Miracle mechanics are changing lives one car at a time

CONROE, Texas (KTRK) -- He's helped dozens of single moms and military wives get back on their feet and back on the road, and now his mission is reaching new heights after getting a Foti High Five.

God's Garage has now moved-in to a new garage that will help the crew fix up more cars to give away to deserving women. It's more than 3,500 square feet and includes three lifts, new shiny tools and tool boxes and even more manpower. Twenty mechanics are now volunteering to give the one thing that's missing for some many of the recipients, hope.

"If we could just get a heart to help people, I think our world would be different," said founder Pastor Chris Williams. "When I started this, I thought it was something we would do once or twice a week."

ABC13 caught up with one of the deserving recipients of a God's Garage car, Susan Laniewski. She was presented with a car on live TV. Since then, she's become the biggest supporter for the nonprofit group.

"Numerous people in my life were blessed by this," said Laniewski. "I probably cried for a good hour. My daughter would vouch for that."

Laniewski has a special needs daughter. Before receiving a car from God's Garage, her car often times broke down on the side of the road. She said her daughter would constantly miss doctors appointments, but now she no longer does.

"I really feel that's God's call on me. I was blessed to go out and show others," said Laniewski.
