HARTINGTON  — You have to step out of your comfort zone to grow.

Brenda and Taylor Miller did just that when they decided to go on a mission trip to another country.

The mother-daughter duo were among 20 others who traveled to the village of San Miguel in Guatemala this summer. The group left June 14 and returned June 26.

“It was through my daughter Taylor’s lifelong dream of experiencing a mission trip that I became her co-pilot on the journey to the Archdiocese of Omaha’s sister diocese of Huehuetenango,” Brenda said.

Diane Wemhoff, Coleridge, and her daughter-in-law Billie Jo Wemhoff, who is a teacher in Columbus, also took the journey.

Taylor had been looking for the right mission trip to go on since high school and was “persistent” in finding it.

While Googling mission trips in January, they discovered one offered by the Archdiocese of Omaha.

After attending several of the initial meetings, Taylor and Brenda knew this trip was just what they were looking for.

“She went to the first meeting with me and we decided it would be a great experience to do together,” Taylor said.
