first time posting, looking for old friends

Posted by on August 26, 2007 at 21:50:04

For a long time I was thinking about this web site, especially since me and my wife had left the group almost six years ago. I presume, a lot of folks did a good decision and had left before of after. It is weird to be suddenly out of the group with no real friends to have, as most of the people I knew for 16 years of "serving the Lord" were from the group. I used to go by name Steven DQ (Don Quixote) and I am from Poland. with us we had a lot of ups and downs, mostly downs as we tried to adjust to the society at large. Anyway, if there is anyone reading it who used to know me from Poland or maybe even Sweden, just write me and say hello if you care.

One of the things that had prompted me to write, is seeing TV show of Montel from US about Armendia, Sheena ( I think that it is the way you write, but mostly I remember her as a kid from H.A.P.P.Y.) plus Davida.

It was very saddening to hear what the girls had went through. I know for the fact, that if something like this would happen to my kids, and I have three, I would probably end up in prison beating the sh*** of anybody who would like to harm my kids.

I just couldn't get it out of my mind, and had to write it.
sorry that it is a bit chaotic, but there is so much on my heart that it is difficult where to start...

I hope you know what I mean...

I know that I was devastated at the time we decided to leave, as we had no money, no home, no job and were literally left of our own by the "loving leadership". It was very tough. Now it is better...
anyway, anybody there? I would love to get in touch with Polish Jan and Spanish Jenny, anyone knows their whereabouts? Or Richard, Kezia brother (yes, the famous Kezia from the "this little rag doll" Golden Age Production)...

a list could go on.... here is my mail

With best regards to all who had left the cult, ex-StevenDQ
