Joplin Mission Trip
Elmwood Community Mission Possible
Day one was getting oriented, adjusting to 106 0r 108 degrees heat. Working with volunteer groups and associations is a challenge of logistics. We are thankful to be here.
Our day started with orientation at the office of Rebuild Joplin. I thought there were many volunteers today. 800 Americorps volunteers were in town last week.
One of the many groups starting their day at Rebuild Joplin.
Many groups are building and helping in Joplin. We were part of morning orientation.
We began our day on this site, getting started unloading.
Getting started picking up on site where the previous volunteers left the house.

Site beside us being refilled and packed in place.
Another build to suit site just west of us
Dry drought conditions make dust the most available commodity
Tent a wonderful asset today as temperature topped at about 106
Church in Joplin allows our group to prepare lunches in their building.
Plans, checking designs, organizing, a difficult task with volunteer groups and charity organizations.
Essential food gathering required to keep everyone going, we hunted down a restaurant with a wide variety of choices.
