A book that describes the life and ministry of Sadhu Benny was dedicated in Chennai on Dec 12, 2010.
Pastor Rajan John of the Lord’s Assembly church in Meenambakkam dedicated the book ‘The flying sadhu of Madras’ during a packed Sunday service.
Mark Jackson, principal of Hebron Bible College based in Manchester, UK, who wrote the book on Sadhu Benny has traced Sadhu Benny’s life from his birth in Myanmar. He described the book as a ‘collector’s copy – one that should be read by every Christian involved in missions work in India.
Sadhu Benny, who is past 70 now, travels all over India holding Gospel meetings and conventions wherever the Word of God has not reached yet. He said the book was all about how God moved in his life to mould him and make him a living testimony to the Lord’s goodness.
“All my life, I have tried to follow Jesus. There have been many mistakes, but then there also have been many victories in the Lord. I praise His wonderful name,” Benny said.
Recalling his relationship with Benny, Pastor John said: “I must say this about him: Benny is not a man after penny. His faith upon Jesus is very strong. He is a loving and caring brother…He has suffered much for God and led many to salvation. He is a forerunner for many young ministers of God.”
Talking about Sadhu Benny, Jackson said: “(He)…is a man set apart from most others in that he has totally renounced the world and all its trappings of wealth, name and fame. Sadhu Benny has completely given himself to the call of God on his life – to preach the Gospel anywhere and to anyone that the Lord leads him.”
