“Padrino” is a Spanish word that means godparent. You can become a Padrino by giving monthly. The value of being a Padrino is that you can help more children by giving a little each month rather than a few larger gifts each year. With a smaller monthly constant amount, you have a longer-lasting impact on children.
For example, Only $30 monthly provides Icthus for an entire Icthus group – that’s 15-25 kids!
Lucas is 37 years old. He was an Icthus kid over 20 years ago. Padrinos made it possible for him to have consistent Ministry as a kid. Today, Lucas is an elementary teacher and a Pastor in Monteria, Colombia.
Here are Lucas’ words about his journey in Icthus:
“My journey in Icthus began at the age of 9. In Icthus, I learned to love God and my neighbor as myself. At age 15, I became an Icthus guide, which allowed me to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. I learned about working as a team and being creative.
Thanks to God, Icthus’ continuous training helped to form me as a leader and to understand what it means to shepherd children. Today, as a Pastor, Icthus is part of my church. I thank God for allowing me to be in Icthus.”
