(1959 / USA)

Joplin MO

Joplin is an English surname derived from Jobling.
Meaning: son of Job. Job meaning persecuted.

Job was an upright man. So upright in fact God
took pleasure in him. Satan boasted that if God
would take down His walls of protection around
Job he could get Job to curse God. So God allowed
satan to attack Job. Satan destroyed everything
Job had (including killing his children with a violent
wind that destroyed the house they were in) . But
in all the persecution handed to Job by satan, he
never once cursed God. In the end, God doubled
His blessings given to Job.

Father in heaven
Bless the people of Joplin and keep them
Shine Your Face upon them and be gracious unto them
Lift up Your countenance upon them and give them peace
In Jesus Name we pray

Book of Job
Blessing of Numbers 6: 24-26

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
