Southern Gospel Group, The Williamsons, Invited to Perform in South Africa


Recently The Williamsons of Wetumka, Oklahoma were invited to present the music at a revival service near their home town. They were not aware that the evangelist was the Rev. Livingstone Zitha of Johannesburg, South Africa where he pastors a church of more than 5,000 members. He fell in love with the Southern Gospel music performed by The Williamsons and invited them to come to his church in South Africa along with other churches and to hold an area wide crusade at an athletic event field. The Williamsons have been working the past few years with Mike Russell of The World Mission Team who, along with The Williamsons, works in conjunction with The Gospel Station radio network. Rev. Russell was immediately put in charge of arrangements.

“Plans are beginning to take shape for the Williamson’s third missionary journey with the Gospel Station’s World mission team.” stated Mike Russell leader of the world mission team. Russell continued “Talk’s have been ongoing for a year with Pastor Livingstone of Johannesburg South Africa for a joint effort to conduct a stadium crusade in the city of Johannesburg. What a privilege that God would allow us to work alongside this powerful man of God. God is up to some good things.”

Mike and Jan Russell along with the Williamson’s will travel to South Africa during the month of November 2014 for the outreach. Those interested in participating in this exciting mission trip should contact the Williamson’s, [email protected] , The Gospel Station network”  or the Russell’s,[email protected] .

The Williamsons are excited about this new opportunity. They have been privileged to see nearly 9,000 lost souls make professions of faith in Jesus Christ in the past two years on mission endeavors. They are looking forward to seeing many thousands more come to Christ in South Africa!

The Williamsons are proud to announce the release of a brand new project featuring singer/songwriter Lisa Williamson. Lisa has written some new material for this project, much of it inspired by a very difficult situation through which she helped her parents. Songs like “I Will Be There Too”, “I’ve Made Up My Mind”, and one with a bluegrass feel “A Few Tears of Sorrow” were written to help encourage the Christian experiencing struggles. The title cut, “Counting My Blessings” is the old Irving Berlin song from the movie White Christmas which encourages us to remember all the wonderful things with which God has blessed us. It also includes two Dottie Rambo classics “We Shall Behold Him” and “Don’t Lift the Anchor”. She even included one song she wrote for her and Donnie’s two daughters, Sadie (age 8) and Olivia (age 6) called “Little Old Me”. They do a great job singing a great little song. Lisa says, “My hope is that people enjoy what they hear. It takes a lot of work to put a new recording together. If it encourages just one person, then that work was not in vain.” Counting My Blessings is expected to be released by January 1.
