Chapel Car “Grace”
The six sisters cars of "Grace" were "Evangel," "Emmanuel," "Glad Tidings," "Goodwill," "Messenger of Peace," and "Herald of Hope." The chapel cars were operated in cooperation with the American Baptist Home Mission Society after 1923. The cars served 25 states from West Virginia to California and from Texas to Washington, reaching thousands of individuals with the gospel and establishing hundreds of Sunday schools and churches.
The chapel car ministry was the result of the vision and commitment of Dr. Wayland Hoyt, and Mr. Boston Smith, Sunday School Missionary for Minnesota.
The missionaries who served on "Grace" were:
Rev. & Mrs. E.R. Hermiston 1915-1924
Rev. & Mrs. A.C. Blinzinger 1924-1943
Rev. & Mrs. Howard Parry 1943-1946
