I remember that my family was putting up some UBF Korean's "sheep" (named Marshall) in our basement in the early-90s. He apparently suffered from depression, worsened by his realization of the cold reality of UBF in Chicago after coming from a different UBF chapter. So one Sunday, a half hour before the 3pm Chicago "worship service," he was laid up in our basement, not wanting to get up. Then I heard his UBF Korean "shepherd" in our basement yelling at him to get up, then yelling much louder at a "demon" to "come out of him!" Seeing as it was only a half hour before the all-important "worship service, I know that this UBF Korean was quite concerned, not about his "sheep" so much, but about the decline in numbers if this "sheep" were not to show up. So I guess that's why he attempted this emergency "exorcism" right in our basement. Such lovely memories.

This poor "sheep" luckily left UBF after this incident and, hopefully, got the help he really needed.
