Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!
Killing in The House of God: in 1999, he ("Jeremy" Jeremiah Neitz) stood up in the
Some 400 youth attended a rally and concert in
preparation for SYATP (see you at the pole). Among them was a young man whose life had been
unraveling...all sorts of troubles, including police run-ins and a pregnant girlfriend. Then
he lost his job and was evicted. Looking up from "the bottom", he recalled the boyhood joy of
Church. He met a youth pastor who came alongside of him and drew him back to church. At the
beginning of the rally, organizers had announced that everyone should be prepared for a big
The kids weren't sure (around 7 pm) whether to dive under pews or not when
Larry Gene Ashbrook slammed through the back door of the church sanctuary cursing Baptists
and firing his semi-automatic pistol. Jeremy and his youth-pastor friend dove. Blood from the
girl on the floor in front of them rolled toward the pastor. Suddenly infused with a sense of
indescribable peace, the young man got up, sat in the pew and prayed in full view of
Ashbrook...the pastor pulling on his pant leg. Jeremiah "Jeremy" Neitz then stood, on 15 September
1999, to his full height and turned to the shooter and said, "What you need is Jesus in your
life. Go ahead and shoot me. I know where I'm going when I die! Do you?"
Ashbrook sunk into a
pew as if he himself had been shot. Then he righted himself and shot himself dead in the
head...in the sanctuary of Wedgewood Baptist Church, Fort Worth, Texas. Three teens and three
adults had been killed on the spot, another died at the hospital and a number more were
critically wounded (finally 7 youth died & 7 wounded from over 100 rounds from two guns
and the blast of one pipe bomb). A large amount of extra ammo was found on him. Jeremy
refuses to take any credit, giving it all to Jesus as having worked through him. Can you
imagine the worldwide conversations which have had to occur following this...and so many
having to consider the name of Jesus!
2015 reminder: On 17 June 2015 at about 9 PM, we are confronted with the killings of 9 black people at their historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S. C. by another pitifully misguided, evil human...a 21 year old white boy, Dylann Roof of Lexington, S. C. Dylann arrived for thw Wednesday evening prayer and Bible Study meeting and was welcomed into the circle of believers. At the end of the hour, he stood and began the shooting which killed 9 wonderful, innocent people.
1974: In 17 June 2015 news commentaries, Dr. Alveda King (neice of Dr. Martin Luther King) reminded viewers that a black man entered black Ebenezer Church and shot and killed her grandmother, Alberta Williams King (mother of MLK) in 1974.
2009: Abortionist, Dr. George Tiller, was killed in 2009 inside of a church.

acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
