USCIS Civics Flash Cards

The 100 civics (history and goverment) questions and answers for the naturalization test are included in these flash cards. The civics test is an oral test and the USCIS Officer will ask the applicant up to 10 of the 100 civics questions. An applicant must answer 6 out of 10 questions correctly to pass the civics portion of the naturalization test.

This is an easy way to learn more about history and goverment in the United States of America.

Our Hispanic ministry at Hope Lutheran Church, Bonita Springs has begun a music ministry designed to enhance the worship experience during our Sunday afternoon worship service. Church member and lead guitarist Reynaldo Bernal directs Roberto Velazquez (key board), Carlos Garciá (Drummer), Cesar García (Base guitar), Ebert Enriquez (Percussionist), and Orleisy Lima (lead singer).  Orleisy and Ebert played professionally in Cuba before immigrating to the United States.  In order to share the blessing, Orleisy will sing at Faith Lutheran Church on July 27.  Everyone is welcome to participate in our 1:00 PM Spanish language each Sunday at Hope Lutheran, Bonita Springs.

Our volunteer staff continues to amaze as they take on more responsibility so I can continue my studies with the SMP (Specific Ministry Program).   The program is very challenging but the rewards are priceless as it is for the service to our Lord for the expansion of his Kingdom.  This is a four-year distance education program of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO that prepares for ordination as a pastor in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.  As Paul prays for the Philippians I ask yours also.

Philippians 1:6  “I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.”

We are in the process of upgrading our audio visual equipment thanks to a grant from the LIPMAN Foundation we received to support our English language studies program in Immokalee, Florida.  Lipman, North America’s largest open field tomato grower, has an extensive and growing history of giving back to the community.  Amigos Center is thankful for their support.

This last quarter has been an eventful one.  Our English classes are in full swing Monday through Thursday from 9:30am-11:30am.  We also will soon start training our volunteer staff with new computer literacy classes.  It will help students develop basic computer skills such as how to set up an e-mail address, fill out an online job application, log on to the parent portal at their children’s school, etc.
