Joplin Tornado Devastation

On May 22, 2011, the most destructive tornado in 60 years hit Joplin, Missouri. Within a few days, KCM's Disaster Relief Team arrived in the midst of unimaginable devastation.

Though the destruction seemed without limit, people from all over the area had united to help others like never before. Without the aid of road signs or landmarks, our team worked with local authorities to locate KCM Partners. We also joined forces with many other relief organizations, including Operation Blessing, to bring help to people throughout the communities.

One team member, Steve, reported: "It was a powerful time in Joplin. We went to take care of those in need. With the help and ministry of KCM Partners around the world, we were assured our KCM Partners in Joplin were taken care of. We heard stories of many amazing miracles. We found every Partner's house and contacted almost everyone. We'll keep following up with our Partners."

Through KCM's Partners Helping Partners outreach, we have once again discovered that while one of us alone may not be able to do much, together we are stronger than any tornado! Please continue to pray for the citizens of Joplin, Missouri.
