David Koresh was wise enough to recognize how important it was not to underestimate George Roden. Instead of pursuing a formal leadership question on this issue, Koresh spent two years in intensive evangelistic activity inside and outside the country. Koresh was able to acquire several new recruits and with this, his power, influence, and sense of divine favour were also on the increase. Marc Breault, one of his earliest converts, also proved to be one of the most significant. Breault first encountered the Branch Davidians when he studied at an SDA institution, Loma Linda University, in California. He played a significant part in the history on the Branch Davidians when he joined as he served as an evangelist, supporter, and confidant to Koresh. This chapter looks at some of the trials that Koresh had to face, especially those against George Roden, and it looks at how David Koresh was infamously recognized as having various issues in church particularly in terms of his sex life.
