    Thank you, Anderson, for your compassionate coverage of the devastation in Joplin, MO. As soon as you asked, we stopped to pray and ask God for mercy and help for the tremendous losses suffered by the people of Joplin. May our gracious God hurry to help all those across our nation impacted by these tornadoes and facing the daunting task of rebuilding.
