December 4-10, 2005, GYTTE hosted the Advanced Health Course, the third of three one-week courses. Seventeen women from towns and villages in six states of the Republic of Mexico participated with fifteen of the women graduating as Community-Based Primary Health Workers.

In January 2006 the students from the “Gonzalo Baez Camargo” Methodist Seminary in Mexico City attended a course on Rural Development at GYTTE’s Tree of Life Training Center. The objective was to introduce future pastors to the life and the needs of the rural sector. They learned how to use and teach a number of low-tech ideas in response to those needs and how the church can be a channel for development opportunities.

A quote from the Seminary’s Academic Dean: “The students were ecstatic with their learning experiences and have already put the solar cooker they made into use at the seminary.” Cherie White de Velasco,


In February 2006 eleven UMC members from southern Indiana churches and two members of Washington Street UMC in Columbia, SC. participated in a 9-day work/study experience.
