Dental Hygienist, Blanca Nelby Grisales, demonstrated good dental hygiene techniques at our Kingston AmigosCenter. Nelby responded to a recent sermon preached by Pastor Selle calling on all disciples of Jesus Christ to serve others, each according to their gifts. She and her husband, Diego Grisales, also provided free tooth brushes and other dental supplies to the participants. In her native Colombia, Nelby worked as a Dental Hygienist. She and her husband Diego now own and operate two Metro PCS stores, in Bonita Springs and Estero.
A ministry of Amigos en Cristo Lutheran Church, each Wednesday evening we meet with the families of Kingston Acres for games, Bible study and prayer. For over twelve years the Kingston Amigos Center has served as an outpost of our church to proclaim the love of Christ through both word and deed to the families of Kingston Acres labor camp. The Kingston Amigos Center provides an excellent opportunity for church members to practice their leadership skills while serving others. Later this month, Rosieris (Rosi) Ortegon will begin a series of classes on sewing. Rosi owns and operates a successful tailor shop in Estero. Kingston Acres is located at the end of Taylor Road in Bonita Springs, FL.
