Heather Johnston has a remarkable history with the nation of Israel. A year ago, she and her husband Bruce began a relationship with the late mayor of Ariel, Ron Nachman. Their partnership birthed the National Leadership Center in the heart of Samaria, Israel’s Biblical heartland. Since then, tens of thousands of Israelis have come to learn about their heritage through a curriculum based on the Hebrew scriptures and the physical challenges of the center’s obstacle courses. The vision of JH Israel is to “inspire and impact Israel’s next generation of leaders to live out their life purpose and Biblical identity.” There on the hills of Samaria, Johnston sees the prophetic promise of Ezekiel 36 unfolding before our eyes.
CBN News interviewed Johnston about a wide range of topics including the new Israeli government, the Abraham Accords and also how Israel and the US Congress can team up to provide an alternative to the monopoly China has on the global pharmaceutical industry. We also discussed Johnston’s book, Uncommon Favor: The Intentional Life of a Disciple. In it Johnston shares “how God called her away from her ordinary life into a pursuit after Him that led her to an unexplainable love for the nation of Israel.” It examines “the way Jesus prepared His original talmidim, or disciples, in the first century and what He requires of us today.”
