I traveled to Guatemala to see firsthand, the Mayan Culture, the surroundings, and the good that Mission Guatemala, Inc is doing in the Panajachel area. I am awed by the experience, the grace, the knowledge and care that Mission Guatemala has for the area, the people, including the indigenous culture.
In learning about the history, the present, and the challenges that nature presents to this area, I am amazed at the fortitude, the strength, and the beauty of the people. We were able to help our new-found friends with some building and construction. We were able to communicate, laugh, ask questions, and become friends.
Absolutely wonderful ministry! God is glorified and so much good work is done there!
This is an excellent ministry to be the hands and feet of Christ. As Christ representative I find Christ there. His spirit is in the hearts of the people. I am humbled to help give them a hand up not a handout .
Mission Guatemala was our first experience with a non-domestic mission trip. Our family of four attended. It was amazing. The team they have took great care of us every day. The work that they are providing to the community around them is incredible. Mission Guatemala is making a difference. We loved how safe and comfortable our family felt during our entire stay. It was a great mix of hard work and time to explore the culture.
We loved our week with Mission Guatemala! From a missional standpoint they have done a tremendous job of going into an area and partnering with other people and organizations. By no means have they entered into the area with an idea of what people need and are going to force something upon the people.
From a preparation and hospitality standpoint, Mission Guatemala has their act together! Tom, Diego, and Dave are the perfect hosts both beforehand and while our group served with them. Our accommodations were outstanding and our group felt cared for while we were finding our places to serve.
Thanks for creating a wonderful opportunity and partnership for our group!
I participated with a larger group as a last minute substitute. I found all activities organized to the greatest degree. I was never without multiple translators so did not feel alone or isolated. The work was to my capabilities and well paced. Many watched over me for my welfare. Devotions and a well prepared breakfast started us for the day. We worked right beside the Guatemalans. I never heard a bad word from them as they considered us friends and family. Half of the workers in our group that traveled were teenagers or younger. They worked just as hard as the adults. I was the oldest in the group and by the end of the week they were all calling me grandpa, a term of endearment. I consider the experience life changing. I plan to return.
Mission Guatemala is exactly what every mission should be: a not-for-profit run by people who understand how to humbly help those who need the most help while maintaining their dignity. It is the perfect way for Americans to help others in a completely different world.
I am amazed at all of the things Mission Guatemala is doing to support those around them: A medical clinic that also has a pharmacy, an eye clinic, a sewing class, a keyboarding class for children, nutrition and meal programs for children, plus they invite groups like mine to come along side them and help build a kitchen and stoves at a local school and help add on to a rehabilitation center in a town nearby. They are a caring, committed, very well run nonprofit. I'm glad to have been a small part of their mission this past week.

Amazing organization, friendly and helpful staff doing all the good they possibly can in Guatemala. Clearly embraced by local community leaders, Mission Guatemala is making a real difference by mobilizing volunteers and investing in both infrastructure and human capital.
