"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."
