My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mission Guatemala Inc, New Albany, IN, USA
My daughter and I had such a good experience taking a trip to Mission Guatemala with others in our church! The group does a great job helping groups prepare to come by communicating and providing planning information. The River House is a beautiful, peaceful place to stay, and the meals provided were delicious. I really appreciate the way Mission Guatemala provided us with background information about the country's history and how they work collaboratively with local organizations and people, aiming to do something truly wanted rather than intrude. It was great to see how team members of all ages were able to take directions from the local foremen as we worked on the construction project--they patiently taught us what to do, and we learned about local methods. It was exciting to see the impact the clinic and nutrition programs are having. I believe Mission Guatemala has a good system for doing work trips that are beneficial to both the community where they minister and the teams that come. I gained an appreciation for the beauty and history of Guatemala and of God's love for and work this area.
