A popular circus group recently teamed up with CBN's Operation Blessing to bring hope to the tornado-stricken town of Joplin, Mo.

The Flying Wallendas recently held a free performance for residents. During the show, the group not only entertained the audience with tricks, but also took time to share the gospel.

"You see the hope that I have is that one day in past history there was a man who came down from Heaven," said tightrope walker Tino Wallenda.  "Now he was 100 percent totally man, and he was 100 percent totally God."

"The fabric of our community has been so ripped to shreds, and to see somebody who would come and dedicate their talent and their time that God has given them and blessed them with to bless this community... it's absoultely astounding to see the healing that is taking place in the people here," Joplin resident Howie Nunnely said in response to the event.

Operation Blessing helped the Wallendas distribute thousands of tickets to the event.

Many Joplin residents are still picking up the pieces after a deadly tornado ripped through the city, May 22. Operation Blessing was in the area shortly after that delivering food and supplies to victims.
