Help Stop Child Sexual Abuse

$80 of $10k goal

Raised by 3 people in 2 months


We are Dan and Jo Ann Wentzel and for decades we worked in the human services system. Our work allowed us to engage with challenging children and dysfuntional familes. During the many years we found more than 50 % of our foster kids and those in our programs had been sexually abused.The result was broken, fragile children who could not function in the world. They had so many trust issues and rightly so and were unable to be loved or love. It saddened us that this was case and even after retirement we felt God called us to do something about it. Since our background includes speaking and training we are moved to find opportunities to spread awareness and offer our help. To learn more about us - visit our website at authorjoannwentzel.com

Our retirement has been to an old, small motorhome which is quite unreliable. In order to complete the mission God has set before us, we need to be able to travel. The goal is to buy a newer, old and larger, small motorhome. If we can travel that way and have a place( our motorhome )to stay in we can offer services to others and they will not need to pay for airfare and hotels.

The Lord has called us back into action.  We are blessed with the skills and experience. We wish to follow this calling and complete this mission. Please help us with what the government calls love gifts as we are not a non profit.We need your prayers and support.Thank you!

Please read all the updates posted because many of them have statistics. Lots of people do not believe this problem is as prevalent as it is. Please take an honest look around. Though predators and pedophiles may be tough to spot, victims never are hard to see. They wear a look of sadness that never really goes away. There are many signs of sexual abuse and we all should know them. We want to believe that it is not true. We reason that it can never be certain groups of people that act this way, but pedophiles come from all walks of life.

Please help get this campaign moving. Every donation of any size gets us closer to the mission God has set before us. We cannot do it alone.

This cause is so important and the only way the mission can begin is if donations start. If you want to help save the children, please donate. I have turned it over to God and he will decide if the plan is his.

It is apparent I am unable to get this campaign going by myself. I do not know how to promote it either. I am turning this entire project over to God. If he wants Dan and I to proceed with it, he will provide the means and the donators. If he does not wish it to happen, he will open another door for us. Please pray that we are smart enough to understand his decision so we can do his will.Thank you.

According to Good Therapy.org, There are many behavioral and other signs of sexual abuse. These are just a few-depression, anxiety, self-harm, unexplained fear of particular person or places, sexual acting out, nightmares, posttraumatic stress, personality disruptions, attachment disruptions, and certain triggers present. Abused children develop into adults with issues. Please be an angel and send a gift of love to help us start our mission.
