This is Greg... Sara's letting me post info on the terrible destruction in Joplin, MO. The tornado was categorized as an F5 and caused much destruction.
Louis and I had the opportunity to drive up to Joplin and help with Samaritan's Purse. They are so organized and they take care of you while you are helping care for so many hurting people. Our work days included: debris removal, packing items that made it (in some homes), hunting for items that were salvagable (because some don't have insurance!), and sorting (clothes, diapers, toys, food, etc.) from donors trying to help.
If you are able, I highly encourage you to get there and help... the people can obviously use physical help, but they also need a loving heart and a good set of ears to hear them tell you what they have been through. I know Sara has said this before, and I just want to reiterate... don't worry about what you will say, it's important just to have someone to be there with them and know they are not alone.
God bless you and keep you in the love of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior... and please keep praying for the people of Joplin, MO.
