The History of Ashley Estrada Ministries
HISTORY OF ASHLEY ESTRADA MINISTRIES (AEM)
Even though AEM became a registered 501c3 non-profit entity about four and a half years ago, the work that is presently being done was started by Ashley Estrada over 38 years ago. From his conversion in 1974 after reading Matt 25:31-45. Apostle Estrada has had a drive to practice what Jesus said in that chapter. After graduating from Bible College and accepting the pastorate of a small church, he immediately began and maintained a drive to support missions.
After migrating to the Virgin Islands in the 1980’s, Apostle Estrada established a ministry which started to support missionaries all over the world after six months. Because of his love for missions, he has taken many teams to various nations to be exposed to missions’ work.
After sensing the leading of the Lord to relinquish the pastoral reigns at Kingdom Life he migrated to Orlando to concentrate on helping to build up and support pastors in various parts of the world. A few years ago, AEM decided to take its mission work to another level from just providing financial support to missionaries to becoming engaged in seeking to change the status of individuals by addressing their basic needs. To that end AEM has undertaken to providing fresh water wells to villages in Cambodia, providing medical services, sponsoring education for children who are not afforded the opportunities and the hosting of Pastoral Conferences.
AEM has also been able to purchase land in The Philippines & Cambodia for agricultural purposes and has also been able to build small houses for those who had no homes or who lived in thatched houses. We have also helped in the feeding of the hungry in that country. In the nation of Nigeria, for many years AEM has been involved in the support of an orphanage and in helping to assist in supporting students with their university education. AEM is not only involved in overseas missions, but is also assisting on a national level helping to assist students in college and those with pressing needs from time to time. In the past, AEM has helped to finance college students with their education.
The driving force to the mission of AEM can be found in Proverbs 31:8-9 and Proverbs 24:10-12. It is based on these verses that the ministry has chosen to a “VOICE for the voiceless.” AEM expects to increase its involvement in the nations that its presently serving, as well as other nations.
