As a young teen, Gail was a victim of molestation from a Christian leader in her church. Then as a married adult when she was a leader in her church she experienced clergy abuse. “I thank Jesus for The Hope of Survivors’ website. It was very helpful to me to know that it was not my fault. I thank Jesus for the God-given counsel Samantha gave me.” God has given Gail a passion to share with other victims to look to Jesus, the true Healer, and she considers it a great honor to help them in the healing process (Psalm 37 and 70).
Gail has been happily married to Elgin since 1994. They live in Pasadena, California. Elgin serves as an elder at their church and is an accountant. They enjoy ministering to others through health ministry, family ministry, prayer and Bible studies. Gail served in her church as the Women’s Ministry Leader for about four years and as Health Ministry Leader for two years. She now assists her elderly mother who lives nearby.
