How a Drug Mobster Was Transformed
When you meet Bill Saye today you might think “nice guy” or “probably a grandpa.” Few would think this very soft spoken man was once one of the largest drug kingpins in the whole country.
His drug operations along with other mobster activity allowed him to create an empire and vast wealth which was a tremendous change from his humble truck driving career. Bill Saye was the real deal and he was a big deal.
Time, however, as well as the law would finally catch up to Mr. Saye and his life which seemed untouchable was turned completely upside down. In 1980 Bill Saye found himself arrested and charged with first degree murder and sent to death row in the state of Georgia. The story is much greater and much more detailed than this small introduction.
While on death row Bill found that there was at least one who actually cared for and loved him, Bill Saye found Jesus Christ. Now some would say “oh sure, another jailhouse conversion,” but in this case it was also the real deal.
The First Baptist Church of Williams at 7th Street and Grant in Williams—across from Safeway—is holding a Revival featuring the incredible and life changing story of Bill Saye. The Revival begins Sunday night, June 24th at 6 p.m. It will continue Monday to Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Senior Pastor Andy McDaniel and the members of the church are excited about having Bill Saye as a speaker. “We here at First Baptist Church are so excited to have Bill with us and we truly hope to see as many of you as we can during his time here. You will not leave the same as when you come in. This is not merely just a time to come hear preaching, this is about finding hope,” Pastor Andy said.
The First Baptist Church of Williams provides spiritual worship on Sunday at 10 a.m. as well as Bible study on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m and Youth Study on Wednesday at the same time.
“We have a heart and passion for every single person in Williams and our surrounding areas and we want each and every person to know we care about you and want to help. This Revival is a wonderful opportunity to share the love of Christ with our community,” he said. “We still believe in the Bible here at FBC and stand on the promises of God.”
