status. Yep. They covered up horrible crimes against children, then were quietly honored with emeritus status, which they apparently still hold. I've asked about this and no one will answer me. They simply don't answer.

Clearly, Donn Ketcham is still not owning what he did, which discredits any remorse he likes to pretend he has. I am so glad the judge in this case found enough evidence from his victim's testimony to move forward with this case.

Justice is finally coming to all his victims.
