Corie ten Boom impersonator to perform Aug. 27 at WCC

Corie ten Boom impersonator Vickie Gaynier will perform 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27 at the Warren Cultural Center.

Ten Boom and her family suffered during World War II when they sought to protect the Jewish people from the hatred of Adolph Hitler. Four members of her family gave their lives to hide the Jewish people in their homes. Corrie was released from Ravensbruck concentration camp and then for the next 33 years traveled to over 65 countries sharing what the Lord had taught her during those turbulent times. Her message was one of God’s love and forgiveness to all that would listen. She learned that there is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still. Her message is as true toay as it was during World War II.

Call 641-343-7337 to reserve your seat, as seats are limited to 200 people. A free-will donation offering will be tkane at the door to help cover expenses.

Greenfield Gospel Chapel is helping bring Gaynier to Greenfield.
