ONU grad and spouse take "summer" mission trip to Uruguay

This is the time of year when Ohio residents long for an escape from the cold and snow, to someplace where it's summer. 

Recently, area residents Christina and Nathan Seidner did just that with a eight-day mission trip to Uruguay. Nathan is an Ohio Northern University mechanical engineering graduate who is employed at Grob, Bluffton.

The couple are members of First Assembly of God in Lima. They took part in a mission that included 17 others, including members at churches from Findlay, Wapakoneta and Leipsic.

Although it was Nathan's first trip out of the U.S., this was not so for Christina, who had traveled to Peru previously on a mission trip.
