What We Do


Our current spotlight project involves working closely with the indigenous communities of the Amazon, focusing on water filtration education and behavioral change. This initiative, led by Randy Johnson’s direct engagement with local leaders, aims to provide crucial training and resources to ensure safe water practices.


Alongside this pivotal project, ILN continues to champion publishing efforts across various regions. Our diverse projects range from leadership training materials in Bosnia Herzegovina to multi-language book publications in Africa, India, and South America. Each project is tailored to meet the unique needs of the communities we serve, with a focus on sustainability and empowerment.

About Us

Our Journey

The International Localization Network (ILN) traces its roots back to a pivotal moment in 2002 when Coral and Randy Johnson embarked on a mission to Bosnia Herzegovina with their family. Working alongside the Evangelical Church and its bible school, they encountered a stark reality: the local church had access to the bible but lacked other critical religious texts, including a Bible concordance. This realization marked the beginning of a profound journey into the world of publishing and material development for underserved communities.

Recognizing the potential of Digital On Demand Publishing for modest print runs, the Johnsons facilitated the translation and publication of essential religious texts into Serbo-Croatian. This initiative not only provided the local church, then only about 1,000 members strong, with much-needed resources but also laid the groundwork for what would become the ILN.
