The magnitude and the diversity of disappointments and challenges Rev. Williams has endured in Christendom would dishearten many. Where many have given up, he prevailed. Broken promises and dashed realities become a norm to him. Decisions made by others caused him great degrees of discomfort and disappointments, but he held up. He stayed strong; he moved on and encourages others to do the same. The after-effects of experiencing so many monumental changes in his live could have broken him, instead it made him stronger.
