Comedy and food brought roughly 300 people to the Winkler Evangelical Mennonite Mission Church last Saturday night. Mennonite comedian, Matt Falk, put on an hour-long show to help the WEMMC youth group raise funds for their upcoming mission trip. The highly successful night brought in approximately $5,500.

The fundraiser was organized by the Youth Pastor at WEMMC, Tim Goertzen, who has previously taken the youth group to Nicaragua. Due to political unrest in the country causing safety concerns, the group will now be travelling to San Francisco to do missions in the city.

Although the youth are no longer going to Nicaragua, they won't let this stop them from making an impact there. Blankets made by members of the church were displayed on the walls for the night, and will be sent to an orphanage along with the proceeds from the fundraiser.

The youth kept busy serving till the end of the evening, while Falk kept the laughter rolling in. For a brief moment, the comedian broke away from his jokes to commend the team for the great work they will be doing.
