I went to MP in October 94 - May 96. I did become a believer while I attended, but it never went anywhere from there. I didn't learn anything about God, God's truth, or how to live my life as a Christian. The only thing I can remember is the legalistic views of the Wills. I had nightmares for years afterwards, and I wasn't even singled out for attack by Miss Debbie, or Mrs.Wills. But I watched as other girls were unthinkably humiliated which I think Mrs. Debbie enjoyed the most. We were powerless, isolated, and without a voice. Yes, crying was not "aloud" because that would earn you bad attention from the workers. Most of the workers were just people that liked to make fun of the girls and hang out with the "borderline type" girls. (With exception of Miss Amy- she was truly full of God's love and I am thankful for her) - My mother would have never kept me there if she had truly known the tactics used there. I "pretended" to like it there for my own sanity and because I was told that if I was bad that my parents would keep me there longer. As for the money issue, my mother told me that she had to fork over 500$ right away and was told that it would go towards getting me clothes. My mother questioned them about the money when it was evident that I was needing clothes (in my letters and phone calls) and they told her 'we take the girls out to get clothes' (what a joke)- My mom said that she never got a straight forward answer as to what happened to her 500$ I believe like a lot of people that the Wills were greedy for money, and I will add to it that they fed off of abusing children in many different forms. I'm so heartbroken about the abuse that went on while I was there, and I had no power to stop it.
