TEACH Services, Inc., Jan 28, 2016 - Religion - 372 pages

Precious Memories of Missionaries of Color, Vol. 2 profiles ninety-five black Seventh-day Adventist missionaries from 1892 to 2014 and is a follow up to Carol Hammond's book Precious Memories of Missionaries of Color, which was published in 2008 and featured the profiles of forty-nine families. Author DeWitt S. Williams desired to feature the stories of those not included in the first book, so he compiled a list of all those who had served as missionaries through the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, researched their stories, and wrote about their triumphs, struggles, and everyday experiences in this volume.

DeWitt Stanton Williams served as the associate director of health for the Health/Temperance Department at the General Conference from 1983 until 1990, and then as director of health for the North American Division from 1990 until he retired in 2010 after forty-six years of service to the Adventist Church. While serving at the GC, Williams lectured in more than 100 countries, wrote articles about the importance of good health, and talked to young people about the dangers of drugs. Before his appointment to the Health/Temperance Department, Williams held positions as pastor in the Southwest Region Conference; department secretary for the Congo Union, Africa; president of the Central Africa Union; and assistant and associate director of the General Conference Department of Communications.

In addition to Highly Committed, Williams has written four other books, three of which were co-authored with other Adventist authors. In addition to writing and volunteering on numerous boards, Williams finds time to stay fit. He is an avid exerciser and has run in several marathons.
