Todd Beamer, the Man Who Said “Let’s Roll” on Flight 93, Knew he Was Going to Heaven When he Died on 9/11. How About You? (Gospel Light Minute #17)

Let’s Roll!

He is recognized as a hero for his actions aboard United Airlines Flight 93 on that fateful day of September 11, 2001. After United Airlines Flight 93 was hijacked, he and other passengers communicated with people on the ground via in-plane and cell phones, and learned that the World Trade Center had been attacked using hijacked airplanes. Trying to place a credit card call through a phone located on the back of a plane seat, he was routed to GTE supervisor Lisa Jefferson. He reported that one passenger was killed and, later, that a flight attendant had told him the pilot and co-pilot had been forced from the cockpit and may have been wounded. He was also on the phone when the plane made its turn in a southeasterly direction. He later informed Lisa Jefferson that some of the plane’s passengers were planning to “jump on” the hijackers and fly the plane into the ground before the hijackers’ plan could be followed through. Before ending the phone call, he recited The Lord’s Prayer with Jefferson, and his reported last audible words were, “Are you guys ready? Let’s roll.” He and his wife taught Sunday School at their church for six years, and he is known today as a man of faith, selflessness, and courage. He was posthumously awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award in 2002. His name is Todd Beamer.

GLMX #40: As We Remember the Tragic Day of September 11, 2001, Let Us Keep In Mind that Jesus Christ said “I Am the Resurrection and the Life”

“Where were you on September 11, 2001?”

Well, I was in my church office working. I had just finished conducting a chapel meeting with the students and teachers of our elementary school. My secretary came in late that morning, and told me to cut on the television. At the time, I did not own a television, so I borrowed one from a friend and turned it on to one of the national news channels, and like millions of others, I was stunned.

Words fail to describe the unbelievable tragedy–the devastation–of that fateful day. At 8:45 a.m., a plane hijacked by terrorists crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. Minutes later, another plane hurtled into the south tower. Massive explosions ripped through multiple floors of both office buildings. As terrified employees on the lower floors scrambled to evacuate, miles away a third plane slammed into the Pentagon building in Washington, D.C. Before it could reach its intended target, a fourth plane nose-dived into a field in Pennsylvania, killing everyone aboard. Back in New York, onlookers watched in horror as one after another, the 110-story twin towers collapsed on the heads of rescue workers, firemen, and police officers.

In just a matter of moments–before anyone really understood what was going on–thousands of lives had been lost.

America was stunned. Nothing like this had ever happened in the history of the country, or even of the world. Politicians and pundits struggled to put the disaster in perspective, comparing it to such catastrophic events as the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Oklahoma City Bombing. Others insisted that this was “the Pearl Harbor of the 21st century,” a “new Day of Infamy.” President Bush called the terrorist attacks “acts of war.” An entire generation would now be asking each other, “Where were you on September 11?”

Daniel Whyte III shares a compelling message of hope on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #21

On September 11, 2001, Todd Beamer and his fellow passengers overpowered the terrorists who had overtaken Flight 93. Because of their courageous actions, a victory over terrorism was won, saving the lives of many and preventing even greater anguish for the nation. In the days and months following September 11, the nation saw the equally courageous testimony of Lisa Beamer, Todd’s widow, as she told of her unshakable faith in God in the midst of overwhelming personal loss. What is the reason for Lisa’s hope? How does she face each new day as she raises her three young children?

Daniel Whyte III shares Lisa’s story and more in today’s Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message.

Vivian Stringer Found the Strength she Needed to Go On in Life through Jesus Christ (Gospel Light Minute #16)

She is a prominent women’s college basketball coach, with one of the best records in the history of women’s basketball. Known for her grace, class, strength, perseverance, and winning spirit, she holds the distinction of being the first coach in NCAA history to lead three different women’s programs to the NCAA Final Four: Rutgers in 2000 and 2007, the University of Iowa in 1993, and Cheyney State College (now Cheyney University of Pennsylvania) in 1982. She is the third winningest coach in women’s basketball history, and she is the third women’s basketball coach to win 800 career games. She was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in September 2009. She is currently the head coach of the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.

After watching her daughter fight for her life with spinal meningitis and watching her husband die from a massive heart attack, she says of those experiences, “I looked back on my life and just reflected and I thought, ‘I can’t go on. I can’t make it.’ The only way I could have gotten through these events is with confidence, trust, and faith in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” She says of her faith today, “Jesus is my Lord and Savior. And He’s my refuge. He’s the person that I can always count on, the person who I quietly talk to when no one else is there — the person who will give me strength to handle the most difficult of situations. And that I know is championing me to be able to speak to others.” Her name is Vivian Stringer.
