I remember Dick and Grace at Grace Baptist Church at S.W. Ninth & Herold in Des Moines, Iowa. I went forward in church there in 1967 as I was about ready to accept Christ, and did so at home that afternoon. I thought the world of these two and was so happy when Tina Stifel overheard me remark one day at Airport Baptist Church that I wish I knew where they lived. I did not know Tina knew them; she piped up and was able to give me their Nixa, MO address. I do not know Tina's relationship with the Johnsons. I am at maryeliz46@q.com. Mary and Dan Johnson, formerly Grace Baptist, then Airport Baptist, and now Grace Church, N.E. of Des Moines, Iowa at E 25th & Aurora Ave.
