It was interesting watching the Rt. Revd. Akinpelu Johnson reel out with relish names and dates (in chronological order) of the Johnsons who have made significant contributions to the growth of the Anglican Church, such that the family name is almost synonymous with the history of the Church of Nigeria.
He had himself chronicled the tradition of missionary work in the family in a landmark historical book entitled, “As for me and my House… The Story of a Levitical Dynasty”, published in 2007.
The history spanned four generations over some one-and-a-half centuries or thereabouts, starting with Henry Johnson (alias Erungun-Jin-Mi) “who was captured a slave but who through this found perfect freedom in the service of the Lord Jesus Christ”
