It was painful to leave feeling we had done so little in our eyes. The homeowner for whom we worked was so thankful and we realized as we traveled home that though we felt like we done little, in the lives of this family we had done much more than we could have imagined.In the words of the little boy who lived there and stood in a closet with his family during the storm – “I have a room again!”So, in the name of Jesus we worked, we laughed and we shared the love of Jesus.Thanks to our church family who graciously enabled us to give away $1000 in gift cards, provided transportation and prayed over us before and during our trip. We thank God for our family.Please pray for the city of Joplin as they continue to rebuild homes and lives after this horrific storm that devastated over 7000 homes a businesses.
