We use the word “mission team” as a broad term for teams and groups who come to visit us and perform work in the clinic or help out or build projects or do activities.
We’re actively seeking groups who would like to come to Guatemala and help out in a variety of ways. Most groups who come on a building project will also bring the funds to pay for the materials for the work that they will do while here.
If you would be interested in more information, let us know what you have in mind to do, how many people and the approximate dates. We take care of arranging everything for you including transportation, lodging, food and side trips and help you prepare a budget for your trip.
Currently-scheduled groups include those listed below.

Thanksgiving week Dental Clinic w Dr. Steve Humbert, DDS
What a great blessing that Dr. Humbert volunteered to spend
his Thanksgiving Week vacation time in Guatemala, doing
dental work for the poor and needy. We really appreciated when he was here for more
than a week earlier this year, and heartily welcome him back to our clinic again.

Dr. Don and Peggy Orth return once again. They have come to our clinic several times a year for the past 5 years and have blessed many hundreds of villagers with dental care. Note: IT WAS A GREAT TRIP and so many were wonderfully cared-for by the Orths!
