Alison came to the World Day of Prayer International Committee in July of 2008 in the position of Administration/Publication and worked in that position until August of 2012. She developed a relationship with the committees and brought her talents and gifts to reaching out to the young women in the movement.
One of her last significant contributions to WDP was seen at the International Meeting in New York, in June 2012. She was fully engaged in the planning and organizing of the justice visits and delivered the ‘sending’ message to empower the delegates to meet the migrant community in New York City.
As she said then, “Part of the goal of these justice visits is to SEE these things—to really SEE the people we are visiting; to really look for God’s presence in the hopes, strengths, and struggles of migrant communities; and to keep our eyes open for wells, for water in dry places, water that nourishes and sustains. So we encourage you to go with open eyes and open hearts to see today.”
Alison left the WDPIC office to follow her passion for ministry by attending seminary.
