For 2013 Gulf Winds partnered with International Cooperating Ministries (ICM) to go on an amazing journey to El Salvador to witness Gods work as done through the hands and hearts of ICM and the miracles that are happening each and every day all over the world. Amazing churches have been built, testimonies given and the word and love of God was seen in everyone. All of this is because of the faith and devotion of this ministry. We hope you take a look at this video to see just a glimpse of the amazing work that has been done.
For 2012 Gulf Winds will be partnering once again with International Cooperating Ministries (ICM) to build an orphanage for over 50 children in Colombia, South America. This year, we had several people from our company visit communities in need. See photos from their trip.

In 2010, Gulf Winds partnered with International Cooperating Ministries (ICM). ICM is dedicated to nurturing believers and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ through building churches the world over! ICM is a non-profit, trans-denominational parachurch ministry guided by God’s Word, a strong statement of faith, and the Lausanne Covenant. 100% of all money raised goes to the building of churches. Gulfwinds was also drawn to ICM by where the churches will be built. Many of our employees and drivers come from or have family in Mexico and Colombia. It is exciting for us to be able to give back to an area that means so much to so many of us.
