Video: Church member, eyewitness remembers World Trade Center attacks

As we approach the 10th anniversary of 9/11 (see links to our special coverage), here are a few snippets of an interview I conducted during my visit to the offices of World Bible School in Cedar Park, Texas. (Read my earlier stories and blog post about the trip.)

John Tesseyman, who helps the Bible correspondence ministry ship its lessons to churches across the nation, is a native New Yorker who worked for the transportation department in New York City at the time of the 9/11 attacks. He and his wife also were members of the Manhattan Church of Christ.
Tesseyman was in a subway when the planes hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center. In the video, he recalls the moments after the attacks and the Sunday service that followed. He also shows artifacts from the World Trade Center — including a support beam cut into the shape of a cross.
