    From Freestyle to Faith


    MMMinistry is a Long Island - faith based ministry. The founding leader of the ministry, Sally Ann Heyward, is on a mission to help God’s people, one person at a time. Here is a brief interview with her:

    1. Many many moons ago, you were a Freestyle artist known as Cachea. You opened up for acts like Cynthia and Safire. Tell us about that:

    I always enjoyed singing. Every morning, noon and night... everyday... everywhere! As a child, young adult, and still today, I have been blessed with the gift to sing. I was a Theatrical Arts major all through school and college. I performed in various clubs, cafes, theatre groups and I was getting ready to tour through  Europe when my manager had a heart attack. Without support, I could not continue my musical career.

    That is when I went back to school and received my NYS Cosmetology license. I am loving 30 years in the industry! I still sing in church, with worship teams, in cafe's and for my clients, but I lift up my voice to the Lord and praise His Holy Name! I never knew as you got older, that your voice gets better. Amen!

    1. How has your life changed since then?

    I am the wife of a NYC fireman, a mother of two sons, and in 2009 I became a believer in Jesus Christ. My life changed the day my boys were diagnosed with Autism. A new journey of seeking the truth began. I found Christ during these struggling times. My marriage was in the middle of an ugly divorce and my children needed daily medical and educational support. I was searching for answers and the power of prayer brought me through a transformation, restoration and healing. God is so awesome! My marriage is restored, my children are in recovery and I am saved! Amen! I walk in Faith everyday. I know God is with me; I am His beloved!

    1. Sally Ann, what were your intentions when you started Moving Mountain Ministry?

    While struggling through the divorce, I was led to go back to school to keep my mind occupied and not focus on the bad, but on the good of what was about to happen in my life. I became an AADP NYS Holistic Health Coach. The Lord gave me a vision to submit to a Ministry to help heal His people. On December 12, 2012, I registered 'Moving Mountain Ministry'. Today we are incorporated and we are applying for our 501 C 3. We have a devoted Godly team of seven  members who volunteer their gifts, talents, and are very excited to share the Good News of healing with many.


    Everyone has a mountain only God can move it.


    Mark 11:23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea, and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.”

    1. Who are you trying to reach with this ministry?

    Anyone who has a mountain in their life will benefit from the program;

    the lost, broken, sick. Many of our friends and family members are sick, depressed or struggling to loose weight. They have tried every diet plan and it did not work. This program is a way to teach you to live healthy. “Eat. Pray. Live. The healthy life God intended you to live!” We encourage anyone to embark on this journey with us and be delivered from the lies of the enemy. When man says no,  God says YES, “I am the light of the world... take courage, do not be afraid, I am with you." I am thankful and grateful the Lord has given me a heart to serve Him in a mighty way and Help Heal His People! Amen!

    1. What has been your biggest challenge to date?

    My challenge is to keep my eyes on Jesus! "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."-Phil 4:13. I am reminded everyday whom I belong to and whom I serve. Life is not the challenge, surrendering your complete control in life and asking the Lord to guide your every move while I patiently wait on Him is my daily challenge.The Lord provides all the needs of this Ministry, it is all in His time!

    1. What are your goals for 2014?

    The Lord is bringing increase! I started in my living room in 2012 with ten people. Today we can fit up one hundred people at 'Samantha's Li'l Bit of Heaven' with all the technology that will help support the ministry's needs. MMMinistry has been blessed with a group of Godly devoted volunteers with a heart to serve the Lord in a mighty way. They are willing and able to share their gifts and talents for the cause of healing God's temple, your body.

    I live for today, for tomorrow has it's own worries! I thank God for blessing me so I can bless others in His name.  May the Lord bring healing upon each and every person that needs to move a mountain while finding peace, joy and the Lord's love! Amen!

    We are booking The Spring/Fall Classes.
