"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."
