For those readers who don’t live in the United States, and who may not be familiar with U.S. geography, Missouri, (abbreviated MO), in just above Arkansas on the map below. It is almost in the center of the country. The names of the towns on the map are the state capitols. Jefferson City is the capitol of Missouri.

Here’s a map of Missouri for you. The city of Joplin is in the lower, left-hand corner of the state. You can click once on the map for a larger image.

Missouri is a beautiful state with lots of nice scenery. It’s also known for its friendly people. Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with the people of Joplin as they work to recover from the deadly tornado that struck their town.
