20th Anniversary Challenge Grant

By Rev. Robert Selle

We are thrilled to report that we surpassed our 20th Anniversary Challenge Grant goal of $20,000.  Judy Small, widow of longtime volunteer and board member Bob Small, offered to match any qualified gift during November and December dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000.  We received 47 qualified gifts, including 30 new donors totaling $25,192.  Thanks to the generosity of all participants her challenge grant resulted in a total gain of $45,192.  These special gifts helped us end the 2016 year with a surplus of $10,200.  This helps us continue to provide the spiritual, legal and social services that help immigrants to Southwest Florida to a successful life here in the United States and the Kingdom of God.

20th Anniversary Challenge Grant

By Pastor Bob Selle

Diego’s kind words are very gratifying. Over the 13 years since he arrived in the United States with nothing, he and his family have established three Metro PCS stores and have proven themselves as faithful servants of Jesus Christ and members of our Amigos en Cristo church.

Thank you for helping make our ministry possible. Last month I announced the launching of our 20th Anniversary Challenge Grant; any donation given in November and December of this year that exceeds the amount given in 2015 will be matched up to a maximum of $20,000.  I am pleased to report that through December 15 we have received $15,451 in qualified donations.  We still have a couple of weeks to go to meet our $20,000 goal.

Thank you for your kind support of Amigos en Cristo. You can double your gift to Amigos Center by making a special gift before December 31:

  • Send a check, just write the word “Challenge” in the memo line, make payable to AMIGOS CENTER and mail it to our administrative office: 7401 Winkler Road, Fort Myers, FL 33919, or use the enclosed remittance envelope; or

Click the DONATE NOW button on our website www.amigoscenter.org and make your contribution by credit card or by Pay Pal.  Write the word “Challenge” in the message

An Amigos Testimony

By Diego Grisales

diego-grisales

I’m Diego Grisales, from Colombia. I’m married and have 2 children.  I want to give this testimony to all those people who support Amigos en Cristo.

When I came to the United States 13 years ago, I met Pastor Bob Selle in his service at the Bonita Springs church. He was like an angel for me and my family.  At that time I didn’t speak any English, I didn’t have a good job, and my legal status was confused.  I remember very well that Pastor Bob Selle invited me and my family to visit his Amigos Center office in Bonita Springs. When we went there we started receiving a lot of support; food, clothes, spiritual support, immigration support, etc.  My family and I became citizens of the United States thanks to Amigos Center because they helped us with all the immigration procedures.

I’m very grateful to Amigos Center. This organization really helps, not only people in need, but also they support all the Hispanic and Haitian communities.  I always recommend people to visit them to get information and support in many areas.
