Dedication Ceremony Of A New Home

Dedication Ceremony Of A New Home Brings Joy and Tears In Joplin Saturday

"It's In The Giving You Receive" and no one knows it better than Ryan Johnson and Roy Day, members of the La Harpe Christian Church, who initiated and co-chaired a mission project in Joplin, Missouri.

The two, and a slew of others from a four county area, built a large new home for a young widow and her three teens who lost their home in the Joplin F-5 tornado last year while they hovered in the basement under a stairwell.

The many folks from Midwestern Illinois who helped in this project agree that in the giving of self for the Daltons, they received much more than they gave.

Ryan Johnson shares his thoughts in a blog.
