I first encountered Alaya Ministries at their event Divas on the Rise. It was was an awesome experience. Women were encouraged, uplifted, acknowledged, and rewarded for their service to the community. Ever since then I have been a fan and supporter of Alaya Ministries. I am an Executive Director of a non-profit organization myself, so I know how challenging it can be to serve the community and stay on budget. I encourage anyone to donate to this organization, I know they have a heart for their mission and are truly doing a great work.

My Ministry W.S.O.H.O.M.M was a sponsor on their Outreach as well as a participant in their E.S.S. WALKATHON (empty sella syndrome) that was to educate women who have not been able to become pregnant and suffer from this syndrome. The purpose of that walkathon brought awareness to the community of Missouri City, Texas and also women across the globe. A.L.A.Y.A. is obtaining ways to have more research in finding out how your pituary gland becomes empty and educate women as well as men. I have worked on other Community Outreach Projects with A.L.A.Y.A. Ministries as they partnered with W.S.O.H.O.M.M. in the area of providing school supplies to the Third Ward Community in The Cuney Homes Housing Apartments, or just children who were in need by word of mouth through our ministry as mothers of low income would call me and have a need to register their children in school and needed school supplies, I called A.L.A.Y.A. Ministries we met off the beltway she gave me back packs for a boy and a girl and distributed the supplies to needed children. Mrs. Colquitt is an awesome women of God and it is a honor and privilege to partner with her in Community Outreach Projects. She is a young woman of excellence and integrity.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Being educated of a syndrome that I was not aware that existed. I were not aware that women were experiencing this in their lifes and as a women, I could empathize with them in some aspect but not in the aspect of not being able to bare a child, being that I was blessed with three children. It gave me an appreciation for women who suffer in this magnitued and be prayerful for them.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I was able to network with other organizations in the areas of health, foods & family. I can go to ALAYA Ministries and get tips o how to do a walkathon.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

It made me feel great, supportive, overwhelmed, a blessing, a grand opportunity to be apart of an organization that has gone to this magnitude to educate others and share her testimony of what she has experienced with the empty sella syndrome.

When first asked to be the Recording Secretary for th ALAYA Ministries, I was in no way hesitant. To me, anything you are going to do for God and to represent Him, I am all for it. ALAYA has really opened the door of potential for me by allowing me to see myself. Seeing something that was inside of me from birth and allowing myself to let it go and develop. ALAYA has taught me that all things are possible with Christ Jesus. There is no limit on what can be done. The possibilities out there. All I woud have to do is believe and grab them. Being a single parent, I have had to use this a lot. ALAYA has reached in and taught me just that. Plus the outreach to younger kids of school age has been great. They look up to you for attention and development. ALAYA is there to help them and all.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

ALAYA Ministries was founded by my closest and dearest friend of 21 years. Our goal is to provide various services to our community and assist them with their spiritual needs as well . We at ALAYA want to reach out to the youth of the community and keep them on track with reaching the goals they have set forth on their life's journey.
