Ben and his wife Sheree have been blessed with three children Joshua, Samuel, and Annabelle. Ben is originally from Samoa and grew up in a Christian home. He gave his life to the Lord at a young age at a Youth For Christ Rally. Later as a teenager, alcohol addiction became a problem but with an earnest cry out to God and a praying mother – God intervened. A radical change took place in Ben’s life when He encountered the Holy Spirit in a real and tangible way at a Uniting church in Toowoomba. The reality of God was so evident that the course of his life changed. Ben completed a Diploma in Ministry at Rhema South Pacific Bible Training Centre and attends Rhema Family Church –Logan City, with his family. Sheree his wife has also attended Rhema Bible-Training- Centre Australia.
“It is a privilege to serve at Fishers of Men and help people. We see God change people’s destiny. God is not a respector of persons – He Loves People from all Walks of life. The Gospel needs to be preached because it is the power of God unto salvation (spirit, soul and body). The Word of God empowered by the Holy Spirit has such creative dynamic power when spoken it can change any circumstance and anyone when received by faith.”
Ben co-ordinates the street van team, and in addition to this, has started picking up street van contacts and bringing them along to Fishers of Men services, where they can receive further care. He now takes the street van out in order to provide this valuable service to the community, and as a result of his witness and ministry into the lives of others, whole families have been changed.
