Bea Littleton (F, 40s — 70s) — The wife of Pastor Hiram Littleton and happy to let you know it. Head of the Sisterhood. She is the “church lady” and it is her way, always.
Lorraine Jensen (F, 40s) — She’s lived her all her life. She has nine children, at last count. She is just glad to be out of the house with so much rain. She is happy to do whatever is needed but she knows that it has to be Bea’s idea.
Tina Yates (F, 30s — 40s) — Originally from Walbrook, just outside Baltimore. She enjoys her role as the local Yankee. She is a go getter. She has worked in several missions at church but this is her first time with the Sisterhood.
Janet Murchison (F, 30s) — Attractive, cultured, newly arrived from Georgia and still settling in. She dresses more sexy than should be at church. No one has met her husband she claims to have.
Riley Reynolds (F, 20s) — Riley is a surprise. She has been going from one church mission drive to the next. Living on the grace of each church as she hitchhikes south. She has a secret that will be told eventually.
Comedy by Bo Wilson
Roads are flooded, bridges are washed out, and less generous souls are staying safely indoors, but it takes more than a little rain to keep the ladies of the Charitable Sisterhood from fulfilling their sworn mission. Bea Littleton is the pastor's wife; Lorraine Jensen is the tireless mother of nine; Tina Yates is the transplanted Yankee; and Janet Murchison is the newest arrival. When these ladies meet to organize a relief effort for homeless Guatemalans, they are greeted with a mountain of community donations—but one woman's junk is another woman's treasure, and that pile of stuff in this little church basement is hiding a thing or two. Our angels of mercy will leave you breathless with laughter as they do their best to help the victims of global disaster, spiritual deprivation and, most of all, one another.
