Nathalia's Story

“In March of this year I faced my abuser. I’ve had a lot of life changing moments I can point to, but I believe they were getting me ready for that day. For years I had contemplated the idea of this. I asked certain people in my life if they thought it would be a good idea, but everyone was kind of like, ‘That’s weird, don’t do that.’ I’d had no communication or contact with this person for a long time. But in March I decided to spend spring break in Colombia, where I’m from. Before I went back I remember thinking, ‘What if I’m walking down the street and I see this person? What will I do?’ I was scared. I didn’t try to plan an encounter because I didn’t know if they were ready or if I would just be opening up this wound for no reason.

To my Adventist and Christian brothers and sisters, this message comes straight from my pastoral heart.

As a spiritual leader, I am so deeply concerned for our faith family in this time, locally and beyond. Some may ask, why do you write here where anyone can see this? The reason: we should not suppose that the spirit and deeds of us as Christians or church members are unnoticed by our neighbors and communities. They hear us and see us. They’re listening and watching, looking for evidences of what it means to be Jesus’ followers.
