Galilee Stories: Samantha Santos
The summer I was on Core-Staff, there was one early week where I swear one of our very young campers was an angel. He definitely was in-tune with God in very admirable ways.
One evening, a couple different cabins were down by the fire behind the mail hut. There was a girl that just started sobbing uncontrollably and was completely inconsolable. Finally, I was praying with her and she was starting to calm a little. This boy came and put his hands on her shoulders and started praying for very specific things, about her aunt and her fear of losing her home. This eleven year old boy had not know this girl. Other kids started coming over and holding hands and a few started up a chorus of Amazing Grace.
This little boy took me by the hand and led me around to each kid and guided us in prayer; he filled me with words myself - they came without thought but He knew exactly what was on every persons heart. I’ve never seen anything else like it. It was simply incredible.
