Trevor and Teresa Johnson have served a remote Papuan tribe for over a dozen years in the jungles of Papua, Indonesia. They’ve been married 20+ years and have 4 children (Noah, 15, Alethea 12, Perpetua, 8, and Gideon, 4). Trevor was converted from doubt and agnosticism at 18 after reading through the Gospels and finding nobody else who ever lived or taught like Jesus Christ. Jesus is worthy of our best efforts in life, both to honor God and to help our fellow man.
Trevor and Teresa live out lives in gratitude for what Jesus has done for them. In Trevor’s words “the best way to express that gratitude is through vigorous action, especially to help the poor and needy”. They’ve helped indigenous Papuan evangelists plant churches, started a school, health clinic, and a dormitory/orphanage. They currently support several nurses/teachers/evangelists for interior regions where there is no infrastructure. There are local believers who are being trained to become church leaders, the beginnings of an indigenous church in a tough area. In 2019 they founded the non-profit organization Jungle Hope.
I John 3:16-18, “16 Hereby we perceive the love of God: because He laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren…My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
