A Note From Audrey Johnston

Dear friend,

It is a blessing for me to have this opportunity to reach out to our Christian Thinkers Society community and request prayer for my husband, Jeremiah Johnston. On Tuesday, January 19th, Jeremiah will undergo a da Vinci robotic-assisted sigmoid colectomy (a portion of his colon will be removed) and he will be hospitalized for 2-3 days following the procedure. We are told there is a six-week recovery where Jeremiah will not be able to lift more than 10lbs (our triplets weigh more than 30lbs each!).

We have known for over a month about Jeremiah’s upcoming surgery and I am so pleased to share that God has orchestrated all of the details in a way only He can. Jeremiah and I have the peace (Shalom) of God.

Would you please join me in praying for: 1) Jeremiah’s full healing and recovery; 2) for the surgeon, nurses, and hospital team; 3) for God to be glorified in this; and 4) please remember our five children and me in your prayers.

If you would like to have more insight into robotic surgery, check out this video and website.

2021 is a very important year upcoming of ministry and outreach. We need Jeremiah well and ready for all God has for Christian Thinkers Society for the Kingdom.

1 Peter 5:7, “You can throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon him, for you are his personal concern.”

May I end with a “Dad-joke” – Our good friend, Dr. Craig Evans,  in conversation with Jeremiah, quoted another Bible-scholar who had a portion of his colon removed, and is now fond of saying: “I have a semi-colon.” Dad joke alert!

I will send out an email update as time allows.

Yours in Christ with hope,

Audrey L. Johnston, M.Div.
