You won’t believe the power of 1

Every year King’s Castle, on a global scale, meet in different countries to help, encourage, and support our work in that country.  As president of King’s Castle International, I have had the privilege to attend and participate in these trips in a unique way. This last January 2015, we went to San Pedro Sula, Honduras and worked with our …

May Update

  April showers bring May flowers, or so the saying goes in North America. Here,  May brings the beginning of rainy season, flash storms in the evenings, hot humid temperatures, mosquitos, new viruses, washed out roads, freshly planted fields and  different shades of green replace the brown dry terrain. It really is a beautiful time …

April Update

Can anyone tell me where April 2012 went?  It seems to have slipped away rather quickly.  Never to be seen again. For us, April started with a week of holidays.  Being Semana Santa, there was no school, and the end of the week brought about the closure of almost all the businesses and stores here …

When Scott and I first came to El Salvador, the Lord  laid on my heart the need for a fresh idea in the area of Women’s Ministries.  I shared my heart with Sandra Gill in Canada and she told me that she would come and help when the time was right.  Well, the time was …

As a family we hosted 14 teams from Canada, and each one was a blessing in their own, different way.  Together we laughed, cried, prayed, sweated, packed food bags, danced, played, ate, painted, hauled block, …

There is a reason we do what we do.

There are days when working in missions seems overwhelming. There are days when working in missions is more frustrating than fulfulling. There are days when I don’t want to put on a Castle shirt, or smile at people, or even speak Spanish. But in the midst of those days, the Lord gives us a day …

Mommy went away.

In January I had the opportunity to go to Honduras for a week. It was an awesome week and I will blog about that another day. Today I want to focus on the hoops a mother has to jump through in order to leave the house for a week. I had to: 1.  slowly start …

It’s been way too long.

I realized today that I have not blogged in 1 month and 2 days. That is waaaaaaaaaay too long. Lazy. Un responsible. Rude. and not to mention lazy. So let’s start again with a clean slate. My name is Melissa Williams and I am a lazy, un responsible, rude, and not to mention lazy blogger. …
