Who We Are

Mission Guatemala Inc. was founded in early 2009 by Tom Heaton, a United Methodist pastor who has supported the needs of the poor of Guatemala since the year 2000. In the spring of 2010, Mission Guatemala located a mission site in the community of San Andrés Semetebaj and began the needed renovations to open a medical office, preschool/nutrition center and dental office. Though our services have expanded over the years, and our staff has grown, our core mission has remained the same – partnering with local communities and schools to positively impact the areas of health, nutrition, and education in the communities of San Andrés Semetebaj and beyond.
