MISSION GUATEMALA INC
April 3, 2011

This is an amazing organization. Tom Heaton has a passion for helping the people of Guatemala and he puts his passion to work through projects that impact the people directly. While I was helping at the misison I sanded and varnished furniture that will go to the people now living in the tent city. I went to the tent city myself and saw the conditions and the need. I also wired metal supports for the feeding center in Nueva Esperanza. By the end of the week the supports were already up and surrounded by cement. Direct action and immediate results. I also went to a school in San Andres were the misison is donating $ for a school wide activity. The goodwill Tom is creating will have lasting affects.

The Great!

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

I saw the smiled of the children and heard from the people of the community who have been helped. He has hired cooks, construction workers, receptionist, doctor and a social worker. All of these people are being paid well and are able to help their own families while helping the people of Guatemala

Ways to make it better...

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

Perhaps in time Tom Heaton will need some assistants to help with the details. He works very hard and since the mission is growing he will eventually need more help. Right now however is a doing a fantastic job.
