Before Christmas, Ramon was detained by immigration officers as he was driving his teenage son to school. His four children and wife are devastated, and his family of faith in the Arizona region is grieving the loss of his leadership.
Ramon is an essential leader in the work of our church....(and) his absence since his arrest has created quite a hole in our statewide and local ministry."-
-Rev. Jay Hartley, AZ Regional Minister, Disciples of Christ
