Benefit dinner will help church build homes in Mexico

Every summer for the past 13 years, volunteers from Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church have traveled to Tecate, Mexico, to help build family homes.

Teens, college students and adults spend about a week working beneath the hot summer sun, to make progress on a home that will make a world of difference for a family in need.
