Joplin: A community with a need

About 2 months ago, my mom and I made a trip down to Joplin to assist in cleanup from the tornado on May 22, 2011. The devastation was greater than anything I could even have conceived. However, the Lord is definitely at work in that community. The church we worked with, Grace Baptist Church, was definitely getting things done. They were very organized and really had a successful system of getting things done/finding new things that needed to be done. They are such a great blessing to their neighborhoods. There are also other churches in the area that are doing great work as well! If you haven't already, I would definitely recommend a trip over there. We only served for half a day as we were passing through and it was totally worth the experience!!

here are a few images from that trip:

Please continue to pray that the Lord will bless and provide for the families that have lost their homes.
