A Season and a Reason to Give Thanks

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

“ICC children show their gratitude for Your support by taking advantage of the opportunities that are possible because YOU give.”

This Thanksgiving season, ICC children around the world have much for which to be grateful.

Through the generosity of donors like you, they have nourishing food. They have a safe, comfortable home in which to live. They have the love and nurturing care they need. And they are able to go to school. This stands in stark contrast to their lives before arriving at an ICC children’s village.

Marieny was a little girl who needed help. Thanks to the support of donors like you, she has grown into a talented young woman who desires to serve others.

Marieny Sosa is one example. After graduating from Linda Vista University in Mexico she expressed in a letter her gratitude for the support she received.

“It is a pleasure to know that people of great heart decided to help those in need, of which I am one.”

She went on to say what she planned to do with the opportunities given her. “I have good news for you. I have decided to help in God’s work. I will be working at the University and studying to become a Medical Missionary so I can do that in years to come.”

Many of the kids express their desire to be able to help others as they were helped in their darkest hour. They may have been abused. They may have lost family members.

That’s when you step in, rescue them and give them an opportunity for a new life. The older the children get, the more they realize what a blessing they have received because of the care you help to provide through your support.

This Thanksgiving season, as you recount your blessings, we hope that you consider your support of orphan children as something for which you are grateful. May God Bless you with a Happy Thanksgiving!
