The Hemet Valley Baptist Church from Hemet, CA came this July. Their 25 team members came to help for a week at the
seminary (STBC) as well as work with Iglesia de La Hermosa, next to the seminary in Tecate. The team worked hard on construction and maintenance work, including painting, demolition, ground leveling, pouring concrete, and laying brick for a patio area outside of the seminary kitchen. It was hard work in the hot sun and many of the team had never done this kind of work. Some of the ladies did a sewing class while sewing curtains for the seminary classrooms. They left two machines with La Hermosa Baptist Church for them to use as needed. The team also spent time helping La Hermosa reach out to the community around the church. Special services were planned, visits were made where testimonies were shared, and people were invited to come to the church for a special service each evening. One result from the visits was that a family of six prayed to receive Christ.
