On the road

We have a truck load of appliances and supplies for the people of Joplin. I'm excited the trip is here and we finally get a chance to help in this way.

We have a 12 foot trailer and we are full with:

7 microwaves
2 washers
6 stoves
3 dryers
1 chest freezer
And lots of other great supplies.

It's raining in Ohio, but it's 73 and sunny here. Here is a picture from a short time ago as we came across the Mississippi.

Continue to pray for our safety as we travel.

Leaving soon

Things have been coming along and God has really provided. We have about 20 different appliances ready to go to Joplin. I am excited to get these down to Joplin.

Pray for safe travels if you can.

If you can not help with an appliance, we are trying to fill up the truck we have. A complete list of the needed items is located at the following website:

Welcome to Impact Joplin

I recently had the chance to see first hand the city of Joplin, Missouri. There is such a mix of emotions. We were all overwhelmed by seeing the devastation, but also encouraged by the perseverance of the people of Joplin. While working at the Joplin Family Worship Center, we saw how the Christian community came together. 

When I returned to Ohio, I felt God was asking me to do something more. When I worked in the appliance tent, I saw there was a great need for appliances. Right now, I am working out a few details on trying to organize a trip.

As I have more information, I will post it to this blog site. In the meantime, if you would like to help Joplin, please visit the website:
