From a very young age, Mark Johnston grew up around pubs, parties, drunks, drug addicts and criminals. He was a victim of physical, sexual, mental and emotional abuse. By the age of 19 Mark had attempted suicide numerous times and was put into seven drug-induced comas, self mutilated, planned on murdering other people, and was an extremely violent individual that detested life.
Knocking at death’s door, ready at any time to go in, Mark encountered Christ in 2011. This encounter was set to change his life. He entered The Transformations discipleship program on the Gold Coast of Australia, which really turned his life around. He completed the program in a little over a year, becoming a staff member of the program in south-east Queensland, where he helped pioneer a new campus.
The author has a deep passion for discipleship, mentoring and recovery and has been sober and clean from drugs since. He has a diploma in ministry and is currently undertaking a diploma in drug and alcohol (training?). He has had the privilege of preaching his testimony in churches, prisons and schools, as well as at crusades.
Marked by Mercy is a book that will leave you knowing that, no matter how bad your situation may be, there is hope.
“I have known Mark Johnston for approximately 5 years now. It has been incredible to watch the journey from the shell of a man that had appeared on the doorstep of Transformations, Rehabilitation and Discipleship program to the solid man of God that he is today. Mark was mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually destroyed and the Grace of God has transformed him into a powerful, prophetic minister of the Gospel. I am so incredibly pleased with Mark and happily endorse him and the powerful story of his transformation in the pages of this book. You will be both amazed and encouraged as you read his incredible story.”

“I have known Mark for many years as a friend and work colleague. We have journeyed together at a clinical level and of course at a personal level in my man cave, (home theatre, ha ha). I love Mark as a friend and brother in Christ and have thoroughly enjoyed his absolutely honest and heartfelt journey through his book. I feel it will bring comfort to those struggling with complex and painful life issues, but more importantly, hope. Hope for a better life. Regardless of where we’ve been in our lives, Jesus can and does heal and restore. Marked by Mercy is a testimony to the relentless and passionate love of God who pursues us to the ends of the earth to bring us into His intimate love. Thank you Mark for sharing your life to the world.”

“Mark’s life stands out for me for all the right reasons, I’ve watched him from a distance over the years, he has never looked back in his recovery regardless of circumstances, or trails. He continues to stay rock solid in his walk with the Lord. His memorising of scripture is truly inspiring, and also his ability to teach Gods word. Mark is a walking miracle of Gods grace, I truly believe he will impact the world for Christ!”

“Marked by Mercy is a must read for every leader father and husband. Mark is so brave to welcome you into his world at first it seems innocent and bright. As I read this I am more convinced of the reality of a fatherless nation, and an orphan generation giving birth to more orphans. Only true fathers, whether spiritual or biological, is a vital link to find the lost sons of our generation and usher them into sonship.”
Dr David McDonald
“Mark is a walking miracle. He has overcome so much adversity in life, in recovery and in ministry, and
is a testimony to how God can take such brokenness and transform it into a wonderful, exciting and purposeful journey. Mark is a gifted teacher of Gods word and moves powerfully in the prophetic. His life message brings hope and encouragement to all, and his ministry is not only to the local church, but to the nations. I am confident you will be inspired and greatly moved by Marks story.”
