On Sunday, May 22 a tornado decimated the town of Joplin, MO. Over the past few months Christ in Youth Conference (www.CIY.com) has been serving New City by organizing teams to come on mission trips to Albuquerque and the surrounding Pueblos. CIY's headquarters are in Joplin, MO. The office is not damaged, and everyone on staff at CIY survived the tornado; however, many of the staff lost their homes.
Many of the staff at CIY attend Christ's Church of Oronogo, Missouri (www.ccochurch.com). New City has decided to donate dollars to this church's disaster relief efforts. Christ's Church was already involved in serving the city and is prepared to use every dollar donated for direct relief efforts.
