Help for Joplin

I'm sure you've seen on the national news the devastating tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri.  I was born in Joplin and lived in Galena, Kansas (where the funnel clouds formed).  The video and news are so incredibly heartbreaking.  If you live near the area, there are several ways to volunteer.  If you're not near the area (like me), there are still a ton of ways to help.  Please check out these links:

Tornado Relief Efforts list compiled by the Girls Scouts-- GREAT LIST

You can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate money.

You can also follow @communitysource on twitter or for updates and ways to help.

My parents haven't been able to get in touch with friends yet, but we're praying for their safety.  Sovereign God is in control and knows the needs and reasons.

Thank you so much for posting this. I only live an hour and half away and feel like we could help. I'm going to start looking into what our church can do, whether it be a donation or maybe a group to go up later to help with clean up.
