In honor of Black History month, I researched and wrote about an incredible saint from Ghana. Joseph W.B. Johnson helped share the gospel and build up the Church for over a decade before meeting with missionaries and receiving baptism. He played a huge role in helping the Church grow in Ghana and his faith and sacrifices are an inspiration. I can't wait to share his story with you. You can download the bonus chapter I wrote below. I simply ask that you not reproduce or share it, except for personal use. Thank you!
In Standout Saints, I was only able to share 40 stories of Church history heroes around the world. Selecting which stories to include in the book was an incredibly challenging experience. My goal was to show how God's hand has been at work all around the world and to help highlight a diversity of faithful heroes representing the global restoration of God's church. Since completing Standout Saints, I've continued my Church history research and continue finding stories to share. I've also heard from some of the family members of heroes I mentioned in the book and have gained new insights. During 2021, I plan to release one bonus chapter per month to continue sharing incredible Standout Saints and their inspiring journeys with you. You can sign up for my newsletter to have the bonus chapters emailed straight to your inbox or you can read them here. I hope you enjoy reading about these beautiful stories. Thank you!
