The Dicks entered the Home Mission work of the General Conference in 1938 by taking over the Mission of the Lima Mission of Middle District Conferences. George was ordained as a pastor and elder.... they worked in this mission for five years. Then they moved to Bloomfield, Montana, where Rev. Dick served the Bloomfield Mennonite Church from 1943-1955. Then the family moved to Winton, California where they served the Winton Mennonite Church. At Winton they tried to subsidize the family income and also give work to their children by operating an almond orchard....

The family then moved to Gulfport, Mississippi, where they spent one year in Voluntary Service. This proved to be a most enlightening and rewarding experience for the entire family....Helene supplemented the family income through public school teaching."
