Mission to Amish People


To leave the Amish community is difficult—to leave the Amish church is unforgivable

Leah is seventeen and Amish. Like many her age, she has lots of questions, but the temporary flight of freedom known as rumspringen is not the answer for her. She does not desire Englisher fashion, all-night parties, movies, or lots of boyfriends. Leah is seeking to understand her relationship with God, to deepen and broaden her faith by joining a Bible study hosted by an ex-Amish couple. She wants to know why Amish life is the only lifestyle her family accepts, why the church has so many rules, and . . . most disturbing, how godly men can allow her best friend to be abused in her own home.

Our very own, Dee Yoder, is the author of this book, The Miting.  Although fictional, her story is based on real people and real stories of young men and women who left their Amish families and now live in Ashland OH.  It is an absolute must read. --Joe Keim, Executive Director of Mission to Amish People

The Eau Claire County case is the first of its kind in the state, according to Eau Claire attorney Matthew Krische, who says signing the permits is in violation of the Old Order Amish’s sincere religious beliefs and requested the cases be dismissed. Eau Claire County Judge Kristina Bourget heard about a combined hour of comments by Krische and assistant county attorney Heather Wolske before indicating she would issue a ruling on an unspecified date. Another hearing is set for July 17, with a one-day trial scheduled for Aug. 6.

"Joe, I did want to say how much we and our church enjoyed your visit and presentation with us. Many people commented on your presentation and how much it opened their eyes. It is my prayer and that of others also that we will be able to bring you on for support but of course that is not up to me. "
