Overcoming the recent flood in Southwest Missouri requires the network of

a good community. Flood relief efforts after clean up are now getting

families back into their homes. On May 8, 2017, free beds and helping

hands were donated to 15 families of the Neosho, MO flood by Joplimo

Mattress and the Nazarene Church

“Homes were flooded by a wall of water near the old Benton County

school” explains Pastor Dustin Ledford. Residents, Christina Brock and

her Dad, Gene Brock of Stratford Place that runs along the back of the

school "We were told to not keep our flooded mattresses from our home

due to mold...". They had expected to let their mattresses dry out and use

them again; but now have brand new beds! The donation station was Casa

Jaziel Iglesia del Nazareno in Neosho, MO. Community and church

members helped unload the semi truckload of mattresses, boxsprings and

bed frames; then loaded local residents with beds to transport to nearby

homes. The Estrada family, pictured here with their 3 children and 2

additional children not pictured, were full of tears wiped away and beyond

grateful for the donation. A hand shake between the Estrada family with

Joplimo Mattress owner, Brian Croft, was the sincere thank you exchanged

of no words.
