Lana and Ray Sanders have been married for 35 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 & Lana have three grown sons and seven grandchildren.
Lana and Ray have been in pro-life ministries together for over twenty years, first serving as Crisis Pregnancy Center volunteers and board members. Then answering the call of God, together they founded and directed the Crisis Pregnancy Center Central – directly behind Planned Parenthood, seeing thousands of babies saved from abortion.
Lana is the Founder and Director of Beauty for Ashes Ministries International. Working with facilitators she has trained, and ministering God’s Word. BFAMI has facilitated recovery to hundreds of emotionally-wounded women following abortion and sexual abuse. Now through a new model of ministry called Transformed by Grace, BFAMI is reaching women with multiple issues of heart break.
She is a published author of Pro-life Resources, training manuals and a journal series titled, Written in Red. She writes and teaches Bible studies in her church twice a week 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 for one year.
Lana testified before a Texas Senate Committee in May 2003, resulting 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 mandating 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 powerful 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 families can heal, making the church stronger, and America mighty again in righteousness. All Lana does for the Lord is Christ-centered and Cross-anchored. The finished work of the Cross of Christ is the centerpiece of Lana’s heart, life, and anchor of her ministry.
