the Hope of Survivors

Central California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

June 5, 2007

Dear Samantha,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and Steve for facilitating the one-day seminar to our pastors regarding Clergy Sexual Abuse.

The topic was timely and very well received, as expressed in the positive feedback from those who attended. The frank and open discussions, prompted by your personal testimony, presented a unique opportunity to get a view from a victim’s perspective. This element is what sets you apart from other ministries addressing the same topic.

I encourage you to continue providing this vital service to our church in North America.

Forward on our knees,

Ramiro Cano
Executive Secretary/Ministerial Director
