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.
