The Transition from Life to Life Eternal

Jayden Terrence Johnson became absent from the body and present with the Lord on Saturday, March 15, 2014 at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center.  


The Beginning of Life

On Saturday, April 10, 2003, David and Fanesia Johnson were abundantly blessed with the birth of their youngest son. They named him Jayden Terrence Johnson.


The Scholar

Jayden was an aspiring 5th grader at Sumter County Elementary School, Americus, Georgia, where he was dearly loved and will be missed by all.


The Joy of the Lord is My Strength

Jayden’s family presented him to the Lord for baptism as an infant at Campbell Chapel A.M.E. Church, Americus. As he “waxed strong in the spirit” whenever he was able to attend church Jayden enjoyed singing along with the choir his favorite songs “I Heard the Angels Singing,”  “Jesus Loves Me,” and “You Gotta Have That Pure Religion, Hallelujah!” which was taught by his great-grandmother, Lillie Ruth Pace. 

Jayden touched many hearts and lives with his warm heart, inviting smile and extraordinary spirit. Jayden was very strong, courageous and the true definition of a fighter.  He was never afraid nor did he ever get discouraged during his journey, for he always knew that his Lord and Savior were with him.

Fanesia & family, I was deeply saddened by the news of your son's passing.  My heart felt condolences to you and your family.  Losing a loved one in death is such tragic especially when it's a child.  But please know that Jehovah God will sustain you and comfort you through this intense time of sorrow. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Also, "He will actually swallow up death forever, and will wipe the tears from all faces." Isaiah 25:8,9. My prayers are with you.
With deepest sympathy.

Bro. Roderick & Family - Please know that your Family @ Springfield Grace Community Baptist Church are praying for you all especially at this time! Have comfort in knowing what Paul wrote to the Church of Philippi while in a Roman prison  "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord". What a beautiful smile Bro. Jayden must have right now! Grining from ear to ear. He has fought a good fight, He has finished his course, He has kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for him a crown of righteousness. You all must continue to carry the torch so that you all will see Jayden again one day!
Love and Sympathy,
Rev. Stephen Williams and Springfield Grace Comm. Baptist Church Family
