FAITH HEALER STORY

A FAITH HEALER WAS PREACHING TO AN ASSEMBLED CROWD IN
A TENT. HE ASKED IF ANYONE AFFLICTED WOULD COME FORWARD.
SO ONE OF THE CROWD, A MAN ON CRUTCHES, CAME TO THE
PLATFORM. THE FAITH HEALER ASKED HIM HIS NAME, WHICH
WAS WALLY. THE PREACHER SAID, "GO BEHIND THE SCREEN,
WALLY." WALLY HOBBLED BEHIND THE SCREEN ON HIS
CRUTCHES. THE FAITH HEALER THEN ASKED IF THERE WAS
ANYONE ELSE AND ANOTHER MAN CAME FORWARD. "WHAT IS
YOUR NAME?" ASKED THE HEALER. "MY NAME IS RA-RA-RON-
RONALD," THE MAN REPLIED AND WAS SENT BEHIND THE
SCREEN. THE FAITH HEALER PRAYED AND SAID TO WALLY:
"OK, WALLY, THROW YOUR CRUTCHES OVER THE SCREEN."
THEN HE SAID TO RONALD, "RONALD, SAY SOMETHING."
BUT THERE WAS NO REPLY. THE FAITH HEALER REPEATED:
"RONALD, SAY SOMETHING." RONALD REPLIED, "WA, WA,
WAL, WALLY FE, FE, FELL DA, DA, DOWN."
