SAFE: the devil you know!
My exciting transition home from a life of serving in overseas missions was a dream come true. I met and married my “miracle” man. After an exquisite honeymoon in our beloved South Africa, soon after our return to Canada, he transformed into my worst nightmare - a monster determined to violate and destroy me as a person. My place of supposed safety and security, my own home, became my prison house of abuse. This is a story of unexpected shocking tragedy that turned into a triumph of freedom and safety. I have climbed diligently out of a deep dark pit of abuse, with the hope and help of a very present, loving God and many caring people along the way who helped me survive. I am now wearing the badge of honour of a survivor who feels intensely compassionate for those in similar situations. I have earned my latest degree at the “University of the Cross.” My greatest desire is that many will be given hope and help as I take off the “duct tape” of silence on this very serious issue in the world and in the Church today.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Carolyn has traveled the world. In all, she has been to 40 different nations; caught in explosive gunfire and riots in Brikama, The Gambia; overcome by tear gas in Freetown, Sierra Leone; bombed on in Tripoli, Libya; survived a hurricane and devastating flooding in Monterrey, Mexico; led medical outreach teams to Northern Cambodia; and lived on the Mercy Ship ‘Anastasis’ for 5 years. She is lover of God, devoted to the poor and needy of this world. This desire and dedication has led her to serve in self- supporting mission work with Mercy Ships and Ywam for 12 years. Carolyn hopes to continue serving in missions with renewed vision and passion for abused women and vulnerable children wherever that may take her in the world. She is blessed with two wonderful grown children and one very special grandchild.
