Joplin Days 2 and 3

For the sake of saving myself some time, I'm going to stray from my TypeA-ness and just post the rest of my Joplin pics without really editing them.  Pictures now.  Debriefing later.

This used to be a Burger King.  If you look in the background, there's a Hobby Lobby that was completely untouched by the tornado.

 This is in the same parking lot as the Hobby Lobby.  On the left you can see a Shakes building.  On the right was a cell phone store.  The difference a few hundred feet can make...

This is Joplin High School

 If you look closely, you can still see books on the shelves.

 This is St. John's Hospital.  Many lives were lost here.

Samaritan's Purse chaplains praying for our site.

Our team leader Ellie.  She did a super job keeping us all busy!

I took a couple of videos to show the damage everywhere.  I really thought I was taping slowly, but I apologize.  I really needed to slow down!!

  1. Wow, those pictures are unbelievable. I can't believe you can still see some of the books on the shelves in the school.
