Such a great experience! Amazing team and people. I felt safe the whole time. Words can't explain how awesome it was. Never wanted to leave!!!!!
I returned to Mission Guatemala after an amazing experience last year. I come with a university, but also brought community members so they could have this experience. I so appreciate the kindness and care Mission Guatemala gives to meeting all your basic needs-beautiful lodging, delicious meals, clean comfortable vans. Having all these needs met let us focus on the service work we came to do. The employees were also attentive and caring-checking in with the groups frequently to see if all needs were being met. I highly recommend this organization to anyone considering service work in Guatemala.
Mission guatemala was such an amazing place! Beautiful, spacious rooms, incredible meals and a super helpful staff created the perfect setting for us to serve from. Every detail was handled, so we could just focus on the work we came to do. The relationships they have formed and fostered with the community added so much to the experience. I was initially nervous about traveling to Guatemala, and this ended up being a life changing experience. I can't wait to go back-thanks Dave, Tom and Diego!!!!
Mission Guatemala is a perfect place to take your group! They arrange everything and even plan some very interesting and fun activities that help you get to know the Guatemalan culture. We felt our work was very meaningful and hope to go back someday!
To whom it may concern: Our team had the specific mission to assist an Alcohol Treatment facility in San Lucas Toliman , Guatemala. Mission Guatemala, an NGO located in the Lake Atitlan Basin hosted our visit. Their staff were as professional as we have ever met. Services provided included translation , transportation, room and board, food service, technical assistance, and program evaluation. The above services far exceeded our expectations. We anticipate an on-going relationship with this NGO.
Mission Guatemala creates an unrivaled mission experience. From administration to personnel involved in daily operations, the MG team is unrivaled in their ability to interact with the San Andres community and accommodate diverse mission groups. Their dedication to serve permeates the surrounding communities and is further evidenced in post-return lives of missionaries.
I am excited at the prospect of returning; Guatemala is a beautiful country filled with the most benevolent people I have seen. Mission Guatemala truly goes above and beyond to make positive change in many lives.
