The inside look of our church in Joplin after the tornado

Everything in this church looks familiar to me...our churches are pretty universal.
But this one's a total shambles...and the story is incredible. 

All while getting ready for a Relief Society meeting!

That really was a blessing for those women and the girl to be able to survive that experience. I can't imagine how scary that would have been. I'm amazed that the steeple went that far when it blew off. My heart goes out to the people in Joplin.

Janice's maiden name was Cooper. Yes , she is from Fresno. I am not sure what ward she was in. I knew her from going to girl's camp.
