Yeah well my sister was tellin me this crazy storey that her friend from college had told her. It goes like this:
My sisters friend Sarah was a camp counselor at 'Camp Shalom' somewhere in Canada. It's a camp for inner city kids or poor kids. Sarah worked in
the kitchen there and this one Sunday morning she was supposed to go to chapel, but she was feeling really awful but didn't know why. So she satyed
in her cabin and prayed. At lunch she noticed everyone was just feeling awful and didn't know how to explain it.
That afternoon an extremely old woman arrived there by a taxi cab. No one knew who she was, and she explained that she just wanted to help out. Since
it is a very laid back camp, they said she could help out in the kitchen. Sarah worked with her a few times and noticed that she was quite bossy but
The next day they had this bible study for the counselors and the old lady came. She took out this extremely worn bible that had all these book
markings and pages all highlighted. She got angry at the counselors and called them bad christians and told them they knew nothing of the bible. She
claimed she had a friend who went to hell and came back to life three times. The counselors didn't really know how to deal with this so they tried
they're best to ignore her.
Sarah went and talked to one of the head counselors and told the counselor that she thought the lady was crazy and that they should try and kick her
out. After talking with the counselor she left the room they were in and the old lady walked up to her down the hall and started yelling, "I KNOW
WHAT YOU SAID."
The next morning two girls from one of the cabins came running and screaming saying one of the girls had been thrown against a wall by nothing. The
old lady was also making things only worse by screaming at people calling everyone "evil people." They kicked her out and she left in a taxi. They
found in her room that she had left a chair and hay, yes hay. I guess the chair simbolized that she was always welcome back, so the counselors burned
the chair and the hay. No one knows what the hay represented but after she left everyone felt as if a cloud had lifted and things went back to normal.
I guess another weird thing that occured to Sarah was that the lesson for the kids that week was "spiritual Warfare."
Yeah thought I'd share that story, kinda creeped me out. Heres the website of the camp. www.countrysidecamp.com...
