Stephen Hall, minister to students at NorthPark Baptist Church, Trussville, led a team of 35 students and adults to Cuidad Victoria, Mexico, May 27–June 2.
The team partnered with Mega Mission to build a church for a congregation in a small village, which had been meeting in a shack-type building without lights or power.
They visited several impoverished areas, bringing lunches and items such as sunglasses and hats.
A doctor, a pediatrician and a nurse on the team also helped host a clinic two evenings during the trip.
Some of the students on the team, speaking broken Spanish, had the opportunity to lead a few people to the Lord, Hall said.
The annual trip sets out the Saturday after high school graduation each year. This year, three graduates chose to go on the trip instead of a traditional senior trip. “I was encouraged to see our students and adults working together in the hot sun … and to see the church being proactive to share the gospel,” Hall said.
