El Paso Project Serve focuses on engaging students in serving the community of Sparks in Far East El Paso. Sparks, is a very poor area with unpaved roads, makeshift homes, primitive utilities and many needs-both physical and spiritual. The conditions in this community are very similar to those in the “colonias” of Juarez, Mexico, but they are right here in our own city. We have partnered with a church in Sparks called “El Sembrador,” which means “The Sower.” Their desire is to sow the seed of the Gospel to everyone in Sparks and to help meet their needs through following Jesus Christ. Pastor Roberto Espinoza has led the congregation, along with his wife and daughter, for the past 20 years. By participating in their church’s ministry, helping with some minor to moderate construction projects, and helping with their summer’s VBS, we will prayerfully help El Sembrador continue to reach their community.
