Children are the future

Interview with Padrions, Franklin and Kathy Glynn

In 1987 Franklin’s wife, Kathy, traveled to Guatemala and learned about Icthus.


Kathy saw the kids living in the city dump searching for food in the garbage.  She also noticed armed guards all over and realized how dangerous it was there.  She was ready to help with Icthus. 


Franklin identified with the poor kids Kathy saw in Guatemala, “I grew up poor.  Even though being poor in the US is not the same as being poor in Latin America, having some butter on my bread was a big deal for me,”  Franklin said.


The difference between Franklin in the US, and a poor kid in Latin America, is the opportunity to build a future.

Today Franklin is a retired elementary teacher.  He says Icthus is a life-changing opportunity for a child growing up in poverty.” Icthus can help a child to build a future.


Children are the future of families, churches, and communities.  Thanks to Icthus amigos, like Franklin and Kathy, and you, children in poor barrios are becoming Christian leaders, and their future looks promising!

"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."
