Mission Guatemala is very well organized and their staff is helpful, friendly and caring. I was expecting to get to be a part of a work team and to visit the mission site, but that was only part of the experience. Trips to nearby places were planned to enrich our understanding of local culture. The people of Guatemala are so friendly and generous and I made friendships that I know will change me forever. Thank you to Tom Heaton and staff for answering God's call.

Great organization and very well run. Living facilities and food were excellent. They did an excellent job balancing work projects with time for relationship building with the members of the community. I highly recommend Mission Guatemala.

My daughters and I just returned from a mission trip to Guatemala with 13 other members of our church. We were building additional rooms onto a small school. It was a wonderful and rewarding week of hardwork. The River House where we stayed was beautiful,the food was great and the staff was kind and helpful. The greatest thing for me is that it has inspired my 18 year olds to want to do more mission work. Mission Guatemala is a wonderful organization,

My son just returned from an exciting week at Mission Guatemala. He raved about the care the staff gave to his group from Ann Arbor, the quality of the work site jobs, and the general feeling that radiated from the whole experience. He was very hesitant to go on this trip, but returned with wonderful things to say about the whole experience provided by Mission Guatemala. Thank you!

Our group of 40 people worked with Mission Guatemala for 8 days in June 2015. They were great. The living arrangements were clean, spacious, comfortable, and attractive. The food was tasty and plentiful. Lots of clean drinking water was provided everywhere we went. The work was meaningful to the communities and there was more than enough to occupy our large group. The local people hired to work with us were skilled, friendly, and patient. Transportation was safe and reliable. Overall - fabulous. I've been on many mission trips and would definitely recommend Mission Guatemala.

I go on mission trips every year with my church and this one by far exceeded the rest. The living space was excellent and all the work was very organized. We were always able to find jobs on the worksite and there was never any "busy work." Our group was larger than most, with 40 people, but everyone was taken care of and accounted for throughout the trip. I would highly recommend Mission Guatemala because the people that they are helping are truly in need of it.

I was in Guatemala from June 6-14 and it was the best experience of my life. I was treated well and received a great background on all the history of the country. It was fabulous working with Mission Guatemala and helping them continue in their work for the country and people. They are truly doing God's work and I hope it will continue for years.

What an amazing week I spent learning about how i can be Gods hands and feet! Mission Guatemala has the most amazing people helping them help such as Dieguito Xirum who is top notch. I felt Jesus working through him in the way he cares for the people of Guatemala. And the rest of the crew at the river house are pretty great too, I was blessed to be a part of this mission even if it was only for a week.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

i wouldn't change a thing, they have it right!
