VBS was a great success again this year!  Thank you to all who volunteered in so many ways.  It was such a blessing to have so many children learning about how Jesus works through them in their lives.  Can't wait til next summer for the next VBS! (Photos posted soon)

This year's VBS decided to benefit Wings as Eagle's Ministries' "Circle of Love" children's home facility as it's mission project.  Wow! At the end of VBS the children had raised enough to purchase another square foot of space needing to be built in the facility.  Prs. Lori and Gary McAfee were alerted of the "gift" coming their way, along with a multitude of postcards that the children wrote during VBS to be given to the children who come to WAEM for help, programs, food, worship, and more.  What a blessing! Thank you to all who helped make this possible!
