We’ve seen the pictures, we know the stories, but how do we respond as a community of believers?

What is your Church/Ministry doing to support the efforts?

I cannot imagine the devastation they have there. I cannot imagine what it is like to live there, or to lose someone in this tragedy. Red Cross is doing an amazing job coordinating efforts, from the reports I hear. The Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief Team (“the yellowshirts”) are doing much in the community as well. As a Pastor in a SBC church, I can can highly recommend supporting them. They have been instrumental in many recent tragedies.

Here is one way you can support the effort, even if you  can’t pick up and go to Joplin, You can donate to Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief Here.
