Johnny is an inspirational story about a ten-year-old boy in a foster group home who is dying of leukemia. Even though he has every reason to doubt God, all he does is trust Him. Johnny is sent to see Doctor Carter to see if there is anything that doctor Carter can do to help. Doctor Carter ends up taking Johnny into his home where his wife rejects Johnny, as he reminds her of the son she lost two years previously, and where Johnny bonds with their nine-year-old daughter. This is a truly inspirational story that will leave you in tears and filling spiritually fed. Watch as Johnny works to heal this family that has been torn apart by grief.
Everyone Has A Special Mission.

In the schoolroom at 41:37 when Michael gets up to tell what he wants to be when he grows up, he is seated fourth in a row with a curly haired boy in a blue short-sleeve shirt at the head of the row (41:32) who has a blond girl in braids and a blue shirt to his right and Johnny is nowhere in sight. But at 41:50 Johnny is at the head of the row (in a red jersey) with the curly haired boy behind him and the blonde girl in the blue shirt to Johnny's right. See more
