Every year on my birthday my grandmother gave me a card. Taped inside would be a dime for each year of my life (a dime was worth much more then). Imagine my excitement each year when I counted out the dimes!
Would you do something similar to provide Icthus to a child? Your gift of 55 cents, 82 cents, or more for each of the 55 years will provide young people with ministry until 2020 - 6 months.
Your birthday gift will help children have character building meetings and activities through the rest of the year.
28 cents x 55 years = $15 2 kids will have Icthus through 2019
55 cents x 55 years = $30 4 kids will have Icthus through 2019
82 cents x 55 years = $45 6 kids will have Icthus through 2019
During this 55th celebration, would you consider how many kids you can give the birthday gift of Icthus to?
Recently, Rev Oscar Caldaron, shared that families have difficult lives in the rural town of Orocunia, near Choluteca, Honduras. 50% of the community lives in poverty. Many children can’t go to school. Job opportunities are limited. On top of that, it’s called “the city of witches” because many there practice witchcraft. Many people wanting a better life are considering the terrible and dangerous option of migrating.
Pastor Oscar is starting a church to make Orocunia a place of hope. His key strategy is to focus on kids. He says: “We must help to improve the quality of these children’s lives. Icthus could help to strengthen the lives of kids and their parents and give them hope amid their struggles.”
Pastor Oscar needs help in starting Icthus. His church needs Icthus training for the guides. They need Icthus manuals. They need ongoing help to provide a quality ministry for young people.
You can help children in this community and throughout Latin America to have Icthus. To provide this ministry to kids until 2020 costs only $7.50 per child.
A generous Icthus Amiga has pledged to double all gifts up to $2,000 to celebrate the 55th anniversary. Your gift will help twice as many children up to the match. Your gift will make a difference.
Help children in Orocunia, so they can attend positive character building ministry of Icthus!
