Weleetka, OK (January 28, 2013)- Multi-award nominated Gospel group, the Williamsons, has just returned from a time of ministry in the area of Granada, Nicaragua. They traveled as part of the World Mission Team who specializes in missionary evangelism. This is the second international missions endeavor for The Williamsons with The World Mission Team.
Donnie Williamson, manager and Baritone singer for the group said, "The need is so great in areas like Granada and similar places around the world. The laborers seem to be few, but the rewards are so great. The joy of witnessing the message of the Gospel to this poor country was overwhelming, and watching the Doctors minister to their physical needs was such a blessing that your heart just melted within you."
The team would gather each morning at a school and would minister with other groups of missionaries at an event called Med Fest which was coordinated by Way of the Cross Ministries based in Harlengen, Texas. Thousands came for free medical care and the Gospel was shared with each and every one. The Williamsons would then leave on an old school bus and visit three different villages each day and share the Gospel in song and testimony.
Donnie continued to state, "The area was very poor and some of the villages did not even have electricity."
They would at times gather under a tree and sing with a guitar. Each time they stopped hundreds would gather to hear what they had to share and thousands responded to the Gospel message. Following each service the group would give food and literature to the adults and tracts and candy to each child.
By the end of the trip some 2500 had made professions of faith after hearing the precious Gospel of Jesus Christ.
