A 14-member mission team will depart for Honduras on Feb. 15.

There are members from from Broad Street United Methodist Church in Cleveland, some from Bristol and from Cleveland, Va.

They will spend a week in Morazan and el Negrito, Honduras, where they will hold a medical clinic in the existing clinic there and do some construction in a school.

The clinic, an outreach of the church here, functions two days a week all year.

The team will be installing the third pure water system in La Cruz, a village of about 1,500 homes without good water.

This project is in combination with the Bradley Sunrise Rotary Club. A grant for the actual system comes from Rotary and the building it is housed in and other needed items come from the church.

This group has partnered with Rotary already, doing two previous installations providing good, clean water every day for people in these communities.

There is also a water school component where we teach the people how, when and why they need to use this water.

Dr. Bill Johnson, chairman of the mission committee and team leader, has provided leadership for these projects for 25 years.

Two trips are made each year. The next trip is July 12-19.

Anyone interested in joining the team and experiencing this mission work is invited to participate.
