Oh no. This is horrible. Why would someone want to be so cruel and take money from good people, and scam a GOOD Christian man. I know brother Roger Williams. Thank goodness his daughter realized it wasn't him.

I am just thankful that no one sent them any money. And thanks to the ones who called us first and offered their assistance. That meant so much. Daddy (Roger Williams) has really touched alot of lives and in times like these it shows.

He is actually rebuilding churches that were destroyed by the storms back in Nov 2009 in the Philippines.

We are really looking forward to him coming home. He left the day after Mothers Day. We really miss him!!

Thanks again.

I am blessed to have brother Roger as a missionary at Antioch Baptist Church. I hope and pray he remains safe on all of his trips. I recently received an email on my Yahoo account asking for my log in credentials. The email looked like a legitimate email from yahoo; however, it was not. I notified Yahoo immediately regarding the phishing scheme; however, the never sent an email to their end users that there was an email being sent that appeared to be from them. Just be careful and never give your login credentials for anything on any email. Since yahoo didnt notify their users of the scheme, I will be changing my email account to another provider.
