An Opportunity to Be A Part

Since 1978, the ministry of Bearing Precious Seed El Paso has been taking church groups from all over the country and helping them go on mission trips into Mexico. In 1980, the Lord led the ministry founder, Dr. Carlos Demarest, to purchase some land and begin building the facilities that have been visited by thousands of guests. These guests have come on week-long mission trips and have seen God do amazing things while they were obedient in taking the Gospel to the lost. We are thankful that the Lord allowed our ministry to have the facilities that we have had for these many years. 

Although the staff has changed over the years, we still facilitate mission trips throughout the year and still see several church groups come from all over the country. When the groups come, we are privileged to provide lodging in our main building as we have done for these last 34 years. However, as with many buildings, the roof has come into a state where it needs to be replaced. The purpose of this update is to provide information about how each person can be a part of the work of Bearing Precious Seed El Paso.

As we have prayed as a ministry family for this need, the Lord has placed on our heart the vision to invite others to help meet the need. We know that the Lord can easily provide any need that is in His work, as He always does. We also know that He has often used His people to meet that need. Perhaps the Lord will use you to help meet the need. 

In planning for the costs of this project, we have anticipated needing $25,000 - $28,000 to complete the project. The cost includes the metal roof materials, hiring a professional crew to install the roof, and replacing the water evaporation coolers with refrigerated air units. The current water evaporation coolers leak and cause rust spots on the roof which lead to interior damage. By removing the old units and replacing them with newer coolers, we will be able to keep the units off of the roof and finally repair all interior damage.

While the overall cost may be overwhelming to consider, we have been able to break it down to where anyone can participate and give to this project. For only $3 a square foot, anyone can participate in helping us meet our goal. This is a great project for a Sunday School class, a youth group, a whole church, or simply anyone who feels led to give. Perhaps you desire to give to a missions project in the New Year. As we pray and give towards this project, we are looking forward to seeing others join us. 

Through this project, we are inviting everyone who hears of this need to participate in one of three ways. First, we desire everyone to pray with us that God would meet this need in His time and in His way. We are trusting in Him alone and prayer support is of far more value than any financial gift we could ever receive. Second, we invite you to pray about giving financially to this project. Your gift, no matter the size, will be a tremendous blessing to our missions ministry and those who come on a mission trip. Third, we would invite you to visit us on a mission trip and see the work that God has called us to. 

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share our heart with you and extend an invitation to be a part of this project. If you would like to be a part of helping meet this need, please email us at You may also contact our Director, Kenn Winn, at 513-617-8583. If the Lord leads you to give financially, please send the gift to the following address:
