Sister Cindy = Best Street Preacher EVER

"You're going to a burning lake of FI-EEEER!!"

Sister Cindy was straight out of a
Flannery O'Connor story. She had been saved in a Krystal Burger in Florida by this traveling evangelist, Brother Jed, and then began her own travels as an itinerant street preacher, bringing the Good News to college campuses all over the country in the late 70s/early 80s. Her testimony was contained in a pamphlet entitled, "From Disco Queen to Gospel Preacher." She never failed to draw a crowd and could always hold her own against the inevitable hecklers. She completely won my heart - if not my soul.

She ended up marrying Brother Jed and having a
million kids. Read her story here (go down to Chapter 7). I have some video of her preaching back in the day - coming soon...
