Dear Friends in Christ:
Receive greetings from your Mexico missionaries. We hope you are well and enjoying some spring weather in your part of the world. Being we are in Arizona we are enjoying some spectacular vistas of the desert in full bloom.
In Mexico this past winter and early spring the GYTTE staff and we were busy with some wonderful experiences: two one-week-long health courses, two work/study teams, community development courses, many tours of the "Tree of Life" Training Center, the development of Christian Education materials and other course curriculums and the continued construction on the Center. We have all had a good time and the blessings have been abundant.
Back in Mexico the GYTTE personnel keep the mission program going with it's many activities and ministries. Although we communicate by e-mail and phone we have total confidence in this team of dedicated Christians who make up the GYTTE staff. We appreciate your continued support for "Give Ye Them To Eat" as an integrated development program that focuses on the needs of the people of rural Mexico.
his April the GYTTE staff are involved with the medical teams visiting the Southeast Annual Conference. Teams have been scheduled for the Tochimizolco, Tatoxcac and Ixtepec rural clinics and our staff are supportive of these outreach efforts. GYTTE trained health workers teach to the lines of patients waiting to see the physicians and dentists so people can learn to prevent serious disease by changing the conditions which cause it. GYTTE has now trained 121 women to serve in health ministries in their local communities and with the medical teams.
Starting this week, the regional meetings will begin so the community-based primary health care workers can go to a meeting near their own village. These biannual meetings offer a venue for the health workers to share with other women involved in community health services. They also receive ongoing training from the GYTTE staff as well as have their first-aid kits replenished.
Later in the spring workshops will be offered at the Training Center on straw bale and cob construction as well as other low-cost building methods. The staff in Tlancualpican continues with tours of the Center for groups from rural schools and villages where people are searching for development opportunities. The GYTTE team will also host one-day classes on the various subjects offered through GYTTE's Community Development program. These classes are organized in response to the requests of those visiting the Center. (See our website for details on any of the GYTTE ministries: www.gytte.org). While in the USA we can be reached at our e-mail address, GYTTEphm@aol.com, and at our cell-phone number: 928.242.0019. We covet your prayers for the GYTTE staff as they continue in ministry in Mexico as well as for those whom they serve.
In His Grasp,Terry & Muriel Henderson
