Williams celebrate 23rd wedding anniversary

Portia and Mark Williams

On Sunday, April 25, 1993, Elder Mark and Evangelist Portia Williams were united in marriage by their pastor at the time, the late Elect Lady Sandra Kay Lattimore. Mark is employed as machine operator at Suncoke in Haverhill, and Portia works as a reporter/content producer, is a columnist, author, and inspirational speaker. Their three gifts from God are their chilldren, Jori Williams, who recently graduated from Marshall University (MU) Magna Cum Laude, and is currently attending graduate school at MU. Pajah Williams is their youngest daughter, and will graduate from Tiffin University in December 2016. Their son Micah Williams is the youngest of their three children, and is a freshman at MU, where he made the Dean’s List on his first semester.

Both Mark and Portia immensely enjoy serving at their home church, Pleasant Green Baptist Church where Rev. Clarence Parker is pastor. The Williams couple wants to encourage all couples to put God at the center of their marriage, and to patiently endure and stay together even through challenging times.
