FARMINGTON – A benefit chicken dinner featuring Sueli’s famous Chicken Marbella will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Old South Congregational Church, Main Street. The menu will also include baked beans, veggie casseroles, rolls, salads, beverages and dessert. Adult dinners are $7 and children under 12, $4.

The Old South Youth will also offer a production of “Godspell Junior” at 7 p.m. in the church chapel. Admission is not included with dinner.

The dinner is sponsored by churches of the Franklin Association of the United Church of Christ to benefit ongoing mission programs in Honduras. Two more work groups will travel to Kimistan, Honduras, in February to complete Pastor Mario’s parsonage as well as offer medical clinics.

The first week’s team will be headed by Dr. Dale Bardo, and the second week the medical team will be headed by Dr. Paul Wooden.

The Maine Conference of United Church of Christ launched a statewide partnership with Honduran churches in 2004.

The Franklin Association’s Honduran affiliation first began with a week-long work group that arrived in San Pedro Sula in December 2004. A second work group left for a week at the end of June.

Along with the construction work done on the mission trips, medical clinics were also held by Dr. Roger Condit and his medical team in area villages, including remote mountain sites.

Other ongoing and new projects in Honduras include a diaper-making project in the style of a cottage industry, support of a nutrition clinic, AIDS awareness education, teaching English and computer keyboard skills.
