Totally unexplainable!

No need for glasses to see the devastation!

Bob Hataway immediately dispatched the AmCoach to Joplin upon hearing the devastating news of the horrible tornado that had occurred.  The end result was over 150 people were killed, 1000s of homes destroyed, and the area was totally ravaged one mile wide and 14 miles long.


Hataway coordinated 4 clean-up crews with the AmCoach providing lodging, food, and transportation.  Three trailers of donated product were delivered to Joplin.  Two trailers from the St Louis area while one trailer came from Hataway’s home church in Fort Worth, TX.


Bob worked and coordinated the donations and work crews through Truckers Charity - Illinois, Samaritan’s Purse - North Carolina, First Baptist Church - Fort Worth, the Salvation Army - USA, and the Forest Park Baptist Church in Joplin.


Bob noted, “The volunteers were beyond belief.  With the heat plowing down on them as they worked, it seemed impossible, but they pursued with great vigor.  It truly was a testimony of the care and concern for hurting people and their desire to reach out!”


TransAlive USA is a non-profit organization providing crisis intervention for truckers founded by Bob Hataway in 1984.  They operate through 100,000 volunteers who cover every zip code across the country.


Bob Hataway is a Chaplain endorsed by the Southern Baptist Convention through the North American Mission Board and is a graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft Worth, TX.
