Although the original MSN for Survivors of New Bethany and the Multiply site closed, some members archived all the horrific physical abuse and sexual abuse of girls and boys.

In August 2012, the Louisiana statutes of limitations changed. If you were molested as a child (under 17), the District Attorney can prosecute the adult for 30 years beyond the victims 18th birthday (48 and under).

aggravated rape and forcible rape can be prosecuted at any time (no statutes of limitation)

For four decades, Most of Mack Ford's victims thought we were alone. Via the internet we learned there was a never-ending list of Victims of every abuse imaginable, abused by male and female staff.

Facebook has numerous pages and groups for Survivors of New Bethany.
In late July 2013, I reported Mack Ford to the Bienville Parish Sheriff's office for raping me when I was 17 in 1977.

ADA Tammy Jump is investigating and Lt. Poland and Deputy Darrell Mills are investigating Mack Ford, his staff and family for molesting children.
If you know what happened to the kids the local Arcadians saw as they drove past the imposing 10 ft. razor wire fence.

State finally ended Ford's 4 decades of horrific physical and sexual abuse of children.
He should have been in prison decades ago. In August 2013, the Bienville parish Sheriff's office is investigating rape and child sexual abuse complaints.
He is DONE!

The District attorney in Bienville parish Sheriff's office (BPSO) is investigating 4 decades of rape and Child Sexual Abuse perpetrated by Mack Ford and his staff.

If you know any staff who had sex with girls or boys under age 16, let them know they NEED to call before the Knock comes calling.

If you were a victim in Arcadia, please call the BPSO and arrange a time to make a statement.

Considering that Mack Ford's grandson, Jonathan Johnson, was on the New Bethany Board of directors for New Bethany when it was still open, and has been the state director for Rodney Alexander's office, while at the same time, Jonathan's father, Tim Johnson got kicked out of Louisiana Baptist College on his ear for trying to oust the current president of the college, it makes sense why neither Mr. Johnson wants ANYTHING discussed publicly about their knowledge of what Tim's father-in-law, and Jonathan's grandfather, Mack W. Ford, did to the children in his care for more than 30 years.
Both Mr. Johnson's helped cover it all up.

I think Rodney Alexander and Neil Riser have some explaining to do:

Hope4KidZ, Inc., is accepting donations to help victims of sexual abuse and rape to report to Bienville Parish Sheriff's Office. Men and women from all over the United States became victims of Mack Ford and numerous staff persons, hired by Mack W. Ford. We need your help and donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. Hope4KidZ, Inc., is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, organized for helping children and adults, who are victims of child sexual abuse and rape. We thought we were the only children sexually abused and we were wrong! Staff and Mack Ford had numerous victims, of which I was one from 1976-1977.

If you know anything about sexual involvement between staff and children at New Bethany, or in one of the numerous states wherein girls and boys were trafficked for the sexual gratification of Mack W. Ford and numerous preachers. Ford, Clark, Eades, Arbitelle, Darnell, and other adults, perpetrated a captive audience of children and multiple victims remain walking wounded. Since evidence was destroyed, to date we are not aware of physical evidence. Every person's account of minors involved in sexual relationships with adults serves to verify the details of another student of NB.

Men and Women, who were boys and girls between 1970 and the early 2000's, have the ability to allow closure and a measure of peace for numerous victims of sexual abuse and forceful rape.

Although the New Bethany Homes in Louisiana and South Carolina are closed, the rapist and child sex abusers remain in positions that give them access to children.
The Statutes of Limitations changed in 2012, allowing victims who were under the age of 17, to report child sex abuse for 30 years beyond their 18th birthday.
Louisiana does not have a limitation on reporting and prosecuting a rapist.

New Bethany in DeSoto Parish and another in Walteboro, SC were closed by the state.
Eventually, in 2004, it appears Mack Ford and his family remain on the Arcadia property.
Survivors of New Bethany were trafficked for sexual perverts in the church. Several pedophile staff now pastor churches, head a Philadelphia Girls.Choral, and have access to other children.
We want them investigated and taken before a grand Jury but the DA, in an email, stated they do not want us to contact them!

All we know is to keep reporting until they have no choice but to listen to us.
Any suggestions?

And the Sheriff, not to mention the asst. DA can just lie, lie,

"No formal charges have been filed because (a) the Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Office denies that any of the victims ever appeared at his office to file a complaint and (b) because an assistant district attorney claims that the district attorney’s office cannot initiate an investigation."

I'm not a local but have been there recently. New Bethany (NB) closed in early 2000.
Local Arcadians, please keep your eyes open and if you see children at NB, call Sheriff Ballance or the state police.
La. State Police are investigating and the Survivors of NB hope a grand jury is convened soon.
