Mexico Mission Trip
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.

Westview on the James
“We love church camp and reteats because we always feel welcomed and accepted there. The focus on God and loving one another makes us more aware of our actions and how meaningful it is to 'do good' and 'avoid harm.' It’s good to be with other kids who are just as interested in that as we are. Worship, prayer, and practicing faith are exciting and fun… It is great how you come not knowing very many people and go home having so many friends…it happens every time. Camp helps us be more caring people when we come home. Camp is awesome.”
Westview’s mission is simple: to provide “a place apart” for Christian hospitality and learning that helps people of all ages affirm and grow in their faith as they experience the wonder of God’s creation.
