  1. To Mose and the ex Amish community who helped produce “Amish: Out of Order”… You’ve already made a bigger difference in people’s lives than you know! There are many young people all over the world who have left fundamentalist religions or who are thinking of leaving and risking rejection by their families and/or the communities in which they grew up. You’ve educated the world on how painful the exit from a religious sect can be. This experience of young adults has the potential to resonate far and wide. I hope the series is translated into many languages.

  2. Thank you for the update. So happy to hear that families are growing and it appears everyone is finding their place. I have always been fascinated by the Amish community since I was a young child. Thank you all for sharing your experience with the world.

  3. Mose,
    Hello from the Badger state. I just finished watching “Amish out of order” on Netflix. I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, so much for doing this. This series will also help many people that are not ex-Amish so this is far reaching. If you are ever near Madison and need a place to stay you would be very welcome at my home

  4. Somewhere you updated us on everyone. You mentioned Michaela was married and had a baby. Is that the Michaela that wanted to join the amish in Sarasota? How is she doing? She is so sweet. Blessings to you.

  5. Hello Mose… I just found and watched several episodes of Amish: Out of Order, and I was so touched by the show and especially what you & the guys did by stopping, dropping everything & going to Missouri to help the victims from the tornado… I’ve watched a lot of Amish documentaries and shows, but they always gave me an uncomfortable feeling as if it wasn’t true. But yours seems so genuine and true. I really appreciated that you helped Michaela & wanted to find a good family for her to be with. Thank you very much for opening up & sharing your life and experience with cameras and the world, that can be a tough thing to do… I absolutely love and appreciate people like you and your lovely wife & family, and all the guys & girls that risked being on camera. I’ve always been fascinated by Amish culture and want to learn more about it, but I fear at the same time risking hurt or disorder to Amish just because of my curiosity so I try to learn from a distance. Your show helped me peek into that culture without feeling like it was an exploitive show. Thank you Mr. Gingerich! :)

  6. Dear Mose… I just finished watching Amish : out of order on Netflix and feel like I have lost some dear friends… I was very excited to discover your blog and find out that everybody is doing well. Thanks to you and all the wonderful people in the show, I learned a lot on a subject I’ve always been fascinated by and now realize I knew so little about. Do you by any chance have any books you suggest I could read to keep learning about Amish and/or ex-Amish?

    I wish you, your family, your ex-Amish family and your Amish family all the best.

  7. Living in non-cable land, I also just became aware of this show through Netflix and watched all the episodes in just a couple days. I generally strongly dislike “reality” shows because they never seem real. But this one was so raw and real, and so close to home, bringing up so many feelings from my own departure from the “true church of Bible prophecy.” The feeling of being a spiritual orphan, conditioned to reject things that might actually be true, and the divide it creates when your family thinks you are going to hell. While my experience is much less extreme, seeing you on your journey brought tears of remembrance for me, and I admire your courage to share it in a public way. I blog about mine, and that’s been hard enough. It’s much easier to hide behind a keyboard and talk.

    I admire so much about the Amish way of life. They have so many incredible gifts. I pray that they will give up their fear and control at some point and embrace freedom and love so that those who wish to make other choices do not have to suffer such a terrible separation.

    God bless you and your work! If it were not for the support of other “ex” people from the spiritual community I was born into, my life would not be as rich as it is today. You are doing an awesome thing – you and all those who are offering encouragement, community, and support.

  8. I just finished watching this series, and immediately did a Google search and found this update! I was very touched by this show, and wish the best for everyone involved.

  9. Thank you for an update on what I consider another family to me. I hope that you and the entire ex-Amish community know that you are loved and cared for by many of us all over the world. Living and teaching in South Korea now, I have a newfound respect for culture and community. Thank you for inviting me into your lives for even a short time. I take many lessons from all of you that I intend to share with my students here.
    Love,light, and prayers from the Land of the Morning Calm.

  12. Hello, I just “binge watched” the entire season on Netflix. Most of my neighbors are old order Amish and watching your series was very helpful. While watching, I wished I lived closer so I could help. Thank you for the film. There is not a lot on television worth watching. As others have written, you are helping a lot of people. As you have, I was raised with the fear of burning in hell and many other things. It took many years to realize love is the way. I’m hoping you can answer this question. I thought of learning German so I can speak to them in their language but they speak Pennsylvania Dutch. Where do I find material to learn the language? Would I find it in a library? Thank you for sharing your story. Also, thanks for the blog I was hoping for an update.

  13. I just wanted to say, I just finished watching this wonderful series. I was so shocked when Cephas died. I was in tears. You are such a wonderful man. I have never been Amish, but have always been fascinated by your culture. There is so much chaos in the English world, if only we would take some of the wonderful qualities of the Amish and live by them, we too could become a peaceful, loving culture. Instead, we are a bunch of judgmental, politically correct, confused bunch of people. well, not everyone, but a good portion of this country. Looking forward to following your blog.
