An historic conference for survivors of abuse and trauma on the mission field is being held in Chicago this weekend.
The event is sponsored by MK Safety Net, a group started in 1999 by alumni from a Christian and Missionary Alliance boarding school in West Africa.
"Abuse sent many MKs (missionary kids) and their families on an 'Unexpected Journey.' This conference will address actions and steps to help us move toward reclaiming our lives and breaking the silence," the group said on its website.
Beverly Thompson, president of MK Safety Net, talked more about the organization and shared her insights on the healing process for abuse survivors on CBN News Channel's Morning News, April 18.
