Reviews for Mission Guatemala Inc
Just returned from a wonderful week of work at Mission Guatemala with a team from my church. Was wonderful.
Mission Guatemala does an awesome job of managing work teams. They line up meaningful work to be done. They pay attention to the details of accomodations. And most importantly they are intentional about giving team members opportunities to meet Guatemalans and learn about their culture and conditions. I have been on many mission trips over the last 20 years, several outside the US, and this trip was definitely the best.
