Testimony of Steve Ellis: What I recall about Brother Benfield was his popularity at church. I think that he may have seen himself as a aspiring minister, but that is an educated guest. He lived over near Norwood Avenue, where the store front church was and my parents visited and talked about religion, i.e., what God's plan was for the end time, etc., and of course finding the church (The Call out of Babylonor (institutional church). He had at least 2 boys and a girl and Rex and I play with them as kids. They left the church while I was still young. Moved to the Coolwood area.
