Peoples Temple Collection; Box 18, Virtual item 3, Q618-Phone call between Garry Lambrev and Liz Forman
Spring 1976

This tape contains a series of phone calls during which Peoples Temple member Garry Lambrev tracks down and then speaks with a friend, Liz Forman, who has recently left the Temple to start a life outside the church. In his efforts, Lambrev cajoles, pleads, lectures, promises and commiserates with Forman. He speaks to her out of the longtime friendship that they have shared, but he also has a somewhat scripted message he needs to deliver from Jim Jones and the Temple leadership. Forman understands his motivations and his predicament – she was “used” by Jones and the church several times when Lambrev left the fold – and says she understands that she is outside of Jones’ “protection”. Nevertheless, she does not yield.

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
