This February 14th we're thinking of Valentina.
Many of you have met the Guatemalan social worker who makes sure children in Lemoa get the nutrition they desperately need. Valentina has dedicated herself to the Lemoa Nutrition Center since 2016.  Recently she has become Sister Helen's main companion.  She has no home of her own and limited income.
St. Luke's UMC in Highlands Ranch, Colorado is sponsoring our first Virtual Work Trip with the goal of building a home for Valentina.  Our local crew is ready to begin work.  With your help we can finish the home by summer.  This will give Valentina somewhere to go if Sister Helen has to leave for any reason.

Student year-end status

The Guatemalan school year ran late in 2020 due to the pandemic. We're just now getting final grades.  We will be sending pledge status reports later this month.

If you donate long-term appreciated assets like bonds, stocks or real estate to charity, you generally don’t have to pay capital gains, and you can take an income tax deduction for the full fair-market value. 

We have been accepting stock donations for years now, and the process is quick and easy.  Please contact our planned giving coordinator for more information.
