"I thank God for meeting people as
good as you.
On behalf of the blind of the
Chirijuyu village, the men, women and children of the different neighborhoods and
communities in the municipality of Tecpan, Guatemala I deeply appreciate the
assistance provided by Mission of Love."
"Thank you for sharing your time and
space, because you created very special smiles in every one of the children, they
felt very important thanks to your very opportune details. Since the moment the bus
arrived for their transfer, the welcoming you gave them, the piñatas, the gifts
given them to every one of them, accompanying them on their way back, setting up
the Christmas ornaments, all of these were very special moments that without a
doubt they will never forget."
Hna. Dora Alicia Garcia Gutierrez
"My brother and I were abandoned by
our family as small children. All of our lives we have lived in orphanages. For the
last several years we have lived in Casa Guatemala . It is an orphanage for
mistreated children who have been abandoned by their families. God has provided me
the opportunity to meet many good hearted people; people who have left their
countries to help the forgotten, the sick, the mistreated, the abandoned, and those
with physical defects.
Thank you God, thank you Mission of Love for allowing me to be part of this family.
I believe that there are no words to describe how thankful I feel for all that you
have done in my country."

"The motto of Mission of Love:
are not here to save the world, but to take the hand that reaches out for you.
Thank you. You made a difference." Ashley
"We have just finished unloading the
last of two containers that Mission of Love sent filled with love for the Mayan
people in need of Guatemala. It was a long and bureaucratic process to have the two
containers brought to Tecpan, but finally today the miracle occurred. A group
of over 40 community volunteers (young and elder) joined hands to unload the “Love
Words aren’t enough to express our
people’s gratitude for all the love received.
THANK YOU MISSION OF LOVE !!!"
Eternal gratitude, Edwin
"All last week Kathy Price
and Mission of Love were in Guatemala, finding homeless children and giving them a
home, visiting the orphanage, delivering food to remote villages who are starving,
and the medical team gave the miracle of cleft lip and palate surgeries. We are so
proud to be supporting the efforts of this truly amazing organization, led by Kathy
who is literally a miracle worker. She and her merry band of volunteers load up a
military cargo plane, and fly through the air like ten thousand magic reindeer, to
help the poorest of the poor with compassion and dignity. If you ever want to have
a life-changing experience,
on one of their trips!"

been praying for God to show me where He wanted me to serve him. Out of the blue
one day last spring I received a message from Kathy Price inviting me to come along
on a trip to Guatemala. I thought, OK here is my
departing, I ventured to Douglas's in hopes of seeing his newborn daughter.
When he placed the bundled infant in my arms, it was a confirmation of what Mission
of Love is all about, the children. She, and many others will benefit from
the addition of the new medical/dental clinic, the ambulance, the school bus,
the corn, and whatever else MOL has, and can provide or do for the Mayan community
in Tecpan to enrich their lives. They have surely enriched and touched
"Living this experience was unbelievable for my family
and I. We had the opportunity to live moments of nervousness, sadness and
Read the story about a paraplegic aided by the Mission of Love during their January
2014 trip to Tecpan, Guatemala.
"There were times that we couldn’t hold back the tears but there are many more
occasions for smiles, laughter and joy. We all worked hard and we were always tired
at the end of each day. To meet those who have little or NOTHING and to see their
appreciation and feel their love is one of the best experiences we could ever
"When trying to describe life-giving missions like these
words fail to explain what the soul goes through. We started by evaluating 27
beautiful human beings that generously gave us the opportunity to transform their
faces. This also allowed us to transform not only their parents’ lives and spirits,
but ours as well; now I can understand how the pain of the living God redeems

"By the end of the week there was a
visible shift in the community, and the smiles and hugs were infectious. We
topped off the week with a fiesta at the farm. Our expectations were more
than met when over 300 people showed up to celebrate."
"Of all the valuable things from this
experience is the fact of finding people like Mission of Love volunteers because
they show the best of the Human Being which is the ability to give love, solidarity
and above all hope for the poor, and realize that giving your best effort and work
for others gives you in return much more and above all peace and hope because you
know there are people that make this planet have hope in finding the light of
wishing to be better."
I am really blessed to be able to be
next to all the great people of Mission of love because without them it would be
impossible to help and give all the love that was given this week, they make all
these dreams come true.
"I think every human being realizes
at some point in life that one of their purposes in life is to serve others. To
serve and help the people in need. Some people take their entire life to figure
this out and others catch the idea pretty young in their lives. Personally, I have
been blessed by meeting Mission of Love which is led by Kathy Price and conformed
by an extraordinary group of volunteers. They together have taught me in only one
year this valuable lesson of life." Edwin

"Departure off the boat we were not
only greeted with handshakes, but heartfelt smiles and hugs. You could just see the
hope on their faces and depth of love in their eyes. We all felt like family within
the first ten minutes of our arrival."
"It was a lot of really extrenuous work, but really
gratifying. In the end it was pretty amazing to see all that we accomplished in
such a short amount of time. Take my word for it… If you get the chance to go and
do something like that, do it! You won’t regret it."
"Of all my experiences in the world of medicine and
nursing, the most gratifying and exhilarating time of my life happened recently
when I volunteered for a week at the Hospital Metropolitano in
"The physical work is hard, very hard, and you pay
the price in aches and pains. Why would any American in their right mind do such a
thing? The answer to that question is simple. We, all of us, returned to our homes
as better people than we were when we left."
