Help Build Hope of Kentucky visits Joplin

Updated:

A Joplin resident whose home was destroyed by the tornado is getting some rebuilding help from a mission group out of Louisville, Kentucky.  The group is called "Help Build Hope".

Some of the members are from College Heights Christian Church in Joplin and they helped put together walls for a new home on Wednesday.

College Heights Church bought the materials for the home.

Group members say the work is very rewarding.

"It was just really neat for the kids to see the accomplishment of the house being built and now putting the other picture together that this gentleman here is going to be the recipient of what they have done," says Dave Lockwood of Crossroads Missions.

The mission group travels across the U.S. and also visits Mexico.
