Stan & Tamera Johnson
Missionaries to Nicaragua
Stan and Tamera Johnson are from Knoxville, TN, and have two children, Aaron and Abigail. They love living in the mountains of Tennessee and enjoy the outdoors by going on fishing trips with their family. Both Stan and Tamera are passionate about helping others see Jesus in the center of their marriages, and serve their home church by being marriage mentors. They strive each day to love each other as Christ loves the church.
For the last couple of years, they have felt God stir in their hearts to serve in Central America. They were unsure of where and how this would be fulfilled, but the Lord clearly showed them after many months of prayer that they were to serve alongside WEGO ministries in Nicaragua. It has been such an impactful and powerful gift for their entire family to experience the culture and people of Jinotepe. God has given them a deep love for Nicaragua, and their prayer is that God will use them to be salt and light in this beautiful community.
“I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”
