I Need What You are Talking About:

Buddy Young, missionary at West Texas A&M, teaches a class on the WT campus. In one of his classes he told his story of transformation. He told the class how he met Christ while he was in college. After this particular class one of his students caught him after class and said "he felt he needed what [Buddy] had." Buddy then had the privilege of sitting with him in the student center and telling him about Jesus. This student is now a follower of Jesus
