Thanks to the volunteers of Amigos Center and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans chapters in Lee and Collier counties “Change for Change Program” we were able to make a significant improvement in the Bonita Springs home of a single mother and her two kids. Over a two week period, nine volunteers worked over 200 hours to completely refurbish a bedroom and bathroom. The home had been damaged in the flood following Tropical Storm Fay in August of 2008. The volunteers worked under the supervision of contractor Paul Garcia. This was a moving spiritual experience for Paul since he felt certain that, through a series of events, God had called him to help this long-suffering family of three.
VBS in Immokalee. On August 17-21, 40 kids enjoyed a fun week filled with songs, Bible stories, crafts, snacks and games. What a joy to celebrate life together and being a light for Jesus in the world.
