Icthus International


Don Weisbrod





The Icthus ministry grew from a 1964 short-term mission trip to Guatemala by a First Pres Eagle Scout, Don Weisbrod.  Icthus, from the Greek for “fish,” was an early secret Christian symbol, an acronym for “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior.” Under His guidance and Don’s continuous oversight, this club-like Christian organization thrives in 15 Latin American countries, training thousands of 4-to-17-year-old children, through age-appropriate programs, in Christian service, leadership and life skills.  A significant number of its 100,000 alums have leadership positions in their churches and communities, and families have accepted Christ under influence of their Icthus-trained kids. 


Prayer Requests: 


For strong leaders in each church in Bogota, Colombia, to enable them to bring their communities to Christ, and to work and encourage the churches to minister to their kids.


For all guides and pastors who bear the burden of the ministries in their congregations.


For new Icthus groups and contacts so they can open doors to the kids and teens in their neighborhoods. 

For financial support to provide training manuals, campership opportunities, and development of new Icthus groups.
