2,000 evangelical leaders and pastors met in Guatemala to set strategy and goals for all 44 countries south of the US. Guatemala after Haiti, is the most difficult country for children in Latin America but from this crucial meeting in Guatemala the decision to emphasize the evangelism of children through local churches by meeting their needs was taken. Children are often the most vulnerable and unprotected but 80% of those that come to Christ are children… there is a God-lesson there.
If you look closely you will see all types of people at the foot of the Cross made by Jesus’ outstretched arms in picture taken at Corcovado in Brazil.

This grandmother in Asuncion, Paraguay, has been a pastor for 18 years and has planted 8 thriving congregations because God led her to this region from her home far away.
She has bought all 8 plots of land over the years, and her father of 85 is the carpenter for the needs of the inside of the church. Her 3 sons are pastors. Here she stands in front of her latest church, which she is in the process of finishing.
A pastor in Uruguay breaks down and cries when he is informed that with the partnership with ICM the dream he has of a church building will now become a reality. The country superintendent hugs him and the engineer who will build the project stands to his right. The engineer had anonymously donated the land.
The ICM team had the joy of visiting “my blue house” orphanage on the outskirts of Medellin … construction was recently finished on the primary portion of the building and by the grace of God, additional land next door was purchased and the orphanage can now grow and expand, offering a safe haven for the dear children of Colombia … the future of the nation! Pictured are thank-you letters from these precious children.
