Today I received word from Doeurldy Cadet, that his book “In the name of “Mission Work” is available on Amazon.
To order click the appropriate link. Purchase in United States via Amazon USA: In the name of “Mission Work and in Canada via Amazon Canada: In the name of “Mission Work.
I have ordered my copy and am looking forward to its arrival tomorrow. Mr. Cadet is a tenderhearted young man who suffered at the hands of Jeriah Mast, pedophile sent to Haiti by Christian Aid Ministries USA (CAM USA), where he had access to countless young men. In his position with CAM USA, he had the power to use food to manipulate boys into cooperating with his advances.
Mr. Cadet also talks about the disruption CAM brought to the country. As a former staff member, he speaks as an insider of the organization, as well as a Haitian who suffered grave injustices.
In spite of this, there is no bitterness. Mr. Cadet speaks honestly, with grace. It is my prayer that his story will bring change and greater accountability to “mission work” and the way Western religious groups use their power against the people they profess to serve. (Some sincerely, but with many corrupt and greedy organizations doing more harm than good).
As one of Jeriah Mast’s victims, he refused CAM’s money in exchange for silence, and chose instead to tell his story to the world. I have heard his heart at various times, having kept in touch since our meeting in 2019, and have deep respect for him.
I encourage you to order the book and prayerfully ponder the implications to the spreading of the Gospel; what it has become, and what it should be.
Praying God will use this for great good and desperately needed change.
NOTE: I am not being paid to market the book. Nor did I assist in any way in writing it. My only role has been to believe in Mr. Cadet’s story, and the value it holds in Christian community so that we can learn to do better.
