MISSION GUATEMALA INC
April 4, 2011
I have nothing but good things to say about Mission Guatemala and the work that Tom Heaton and his team are doing there. I have done many US trips but this was my first international project. Even here in the states the accommidations can be bad, the job preparation and details can be poorly handled and you can leave a work site feeling like you didn't really get to show the face of Christ to anyone but your own team. At Mission Guatemala we had great accommidations and Tom had the details of travel etc. all worked out. We were free to do the work needed while interacting with the children in the schools and the people of the communities. I left knowing that our group would be remembered long after our week was over. We can't wait to go back and continue the work God is directing through this mission! Cindy
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Within a very short time, Mission Guatemala has begun a preschool, a medical clinic and a feeding station. We saw them all. We also unloaded a truck load of dental equipment that will be used to open a dental office at the clinic. It's awesome!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would suggest this as a more longterm mission opportunity to those thinking about the mission field. As fast as things are moving at Mission Guatemala, they could use help with the business end to free Tom and his team up to search out and develop plans for additional projects in the area.
Volunteer & Our group finished furniture for people displaced by last year's rains, completed a fence for the preschool playground and put doors on newly built toilets.
