Local pastors in Immokalee joined with a special out-of-town guest evangelist to meet each evening under a tent at Hyways and Byways Church on Main Street to share the Word of God, preach the gospel and raise funds for the Immokalee Ministerial Alliance fund to provide scholarships for Immokalee High School students from their churches who are seniors planning to attend college.

Thousands of dollars have gone to deserving students over the past several years, many of them still attending college. I.M.A. is currently under the capable leadership of Rev. T.W. Mallory, pastor of First Missionary Baptist Church. Rev. John Bex, pastor of Hyways and Byways Church set up their tent on their property and helped coordinate this exciting event. Each church in Immokalee is encouraged to add to the free-will offerings by donating at least $100.00 to add to the scholarship funds.

While internationally known motivational speaker, Reggie Dabbs-staff evangelist for First Assembly of God Church in Fort Myers, spoke at the concluding service last Friday, other local speakers included Rev. Josue Rincon-pastor of Bethel Assembly, Rev. Endres Mezilus-pastor of Bethlehem Lutheran church, Rev. Evens St. Louis-pastor of Beraca Haitian Baptist church, and Rev. John Bex-pastor of Hyways and Byways church. His church Praise Band also provide powerful music each evening.

Reggie Dabbs who speaks to over one million students a year around the world, has been the invited speaker at the Super Bowl for the past 12 years, addressing both teams each year in a special chapel, also had rousing assemblies at Immokalee High School and Immokalee Middle School last Friday, inspiring students to believe in themselves and also realize the value of each of their lives and the potential that they have as they pursue their dreams. Accompanying Reggie on Friday night were a drama group from his home church, and a fantastic, young singer, Abby Green, who recently cut her first solo CD-“Underwater”. She was accompanied by other youth members from First Baptist Church of LaBelle.

Special thanks also goes to Bennison Center, a local ministry that provides hundreds of thousands of goods for local families, schools and other non-profit organizations through their partnership with World Vision. They provide special gifts handed out each evening.

Anyone in the community who would like to add to the I.M.A. Scholarship Fund may make a tax-deductible donation to One By One Leadership Foundation,1400 No. 15th Street, Immokalee, FL 34142. All such gifts go 100 percent to scholarship for Immokalee High School seniors-please note I.M.A. Scholarship Fund on your check.
