Our Chardon UMC-based Guatemala Mission Trip departs January 20th for that Central American nation for a weeklong mission.  The large group is comprised of 20 women and men.  Over half of the mission group hails from our church and the rest are from neighboring communities, with two of the group from as far as Erie, Pennsylvania.  The group will work at an Orphan Resource International orphanage, with about half of the time spent doing much needed maintenance such as roofing, painting, and yard work and the other half interacting with the children.   The mission trippers are ably led by Betsy Forbes and Debbie Drew, who request your prayers for a safe, effective, and spirit-filled mission experience for participants and the children.  The team members include:
