Joplin Mission Trip Fairview Center

One Less Empty Space -- Experience in Joplin MO


Ozark Camp And Retreat

We are staying at this camp, so we have wonderful lodgings at night. So nice even I almost enjoy it at dawn.

Joplin Garage

The skilled part of trip are going to build a garage here, Doug from Home Sweet Homes came out with basset hound Huck, to make sure we were starting with needed supplies.

Shed Demo

The less skilled crew was given a shed to rehab. Many groups are building storage sheds for residents. This man wanted his rehabed instead of a new one.

Shed Complete

By end of day this is the shed ready for paint.



Garage 1st Day

This is where the skilled crew had gotten when we came back
