Henry Vellema: A Powerful Testimony Of Obedience Born From A True Love Of Christ!

After years of reminiscing on the stories and testimony of the man whose love of Christ and desire to obey Him exceeded any other I had met at the time, I decided it was time to publish them.  I first told the account of Henry & Bertha Vellema during one of my sessions at American Vision’s God, Government & Culture conference in Kerrville, TX this summer.   Henry had a powerful impact on my desire to sacrificially serve Christ.  I only wish I could have aped the twinkle in his eye, that came with his courage and sacrifice.

Among other things Henry started his life with a premise from the Bible – that is, receiving stolen property, particularly that which the government steals, is a sin.  Do read this essay here, on Henry & Bertha Vellema.   It has been a blessing for all who’ve heard it, including a retired district judge from Louisiana who encouraged me to publish it after he heard it.
