The 55th Anniversary of Icthus was an exciting time here in the USA and Latin America. There were large and small celebrations and kids made lots of cakes. We had a Virtual Fiesta broadcast from Honduras and Colombia (albeit technical challenges). You can see the videos of groups from all over Latin America: http://bit.ly/2ZbF7th Take a look - It’s fun!
In honor of the 55th birthday we had a drawing to give away Icthus hats to 6 Icthus Amigos who gave a birthday gift during July. Earlier this month Icthus kids in Honduras drew numbers that we assigned to Icthus Amigos here in the USA.
A long-term and enthusiastic Icthus Amigo, Glen Doughty, went to be with the Lord June 3rd at 96. He is survived by his wife Patricia, and daughters Celeste and Denyse and their families.
I’ve known Glen and Patricia Doughty since I was kid. They were chaperons of my high school and college groups at San Diego 1st Presbyterian. Also, Glen was my Dad’s dentist. Glen and Patricia have prayed for and encouraged Icthus from its very beginning. Many, including me, will miss him greatly.
Icthus Amigos like you helped exceed a matching gift of $2,000! When the Icthus Amiga who pledged this match heard about the response she decided to increase her gift to match more! Gifts are still coming in – all totaled we now have over $5,940! This will 715 help kids have Icthus for the rest of the year. Praise the Lord!
PS: There’s still time to help more kids have Icthus with a 55th birthday gift.
What Icthus Amigos say:
"Icthus makes a difference in the lives of kids."
"When children's behavior and outlook on life changes for good, parents are drawn to find out the reason. Countless families have committed their lives to Christ through Icthus in many different countries. Now it is starting in Africa and soon we may see it spread all over the world.
Truly a vision of God."
