SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – After years of facing setbacks, one woman in Springfield now dedicates her life to helping others. Kristi Johnson volunteers at the Connecting Grounds. Last summer, the church received a grant and decided to use half of it to give one volunteer a home. They chose none other than Kristi Johnson.
“It’s all by God’s grace,” Johnson said. “The pieces have come together, I feel like. It’s a beautiful thing that I can’t take credit for where I’m at. This is a complete fruition of things that I prayed for and more.”
To start November, the Connecting Grounds moved Johnson into a home next to its medical ministry. Pastor Christie Love says the move was a relief for everyone involved, especially after a busy last couple of months working on the place.
