Woman from church where Pastor Ron Williams got start says he had winsome personality

By late morning Tuesday, the news stations and most of the supporters had gone from the parking lot of Tabernacle of Prayer & Deliverance.

The 12 jars of candles that were put out Monday were still in a semi-circle on the ground.

Four members of the church, including the pastor, Ron Williams, were killed Sunday night in south Georgia as they were en route to a revival in Florida.

A rear tire blew on the van and all 19 passengers were ejected.

With only about 30 members in the church, most were on the trip.

Cathy Brown was the sole visitor at the church around 11:15 a.m. Tuesday. She’s the secretary at the Kentucky church where Williams got his start in ministry.

She last saw him Saturday night in Columbus, as she and other members of All Nations of Prayer in Hopkinsville were in revival with Williams and his members.

“We were real good friends,” said Brown. “He told us he wouldn’t see us (Sunday) because he was going to another revival.”

Brown said her friend had a winsome personality.

“He always kept you laughing. We are always talking about him playing the organ.”
