A Note from Jacquelyn Mendoza
Valley Vineyard's Jubilee Tutoring Center

Dear Valley Vineyard Family,
     I am thrilled to share some great news with you - the Jubilee Center is growing! The Lord has gifted us with FIVE new students, in addition to the 8 who were already part of our ministry!
     Jubilee has remained active during the COVID-19 crisis; we have never shut down. Our wonderful tutors and I have been meeting regularly with students via Zoom, for both homework help/academic support and Bible lessons. We have also been meeting with parents on Zoom.
     But this wonderful news has presented a situation that we need YOUR help with: WE NEED MORE SPONSORS!!! Sponsors are the awesome people - like YOU! - who work "behind the scenes" to make Jubilee possible: they commit to praying daily for a particular child, as well as committing to pay $30 each month to help cover the costs of running the program. We will provide you with quarterly updates of your child's successes and challenges academically, spiritually, emotionally, etc. At present we are seeking six new sponsors. Would you consider blessing a child with your sponsorship? From the bottom of my heart, thank you and may our Good Lord bless you richly!
     If the Lord puts sponsorship on your heart, you can go to our app or online to to donate a recurring gift with Jubilee Tutoring Center as the cause.

Ever Gratefully Yours,
Jacquelyn Mendoza
Director, Jubilee Center
