Caconde, Brazil

Since 2009, LGUMC has been working to complete a Senior Care Center (an Asilo) in Caconde, Brazil. The new facility will house seniors who are currently crowded into an older and much smaller unit in this small community located in beautiful, hilly, coffee-growing country some four hours north of Sao Palo.  For the last 5 years, LGUMC has supported the project with funds and volunteers.  Volunteer teams work on construction and develop life-changing relationships while living in a comfortable country home.   Our next mission trip is scheduled for February 2015.  The construction done at that time will allow the first seniors to begin moving in to their new homes!  Team Leader, Mike Kent.
