Joplin, Missouri Disaster Recovery

Bob Dinkins, a volunteer from Saint Andrew Christian Church in Olathe, KS, one of the churches staying at the South Joplin Mission Station, posted this video about his experience as a volunteer in Joplin, Missouri with disaster recovery.  The video, written as a thank-you for his employer's generosity with flexible time off to go on a mission trip, does a terrific job of highlighting the work being organized by UCC-Discoples' partners at Rebuild Joplin and the mission station that arose out of the combined efforts of South Joplin Christian Church, countless volunteers from local churches, Week of Compassion, Disciples Volunteering, One Great Hour of Sharing, UCC National Disaster and Volunteer Ministries, the Ozark Area of the Christian Church in Mid-America, and the Missouri Mid-South Conference of the UCC.
