A dear Icthus friend, Jack Stothers, went to be with the Lord on June 21st at the age of 83.
Jack was actively involved in Icthus. He came to the Icthus office monthly with his wife Joyce to prepare the newsletters for mailing. He perfected a method for hand cutting the response coupons and sent out thousands of them with newsletters through the years. Jack and Joyce have also been generous in supporting Icthus projects for years. A highlight was when Jack and Joyce went to Costa Rica with Frank Tranzow, and Carol Kocherhans to help Icthus. He made many friends there and also with Icthus leaders from other countries who came to visit the USA.
Joyce, wrote, “Jack had been so weak from last Christmas until he went to his Father in heaven on his Father's Day! The Lord just plans our days. In March he had kidney failure and came home here on hospice and 24 hr. care. I am praising God for choosing him for me when I was 14 yrs old!”
He will be missed by many of our international family. A multitude of children received the Icthus ministry because of him. Please pray for Joyce and their family.
A $5,000 matching gift was set up to honor Jack. Thanks to many Icthus Friends we exceeded the match by $2,000. However, gifts may still be given and are much needed to help start Icthus groups in El Salvador. You can see the details by clicking here.
