Joyce Meyer Ministries Hand of Hope Aids in Joplin Rebuild

ST. LOUIS -

Expectant residents of Joplin, MO will gather tomorrow, May 22nd, on the anniversary of the tornado that swept through the city, and one local homeowner will be given the keys to her newly constructed disaster-resistant home. Joyce Meyer Ministries Hand of Hope, in partnership with Convoy of Hope, has rebuilt this home for Helen Owen after the 2011 tornado ripped apart her former residence. A key ceremony will take place at 11:15am at this newly constructed home, and will be followed by other activities that will honor the one-year anniversary of the tornado.

Joyce Meyer Ministries Hand of Hope, in partnership with Convoy of Hope, has been on the ground in Joplin since the May 22 tornado, and has funded the rebuilding of Helen Owen's home, as well as the future home of another Joplin resident. "We're honored to come alongside Convoy of Hope to fully fund the building of two homes," says David Meyer, CEO of Hand of Hope. "The homes are built using a new type of forming system, which can withstand 200 mph winds, and make the homes extremely energy efficient."

Helen Owen has lived in Joplin since 1957 and says her only desire is to finally be able to go back home. Her one request for her new house was to leave the slab where her garage once sat. "I plan to make that into a patio for the kids," states Owen. "All of the holidays are a big deal at my house. They all come and Grandma cooks."

Tuesday's ceremony takes place at 11:15am at Owen's new home located at 2528 S. Bird Ave, Joplin, MO, just a few blocks northeast of the Irving Elementary School groundbreaking.
