I met these guys in the ruins of the Joplin tornado zone ............. they had come up from Florida to volunteer ......... they had worked all day in the sweltering heat helping a newly married young couple to clear their lot after their new house was destroyed in the tornado ........ amongst the ruins the Florida boys found precious family photographs ......... they kept these carefully aside then they worked on......... all day.

By the time the sun was going down they had done a punishing days work ............ they more than deserved a break ........ It was time....... They took out their skate boards........ they skated the big hill just as they had discussed getting a bit of time for all day.......... in the end they only did two passes ...... they were much too tired to do more than that ......... after that they needed to go to the church they were staying at to get some sleep.

The picture shows Dylan Bezuidenhout at the front and Joseph Dhani behind........ they were in the ruins of the Joplin Tornado zone with their friend Trent Ruskin. They know each other through their Church 'The Habour Side Christian Church' in Florida. They told me they were: 'Called by by God' to come and help out.
