In 2008, my Girlfriend and I moved into our new apartment near DuBois Pennsylvania. For the first week, everything within the apartment was fine, until one morning, I was making coffee to get ready for work, when I felt that there was someone in the kitchen with me. When I turned around, there was a small boy standing in my kitchen, near the hallway. I noticed when I look at the boy that he “didn’t seem right”. I noticed that the boy was wearing “Amish” clothes and I could see the hallway wall though his figure. I stood and stared for what seemed to be forever, when he turned and walked down the hall. Upon following him, he was gone.
After this happened, I went into the bedroom and woke Jill up to tell her what had happened. She laughed and said that I just needed my morning coffee. I kissed her good-bye and went off to work. When I returned that evening, Jill was found cooking dinner and was very quiet. When I asked her what was wrong, she stated that she was getting ready to visit her Mother about lunch time, when she couldn’t find her keys. She went to the bedroom and upon returning to the living room, the bag she had left by the counter was gone, but her keys were there in plain view. She then walked around the kitchen and could not find her bag. When she walked back to the bedroom, her bag was sitting on the bed and it was dumped onto the comforter.
A friend of ours is a Christian man and is a Paramedic in near-by Clearfield. Because he lives close to us in DuBois, we contacted him and asked him to come to the apartment. When we called him, we did not tell him while he was coming, but that we just wanted to have coffee and talk a bit. Immediately upon his arrival, Lew began acting strangely. He was constantly preoccupied and kept looking down the hallway toward the bedroom. I asked him what was wrong, and he stated that he felt “a presence” in the apartment. I have always known that Lew was sensitive to the spirit world, so this did not surprise me. Lew asked me if I have been seeing anything in the apartment, and I told him about the “small boy”.
Lew began to walk through the apartment and, upon getting to the back bedroom that we used for storage, I looked by the wall and saw the small boy, this time, more solid. I said to Lew, “see, there he is”, and Lew asked me what I was seeing, because he was seeing a black mass, with the form of a Demon and the smell of rotting flesh. Immediately after he said this, the smell hit us all, and we all left the apartment.
Lew said that he would come back to the apartment and pray over the apartment. Upon his return, he began to anoint the home with oil and began to pray. When he starting to command the Demon to leave the home in “the name of Jesus Christ”, the objects in the kitchen started to move and the hallway drywall cracked the entire length of the hall. He walked down the hall as though “chasing” the Demon to the other end of the apartment. Upon reaching the end of the hallway, he again commanded the entity to leave. The smell of rotting flesh filled the entire apartment, making everyone gag. Lew again commanded the entity to leave, and upon doing so, the window at the end of the hall cracked and the smell went away.
The entire environment of the apartment changed after that. We never realized how dark the apartment was until the entity left and the light was again allowed in. We are so thankful for Lew, but know that in the spirit world, looks can be deceiving. Even when you think your seeing a cute little boy, it may just be a Demon, trying to open you and allow it in.
