In 1913, Rachel Sizelove came to Springfield, MO, to visit family. While in prayer one day, she saw a vision of a sparkling fountain in the heart of Springfield. The fountain sprang up gradually & began to flow to the east, west, north, and south until soon living water covered the entire land. In 1914, the General Council of the Assemblies of God formed in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Then, in 1915, the operation moved to St. Louis, MO where it remained until 1918.
