Lionel and Liz came to Albuquerque to flee the drug scene in El Paso that they were involved in. After a short time in Albuquerque they decided to go to New York City. The day before leaving they walked past God Cares About You Mission, and they were invited to come in for a meal and the Bible study. The Lord used that little invitation and His powerful Word to touch their hearts in a life-changing way. Today they are faithful Christians, driven by the love of Jesus to share the Gospel and help those in need. Lionel is Director of the Mission, and Liz is a leader of various programs. Both are now members of Christ Lutheran Church.
Brenda came to Albuquerque from California, where she had 43 drug overdose episodes. She started coming to God Cares About You Mission and was able to kick her drug habit. She said, “It was not one thing at the Mission that made the difference. It was everything: the counseling, Bible studies, the love and acceptance she received, and her volunteer service at the Mission.” She was baptized at God Cares About You by Pastor Groeling. Brenda is now one of the leaders in the Food and Clothing Distribution Programs. She knows that Jesus worked in her heart to give her a new life in Him, free from drugs and strong in her faith.
