"CHOO CHOO!!!" Manufactured in the GREAT 580, this train has been running since Feb. 29th, 1992. This train has also traveled many miles. And with that, this train has also fallen of the track a few times...but it has never STOPPED! This train doesn't run off coal like others, no sir! This train is POWERED BY JESUS!!! This train's name is BenE...CHOO CHOO!!! Seriously though, BenE makes music for Jesus first. Jesus changed his life. BenE has been in jail, addicted, depressed, conflicted, lost...BUT Jesus stepped in and changed ALL that! He wants to inspire, encourage, and change people with his music. One thing I know about BenE is that he doesn't want the glory, he doesn't want the credit, and he doesn't want the fame. He gives all te glory, credit, and fame to his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! POWERED BY JESUS!!!
