Benjamin’s Unfaithful Heart
The story of Benjamin and Jeannette Ella - Yaoundé, Cameroon
For Benjamin Ella’s wife, Jeannette, there was only one response to her husband’s infidelity: she decided to murder him.
“When my wife finally realised that I was having an affair, she went wild. She grabbed a machete and tried to kill me. I had to wrestle it from her hand,” Benjamin told CfaN.
Benjamin Ella of Cameroon was a proud man with a distinguished military career. He entered the army at age twenty-two, and then began an immoral lifestyle. He married Jeannette a decade later, but his pattern of immorality continued. “Each time I had sex with a woman, I would not be satisfied,” said Benjamin. “Lust drove me to find the next woman. But it was never enough.”
The couple lived like strangers in the same house. They rarely spoke to each other, and hardly ever made eye contact. After a while, Benjamin began to realise that he was living a very lonely, empty existence.
One night in 1997 he decided to go to the Christ for all Nations Gospel campaign in Cameroon near his home. He said that as he walked onto the parade grounds that night, he felt like something good was going to happen...Watch the video to hear Benjamin's amazing testimony of what God has done in his life and his marriage and 17 years later they are still strong in the Lord!
