Miss Faris introduced Dwight and his wife Beckie to the idea of teaching at Morrison after they worked together in a youth Ministry back in the late 70's and early 80's. Before coming to Morrison Dwight taught math, science and computers in the Hillsboro High School District in Oregon for about 10 years. After teaching at Morrison for 2 years (1986-88), the Johnsons returned to the same Oregon district for another 6 years while preparing to return to Morrison as career missionaries with WorldVenture in 1993.
Dwight and Beckie have five children and 3 grandsons.
Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things. Phil. 4:4-8
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love. I Cor. 16:13,14
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. I Tim. 4:12
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose. Jim Elliot
“Well, my poor heart, here we are! Fallen into the ditch which we had made so firm a resolution to avoid. Let us implore the mercy of God and trust that He will help us be more steadfast in the future. And let us place ourselves again on the path of humility. Courage, soul! Henceforth, let us be more on our guard. God help us; and we shall do well enough.” Saint Francis de Sales
