Dick and Margie started coming down to Cary, Mississippi from Platte, South Dakota 16 years ago. They would serve for two weeks at the Cary Christian Center (CCC) and then head back up north to Platte. But their hearts remained in Mississippi.
We had a wonderful time with Dick and Margie. I stayed in an apartment for the night - a real bed! - while my dad stayed in the truck. We both got to take showers and then in the morning Dick and Margie took us to the local dive, Chuck's, for breakfast. It was fun to see how everyone seemed to know them and how they seemed to know everyone. It was so beautiful. They have really developed relationships with people down here and it's great to see. They are such a special couple and it was fun getting to know them. God blessed me in such a way by being able to take a glimpse into their lives and their ministry. It's a good example for me and my family.
