Doug & Sally Johnson, Pickstown, SD

This is the second year of our “wood ministry” – an outreach to the recreational crowd that swells to large numbers each summer. Doug prepares bundles of wood just right for a family at a campsite. He includes in each one a sealed bag with a church brochure, copies of “Daily Bread” and “More than a Carpenter,” and a Peace with God tract. Then we head to Fort Randal Recreation Area on the Missouri River and North Point Recreation Area on Frances Chase Lake. We drive around and offer a free bundle of wood to each family we see at a campsite. We tell them we are from the Pickstown church and invite them to a worship service. Last year Doug distributed 120 bundles, and several families visited our church as a result. So far this year, we’ve given away 45 bundles.

This is ranch country in southeast Montana. It’s definitely rural! Pray for this missionary family and church as they study, teach and share God’s Word.

One couple started a Sunday School. God grew it into a church and brought Village Missionaries. 60 years later, it’s a good time to celebrate.
