Come celebrate Thanksgiving with the farmworkers of Immokalee on Tuesday, November 24 at 5:00 pm. A local caterer will prepare 20 hot turkeys so we can provide a traditional hot Thanksgiving meal in the parking lot of our Immokalee Amigos Center. Volunteers will bring the side dishes and help serve the community. What a great way to express our thankfulness to God for all of his blessings. Call Gloria for more information (239) 253-5628. (Amigos Center, 106 South 2nd Street, Immokalee, FL 34142).
On Saturday, October 10 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm we plan to distribute a new pair of sneakers to every child who comes to our Immokalee Amigos Center. In partnership with Samaritan’s Feet and with Hope Lutheran Church, Bonita Springs we will once again set up the big tent in our parking lot to share not only a pair of shoes, but also the Gospel hope we have in Jesus.
The free shoe event will also feature a special prayer ministry, food, fun activities for kids and for the weary backs of this farmworker community, free chiropractic services courtesy of Restore Chiropractic of Bonita Springs. Come on out and help. Call Karl for more information (239) 293-1489. Volunteers should arrive at 8:00 am.
On July 31 we celebrated our first Mariachi Evangelism Campaign with over 200 people from all over Southwest Florida in attendance. Thanks to our partnership with Zion Lutheran Church we were able to bring the Mariachi San Pablo music group from the Ysleta Lutheran Mission in El Paso, Texas all the way to Immokalee, Florida. Mariachi, you got to love it! Check out the video link www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RFfWSnWU_I
