Review for Mission Guatemala Inc, New Albany, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our home for the past week was Mission Guatemala. Myself, my wife and 2 children went to volunteer to help with a project called the House of the Teacher. It is an administration building for the teachers of the district. We came home tired and sore from the hard work, but also came back different. We all have changed a little. We where welcomed by the local Mayan people and found out what their needs were and how Mission Guatemala is helping to meet those needs. We learned about the Mayan and Guatemalan culture through visits to 2 different local communities. We experienced this culture through shopping, eating and working with these people as well as playing soccer and baseball with the children.

We came home different and exhausted but fulfilled and blessed. We left with tears and new friends. We now have a home and family in Guatemala and will return soon.

Thanks for all you do and to do all the good you can! We are excited about our return in 2 years!
