399. Missouri UMC in Guatemala

CampingThe sixth mission team from Missouri United Methodist Church, in Columbia has returned and we met Caryl and Jim Bryan in their home to learn about that they have been doing. As you can see their dog, Jasper, was an attentive listener.
The Missouri United Methodist teams have been working in the very poor villages of San Juan La Laguna, San Pablo and Palestina located along Lake Atitan. Each team has had a medical and construction component. For further information you may contact Caryl Bryan or Melissa Clarke who have organized the teams. The Missouri UMC number is 573-443-3111.
