           JULY IS THE 54TH ICTHUS                                     BIRTHDAY 

Dear Icthus Friend,


You helped many kids have Icthus in the past.   I think of you as an important part of the history of Icthus - you helped reach this 54th year.  As a result, this is your birthday celebration too.  Thank you for all you’ve done to help kids.


Will you join me in celebrating this special milestone by helping a few more kids?


After all these years I continue to be amazed at how the Lord works through Icthus to make such a big impact in the lives of kids.  Would you once again help a few more?   


When I was a kid my grandmother, Effie, did something special each birthday.  She taped a dime inside a birthday card for each year of my life.  Imagine my excitement when I received 9 dimes on my ninth birthday.  (In those days a dime was worth a lot more!)


Would you do something similar for Icthus kids this birthday?   Would you give a gift of 50¢,  75¢,  $1 or whatever you can for each year of the 54 years?   Your gift will help provide Icthus to children for 6 months – through the end of December.


  • 50¢  x  54  =  $27       3 ½ kids will have weekly meetings for 6 months
  • 75¢  x  54  =  $40        5 Kids will have character-building activities
  •   $1  x  54  =  $54         7 kids will have people to guide them


As we start this 54th year, please consider how much you can give so kids can have ministry.


#1. YOUR BIRTHDAY GIFT WILL help kids put their faith in God. 


Sofia, age 12, from Tegucigalpa, Honduras told us,

In Icthus, I gave my life to God and it has been the best thing that has happened. Thanks to the activities in Icthus I’m developing my talents and personality.”


How many kids like Sofia are waiting for someone to help them?

#2.  YOUR BIRTHDAY GIFT WILL have a life-long influence. 

Paola Salazar of San Carlos, Chile, 20 years ago she was an Icthus kid.

 “I will never forget my days in Icthus. It was one of my most important influences.  It formed a good foundation for my life.”  She’s very happy that her son is now in Icthus!


How many adults would be better people if they’d had Icthus as children?


#3.  YOUR BIRTHDAY GIFT WILL impact the kids’ families

Lucia Pajaro, of Monteria, Colombia told us,

Icthus has had a positive impact in my family, it has helped us to have the most important thing—to have God in first place in our lives.”


How many more families would be helped if their children were in Icthus?


Because you’ve helped kids have Icthus in the past, I’m confident that you want the best for all kids and you want them to grow up with strong Christian values in their countries.  Providing guidance to kids is so important – it improves their whole lives. 


Dear Icthus Friend,  I hope you can join me in helping more kids have Icthus.
