Thread Title: "Joplin MO"
johnnysguns This is not a hunting story. It is a story about the youth group at our church serving in a capacity that makes me proud to have had a share in it. I accompanied them on a mission trip to Joplin to help in the clean-up after the tornado that devastated part of Joplin back in May of this year. I had no idea that these young hoodlums were so destructive. They tore down houses with amazing speed. I can only surmise that they were not working in the flesh. Only with the help of GOD were they able to get so much accomplished, so fast, and with NO injuries. This is a picture of the group. http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h116/Rimfire58/Joplin%20mission%20trip/FBCDyouth.jpg

These young thugs have been on 5 different mission trips together. They are like one big family, like a bunch of brothers and sisters. Last year they spent a week in Northwestern New Mexico and put a new roof on an Indian Reservation church. The year that 6 hurricanes hit Florida, they went down there for a week doing clean-up. The couple in white t-shirts at lower left are the youth ministers, Matt & Sherri. The guy sittin in the middle is a Master Plumber and the lady standing behind him is his wife, a Registered Nurse. The guy in the cowboy hat with the golden splittin maul is the Texas State 4A Discus and Shotput Champion at 17 years old. The girl on the far left is a Bronze Medal winning Basketball player. Each of these youngsters is outstanding in his own right. The old guy in the green at far right is just proud to be a part of this mission.

As much as I decry the excesses of organized religion, this is the part about it I truly like.  Kudos to the kids and their ministers.
