Our services aid the areas of: health, agriculture, livestock, community development, also church and faith development.


These same staff members will be offering a 3 day Workshop on: Straw-bale Construction, Dry Composting Toilet, Square Foot Gardening, Recycled Paper and Rain Water Collection Alternatives.


Our GYTTE Office staff, throughout the summer and now continue to coordinate and develop the health materials, props and aids needed for the Basic Health Course which prepares women to become community based primary health workers helping their communities.




More than 500 students and villagers attended the Huixcolotla “Give Ye Them To Eat” exposition.


Our GYTTE personnel want to thank Terry and Muriel Henderson for returning to Mexico to be the volunteer missionary couple in charge during this summer, while our new missionaries: Carmen, Alejandro and their daughter Deborah were sharing the GYTTE Mission with churches within the United States.


God bless the churches that opened their doors and hearts to receive Carmen, Alejandro and Deborah and gave them the opportunity to share our GYTTE Ministry with their congregations. The churches in California were: Northridge UMC, First UMC Pasadena, Yucaipa UMC, UMC Sierra Madre, First UMC Reseda, University UMC Redlands, The Hispanic Church of Jesus Christ Column of Love Redlands,  Community UMC Huntington Beach,  Church of the Foothills UMC Duarte, Saint Andrew UMC- Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo UMC. Various churches in Pennsylvania also received our new missionaries:  Selinsgrove UMC, UMC Trucksville, UMC Shavertown, Country Side UMC, Mount Nittany UMC-State College, and UMC Otterbein-Carlisle. Additionally the Ocala West UMC of Florida and the First Presbyterian Church of Hormigueros, Puerto Rico welcomed them as well.


Remember all the initiatives our GYTTE Ministry provides to impoverished rural sectors help positively transform lives and communities. They are made available through your generous donations. May those gracious givers be blessed abundantly! At this time the needs within rural communities surpass our ability to financially accomplish them. Currently we have only received 29% of our 2014 Advance budget goal of $170,000.00 dollars.  We need your support now more than ever to continue representing Christ’s hands and feet in Mexico, our neighboring country, which is undergoing constant turmoil.
