“Juarez Insanity,” a TV story by Scott Carrier and videographer Lisa Miller, aired on PBS Religion and Ethics Newsweekly series. Scott and Lisa spent time with José Antonio Galván, a born-again preacher in Juárez, Mexico, who cares for homeless drug-addicted, mentally ill street people with no place to live but El Pastor’s shelter (Albergue Para Discapacitaros Mentales) out in the desert just south of the U.S. border.
I’ve got 110 patients, my “childs,” that are my childs, not my patients, my childs, and this is a mental institution, especially for the person of the streets. For the people who they lay down on the streets like trash, nobody wants them except Jesus Christ and your server, his servant.
