Kevin & Sarah Johnson
|During the summer of 2021 our family is moving from Guatemala to Chicago, where Kevin will study a ThM in New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. This will prepare him for doctoral studies and long-term service in Colombia with UWM’s Theological Education Initiative. After seven years of teaching Bible and theology in Colombia and Guatemala with UWM, this study leave is an exciting time to gain deeper specialization and prepare to make an even more significant impact through teaching and publications.
From 2007 to 2021 Sarah worked with the Deditos project (www.deditos.org), a series of Old Testament Bible story videos for kids produced by Viña Studios in Sololá, Guatemala. As Kevin pursues advanced theological studies, Sarah will primarily focus on raising our two young daughters, but plans to continue contributing to Deditos through a Facebook group for Spanish-speaking users and writing lessons as new videos are released.
- For our adaptation to life in the United States.
- For God to provide significant community in Chicago and opportunities to stay connected to Latin America throughout this study leave.
- For Kevin to have clarity about how to best take advantage of his ThM program to prepare for doctoral studies and develop his research skills and interests.
