Hi Gayle,

I shared your email and report with the Diaspora, and we are all so very thankful to you for taking this step and sharing this with us. It was healing to many, and many have expressed admiration for your effort to make this right. We feel that you have been very sincere in your apology to us, and we forgive you.We can see that you’ve been through much pain in this, as many of us have been, and I imagine you’ve seen the betrayal and even shunning. On behalf of all of us, thank you.
We feel that the public needs to know this, and that the current staff especially have a right to know the truth. Would you consider sharing this original report with the GFA staff? So many on staff there are still heartbroken at the original response, especially since it has been used by leadership to “settle” all matters.
If you are able, you could send them the same report and a similar introduction email as what you sent to me. There are 270 email addresses total, which could be broken up into 6 groups of 45. I’ve already broken it up for you so it’s easy to copy and paste, should you wish to do this. Spacing each group out an hour apart will help you not hit any spam filters. Let me know if you need assistance.
Thank you for considering this. I know this has been difficult for you. Know that we continue to pray for you and everyone involved, for our Lord’s glory.In His Service,
