Pat Rickon - An Icthus Friend goes to be with the Lord by Don Weisbrod

It was just three weeks ago that I visited with Pat Rickon at the 50th celebration at the San Diego First Presbyterian Church (see below).   She was so full of enthusiasm for Icthus, just as she has been for more than 30 years.  25 years ago she went with us to Guatemala to celebrate the 25th anniversary,  There she became friends with Icthus leaders such as Deysi Cuevas of Chile and hosted her and others in her home.    


Pat was also very excited about the Icthus group that was started in Southern Sudan.   She urged me to continue helping churches in Africa as well as in Latin America and the USA.  I will miss that enthusiasm.. I call it "Icthusiasm".


Pat went to be with the Lord on September 31st as a result of a fall.  Services will be held on Saturday, October 11th at 2:30 pm at San Diego First Presbyterian Church on 4th and Date streets.   In addition, from 6 to 9 pm, this Friday, October 10th there will be an informal memorial of sharing memories at the church.  


Pat's family suggests giving memorial donations to Icthus International or the South Sudan Project-Alliance for African Assistance, two ministries Pat loved.
