is an Overcomer.
A survivor of multiple
Sexual Assaults as a child, Severe Drug & Alcohol addictions, Murderous Domestic Violence, Suicidal Depression, Witchcraft and more, Sandra continues to pave the way for many to find their way through to complete wholeness in Christ Jesus.
She survived a medical death sentence which left her with no hope for recovery... that was 30 years ago, after suffering for 30 months!
With infection covering nearly 100% of her body, she often found herself stuck to sheets and pillowcases, with handfuls of hair falling out, regularly. After 30 months, she found herself sitting at the back of a church that believed in Miracles!
She was a practicing black-magic witch.
At the very moment and on the brink of drug overdose,
in her lost state of mind, and with no hope left,
God heard her prayer!
Sandra is the Founder of Emerge, a Ministry specifically to the broken, and a Keynote Speaker, both an author and publisher, and minister to many, appearing locally and nationally on Daystar Television Program, Trinity Broadcasting Network, and the 700 Club. She is spiritual daughter to Dodie Osteen, and her interviews with Heart to Heart host Sheila Walsh and Taking A Break's Joni Lamb have been featured globally.

Al Cerda experienced first hand, life as a child of Domestic Violence and Witchcraft, Child Abuse and Childhood Alcoholism, as well as over 20 years of severe Drug Addiction, and more.
Raised in the Occult, and a former 7-fold Backslider, Al Cerda has the unique gift of reaching those others cannot reach. His transparent, compassionate yet bold ministry is rewarded by a powerful anointing, that sets men free!
His powerful testimony of the delivering power of God has allowed many to be freed in Christ Jesus. The boldness in his preaching has stirred many to repentance, and desire to a closer more intimate walk with the Lord. God has anointed Al Cerda in the ministry of deliverance and spiritual warfare.
Al and Sandra Cerda surrendered their lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in 1989 at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. In less than six months, they found themselves in a marriage ceremony with Dodie's ring
on her finger!
