"My wife Sylvia and I have been working together in Juarez, Mexico for the past thirteen years as church planters.  During this time BPS has been instrumental in allowing us to evangelize many neighborhoods with the gospel through the [p]uppet ministry and the distribution of Spanish John and Romans.  Not only have we seen dozens of precious souls saved, but many have become members of our church.  We praise God for using BPS to reach the multitudes with the good news of Jesus Christ. 

May I encourage all Pastors and Youth leaders to consider taking a short-term Missions trip to Juarez.  It is economic in price and close to the United States border.  The violence has never affected us during our time in Juarez,  except for one small incident in 2012. Most of the violence is between the cartels themselves. May the Lord bless you in your endeavors to prepare the next generation of servants for the world's vast mission field."

"I was a truck driver for a dairy in Oklahoma City. My pastor invited my wife and I on to go on a mission trip to Mexico with BPS. I took my vacation and went. I saw things I have never seen – like 17 men kneel in the dirt and accept Christ. I saw more than 300 people respond during a public invitation to receive Christ. The Lord used that trip and these events open my eyes to the need, and to call me to be a missionary to Mexico.

We’ve now been missionaries over 20 years. By God’s grace we’ve helped establish nine churches and seen thousands of professions of faith. Since the Lord moved us to Juarez in 2002, BPS has helped our ministry of church planting. I believe they have had groups work with most of the different churches we’ve helped establish here (7 total).

The BPS groups help us to identify prospects, impact the neighborhoods around the churches with evangelism and awareness, involve our people in evangelistic outreach, and give a great shot of encouragement to all involved. [...] There is a long-term impact to the BPS ministry. I’m sure there are dozens if not hundreds of our church members who could trace their salvation back to one of these trips. In reality, they all could since that is how I got my start in the ministry."

"In 2011, the Lord allowed us to receive help from BPS [El Paso] I with an open air service, where more than 650 people were preached too, and more than 60 were saved.  Pastor Alberto DeAnda, and I were then able to begin the very next morning meeting with more than 48 of the new converts. Within the next three year, the Lord allowed us to establish the Sunday school program, our missions program, and our bible institute. 

The fruits of the experiences that I have had with BPS, are innumerable, with thousands hearing the gospel, being saved, baptized and added to local churches. The Lord has given us the charge of the great commission, and Bearing Precious Seed is helping local churches do there part in the completion of this mandate.  This local church ministry, is a great help to local churches in Mexico, and our pastors there are able to have receive the contacts they need to begin the establishment of their churches.  There is no greater joy than to see people bring others to Christ.  I want to encourage you go consider a trip into Mexico because you will not only help our churches in Juarez, MX, but you will also see the changes that God will make in the hearts of your people."

"In July of 2013, I had the great privilege of going on a missions trip to Mexico with Bearing Precious Seed El Paso. I had taken a trip with another church group 5 years prior and loved the people and the culture. I was also very excited to get to spend a whole week with our youth group. I prayed that the Lord would show me something while there that I could take back home and apply in my life. While we were in Mexico we were able to work with a national pastor who had a daughter Naomi who was 8 years old, the same age as my oldest daughter. I instantly fell in love with her. She was in my group and translated for us often. She would witness and invite people with such ease and was always so happy. Upon returning home, I explained to my oldest daughter that Naomi would go door to door and approach any person and invite them to church, without hesitation. My oldest daughter said, "an 8 year old did that? Can I do that?" I was so excited to see her joy and desire to go witnessing. I realized then that this is what the Lord wanted me to take from the trip—the need to continue to encourage my children to tell others of Jesus. My continual prayer is that my kids' desire will never go out but stay aflame and that I can feed that desire in their lives! I am thankful for what God showed me while in El Paso."

"The cities of El Paso, TX and Juarez, Mexico have become some of my favorite places on earth. When I arrived at Bearing Precious Seed, El Paso for the first time four summers ago, I thought I knew what to expect. My church had been going on BPS mission trips for years, and I had heard all the stories. Meet up with a Mexican church, canvas the neighborhoods passing out Gospel tracts, hold evangelistic meetings. That's all true, but it's so much more. God blew me away at every step. The sweet spirit of the Mexican church as they welcomed a group of Americans into their service, people stopping their cars to take the tracts we were passing out, watching dozens of people put their faith in Jesus. It was overwhelming. In the years since that first trip, I've been blessed to return to BPS El Paso each summer for various periods of time. That feeling of being blown away by watching God work has never left. I go down to BPS expecting to see God work – actively watching for how He will answer prayers, meet needs, and draw people to Himself. He hasn't disappointed me yet. I think that's why it's one of my favorite places to be."

“It was such a blessing to be able to come on the missions trip and just see how God worked in everybody’s lives. It was a blessing to be able to talk to the little kids, to just see them with smiles on their faces, and to love on them like they were a part of our lives."
