The story of our founder
Carlos Garcia grew up on the streets of Ciudad Juarez. At 15 years old, he migrated to the United States, but by that time was already heavily involved in the drug scene and was crossing drugs from Mexico into the United States.
In 1987, Carlos gave his life to Jesus and left his old life behind. In 1992, a friend invited him back to Juarez to volunteer and he said yes. God used that trip, and several others, to call him back to his roots and minister in Ciudad Juarez to reach people who were without hope.
Carlos organized weekend trips to Juarez with his family and people from his local church in Santa Fe, NM. From those early trips, the ministry of Amigo Fiel was born.
