Soulwinner Spotlight - Johnny Leslie

Today's Soulwinner Spotlight is on my friend, Johnny Wayne Leslie. He is a missionary to the nation of Croatia and has a huge heart for God and a great burden for souls. Having only known him since December of 2005, I have had the privilege to go soulwinning with him on many occasions. I have personally seen him stand in the streets of Croatia for hours and hours day after day tirelessly witnessing for Christ. When home on furlough, he does the same thing. He's very consistent and very energetic for the Lord.

I have also had the opportunity to hear him preach numerous times. His preaching is Spirit-filled and powerful. My friend Johnny tells it like it is - the way we all need to hear it.

He is an encouragement and blessing to me, and it is a great comfort to know that Croatia has such a missionary in their midst. Bro. Johnny was called of God to go halfway around the world, learn a new language, and start churches by witnessing for Jesus. When that call came, his answer was, "Here am I, send me."

So far, two churches have been started in Croatia, one in Cakovec and one in Varazdin. Praise the Lord for that. The pastorate of the church in Cakovec, Tree of Life Independent Baptist Church, was turned over to Bro RajkoTelebar in 2006 and is doing well. The new church in Varazdin, Victors Baptist Church, just started in August 2008.

Croatia needs more missionaries. There are about 5.5 million people there, and so far, just one Independent Baptist Missionary - Johnny Wayne Leslie. What a blessing to know know him! What a privilege to call him my friend!
