In May, 2010 SEM was registered in Yukon, Canada as a Charitable Organization and took over the ministry of another mission organization, JEM, in Ejido Lagunitas. Since inception, SEM has been able to complete a dental clinic and continue expansion of the ministry in the village, including purchase of both a Pastor’s residence and a Youth Centre. SEM helps support Pastor Efren Celiz and his wife Nery, as well as several mission workers. We have purchased a retired 24 passenger bus in order to take the village children to school every day. The villagers are unable to afford a car; many are elderly and often unable to visit a doctor when ill so we assist them with transportation when possible. SEM is happy to be able to continue the ministry started by JEM years ago.
In March 2013 we completed a concrete block Community Church/Meeting Hall to hold approximately 150 people.
Our next project is to purchase some property to be used as a safe playground for the local children as well as a community garden.
