Ron Estrada, born in Queens, NY, has been walking with Jesus since October 7, 1984, when the Lord instantaneously revealed Himself and imparted to him a gift of supernatural faith; and ever since, he is a lover of God’s Word and the spirit of His Laws.
He is also the father of Jaime Marie, who graduated at the top of her class and earned a full scholarship to a prestigious four year college in Massachusetts. After graduation she was employed by an Ivy League University with full scholarship to earn her Masters. The Lords blessings are abundant to the families of those who serve Him.
In the first year of his renewed life, following the leading of Holy Spirit to “Go live with the homeless,” after work as a computer-aided designer, Ron would share food, live, and sleep in a park with the homeless. Ron’s meditation prior and during this mission was Isaiah 58, in which God describes the true fast.
On a Thursday evening he met a homeless young man with paralysis of the neck from a motorcycle accident. Ron interceded for this man, based on God’s promise in verse 8, “…your light will break out like the dawn and your recovery will speedily spring forth,” and his obedience to verse 10, “…if you give yourself to the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted,” Ron confidently asked the Father to grant recovery to the young man. The following Saturday morning when Ron next saw this young homeless man, the paralysis of his neck had been healed with praises to Jesus as other Christians had also come to pray for his healing which manifested to the glory of God.
Ron based his ministry for his countrymen in Taiwan, where he lived for 10 years, during three tours, on prayer and intercession for people lost to the false religions of Buddhism, Taoism, and local superstitions. He has had the pleasure of seeing God bring many he has interceded for come to saving faith and in seeing first time visits of God’s generals to Taiwan, such as Bill Johnson of Bethel Church and Reinhard Bonnke of Christ for all Nations; to minister to the lost thousands for the first time and annually since.
Fulfilling God’s calling of Isaiah 58 upon his life within the U.S., Ron trained and ministered healing and deliverance at the House of Healing in Phoenix, AZ for a year and witnessed many receive instantaneous physical healings and deliverance from mental oppressions of evil spirits that often require much patient perseverance in casting out. Ron is now taking his faith and gifts to the lost on the highways and byways, inviting them to partake in the marriage feast of the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

Stacey has a passion to share Christ’s love with the young generation. Her heart is for the lost, homeless, hurting women, addicts, and children on the street.
I didn’t meet Jesus as my Savior until I was an adult. Looking back I can see how He has had His hand on me throughout my life. If you knew my testimony then you would know I should have been a statistic, but God said, “She is mine!”
I have been blessed in my professional life to work with International Charities in Resource Development and as a Consultant in Leadership Development. Through this experience, God has shown me how to apply what I have learned to His Kingdom purpose. I also apply my creativity and passion through the written word as a writer.
I have had the honor of sitting on the Board for Cumberland, MD, Lighthouse, Womens AGLOW. Through this I have learned and appreciated the heart of my sisters in Christ. I have also had the wonderful experience of serving the youth in the inner city, through Evangelistic outreach, with Just Jesus Ministries.
Never passing up the chance to share God’s love, I have also been privileged to love on people through Nursing Home Ministry. What started as an emergency stand-by really became a joy for me. During this time I was actively involved in youth ministry leadership with my home church, so my challenge was… “How do I minister to senior citizens, since I was so used to youth?” (Yes, I can be a little theatrical and high energy) But, what God has shown me, it is the matter of the heart. It is speaking to the heart of His children; no matter if they are 16 or 92.
I have been blessed to see, and be a part of, people coming to the Lord and being set free. I have witnessed the Holy Spirit move in people’s lives and completely turn that life around for His glory. I have served in soup kitchens, prison ministry, and pregnancy support centers, anywhere I could just love on people. God has been so gracious to me.
I know where I came from, yet He still loves me. This is the message I share with others; it does not matter where you come from, your past does not dictate your future! God has a plan and purpose for you. He created you with tender hands and with His breath. We must know who we are in Him and Who He is.
Favorite Bible Verse: And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. –Romans 8:28
JJ is kind of the team mascot. He travels everywhere Stacey travels. God uses him to draw a crowd, people just gravitate to JJ. He is so friendly. I will call him the team evangelist, because he can draw the crowd so they can hear the Good News of Christ!
He loves all people! He is housebroken, friendly, and loves treats.

Favorite Bible Verse:
Lorraine’s: “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. “If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk…” –Isaiah 58:6-9
Jim’s: Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.” –John 11:25
