Fear at Fanda

In the meantime, the stories of some high-profile abuse survivors offer hope for others who continue to struggle. Wess Stafford, president of Compassion International, revealed a few years ago that he was a victim of severe abuse at a Christian Missionary Alliance boarding school in Africa. Though the abuse deeply wounded him, he says it also drove him to a life of ministry to children. "I escaped what should have been the destruction of me and everything about me," he told the Colorado Springs Gazette last year. "I am useful. I am a tool in God's hand. It is a surprise to me and pretty much to everybody else."
