Who are the Johnstons?

The Johnstons

Missionaries Serving with Asian Access

The Johnstons are serving with Asian Access, a non-profit Christian mission organization with a five-decade history of leadership development and church multiplication.

Jeff and Nozomi met while at Columbia International University in South Carolina. They were married in 1994 and have two wonderful kids, Zachary (Zack) and Joelle (Ellie).

 

2007~2011 — Living in Tokyo, Japan

Johnston FamilyThe Johnstons resided in Tokyo as missionaries with Asian Access. The family invested in sharing Christ with unchurched Japanese people in their city. Throughout their time in Japan, they were befriended by wonderful Japanese friends and were deeply touched by countless people. Many of the blog posts on this site—both fun and serious—are from their rewarding time in Japan.

Following Japan

After much prayer and sadness, the Johnstons left Japan returned to California in 2011. We love Japan and our friends there. The primary reasons for leaving had nothing to do with the Great Disaster of NE Japan in March 2011. But God spoke to us through the lack of funds to stay in the world's most expensive city, as well as Jeff's father's growing need for assistance.

Relocating in Fontana, CA, Jeff is thrilled to continue serving with Asian Access, now starting his 29th year. Nozomi is teaching at Upland Christian Academy, where both Zack and Ellie attend. The family is actively involved and invested in their primary supporting fellowship, Community Baptist Church.
