Rebecca Heib was born and raised in Seattle, WA. At age 22, she received Christ as her personal Lord and Savior and began regularly studying the Bible. In 1998, she attended “The Voice of the Martyrs” conference in Irvine, CA. which featured powerful testimonies of missionaries from all over the world…including Pastor Richard Wurmbrand himself! It was at that very moment that the Lord put a desire for missions in Rebecca’s heart.

The main message at the VOM conference was “pray for us!” Being a new believer, Rebecca desired to learn more about prayer and began regularly praying for the persecuted church. This led to a deeper prayer life and a hunger to grow in the Lord.

In September of 2000, Rebecca opened a business in Issaquah, WA…a studio in Gilman Village offering music and dance instruction to children. Running a business taught Rebecca how to trust God in a deeper way and she learned what it truly means to “walk by faith and not by sight.”

In 2018, Rebecca was introduced to Tecate Mission International and the Lord placed on her heart the desire to serve as a missionary there. In 2020, God opened doors for her to return to Tecate and serve for  6-weeks. During this time, Rebecca interviewed with the Tecate Missions Board and was accepted as a full-time missionary.

Rebecca is answering the call of God and is serving as a missionary teacher with Tecate Mission International. She is currently teaching at Tecate Christian School, which is a ministry of Tecate Mission, located on the Mexican/California border.

With a love for people and a deep burden to see individuals come to a personal relationship with Jesus, Rebecca is actively involved in evangelism and discipleship while teaching 6th grade to children who live in Tecate, Mexico. Rebecca’s goal is to share the love of Jesus throughout the community there, both in word and in action.

Every day, about 80-children who live in Mexico cross the International border to attend Tecate Christian School. Not only does Tecate Mission provide this vital education to these kids, they also provide ongoing support to all of their families. Rebecca regularly walks across the border into Mexico to meet with children and their families as well.

Tecate Mission International is a 501C non-profit, faith mission with all staff and personnel responsible for raising their own support team. From the librarian to the bookkeeper, to the secretary and every teacher, each staff member at Tecate Christian School is completely dependent on God to supply all of their needs. This is so we can devote all of our time and energy to serving our community with the love of Jesus.

Thank you for choosing to invest in the work the Lord is doing in and through me.
