Brother Ray,

I have hesitated to write because I tried to talk to you years ago and you turned away from me then. I did all the scriptural steps to try and make things right with Lloyd Goodwin and he would not hear me. My hands are free from his blood.

I would like to make "one last plea" to you to do the right thing. My heart felt prayer is that there is one "spark" of conscience left in you that would cause you to turn and do what is right. I know that this has to be extremely hard for you and that is as it should be since you have made it hard for so many others. I am not writing this to intimidate or harass you but as a sincere attempt to make you fall on your knees before God and then repent to all those that you have harmed. I do not ask for your repentance to me but to these young people whose lives have been shredded and torn.

My children did not spend as much time there as some of these others but their lives were affected in such a way that they will never forget it. Abuse in the name of God is something that a person never gets over. Your trust is gone forever in church because you gave "everything." Glenn remembers the "beatings" that he got and didn't understand. Pam remembers being molested during the school day by one of the teenage boys, time after time and threatened if she ever told. Jeremie was hurt so badly that last year of school that he will never get over it. The rejection was almost unbearable for him. You probably don't even remember because you had your mind on too many other things but he will always remember. Andrew Verwers will never get over what happened to him. I won't even mention other's lives that you could have helped but instead you followed the leader, Lloyd Goodwin.

YOU are responsible for these things and I know that you have never made things right with them. I am responsible to a certain extent because I did not have enough discernment to know better. I just thought I was doing the right thing. I was an obedient little Christian. I'm ashamed and sorry and I have asked my children many times to forgive me. Even with all of the problems that they've had in this life, I have three of the most honest hearted kids that ever lived and I have some wonderful stepchildren. They are going to make it. The kids who had a strong will and a mind of their own were the ones who suffered the most. Some suffered in silence because of fear.

I've heard all the ones who say that Brother Ray has changed and he's repented and etc... But what about these young people that I've heard and talked to since Michael put up this web site who say that you never repented to them? Don't they deserve it because they don't go to your church? I know you have a whole lot to lose and truth be known, you deserve to lose it all but if you would make things right, NOW, it would be a lot easier in the long run. At least you would have a chance with God and you might not have to go to jail. But ignoring Michael and hanging up on him was not the right thing to do. He came to you and gave you that chance and you didn't take it. You need to tell your wife and your daughter the truth and repent with all your heart before it is too late. What if we were taught wrong and there really is a hell? Just a question.

You have no right to be in the ministry and in the position as principle of a school. Haven't you learned anything by what happened to Tom Jolly and Lloyd Goodwin? This just blows my mind. How can people who sat there and heard Lloyd Goodwin say that I was going to die in a horrible fiery crash and be burned and charred beyond recognition and IF that didn't happen then "GOD NEVER CALLED ME TO THE MINISTRY!" He said this was going to happen within a very short time frame. He's dead and almost nine years later, I'm still alive. I thank God for life and breath. He told us that if a person didn't live past 70 or 80 years old then they died under that judgment of God. He was 67! What does that say? He died a liar. Am I happy about that? Absolutely not! It is one of the saddest things I have ever seen because God warned him for five years.

Once again, I am pleading with you to make things right. I felt that I had to do it just one more time. I could forgive you and I believe others could too. Selah.....

In Christ Jesus,

Wanda Mason

I am attaching a message that I sent to <..>. Can you "really" imagine <..> doing what he is doing? Whether he knows it or not, God gave him this mission. I know that he believes in God, it's just not the God he learned about at GAC.

At the end of seven days the word of the LORD came to me: [17] "Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. [18] When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. [19] But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his sin; but you will have saved yourself.

[20] "Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block before him, he will die. Since you did not warn him, he will die for his sin. The righteous things he did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. [21] But if you do warn the righteous man not to sin and he does not sin, he will surely live because he took warning, and you will have saved yourself."

Ezekiel 33:1-9 The word of the LORD came to me: [2] "Son of man, speak to your countrymen and say to them: 'When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, [3] and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, [4] then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not take warning and the sword comes and takes his life, his blood will be on his own head. [5] Since he heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning, his blood will be on his own head. If he had taken warning, he would have saved himself. [6] But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.'

[7] "Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. [8] When I say to the wicked, 'O wicked man, you will surely die,' and you do not speak out to dissuade him from his ways, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. [9] But if you do warn the wicked man to turn from his ways and he does not do so, he will die for his sin, but you will have saved yourself.

I am making an open request to Lee Ray. We have heard that he went to the altar and repented this past week. We have also heard that he has repented over the pulpit publicly. But I have a few questions that need to be answered:

I think that is a good start Lee, I'm very glad to hear this report but what I am wondering is what about all the people here that have not heard this repentance? What about all the young people that have been mentally and physically abused at your hands? Do we have to come all the way to Kingsport to get an I'm truly sorry, please forgive me? I have heard no one here tell me that you have repented to them. Do you have any idea the damage that has been done in people's lives and minds by you and Lloyd Goodwin in the name of God?

Do you remember when you publicly called me Jezebel and said that I was a liar and was going to be judged like Jezebel in the Bible? Do you remember standing back and agreeing with Lloyd Goodwin when he publicly threatened my life? Do you remember ignoring me when I came to you for help? You were an elder and pastor but you would not listen to a child of God's pleas for help. You may not believe this but nothing in this world would make me happier right now than to hear true repentance on your part. I would be the first one to shake your hand and Praise God in Heaven for another victory from Satan!

However, I will know that it is true when I hear it publicly with my own ears or even read it publicly, perhaps on Mike's message board. But even that would not be enough. I'm sorry, Lee, but after what you have done to God's people, you would have to step down from the ministry at least until you get some counseling and help for yourself. You have had a problem with pedophilia in the past and it's a known fact that pedophiles do not just get over it. A pedophile is any man or woman who molests a young child or teen. We have proof that you have done this, Lee. It's too late to deny it and the best thing in the world that you can do now is to come clean and let the blood of Jesus set you free and give you life and liberty in Him.

I've been told that you don't read your email, you just delete it. Why? If you have nothing to hide, why not just read it? That makes more of a question than it does answers. But I know that Lloyd Goodwin used to tell people that he didn't read my letters and that he just tore them up and threw them away. Then he would preach his entire sermon on what was in my last letter. All he was doing was trying to keep other people from reading them. It was a tactic.

I do hope you either read this or someone prints it off and gives it to you. Otherwise, all we who are up here can believe is that you are a coward and are just sticking your head in the sand. My prayers are with you today Lee and Alice. Please think about this.
