Mexico Mission Trip, Jan. 2013
On January 4 - 13, 2013, 12 Mission Team Members (10 from Virginia and 2 from California) traveled to the Tree of Life Training Center near Tlancualpican, Mexico to work with the Hendersons and the Give Ye Them To Eat (GYTTE) program staff. While there the team became more AWARE of the rural reality of the rural poor people of Mexico. In addition to becoming AWARE the team worked on several construction projects at the Center -- replaced a tile roof; replaced a palm branch roof with a rice straw roof; dismantled the old fencing on two livestock pens and installed new fencing; and worked extensively on the land and facilities for a new playground at the Center. Other highlights included celebrating Three Kings Day with the local Methodist Church congregation and attending a GYTTE public workshop in a neighboring community on domestic violence. For information about the GYTTE Program administered by Terry and Muriel Henderson, Methodist Missionaries, visit their web site at www.gytte.org.
