Michael Johnstone

Michael is married with 4 adult children. He has been walking with the Lord for 33 years now.

He gave his life to the Lord Jesus at the Timaru New Life Centre where he was set free from a life of drug and alcohol addiction.

He has been a businessman in the forest industry as a logging contractor for 39 years.

Over the years he has had the privilege of praying for and seeing many people in the name of Jesus, being set free from all types of bondage that have stopped them from walking freely with the Lord.

God has given Michael the gifts of the prophetic and teaching ministries, among others, and has opened doors for these gifts to be used both here in New Zealand and overseas.

My First Pastoral Visit at Timaru District Hospital #Gigatowntimaru

I’m happy and thankful for the opportunity to hold my first hospital visit today.

I’ve done hospital visits before when we were in Auckland and here in Timaru but it’s my first time to visit as a pastor.

Finally, I have the chance to apply what I learned from the two Clinical Pastoral Education courses I took at Central Philippine University College of Theology with chaplaincy practicum at Iloilo Mission Hospital.

Approaching the reception desk, I greeted the staff, introduced myself, state my purpose of coming and requested her to please connect me to the chaplain-on-duty.

After making the courtesy call to the chaplain-on-duty, I proceeded to conduct my hospital visit.

I appreciate the friendliness of Timaru District Hospital personnel.

I must admit this has been a fulfilling day for me and the person whom I visited.

To God be the glory!
