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

Rating: 5 stars  

I just returned from a week with Mission Guatemala and we had an amazing experience with 7 of our Sr High youth. Not only were they able to accommodate a rather late request to join them but the accommodations, food, and planning were exceptional. We worked hard during the week but on "free" weekend days they organized really fun and interesting events in the area that is absolutely beautiful as well. The translators and foremen are the best, very engaging, patient, and interact well with youth as well as adults. Our team would often play soccer with them after lunch if time allowed and that made for some good laughs and fond memories.

Purified water is available at all times, hot showers, bugs were a minimum, weather perfect, and what beautiful people we got to serve and serve along side.

They helped us organize an evening "in town" with our group by arranging 3 tuc-tucs to come pick us up. They also ordered a birthday cake from a wonderful bakery in town to help us celebrate an 18th birthday for one of our youth.

Music or devotions are up to you to plan on your own so just be aware of that but if you have any reservations that a trip like this may be too difficult for some that enjoy creature comforts of home, I would recommend MG for sure. My experience was part vacation and part mission work.
