  • Human Interest Story: Amanda Taga

    Twenty- nine years ago Amanda Taga came into the world in Tirana, Albania. At that time the nation was under control of a communist regime that was persecuting all who disagreed with them. She and her family went to Florence, Italy and on to the USA. They were fortunate and thought that all of the children could now chase the American dream.

    The family had never had any form of faith in their lives and Amanda began to seek “something” that was missing in her life. She had dropped out of high school, turned to drugs, alcohol, and the party scene. In this search she tried spiritualism, Muslim, wiccan and the Catholic church. Finally her search ended when she accepted Christ as her Savior. Life didn’t get any easier for her after her salvation experience. Through a series of events she found herself in Las Cruces, on the street, and was brought to the Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission by the police. She stayed for about a month before another series of events, including a trip back to family in Michigan, took her back to an on again – off again relationship with a man here in Las Cruces. She was soon kicked out of the house and ended up back at LCGRM.

    It was at this point that her life really took on meaning and she began to grow. Her relationship with Christ started to take shape, she had a joyful spirit, and a desire to give rather than receive. The mission has become her home. She talks about the Lord almost non- stop. She was baptized in a local church and has a zeal and infectious spirit. She attends Bible study four days a week, works forty hours, and attends Chapel services.

    To close let’s look at her own words. “The person I used to be, and the person I am today is a true testimony of the Lord’s work in my life. I can say the LCGRM is God sent, and is a place for true intervention. …Accept Jesus into your heart, and surrender your life to Him, he can do the same in your life.”

  • Thank You Everyone

    I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our donors and supporters for their financial, in kind, and prayer gifts to us.

    We know that you are thinking of us because of your dedicated support.

    I would like you to also pray for some of our long range needs.

    At some point we will need additional buildings and/or remodeling.

    Please keep these in mind as you pray for us.

  • Upcoming Projects – Summer 2017

    We will soon be doing some projects on some of our buildings.

    We will start with the two story apartment and garage which needs to be power washed and repainted.

    We will then do the staff house with stucco crack repair and a new color coating.

  • AGRM Convention

    Three staff members were able to go to the national Association of Gospel Rescue Mission convention that was held in Dallas in May.

    We learned many things that will enhance our ministry here in Las Cruces.

    I am holding some of the folders from just one seminar.

  • Vans Needed

    A need for more vehicles has come to light.

    We are in need of a cargo van to pick up supplies.

    The Mission Manager has been using his personal car for some time to do much of this.

    We also would like to get a passenger van to take our programmers to off-site events that would be beneficial to their spiritual growth and some that were for fun events.

  • Mission Caps

    We have designed some caps that can be useful in telling the story of the Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission to everyone you meet.

    They will see our logo and ask you more about the mission.

    Please call me at 575-496-1637 or drop by the mission, 1050 W. Amador, to learn more about these beautiful baseball caps.
