780.55

Year-end balance

876.46

The budget for next year primarily consists of $770 a month for 12 months totaling $9,240. We have just enough in the account to cover that amount! Thanks!

Having achieved food security for the seniors for 2009, our secondary commitment to rebuild the toilet and shower facilities at Good Samaritan Home is next! These facilities are abysmal, degrading and inhumane as you can see here.

It is imperative that we rebuild these facilities, roof the area, then create an outside covered walkway from the bedrooms to the area. The beauty of the plan is that the kitchen is right next to the toilet and shower area so roofing them will also roof the kitchen! We estimate the cost to be approximately $25,000.

Our first fund raiser for this project will be Shrove Tuesday, Feb 24th, the day before Ash Wednesday, otherwise known as Mardi Gras. Lord of the Mountains (LOTM) is celebrating with a wonderful community meal prior to the somberness of Lent. A free will offering will be collected at that time. The seniors of Jeremie will also be the recipients of an offering at LOTM on Sunday, Feb.22nd. Donations will be matched by Thrivent, a Lutheran benevolence organization.

Between now and Feb. 24th we implore all of you to count the number of times you use the toilet during the day in your home … Then … give $1 for every flush in one month to the seniors in Haiti! We will have what we need in no time!!!!

Your past, present, and future generosity is acknowledged and appreciated.

Peace, Deborah
