    Joplin Relief Trip Part 1

     

    After hearing about the tornado I knew I had to do something, but I didn't know what or how. The 24th my pastor sent a general email about going to Joplin. I knew I had to go. The 26th we had a van, a trailer full of supplies, and were on our way to Joplin to help anyway he could. The trip forever changed my life and the people of Joplin have been in my thoughts and prayers since.

     

    We were on our local news before:
