INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE UPDATE
Thanks to the generosity of many Icthus Amigos, leaders in Latin America are excited and preparing to go to Medellin, Colombia for the International Conference, June 30th.
We are praying that at least 32 leaders will be able to participate. But, it’s not been easy for the leaders from three countries.
Nicaragua has been rocked by social unrest over many weeks. This is making it hard for 2 leaders there to get their passports and tickets. We’re still working on that.<< New text box >>
This conference is important. It will provide Icthus leaders with training and motivation. We’ll work on the development of a brand new Icthus Youth program. We’ll review our progress in all the countries and strategize on how to reach more children and youth.
Children, families, and churches in Nicaragua, Venezuela and other countries have been suffering from national turmoil and poverty. They need Icthus in a big way. We’ll develop strategies to help more kids in places like those at the Conference.
PRAY that all the leaders from the different countries can get to the Conference.
PRAY for wisdom and energy for those of us who are organizing this Conference that it will result in ministry for many more of children and youth.

ICTHUS CAMPS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Icthus camps mean a lot to kids. They learn so many things and have adventures beyond their imagination. From Costa Rica, here’s what Arieth said. He is 10 years old and is in the 4th grade. One day he hopes to be a musician. He comes from a poor family and he needed a campership to be able to attend the Icthus camp.
“Hi, I’m Arieth, from the Invincible Legion. My favorite experience in Icthus is to have new friends and the camp. I liked that a lot. At camp we had a workshop on tracking and I was able to identify some animals and plants. I also learned how to make a campfire and what cautions we need to take for that.
I would like to thank the people who helped me go to camp (those who gave camperships). I ask them to keep helping other kids, as they did me.”
