Featured Missionary: Brian and Lisa Johnson

Originally from Superior, Wisconsin, Brian Johnson and his family have served as a missionaries in Utena, Lithuania since 1996. Utena is an industrial city of 40,000 people in northeast Lithuania, and it was there that the Johnsons established Utena Baptist Church.

Utena Baptist has matured to the point that it is looking to call a Lithuanian national to be its pastor. This will allow the Johnson family to focus more on outreach work in other towns and villages in the area. For the last two years, they have been working in Moletai, a town of 7000 about 30 miles south of Utena. A church is being planted there, and the Johnsons are looking into purchasing a building for services and to house a Lithuanian pastor.

The Johnsons are sent by LaMarsh Baptist Church of Mapleton, Illinois.
