Looking Behind the Scenes

Behind any successful ministry there’s a huge effort that makes it possible.  The key to Icthus’ success are the dedicated and skilled guides who work with the kids on a weekly basis.


But, who works behind-the-scenes to train and develop the guides?  Icthus trainers do! 

Mateo Gonzalez training a group of new Icthus guides in El Salvador

Mateo Gonzales is one of those trainers (one of our best).  Mateo loves God and loves kids and has a gift for training.  In addition to being a pastor, he has a degree in educational psychology that lends professional standards to his training.  He has been a key person in the growth of Icthus in Nicaragua and is now beginning in El Salvador. 


Now we want Mateo to go to Colombia for two weeks.  The goals are to:

  1. Equip the Colombian regional trainers to start 30 or more Icthus groups in the Sucre and Cordoba regions within the next 6 months - this will extend Icthus to some 600 more kids;
  2. Put on a 3 day training conference for Icthus guides to increase their effectiveness in extending Icthus to more children;
  3. Lay the groundwork in Arenal for a new IcthusNext region, our 3rd in Colombia.

It will cost about $1,500 for this 2 week trip.  We are confident that the trip will grow IcthusNext so that hundreds of kids will have Icthus and be exposed to the alternative lifestyle of following Jesus.


We need your help to send Mateo on Oct 7th.  His travel, lodging, meals and training materials for two weeks will cost an average of $107 per day.


Would you be a sponsor for several days, one day, or a portion of a day?  We are confident that this will result in what Jesus called “fruit that will last.”  (John 15:16)


May God bless you!
