If someone asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your body?’ he will answer, ‘The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.’ Zech 13 v 6

Too Close To Home

I was horrified this morning to click on a link asking the public to come forward if they have had any interaction with Christopher M. Dupea of Lakewood, Washington, in connection with child porn. It couldn't be "the Christopher Dupea" that I knew of....but after checking a few facebook posts, it became crystal clear that indeed it was. 

Other than facebook, I haven't interacted with the Dupea family in years. Ironically, the parents have supported my blog efforts with words of encouragement and design suggestions. 

Daily, individuals are charged with sexual crimes. Occasionally, I highlight other stories about childhood sexual abuse. I feel especially compelled to post on this particular story because this person is in my community, is from a large church community, and someone I knew. 

Any way you slice it this is devastating and life altering for his victims. 

Devastating for the criminals family. How will the family respond? Over the years, were there warning signs? If so, were they addressed professionally? It's still sinking in but I am willing to believe it, call it what it is, look into the specific charges and follow the case. 


Daily News...it's gone viral

Man arrested after allegedly receiving child porn from child's mother


I desperately want to see this done right.
Who are we praying for? What are we praying for? Exposure? Least possible attention? Where are you getting your information? Would you encourage other victims to come forward? 

I have one request for all involved, PLEASE, I BEG YOU, DO NOT BURY YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND! Do not be easily deceived! 

Satan your kingdom must come down!
