Joplin is only about 45 minutes from Republic, Mo. Talk about SCARY! Our church has stepped up and we have come together as a community to help all the victims of this TERRIBLE tragedy. SO SAD. So many people have lots love ones, homes, and EVERYTHING they had. Can you imagine? I went down and unloaded a semi full of food, clothes, blankets, and etc. Jeff got to go down into the town and hand out water, food, and just be there for people has they cried and grieved. Keep these people in your prayers.
