Raped at Convention at Age 16

A story from a woman who was raped at convention by a professing man. She prefers to remain anonymous for now.

Thanks for your reply and the website link!! I have definitely gotten more joy and understanding since I have left. I read the bible because I love to read it now, not because I have to prepare a testimony...

When I was 16 I was raped by a 22yr old at convention and then again by my "professing" boyfriend. I didn't tell my family until I was 21 because I was scared. My dad didn't believe me and punished my for the way I was acting because I had severe PTSD. My parents said no boy of truth would act that way especially at convention. So they talked to the workers about it. The workers remarks were..."things happen, she'll get over it". That made me very angry and from then on I have detested the workers. My family always is on my case about doing the right thing. Well in my heart I know I haven't only done the right thing for me but the best thing!!

I am so at peace with my self and God now because I don't have to fear that I am going to go to hell all of the time. In recent studies I have had, I have learned that heaven is a gift that God is giving to us. Workers and friends make it sound like its such a battle to get there. I am glad to know that things are different.

Thanks Again for your support!

This was sent to me in July 2015. Again, the person writing is writing about their own experience and beliefs. I don't necessarily agree with their beliefs, but do believe you can learn from their story.

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.
