THE CHURCH NEEDS TO LEAVE THE BUILDING!
As various programs come and go in Joplin MO, the need to rebuild continues. While progress has been impressive, several hundred families are still in need of a serviceable place to live. The good news is several thousand people have volunteered to go to Joplin during the next several months to help. The bad news is, the churches that have been hosting the volunteers are overwhelmed, understaffed, tired, and now losing support of some of the programs that have provided help to them.
The need over the next several months is for kitchen and cleaning staff. Leadership is available. Facilities, food and menu planning are there. Cleaning supplies are in place. They need your help. If you can put together any kind of support from 1 to a dozen people to go to Joplin for a few days, it would truly be an opportunity to live your beliefs.
I can provide more detailed information, names, phone numbers etc. so please give this your prayerful consideration and be in touch.
