Renewal Story: Brenda
Posted: April 25, 2019
“You can do this.” These four simple words can have a powerful effect on men, women and children who come to Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County.
For guests who struggle with the effects of poverty, addiction or abuse, the need for encouragement is so great. The power of your love, through your gifts and prayers, changes lives every day.
Brenda had spent her whole life with “really mean people. I was not in a healthy living environment, mentally, physically or emotionally.” She eventually fled to a women’s crisis center that referred her to UGM-TC.
With your support, Brenda experienced God’s love and took the first steps towards reclaiming her confidence and self-esteem.
Today, Brenda is coming out of her depression and looking forward to a new beginning with her daughter and grandchildren. In the meantime, she says, “I’m in a safe place. Jesus has been with me this whole time.”
