Founder / Board Emeritus
Barbara is one of the founding members of CARE and served on the Board of Directors for several years. Volunteering as a lay counselor for more than 11 years at the Pregnancy Resource Center and leading post abortion training for volunteers led to her passion to help men and women wounded by abortion. She derives her greatest joy and satisfaction from watching the amazing transformation in the hearts of the participants she leads in post abortion Bible studies. Educating the public on the devastating effects of abortion is also a priority for Barbara. Barbara is married to Keith and they are proud of their three adult children and spouses and nine grandchildren. Her life scriptures are Isaiah 61:1-4 and Revelation 12:11.
Grace English, MD
Founder / Board Emeritus
Grace serves part-time as an Internist with Hospice of East Texas and volunteers at Bethesda Health Clinic. She has been involved in abortion recovery since 2007 and is the founder of the CARE ministry. Grace and her husband John, are active at Green Acres Baptist Church and in various community/civic groups. They are the parents of three school-aged children. Dr. Grace English, M.D. knew from her own abortion experience there was a need for a ministry for women and men who have had abortions and are silently suffering because of the shame and guilt they continue to experience because of their decision to abort. Grace and Barbara Bobo began leading abortion recovery Bible studies in 2007.
In 2010 CARE first began under the umbrella of Green Acres Baptist Church and in 2011 became a 501(c)(3) Non profit organization. Isaiah 61:1-4 speaks to the heart of who we truly are and what God has called us to do.
Isaiah 61:1-4” The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.”
