Dan In Joplin Reports In

One of our more frequent visitors to the site is Dan in Joplin. If you’ve spent any time reading the comments to posts then Dan and his thoughts are well known to you.

Dan checked in with us and he and his family are fine, not so with his sister and her family. Here’s his report:

“Hey Bob and guys, my family and I are fine. We live just east of the damage and we were spared. All gifts that can be given are much appreciated and NEEDED, but the thing we need most is your prayers!!! God inhabits the praise of his people and even though there has been major loss of life and injury, there is much to praise Him for in the thousands of lives that have been spared! The stories I have heard from family and friends are simply amazing! Pray for the families affected and the community as a whole. I ask a special prayer for my sister and her husband as their home was demolished. They are fine, but very shaken as you can imagine! Thank you and God bless.”

Dan, our prayers are with you and your family, your sister and her family and all those good people of Joplin who are suffering. God speed.
