Alvando Dion Ray is a native Houstonian, who seemed to be counted out early in life. The wretched street life consumed him from the age of 13-34. Drugs, violence, & promiscuity, was the center of his life. Periodic incarceration and lacerations accompanied it all. The knife wounds nor gun shot wounds halted him either. Fast cars, fast money, & fast women kept him moving super fast. Thankfully, GOD saved him before facing the inevitable fate that many of his unfortunate peers suffered. Alvando is now the author of several books, as well as a go to editor. He has a lovely wife and family. Alvando and his wife (Lisa Ray) own their own tax company, landscaping company, and are both writers. They labor side by side in the ministry, spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. They oversee a growing church in their community, Divine Temple of GOD Holiness Church.
