Tribute to Robert B. Johnson

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you.
Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.    Hebrews 13:7

The recent Gathering in Germany of most of our Proclaim community from their ministries around the world was the perfect setting for grieving the loss yet celebrating the life of our dear friend, colleague, and leader, Bob Johnson.  Since August we have been trying to come to terms with the reality of this loss so soon after Bob’s condition had seemed to be improving. His wife Alyce has been the one to give the rest of us consolation and strength as she has truly experienced a supernatural peace and comfort from God who has sustained her.

At the Gathering John Bowers led the teaching sessions each morning looking at some of the admonitions in scripture to “Consider . . . ” The first day began with: Consider your Leaders. This was an emotional, but uplifting and God-honoring time as we shared together so many remembrances of how Bob’s life has impacted ours in ways that are worthy of imitating.

We are sharing here a video that we watched together that morning, produced by Marj Speiser, which beautifully captures the spirit of Bob’s life and ministry.
