Need some welding done

The drivers side window hoop on my full doors separated. I've read threads suggesting mig welding it back together. But I don't know how to weld so I'm looking for help. I'm in Angleton, anyone know where I can get it done cheap but good. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

Just strip off the paint and any rust in that spot. My little welder is buried in the garage right now but I'll have it cleaned up soon.
