Rev. Ana Martinez, the inspiration for Ana’s
Home, began her ministry with Teen Challenge in 1967, along with her husband, Bishop Emilio Martinez. Ana’s strong belief in II Corinthians 5:17affirmed that the Word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit would heal, restore, and give purpose to each student.
They served for 17 years there and the ministry they were involved in was verified to have a 75% success rate. Her ministry continued to bear fruit over the years as she served in other places planting churches in Mexico and across the United States. Bishop Samuel is one of her spiritual sons and is founding Ana’s Home in her honor.
Through the same tried and true principles used in founding the men’s home, Ana’s impact will continue to touch future generations.
