The Truth... What is it?

Another Special Life in Christ

These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the role model!
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!


Rolf Benirschke:

He was born in 1955 and, by his words, raised in a great family. In the 1977 National Football League draft, 22-year old Rolf Benirschke was drafted second-to-last by the Oakland Raiders, entering the intensely high-pressure life of pro football. Soon after, he was part of a deal that sent him to the San Diego Chargers for his rookie year in the NFL. Once he became a member of the team, Rolf didn't disappoint the Chargers. He kicked twelve consecutive field goals, which was a new team record. He noticed that there were several team members whose lives seemed filled with peace, one being his holder, Mike Fuller. But their attraction did not turn Rolf off his "rich young ruler" path in life. So, God allowed a bigger challenge than the constant pressure into his life.

During the 1978 football season, his second season with the Chargers, Rolf's health began to decline. He was plagued by symptoms including fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. At first he thought it was the flu; but, as the symptoms continued, it was obvious that his illness was more serious. He had a dramatic hospitalization and colectomy for ulcerative colitis. And his weight dropped down to only 120 pounds. "But, I stiff-armed Jesus for another 8 years."

So, in about 1986, Rolf surrendered his life to the Lordship of Jesus and asked that He take over his life...then he retired with a career team scoring record of  766 points.
I watched the San Diego Billy Graham Crusade on WIS TV channel 10 on 12/9/03 and saw him give a brief "warm up" testimony.
