Parents to their daughter: Come back to the Amish
May 4, 2005
Letter From Lovina's Mother:
...oh, we'd so much love to have your children. It hurts so deep in our hearts to hear what you are doing! Just think what you are doing, just THINK, to put that electricity in the house. Oh, I'd be afraid to have such in my house. Really, I would be afraid to have it. What would God say? The parents, our grandparents, none were taught that way. But we were taught it's sinful to leave the faith we were taught and that it is not right in God's way to be different.
You told us you'd go to a less liberal church but it is not the truth as is no less liberal church to drive automobiles. Lovina, you can't drive a van or anything like that. No you can't, you can't. Do not let Satan let you do it you can't feel happy and free if you do it. Oh please don't do it! It makes me cry. I hope I can do my crying here on earth. But afraid you have it later.
Don't hope we ever have to see you in different clothe then your Amish clothe. I heard Ruth has a different cap. Oh, Lovina, you can't feel free and happy. And at that, you make other people unhappy too. We are fasting and praying for you, hoping you can see it before to late and repent.
Letter From Lovina's Father:
Oh, you may not go on like you are doing. Oh please, oh please, do think and do repent. Just how can you think your little children can realize what baptism is now, if you think you couldn't realize when you were 18.
Now if you wasn't learned anything different of what you are doing it might be a chance for you to see heaven, but not this way! Only Hell. We heard you have a van and electric what is that if it is not of the world?
P.S. Who knows to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin. And you knew and we knew that you know better.
You know you are not doing right. So that means sin!
