An Interview with Benji Van Fleet
If you remember, during the last week of October 2006 our team was preaching at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, and I wrote in my report:
"One professing Christian opposed us the first day, ripping up his own Bible in front of me, but later that night fell under the conviction of the Holy Spirit and fell on his face before God, weeping, and came a totally changed person the next day. He spent the rest of the week aiding us, preaching about repentance, and encouraging the work." (see: Texas Tech, Oct. 2006)
Well, after we left New Mexico for Oklahoma, we passed through Lubbock once again and stopped at Texas Tech to meet Jesse who was there preaching. It was great to be able to visit a campus twice, as there were many people we befriended and were able to catch up with. One of those friends was Benji, who, when we first came through, ripped up a Bible right in front of me as I was preaching, but the next day came to the meeting a totally changed person! Benji told us it was that evening when his whole life changed and Jesus claimed the throne of his heart. Glory to God!
It was wonderful to see him again, and it was our privilege to make this video about his story. Just another testimony of the Lord's transforming power in this world.
