Day 17 – Dr. Michael Johnson

This devotional is part of the Black Missionary Heroes Past and Present Series.

Dr. Michael Johnson

Medical Missionary to Kenya

Read Matthew 5:14–16

Be careful what you pray for. This is the lesson Dr. Michael Johnson learned after he prayed for a large surgical practice. The Lord answered by sending him (and his family) as a missionary surgeon with World Gospel Mission to Kenya in 1990. Together with his wife Kay and their four children, they remained on the field for twenty years. After serving two decades in the Tenwek Mission Hospital in Kenya, the Johnsons returned to the United States to serve the underserved community of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They continue ministering in medical missions at Miriam Medical Clinic, providing care for people living in homelessness.
