busy summer! While we have only
4 mission teams scheduled, we
also will be hosting 4 Johns

to us from Kentucky, Indiana,
Virginia and Ohio. These groups
will do a wide range of service

our ministry! Without them, we
wouldn’t have the time or
resources to continue our work.

teaches our elementary Sunday school class at

After many years on the waiting list for
reservation housing, Velicia, her husband D.J.,
and their 3 children (Michaelson 7, Keyana 4,

Sunday school news
Teaching a Sunday school class
doesn’t stop on Sunday morning.
In order to fully disciple someone,
you must be in their lives, not just
in a class. Karen teaches the pre-
teen girls Sunday school class at
WMACC. She was able to spend
the day with these beautiful girls
and take them to lunch and the
movies. These young girls are
definitely growing in Christ.
Inside a busy McDonalds, one of
the girls reminded everyone that
we needed to pray for our lunch.
Then to my amazement, another
girl (one who is very shy)
volunteered to say the prayer.
They didn’t care who seen them
or that they were in a public
place, all they cared about was
giving thanks to our God for
blessing them. To us that is God
moving in these young girls’ lives.
Spring boy’s retreat
March 7-9 was the Rising’s boy’s
retreat at Lake Pleasant in
Phoenix. Chad from WMACC, Seth
and John from Apache Youth
Ministries planned the events
ranging from hiking Camelback
Mountain to rock climbing classes
to attending worship at Christ’s
Church of the Valley in Peoria,
AZ. Matt and D.J.(WMACC church
member) facilitated camp by
providing camping equipment and
cooking meals for the hungry teen
WMACC Ladies: Weekend
Karen and Kelle Foland (River of
Hope Ministries) along with 5
Apache ladies attended the Joyce
Meyer Conference in Phoenix in
February. We were blessed by a
friend who owns a home in the
Apache Junction area. He let us
stay there that weekend, free of
charge, while he was out of town.
Most of the Apache ladies had
never attended anything like that
kind of conference. All of them
left with an awe of God’s power
and love for each of them. They
were able to experience other
fellow Christians worship and
were amazed at how many men
attended the conference and how
they worshipped so freely.
Please pray for:
Continued growth of individuals and
as a congregation at WMACC.
Energy, focus, discernment for the
