Why Conventions Have Been Moved

Here is one reason why Antler Convention was moved. Workers didn't like rape reported.

I prepared at Antler 6 of the 8 years I was in the work in Saskatchewan -- (all of them with Frank Thomas as the responsible worker for the preps ) so I knew the folks on the convention grounds very, very well - although at that time the children in the family were younger children(I remember when the youngest was born!). I was also in that field (with Morris Grovum) my last year in the work in Saskatchewan (1973) and had gospel meetings in the vicinity. The fellow that became the perpetrator in this sorry tale, was also proffessing at the time and he had grown up with his proffessing parents just a very few miles from the convention grounds - same Sunday and Wednesday meeting.

I knew that there were serious problems there (even before I left for Sweden) but never knew any of the real happenings until about a year ago now, the oldest daughter of the family on the convention grounds at that time -- now 35 years older and married with a (married) family in central USA sent me an email with her story. She evidently had seen something I had written somewhere on the net -- and decided to let me know the truth about Antler convention grounds. But she made it clear that it wasn't for the purpose of starting a new process with the story -- she just wanted to leave it behind. But seeing she knew I had been such a close friend of her family, that she wanted me to know what had happened. I am abit ashamed that I didn't dig deeper when I first heard about the convention being moved. -- The idiot I was, I just accepted the official version .. tho I should have known better!! In that, I betrayed them too!

By the way -- it doesn't fall under CSA -- as she was above the age of consent when it happened --- it was plain and simple forceable rape. When it happened -- as well as the enormous emotional crisis that she was caught in -- her dad was furious and anxious to send the fellow to jail -- but the workers under threats of all kinds, convinced him (much against his will) to , for the sake of the testimony (and his proffessing family), to let them (the workers) deal with it in their way. -- Super hush hush -- which of course placed enormous strain on her -- in her already horrible emotional situation -a teenage girl.

But in the 'pretend it never happened' environment created by the workers, it happened again!! This time she fled to neighbors who saw to it that it was reported to the police which eventually led to his conviction and his first jail sentence - This of couse upset the workers because of the' testimony of the convention' and the ensuing critisizm the dad came to the workers with, led to him being regarded as unsuitable for a convention and they decided to sell and move to Alberta.

The girl told me that her dad -- who has passed away now, never got over his remorse in that he had failed to protect his daughter (in his own home) when he could have done so. She also moved away, married, and has a (married) family in the US now )-- but understandably wants nothing to do with workers -- ever again.

Notice that the official explanation given was because of the dads 'bad spirit' -- And this is still the version of the truth that the friends believe in. It is one sick religion!!!!

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
