Legislators ‘need to stopÂ’ working for institutions Dave Kohler, of Allentown, was abused by an ordained minister in the JehovahÂ’s Witnesses in November 1965. He was 9 years old.Â When Kohler was 17, his abuser told him to never talk about the abuse again.Â Â“So I obeyed and kept my mouth shut,Â” Kohler said.Â HeÂ’s been coming to Harrisburg for about five years to show his support for statute of limitations reform. Â“Individuals vote them in, and then they work for institutions,Â” Kohler said of the state legislators. Â“That needs to stop.Â” If reform is passed that would allow Kohler the opportunity to sue his abuser, Kohler said he knows what he would do with any money he could collect. Â“I will hopefully be able to afford therapy,Â” he said. Dave Kohler, who said he was abused by an ordained minister in the Jehovah's Witnesses in Kutztown and Emmaus, talks about his experience, during the demonstration for statute of limitations reform to the state's childhood sexual abuse laws at the state capitol in Harrisburg on Monday.Â (Photo: Paul Kuehnel, York Daily Record) https://www.ydr.com/story/news/2018/10/15/child-sex-abuse-survivors-demand-reforms-states-statute-laws-harrisburg-senate/1618630002/
The first "all witness" assisted-living home was opened in the USA two years ago. Legacy Place Cottages, formerly Jah-Jireh Homes of America, is a 40 bed facility in Allentown, PA that lovingly takes care of elderly brothers and sisters in a Christian atmosphere with a small staff of Witness employees. The facility is desperately seeking a cook, qualified nurses and health care aides that are Jehovah's Witnesses to join their staff. If you are looking for employment and are able to relocate, you would do well to consider working at this beautiful, loving, Christian facility in a lovely, picturesque, quite town about 30 minutes from the Poconos Mountains. If they don't find enough Jehovah's witness to staff the facility they will be forced to employ non-witnesses. If you have schooling, training, or experience in cooking, nursing or health care please apply. For more information go to http://www.legacyplace.org. At the bottom of the page is contact information and an employment tab to send a resume. If you prefer to call, ask for "Mike."
