This site is dedicated to
April 1973 - 15th April 2000
Sunflower Trust is dedicated to Joseph Creddy Price. Joseph
Creddy Price has always been known as Johnny Boy Price. He was
born on April 10th 1973. Johnny Price was born into a
loving close knit family. He lived with his family
in the North West of England. He was a boxer, on the
billing with Nigel Benn and Chris Ewbanks. Travelling
around the towns in the Northwest. Their lives have changed
forever because of Johnnys life, and death. Their faith has seen
them through, this sorrowful time, and the Lord gave his
mother a missionery vision since 1990.
Johnny lived a remarkable life, and the Sunflower Trust is
dedicated to him, because of the vision given to his mother. His
mother is a Christian Missionary and worker. She has been
an aid worker in Eastern Europe for since 1990, and works mainly
in Romania and Hungary. The Lord Jesus gave her a vision of her
The vision is of a sunflower. The sunflower seed is just a
little flat bean like seed. When it is sown into the earth it
begins to grow very quickly. When the seed is sown in March or
April it starts growing very swiftly, by July or August it is a
fully-grown flower reaching heights of up to 8ft. and over. As
the sunflower grows it turns its head towards the sun.
The stem of the flower is bright green and very thick, and the
flower head itself is the colour of the sun, golden yellow. Its
petals stretch out to lap up every ray of heat that the sun has
to give. The flower is watered profusely by the early spring
rains, and draws its nourishment from its deep embedded roots.
By summer the flower is strong enough to withstand the fierce
heat from the sun, but its petals distribute the heat evenly on
the flower head. Because of the sprawling design of the petals,
the heart of the flower head is rich and full of nectar,
sustaining many creatures and insects that feed from it. When
the flower starts to wither and die, it scatters its many seeds
far and wide. Death is not the end for the sunflower, for when
it is harvested, its oil that is extracted has many wonderful
uses. The sunflower oil has been used as an herbal medicine for
women's hormonal enhancement for centuries. It is also used as
aromatherapy oil for beauty purposes for hair and skin. We all
know that sunflower oil is used in cooking and can be made into
margarine. The stem of the flower is used for silage and fodder.
The interpretation of the vision is about Johnny, who was just
a little boy, who was planted in the Christian
faith, chosen by the Lord for a purpose.
He grew very quickly in stature and strength, his beauty
was radiated by his aura, which was the light if the Lord
shining through him.
As he grew in years, and age, his head was turned to the
sun, that is the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
His seeds were words, which were sown into the lives of
people. Those words are the words of life, the living word of
God. The words are words of Truth better known as the Gospel.
His oil was the anointed oil of the Holy Spirit that lived
inside him, and spurred him on to do the things that the Lord
wanted him to do, and to go where the Lord led him. His faith
and beliefs were his roots that came from his fervent teachings
from the Bible, rooted deep into his mind and soul, they were
written on his heart and came forth from his mouth. Johnny
lapped up the warm love that ever surrounded him and enveloped
him, and that was the agape love of God as the Lord caused his
face to shine on him.
He radiated his love to all who encountered him, just like
the petals of the flower. his seed has spread far and wide, as
he told the people about the love of God, and to those who gave
their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Johnny died on April 15th 2000 aged 27 years. Johnny lives on in the
people he brought love to.
