Amigos Center

Couples in Bonita Springs and Immokalee enjoyed a great weekend of marriage enrichment activities on April 27 to 29.  Mark Kempff, of the Center for Hispanic Studies at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis led a weekend workshop for more than 17 families.  This activity is part of our ongoing effort to reach out to Hispanic couples with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  More than twenty children also participated in special activities designed for them while their parents participated in the workshops. If the father and the mother are strong in their love and support for each other, their children will flourish. Two couples who are currently receiving pre-marriage instruction from Pastor Selle also attended the weekend events.

In the month of May we plan on launching a third cycle of weekend Marriage Enrichment Retreats involving a group of ten families.

We are grateful for the many friends who came to support the ministry at our annual fundraising luncheon at the Hilton in Naples. It was a great event with powerful stories, vision for the future, and over 200 friends in attendance. Thank you to all who attended and thank you to the many volunteers who dedicated themselves to making this event a success!

Alonzo Martin, Consul for Mexican Communities led a Mobile Consulate at the Bonita Springs Amigos Center, Saturday, March 10. The Consulate served over 340 Mexican nationals living in South West Florida. Qualifying Mexicans were issued passports and Consular ID cards.

Amigos Center provided 14 volunteers to help aid this effort. In order for Mexicans to receive legal residency or U.S. citizenship, they must have a valid passport.

This outreach helps us develop a relationship of trust and friendship with Mexicans living in our community.
