Dr Gayla Holley
Gayla was born in Benton, Illinois to Sam and Joyce Latta in 1958. Adventure came early as a tornado ripped through the small town. Only 3 days old, while held in her father’s arms, their home was destroyed with them inside. Miraculously the family of four survived the tornado.
At age 7 Gayla moved with her parents and three brothers to Liberia, West Africa, 65 miles from the nearest motor road in a mud house located central to a jungle village called Fassama. Along with three brothers, Gayla attended school taught by her mother. The experience of this early adventure provided her with an early education in humanitarian mission work, which impacted her for life.
Upon return to the United States, Gayla met and married Evangelist Gregory Holley on December 27, 1975. As itinerant ministers and teachers, the couple traveled throughout the world as Ambassadors of New Life Foundation. Together they brought supplies and hope to many nations teaching, educating, feeding, bringing medicine and clothing to those less fortunate. Over the years 33 nations were impacted.
Gayla birthed their daughter, Angela, in Harare, Zimbabwe, having survived the civil war of Rhodesia. After the war they returned to the USA to build a pipeline of supply for the impoverished. She also home schooled their daughter for 10 years.
Supporting orphanages for hurting children, and homes for those who are in poverty, her compassion for the young, encircles the world. Dr Gayla founded the organization MOMS AGAINST HUNGER , which feeds hundreds of thousands of children and their mothers around the world annually. MAH assists others in setting food pantries to provide for local communities, as well as offers aid in disasters for earthquake victims, hurricanes, floods, fires and tornados in the USA.
Millions of packages of formulated rice meals have been distributed in many nations to provide essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals and vital nourishment to the starving through her efforts. Zimbabwe, Pakistan, Ghana, Liberia, Kenya, Mexico, Romania, Belize, Malawi, Haiti, Guatemala, Fiji, Honduras, Zambia, India and Mauritius are just a few of the list of nations that have received aid in food and supplies to the impoverished.
