Pastor Le’Andria Johnson is firing back at critics who don’t approve of her giving out cigarettes and condoms on the streets of Atlanta, Georgia, in the name of Jesus.
On the Oxygen show “Preachers of Atlanta,” viewers witness Johnson dressing to blend in with prostitutes while going on the streets to minister to them. After the show premiered and she received criticism, the 33-year-old pastor and founder of Imperfect People Changing Ministries in Atlanta, says her unique form of street ministry reaches people that churches don’t.
“Not one word about getting tested and six people in your church is HIV positive or has AIDS. I have seen people affected by HIV, in the holiness, COGIC, apostolic, AME, Baptist, and CME churches alike,” Johnson wrote. “You might not agree, with all [I do], but I know in Atlanta there is a need. Not one word from ‘the church’ encouraging people to take their medication or even take a 3 min test.”
The season 3 winner of the BET gospel music competition “Sunday Best” went on to challenge churches who do not do enough community outreach in her city.
“FYI, 30312 has the highest infection rate in the city, Including herpes and syphilis. Most of these churches has NO community outreach, ( y’all just shout and record it ),” she said. “The people in the community don’t even know you. You even walk by and refuse to speak, on your way in to shout.”
