I've got a morbid fascination with the paranormal and death. Have always been interested in people's experiences, and love sharing mine.

Fun stuff:

I love animals, love being busy, love being out of the city. I'm a 28 year old female from Gauteng, South Africa. Married with six beautiful pets. I love being different. My dream is to visit the Pyramids in Egypt, the Coliseums in Greece, the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and the Great Wall of China.

A Ghost Dog? on 2015-06-18

So last time I wrote here I explained about my church experience. After that specific experience I encountered more and more paranormal events. Whether the camp opened up my eyes or opened me up to something else, I don't know. Luckily none of the events have been malicious or as scary as the first,...

The Church Camp on 2015-05-26

This is my first story, thank you for reading.:) For as long as I can remember, I've always had a fascination for paranormal. I don't recall any events when I was a child, but had several experiences as a young teen and more growing up. The first experience that I can really pinpoint was at a ch...

Sorry to hear about your father, but it must be lovely to know that your father is there in spirit.

Hi guys! Thanks for the replies and apologies for my late reply. I never got any notification of any replies so I never came back to the story!

The living residual makes sense... I'm pretty sure that dog must have walked up and down those stairs many, many times during her life. Unfortunately the poor girl has since died and my father moved out of the house, but I seemed to be the only one that experienced it.

But it's very interesting to know about living residual. I never knew such a thing existed!

Your story reminds me of that horror with Joshua Jackson, where he has the ghost on his shoulders. I'm sorry for her miscarriage, although because of her situation it's probably for the best (as bad as that sounds). Is there no way that you can speak to her about it, as much as she may think you are crazy? She could maybe get help then?
MaskedRosarie, please stop playing with the board. Those things are bad news, everyone knows this.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, I feel very sorry for Mishtee who felt the only answer to her problem was suicide. Do her parents ever mention seeing her? Can they perhaps help her to move on by performing some sort of ritual?
I imagine a lot of old folk die there and any never really leave. It's a bit sad, actually, that they can't move on from the place. I always wonder if there are multiple ghosts in an area or building, do they know there are other ghosts there and do they talk to each other, or are they constantly alone. Anyway, it's not fun seeing a ghost, but as long as they are not harmful you learn to enjoy their company (well, I did at least).

Hi Rook, thanks for your welcome!

I imagine the venue was more for like school tours, team building or maybe even weddings (with the lovely openness of it and the lake). It had an open dining area, a separate ablution block with showers and toilets, and then the dorms were in the same building as the hall. There was a little swimming pool and then the little football field. They probably rented it. And yes, it was directed at the Youth group of the church.

The church was quite fundamentalist, and the Youth group was trying to be a bit more... Funky. In house rock band playing the gospel music, etc. However there were quite a few adults on the camp as well.

With regards to the man in white, there was no obvious door on the side that this man appeared from. There was a little light outside the building, but we couldn't see a door. So there is the slight chance that there was actually a door but this man definitely disappeared once he got to the fence on the other side of the path. We didn't see him open any gate, he didn't fiddle with anything, he didn't hop over the fence, he literally disappeared before our eyes the second he reached that fence. There was open bush on the other side of the fence, no reason to go there if it was a living being.

With regards to the group in the field, could have been Voodoo, could have been sangoma gathering (in my country it's very common). We didn't want to stick around to find out exactly what it was.

There were quite a few of us in that age bracket and it was a fairly large group. The entire girls dorm was filled, I can't really remember how many boys. No children as young as 12 as the youth group was just for 13 year olds to early 20's. But definitely a lot of people my age (only a small handful older than 18, and even less older than 20).

I unfortunately can't remember anything else about the place that I can try find out about it, I can't remember the name, where it was... It's been 14 years since this happened and I didn't even look at the pamphlet properly, I had just given it straight to my father.

Thank you for taking the time to reply!

[at] TinAA, it happened so long ago that I can't even remember where the venue was... I actually never knew the physical address to look it up (and really, I was just so glad that the weekend was over that I didn't really think about it very much afterwards). We went to the camp as it was supposed to be a learning experience and a cleansing experience... There were activities that taught us to trust each other, activities that were related to the bible (can't remember specifics though), prayer sessions and many sessions where we cried about our hardships and unloaded, basically.

That sounds insanely awesome! Terrifying but awesome! Please do share the legend.

Yay! So happy this got published!
[at] bone_rose, tell me about it! I thought it would be a nice weekend with my church friends, it absolutely was not!
[at] Vasrod, I actually never thought to put the two together!
[at] RedWolf, it was a rams horn... I'm not too clued up on the Bible anymore, but I think that it has something to do with one of the scriptures. When I told my father the events of the weekend I wasn't allowed to go back to the church, he probably had the same thoughts as you. As an adult I would also have been horrified that we were exposed to such things.

Thanks for all your comments!
