Reviews for Mission Guatemala Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Mission Guatemala always exceeds my expectations. The staff is so service oriented that we want for nothing. Plus, they helped my students gain invaluable experience with food preparation and cultural exposure during our week in Solola'. The heart of Christ is present in this program.

A team of nutrition students traveled to Mission Guatemala last week and delivered nutrition lessons to the children at four different schools. WE painted a playground and were there to see the grand opening of the playground as well as attend a ceremony of a one year anniversary of a feeding center for children in a village school. Missions Guatemala now has two feeding centers for children and ready to add another. What better way to insure a good future for these children than to see that they have the nutrients to grown strong and healthy. Our hosts was very hospitable and helped us learn about the culture of these people.

Mission Guatemala is an doing some exciting ministry. Their school feeding program, water purification project and dental/ medical clinic all exceeded my expectations. The people of Guatemala are dearly loved.What an example of true Christian love as defined in Matthew 25.

July 2011- I organized a team of 25 volunteers. I am the Indiana VIM team leader trainer. This mission site was the most organized mission site that I have been to. The team worked at 3 locations (not an easy task for the on site coordinators). One team provided medical care at various locations. This is my speciality as an RN. Tom Heaton and staff did a great job with everything. Everything from transportation in country, lodging, food, sight seeing and building relationships with local people was done with EXCELLENCE. I highly recommend this mission site for first time or experienced missioners. Penny Krug, RN, Deaconess UMC

Mission Guatemala INC is a great mission organization on the front life of poverty in that country. Tom Heaton has been a speaker at church camps that I have directed and he is a member of my home conference of the United Methodist Church. Work teams return with testimonies of the impact that mission has had on their lives.

The success of this organization beyond this first year will depend entirely on which Mission Statement Tom decides to follow. Outsiders coming in to start projects that someone else is expected to complete usually enjoy the time they are in Country but nothing ever gets completed. It ends up being a trip for the sake of taking a trip. If however Tom focuses on facilitating medical trips and is able to connect usable physicians with patients in need, then I would expect the efforts of Mission Guatemala to bear fruit. - jim r.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

and many others just like it

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

try not to start projects without having the resources and labor committed to complete the work in a set period of time.
