Paz Financiera 001

 

Starting Friday, April 25 we begin a six-week course on family finances designed to help our families get out of debt and live according to Biblical principles of stewardship.  This is the Spanish language version of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University course.  The course is open to all.  Pastor Selle serves as facilitator at Hope Lutheran Church, Bonita Springs, 7:00 PM every Friday night from April 25 to May 30.  Child care is provided.  Call Pastor Selle (239) 437-6727 if you are interested in finding out more about the course.

You are invited to participate in the installation of two new vicars for our Immokalee ministry on Sunday, May 4 at 5:00 PM (106 S. 2nd Street, Immokalee, FL  34145).  Vicar Saint Luc Charelus will finish his theological studies next year; Vicar Karl Glander is just beginning his 4-year program of study.  Both are enrolled in distance education programs of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO and work under the direction of local mentors and supervisors.  Upon satisfactory completion they will receive a Theological Diploma which makes them eligible for a divine call to the pastoral ministry of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.  Upon graduation, we expect Saint Luc to join our pastoral ministry team at Bethlehem Haitian Church – LCMS.  Karl will head up our English language mission in Immokalee.  Come and join us on this special day.

On August 8, 2013 Amigos Center celebrated the reopening of its newly refurbished immigration office at 25999 Old 41 Road in Bonita Springs on the campus of Hope Lutheran Church.  The President of Amigos en Cristo, Pastor Bob Selle, expressed his appreciation to all those who had contributed to this very important work and thanked them for their tireless efforts to support the Amigos Center’s services to the immigrant community of Southwest Florida.  Pastor Selle complimented the Amigos Center’s two Immigration Specialists, Christina Leddin and Maria Herrera and Administrative Assistant Marisol Dickerson for their excellent work in this ministry.  He pointed out that during the past year the immigration staff had counseled and assisted over 1600 immigrant clients, walking beside each of these individuals as they proceeded on their pathway to U.S. citizenship.   In addition, since August of 2012, the Amigos Center has filed over 390 Applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) for undocumented young students and graduates who were brought to this country at a very early age by their parents or family members. These individuals who receive deferred action status can remain in this country, obtain a drivers license, a Social Security card, legally work and pay in-state tuition should they attend college.

Amigos Center’s Executive Director, Denny Brown, also expressed his appreciation to all those who have, over the past decade, so faithfully supported this important ministry in our community, both financially and with their volunteer time, and urged them all to continue their efforts as the need for compassionate and professional immigration counseling and assistance has grown so substantially in Lee county in the past years.
