I have been on 6 mission trips with Mike's Angels and they have been educational, fun, and in my case, life changing. Created by sisters Trish and Jackie Marcucci in honor of their brother,Mike, who passed unexpectedly in Guatemala , they decided to continue his mission of providing for orphans in Guatemala. You get a real sense of the culture there through the Marcucci family as well as true hands on help and relationship building with the children at 2 orphanages and poor children at a mission school, Opal House ,near Pana.
