His Place His Way ministry will assist those affected by the Joplin, Mo. tornado that devastated the region Sunday.

His group will collect items that will compliment those already being gathered for residents and families whose homes or loved ones were lost in the storm that killed 125 people.

Items needed are flashlights with batteries, oil lamps and oil, generators of all sizes, plastic tubs, tarps and nylon coverings, first aid and medical supplies, blankets and other bedding, towels, cereal, protein bars and trail mixes, juice and drinks.

Brother Rennie Tarpley and His Place His Way ministry responded to and continue to respond to the Vilonia area, where cleanup is still taking place following a tornado that hit the area in late April.

Drop-off points for aiding the Joplin relief effort are at several churches in Faulkner County.

Grace Baptist Church, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Salem United Methodist Church, Peace Lutheran Church and Calvary Temple Pentecostal Church of God in Conway are accepting donations.

The Faulkner County Library on Tyler Street in Conway is also a drop-off point.

House of Prayer in Greenbrier, and many more in Faulkner County will also receive supplies.

"We’ve just started the effort. Trucks will leave for the following two or three Thursdays," Tarpley said. "Sixteen churches will put e-mails out to congregations to begin gathering supplies by Wednesday services."

Yet another drop-off point will be His Place His Way ministry’s warehouse at 300 Elliott Drive in Springhill. 

The point is available Monday and Tuesdays from 8-11 a.m.

Tarpley asks that he be contacted before donations are accepted at the warehouse at 501-514-1426.
