Joplinites Return from Mission Trip to Moore


A group of college students in Joplin return from a week of volunteering in Moore, Oklahoma. Several were affected by the 2011 tornado in Joplin, and wanted to do something to give back.

They helped with the roofing and construction on the first-reconstructed home in Moore--as well as put up fences and pick up debris-- and also just taking the time to listen to other people's stories.

"It was just an amazing experience to get down and dirty and you know, let other people know that we're here to help out," said Freshman Michael De La Rosa.

"Since they came down to Joplin to help us, I wanted to return the favor to help them," Freshman Kyle Brumfield.

"They do need help and people just loved having us there and they were just so thankful that we could just help them out," said Freshman Alison Sauer

"Our experience here at Joplin really opened up a lot doors, when they found out we were there, they felt like, I think they felt that they could trust us," said student pastor Daniel Vancleave.

The students' pastor also says they plan to stay in touch with some of the people they helped.
