CAMPERSHIP NEEDED

       The exciting Colombia national camp is June 20th.  It will help kids grow.  One boy, Donaldo, is wishing he could go.   

 

Each Icthus country organizes camps at different times of the year.  The next is in just a few days in Medellin, Colombia.

Donaldo, a typical boy of 14 in Colombia, needs help.

 

“I have a difficult family situation and I can’t afford paying for camp.

My mom left us 3 months ago and my dad is unemployed. I decided to work to collect money for camp, but my savings had to support my family.”

 
Donaldo is just one of many poor kids who really needs a life-changing Icthus camp.   They cannot go unless someone provides a campership.

 

Would you give a $25 campership for a poor kid like Donaldo?   For the price of a large pizza with tip & tax you could make a big impact in a child’s life. 

 

June 20th is coming soon and there will be camps in other countries too.

“For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing..” Isaiah 55:11

Can you recall those magical summer days at a camp full of fun, friendships and adventure?

 

             Children, growing up in Latin America, are far less likely to have a camp experience.  The vast majority of children come from families of low or poverty level income.  So, going to a camp is a very unique  experience for them.  It makes a big impact in their lives.

 

  Over the years, Icthus Amigos like You, have helped children to experience camping for the first time in their lives.  In 2018, more than 500 children attended camps in different countries.   In this newsletter we share some of their comments and words of thanks.  

Because of YOU

José, 7 years old, from Choluteca, Honduras says:

 

“Thanks to the partial campership I was given by Icthus friends. My brother and I were able to go to camp even though my parents were not able to pay the whole amount.”

 

Thank you very much for the campership!”

 

Jacsel, from Comayagua, Honduras says:

 

“I was very excited when I received a campership. I even cried! I’d never been in a camp before. I enjoyed all the activities, the games, the campfire, the teachings and the new friends I made.

 

Thank you Icthus Amigos for your support! Because of you I was able to attend my first camp!”

 

Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,
    and He will repay him for his deed. Proverbs 19:17

At camp I learned...

“...that I should love my neighbor and support others.”

Genesis, 12, Honduras

 

“...to respect my elders.” 

Xicela, 12, Honduras

 

“...about unity and that fighting doesn’t solve anything.”

 Nicole, 16, Honduras

 

 

 

“...to overcome my fear and learned to be brave as some of the people in the Bible like Moses and Esther.”

Ariannis, 14,  Colom

"Icthus makes a difference in the lives of kids."   

                                - Marion

 

"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."   

                                - Baukien
