A Spiritual Invitation From the Founders
All ministries of BFAMI are biblically based. We have no other authority or solution but the Word of God. We hope this does not preclude your attendance. You are accepted with whatever beliefs you may have.
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” II Timothy 3:16 NKJV
The common denominator among many participants in this ministry is the emotional pain following abortion and sexual abuse.
BFAMI was established as a post-abortion ministry, however, over the years the ministry has grown to reach multiple issues of heartbreak. This has given birth to Transformed by Grace, a two-day non-denomination healing Encounter, which brings all manner of emotional trauma to the healing Word of God
BFAMI is non-denominational and any doctrine, contrary to God’s Word is not allowed. All teaching is from the Holy Bible, God’s infallible Word. All ministry of BFAMI is submitted to the spiritual authority of our Board of Directors and our Pastors, Randy and Jana Meeks.
The foundational Scripture for BFAMI is Isaiah 61.1 – 3. Jesus is the healer of the brokenhearted
You are welcome,
Ray & Lana Sanders
Lana and Ray Sanders
Lana, with her husband Ray, are the Co-Founders and Directors of Beauty for Ashes Ministries International. Working with trained facilitators, and ministering God’s Word, Lana has facilitated recovery to hundreds of emotionally wounded women following abortion and sexual abuse.
Lana and Ray Sanders have been married for over 30 years. They are both ordained ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ and serve as lay ministers at Lindale Church, under Pastors Randy and Jana Meeks. Ray and Lana have three grown sons and ten grandchildren.
Lana and Ray have been in pro-life ministry together for twenty years, first serving as Crisis Pregnancy Center volunteers and board members. Together they founded and directed the Crisis Pregnancy Center Central – directly behind Planned Parenthood, seeing thousands of babies saved from abortion.
She is a published author of Pro-life Resources and a journal series entitled, Written In Red. She writes and teaches a Bible study in her church; teaches a Bible Study Fellowship called Feed My Sheep, and speaks at conferences and retreats across America. She has been the guest speaker on several local Christian radio and television programs and hosted her own Christian television program, “Lifetime” on KLTJ TV for one year.
Lana testified before a Texas Senate Sub-Committee in May 2003, that resulted in the passing of House Bill 15 which gives a woman the right to know the risks of abortion, see the development of a baby in the womb, and mandate a 24-hour waiting period before abortion. She was present when Governor Rick Perry signed the bill into Texas law, January 2004.
The passion of her heart has always been to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost. Her joy is to see the captives set free from emotional pain, by the teaching of the Word of God, and to see God’s children walk in the freedom Christ paid for by His holy blood. She ministers the truth of God’s Word so that families can heal, which makes the church stronger, and will make America mighty again in righteousness.
The finished work of the Cross of Christ is the centerpiece of Lana’s heart, life, and ministry.
