OK, I know some people will not like this and they will call it gossip but my wife and I are worried about it so it needs to aired out. We have one daughter that is still a JW. i will call her H. She is married to a non JW. She has 4 children. This daughter does not seem to recognise any dangers at all about her children. She invites anyone to her house without really knowing who they are or anything about their past. 3 of the children are girls and they attend ballet and tap dance lessons. They are only young, the oldest being around 8 years old. Today they were in a performance /show in Exeter, a biggish show that their teacher was putting on for all parents, grandparents, etc. I wasn't allowed to go of course as I'm a 'naughty boy' that left the Org. My wife went to the show and was surprised to find two 'brothers' there. One of the 'brothers' is a young single Elder and the other 'brother' is an old man that has recently been reinstated and moved into Honiton congregation. This older man frequently visits H and her daughters at their home and the girls call him Uncle Phil. He seems very 'friendly' toward the girls. H does not know where this 'brother' is from but he is now part of the Honiton Congregation which H and her children attend, here in Devon. It seems strange to me that this man has just arrived at Honiton Congregation and just been reinstated. My wife says he has a London accent. If I were still a JW I would ask him bluntly why he was disfellowshipped and where he is from, but of course I cannot do that now. I have his full name, so is there any way i can run a check on him ? Should i contact an Elder at Honiton Congregation and tell them of the concern my wife and I have ? If this 'brother' had been involved in a child abuse accusation would they have told H about it so that she could be on her guard ? Some on here may think I'm just trying to cause trouble, but my wife came home this evening and is looking very worried. It seems that H had invited both 'brothers' to the meal afterward and my wife felt unhappy about the whole situation. TTH will probably bring out the rule book again and say 'it never happens', but child abuse does happen and needs to be looked for all the time. Our daughter H seems to have no idea about the situations that have taken place, and in honesty she doesn't want to know. So how can my wife warn her ?
