Hi Vicki  What a pleasant surprise.  How are you ?  Where are you?  How are your kids?  Mom , Dad, sister?  Its been a lot of years and wonderful memories.  Cindy, Kellie and I all have some good laughs because Kellies oldest daughter reminds us of you.  Thick hair and other things so we all think of you often.  Chubby has his favorite story of you and how you ate the cake on one of your cleaning jobs.  He tells it often.  I would love to talk  In person?  On phone?  On line? just let me know.  Love Linda and Family

Hi Vicky, Linda, Chuck (that's what we call him now)! Hope all is well with you. Doesn't this whole website make you think how great it will be "when we allllllll get to heaven"? Remember the song? I hope we'll all be able to catch up in person!

Hi Linda Todd, et al,

Here's part of a post I did last night to try to encourage Ken Fuller of St. Louis who started a thread called, "Frustration, Anger, Weariness".  This is (at least my version of) what has occurred in Springfield:

I have a testimony that I hope will encourage you (and others).  It is something that was almost unthinkable only a week ago:

Here in Springfield, there has been real clearing.  I went, for the first time since January 5, to the meeting of the "Geftakys" assembly here.  After talking to a brother (former "elder" there) and his wife Saturday, I had total peace about going.  Also another family who had left shortly after us also came.  It was intended to be a short time of discussion followed by prayer and praise.  What it became was each brother and sister there sharing promises and the burden on their hearts about what they are seeing and what is and has been going on.

Many of these dear brothers and sisters in Christ, up until a few days ago, did not acknowledge anything more than the problem with George and David.  For the most part they had kept totally away from the websites and had read nothing, not even Rachel's story.

Within the past week the two remaining "leading brothers" that had not recognized how they'd been internally affected by "Geftakysism" finally came to see and stepped down and/or left.

Everyone here in the Springfield assembly has now at least begun to see that there is a core problem that personally affects them.  They have all come out of denial and are at varying stages of seeing it.  There was unanimous agreement that the Lord has brought this assembly to a close.  This was all done in a spirit of love, friendship, repentance, liberty, hope and joy!

So there you are.  :)

In Springfield, IL., the lord is working and as Tim ;D  :-* said in his post there has been a real clearing.
The sisters have been a big help and blessing to our familey, with my recent neck surgery, by preparing food and keeping in touch with my recovery.

I'd love an update. Did any former members maintain contact with one another?

Hey, Rump (sorry, but you need a shorter handle, dude!),

Not too many Springfieldites here. Tim Souther pops in occasionally but he's the only one I know of for sure.

I'm not sure what you are asking???  There is no longer an assembly in Springfield.  I have close contact with one particular family there.  The more time that they have been "out", the more they have been able to recognize how much they were affected by George and his warped teachings/thinking.

The ex-assembly people there still remain friends with each other.  Some need more time than others to filter through what all happened, but for the most part, people are involving themselves with other churches, and are doing well.  Across the board it seems the families are appreciating more time with their children.

That's basically what I was asking, thanks. I know that there were some strained relationships at the end and I am wondering if anything has changed in that department. Also, I'm interested in the people who need more time to recover, as I am one of them.

I'm glad to hear that people are gradually understanding. That was something I've worried about for my own family, and since I'm in college, I am not up to date on their progress. Perhaps the healing process of others, especially other LB/Ws, will shed some light on the general process that my parents are probably going through. So if anyone has any information on changing perspectives, I'd love to hear it.

I just wanted to get the request out there, in case anyone has more info than I do. Thanks!

But the story has so many parallels to our (collective) experience. I'm willling to go by Rump. It's a sacrifice I can make for the truth. (satire) :)

OK, then, "Rump" it is! ;D

Hello Rumpelstiltskin. :D
I hope you are enjoying living in Oragon, and I hope you are finding some healing.  
There are some areas in my life and my family that are healing but there are other areas that will take time.
Trust is probobly the biggist one for me.  But I know with God nothing is to big and there will be a day, by his grace and mercy, that I will know His healing hand in that area in my life.
Keep your trust and hope in God, He will never let us down.
