Doorknobs Bring Happiness
It’s not the thing one would expect. That such a simple household item as a doorknob would make someone happy. Yet that is just the reaction a mission group volunteering at the ICC children’s village in El Salvador received.

Powerline Cables Stolen At Las Palmas
That’s right. The high-voltage powerlines feeding the Las Palmas campus in the Dominican Republic have been cut and stolen. That means that someone climbed the power pole, cut the cables and then made off with their spoils, presumably to sell the copper wire contained in the cables for scrap.

We are still puzzling as to how the thieves managed to do this without electrocuting themselves. This leaves the church and four children’s homes without power. That means no power for the fridge or lights and other appliances.

We deeply appreciate the organization Versacare helping Las Palmas by aiding us in quickly resolving this most perplexing event.

The Story Of Julio & Dave
The influence of the house parents on the children who are living at ICC projects cannot be measured by physical things as if you’re keeping a record of a child’s height as they grow.

You can see the culmination of the parents influence in the actions of the children. The story of Julio and Dave is a shining example of the result when parents use love as the mold to form the character of their children.

What’s In This Month’s Qué Pasa?
In the April 2014 Qué Pasa Alcyon Fleck has a personal message about her long-time friend, and ardent ICC supporter, Alice Schultz, who sadly passed away recently. Following is an excerpt:

“Yes, I see her as a hero, one who we can all look up to and admire—one who will certainly enjoy so much the wonderful reunion we all look forward to when we all meet together in the Kingdom of Heaven and present these rescued and restored lives to our Savior, Jesus Christ.”

You can Alcyon’s requiem and much more in the April 2014 Qué Pasa!

ICC Logo None of this work would be possible without those who have committed their efforts to saving and changing the lives of “His Kids.” The children of ICC want to thank you from the bottom of their hearts for making a difference in their lives.

Occasionally when we call for funds for a specific need we receive more in donations than we requested. In those instances when we have received more money than we solicited, those funds will be placed in “Alcyon’s Angel Fund.”
