A Powerful Death

Just saw this inspiring article over on the BP. Here’s a clip:

But before he could see the revolution become a reality, Johnson’s life was cut short by an automobile accident. Johnson was on his way to football practice at Beech High School in Hendersonville, Tenn., on the morning of July 28 when his Jeep Cherokee drifted across the center line, striking a cement truck almost head-on. He was pronounced dead shortly after a LifeFlight helicopter transported him to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s emergency room in Nashville.

Despite his early death, friends and family say that God is using the tragedy to make Johnson’s dream a reality.

Nearly 300 people have professed faith in Christ in the aftermath of Johnson’s accident, including more than 30 at his funeral July 31, reported Jeff Lovingood, student minister at Long Hollow Baptist Church where Johnson was active in the youth ministry. Another 16 teens prayed to receive Christ two nights following the funeral at the Wednesday night youth gathering, with more than 400 in attendance, Lovingood said.
