Four members of Shepherd Of The Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay are currently Guatemala to participate in their annual mission trip. For the last three years, church members John and Nora Zacek have led groups to the Central American country to build and maintain houses, provide stoves, and give water filters to families in need. Even though her husband will not be making the trip this year, Zacek says it is great to be able to help so many people during their mission trip.
Zacek hopes to schedule next year’s mission trip around local schools’ spring breaks so more people can participate. The group, which also includes church members from Antigo, Wis., will return from Guatemala at the end of the month.
