Two sisters, who graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School, are heading to a dental clinic in Honduras on a mission trip this Saturday. Amie Hurley and Katie Glasheen, daughters of Ken and Tracy Glasheen of Sturgeon Bay, are taking part in a nine-day project that was organized by in-country mission coordinator Rick Nelson. Nelson is formerly of Sturgeon Bay and Door County Habitat for Humanity director. Hurley, a dentist from Baltimore, Maryland, who has gone on two previous trips to Honduras, shares the details of the planned mission work. She says they were able to treat over 100 patients in four and half days on her last trip to this remote part of the country.
Hurley says the talented team of volunteers will include her older sister Katie who will be acting as an interpreter for the group. Glasheen, who currently lives in Boulder, Colorado, says the chance to join her sister and utilize her bi-lingual skills on the mission trip was too good of an opportunity to pass up.
The mission trips are organized and funded through the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church and the Sturgeon Bay Rotary Club’s Foundation project.
