So there's this Baptist church in Oklahoma that puts on a yearly summer youth camp to encourage teens to connect more with God. Last year the camp included a shooting competition. Well apparently a local news channel reported that the church wanted to really encourage turnout this year, so they spent $800 to buy an AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle to give away to some lucky camp goer.
Yes, an AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle:
To give to a Christian teen summer camper. Or at least to a teen who puts up with the camp in order to get a free assault rifle
Controversy ensued and the giveaway was suddenly canceled because the guy that ran the competition, Jim Vineyard "injured his foot", and wasn't able to come. The church then denied that they had bought a gun for $800.
However, God intervened, because according to the camp website, someone donated a shotgun to the church camp so that the shooting competition/giveaway could continue.
God works in mysterious ways.
