FROM THE ASHES WE RISE
About a year and a half ago an electrical fire destroyed our thrift store and its contents, and left us with just a shell of a building that needed to be gutted and remodeled. At the time it looked like a daunting task, but with faith that God our Father works out all things for our good and for his purpose, our staff and residents at the mission (Las Cruces Gospel Mission) set out to rebuild our thrift store.
What followed was truly amazing, and now we not only have a newly remodeled thrift and furniture store called the “Rock of Ages Thrift Store, we also have a new cleaning supply distributorship called “Mission Cleaning Supplies” within the same building.
Not only does 100 % of all of our revenues go back to supporting the work at the Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission, our stores also provide our mission residents the opportunity for work as well as for job training. What looked like a disaster (the fire) at that time has truly turned into a real blessing for all of us at the mission. Praise be to God!
