Overwhelming

Here are a few pictures from our time in Joplin, MO this weekend.  There are no words to describe what we encountered there so maybe these few pictures will help.  Please forgive their poor quality (iPhone specials).  But amazingly, despite all the destruction, so many people I talked to were hopeful and thankful to the Lord for sparing their lives.  Truly uplifting!


"The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 
 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; 
he hears their cry and saves them."  
Psalm 145: 18-19

The church that organized the work crews
Where to begin?

The men trying to remove fallen trees
Wooden debris from just one home...
The church kindly provided our work crew with lunches and water

Thankfully the family survived

A roof that blew off during the tornado
