You Can Change Lives In The DR Congo

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

ICC is blessed to have supporters who are willing to act when they see that “His Kids” have a pressing need. And that they want to provide a way for others of our supporters to join them in relieving these needs. Recently we published a story in our newsletters concerning shortfalls in the operating budget for our Patmos Children’s Village in the DR Congo. Because of the budget issues our staff were only able to feed our children two meals a day.

You can make a significant difference in the daily lives of these children and at the same time double your donation! Please read the article to find out how.

This was a not an acceptable situation for one of our supporters. She quickly emailed Doug Congleton, ICC’s executive director, about ways to close the gaps in the Patmos budget. Thanks to this amazing lady’s efforts a revolving matching fund has been created in which you may participate.

Each month, this rotating matching fund will double your donation until a monthly total of one thousand dollars in donations has been acquired. That means that each month your contributions to our Patmos operating budget—regardless of the amount—can become as much as $2000.

This is not an opportunity to be missed. You can make a significant difference for our children at Patmos by becoming a regular contributor to this matching fund. Please contact ICC today and let us know that you want to double the power of your donation to “His Kids” living at our Patmos Children’s Village.

A Day at the Beach

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Here is a message some of us at ICC received from Lilly Kaligithi recently. I thought you ‘d be interested in her report and some of the pictures she sent.


We had a wonderful time together. All our children were home from Spicer College, Bangalore, Rajahmundry, Vizag and Vijayawada. Our children enjoyed the Christmas and New Year special meals. I took them to Perupalem beach on the lst evening just to enjoy the inspiring sights of the sea and sunset. Today I am giving them the last picnic with special meal of the season. Thank you for the money you had sent for Christmas celebrations.

Will you please pass on our grateful thanks to all those who have contributed? School is re-opening tomorrow and we are going to get busy again. Xth and XIIth Graders have Division examinations from the 10th of this month. Please pray for them. The Govt. Board Examinations are fast approaching—Practical examinations are in February and theory in March.

[Here are] the photos of our trip to the Perupalem beach on the lst of Jan, 2011. Children got into the water in the evening. I just want to share this joy with you.

With New Year greetings,

Notice the emphasis of having all the children home for the holiday. Just like your home, ICC homes provide a sense of family and community to our kids—young and old. What a blessing your donations and support continue to be to our ICC children in India and all the projects of ICC.  Thanks for continuing to make this ministry possible.
