Joplin Mission Trip Fairview Center
We are staying at this camp, so we have wonderful lodgings at night. So nice even I almost enjoy it at dawn.
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.
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.
By end of day this is the shed ready for paint.
This is where the skilled crew had gotten when we came back

Hospital in path of tornado
Swimming Pool rebuild
Actually where we rebuilt shed had a Volkswagen Bug blown into their yard, from a block away.
Open view down the valley as the tornado made a path
Rebuilt looking nice
Across the street not looking as good.
As always stuff stuck in trees
An elementary school
Build to suit the steps there is nothing else on this lot.
Flowers hanging on, on this bare lot.
This two story 4 square was getting insulation today, and will add colorful steps in rebuild.
Little signs of hope and prayers are scattered all over the neighborhood
Thanking the volunteers
