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 …

February/March Update

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 …

January Update

January started with a bang this year (literally) as with all major holidays, not so major holidays, and totally made up holidays here in Central America.  Firecrackers zipped, banged, whistled, and exploded all over the country as people rang in the New Year. While the world around us was partying the night away, the Williams …

Our 2011 Update

Where does the time go?  Another year has come and gone and plans are already in the making for 2012. 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. …

Looking back and moving forward

This is it…. the end of the update. September 2010- 1.  The first day of September Scott left the kids and I for 7 weeks.  He first travelled to New York City for a 4/14 conference and then headed to Canada for a 6 week whirlwind trip of itineration.  He spoke in many churches and …

Looking back… con’t

Continuing on…. May 2010 1.  Scott started the month off by preaching at our church (Iglesia Castillo del Rey de las Asamblias de Dios or ICRAD for short)  He preached in Spanish and there was a great response to his sermon.  He is growing more and more in both his preaching and in his Spanish. …

Looking back

Over the next few days I am going to blog about the year that has just passed.  Most often with my blog I focus on the crazy antics of my family and our everyday lives at home, but I want to take a few posts to highlight 2010 and the things that we were privileged …
