Meet Amy Jacinto

Icthus International Office Assistant.


      Amy joined the International office last year. God blessed us with her passion to bless others and her excellence at work. I would love for you to read in her words about the transformation you make possible when you help children in need through Icthus.


"Icthus to me" - By Amy Jacinto

      I am 31 years old and live in Wisconsin with my husband Jorge and our 2 sons Darren (8) and Isaac (2). I am coming up on my 1-year anniversary of working for Icthus and I feel so blessed to have been able to travel to Honduras in 2022 and see firsthand how Amigos like you are changing lives!


      Many Icthus kids live in poor and dangerous communities, but from the moment they enter their Icthus meeting, they can stop worrying and be a kid. Part of my job is to share testimonies from Icthus kids in Latin America. Most of these children came to Icthus because they were invited by another Icthus kid.

Because the children participate in fun, worry-free activities, they can’t help but want to share the fun! Icthus kids are inviting their brothers, sisters, cousins, and neighbors to their Icthus groups. This is what we mean when we say you are transforming communities by changing one life at a time.


      God gave me the opportunity to see with my own eyes how you are changing the lives of children in Latin America. I personally want to say  " Thank You."


Would you please help more children in 2023 ?


      I hope that after reading this newsletter you realize the transformation you make possible in the lives of Icthus children and their families. Thank you so much for your generosity and prayers in 2022.


     There are thousands of kids  that still yearn for God's love and guidance. You can help through the Icthus ministry.  You can change their lives too!


God Bless You,


Luis Yon - Icthus International Director.

What Icthus Amigos say:


"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
