So youth was tonight but things were quite a bit different. We have flood and freeze warnings going on depending on your elevation so church was more or less canceled. I figured some people would be there regardless so I went and we had like 30 students show up. I took them up to the sanctuary where about 4 adults showed up. We had service up there and things generally went well. More than well at some points as we had a great altar time with about 10 students and 2 others acknowledging they needed Jesus to forgive them. I would say got saved but I know the one has prayed the “sinner’s prayer” before but I’m not sure about the other. I didn’t get the opportunity to speak with him after, but I will soon.
Before and after service we were in the Youth building, but the thing is, something is dead in there. I have taken the place apart to find the stench but nothing. I went through cleaning everything today, threw out a bunch of stuff, cleaned out the storage areas, and took apart parts of the platform but couldn’t find the dead thing. It’s like it can move because after sniffing around it seems like it is strongest in one area so you tear the platform apart trying to find the stink and then it smells worse somewhere else. I’m going insane trying to find this odor.
- I can haz dead things.
I have had to deal with some seriously rank stuff when I worked at a Bible college. At one point the guys in one dorm put human crap in the microwave of another dorm and turn it on for a very long time. We didn’t try to clean it. We didn’t even open it. It went into the dumpster. Another time someone put a fish in the heat return. The thing is, every time I’ve been able to find the source of the malodorous prank, but it has been 4 weeks and the smell remains. I don’t know if it is of natural origin or if someone has somehow rigged a prank of epic means, but I’m gonna burn the place down soon.
It seems like there is some spiritual meaning I could draw form this but right now I can still smell it and I’m trying to decide how hard it would be to make the fire look like an accident.
I needed to address the reason why guys think it is so funny to make other people smell really nasty stuff.
