We are so proud to announce that Bryan graduated from elementary school in December. He worked hard this year to bring his grades up. Thanks to his sponsorship, Bryan was able to fully participate in his graduation ceremony. His sponsorship provided Bryan with food provisions as well as beginning the year with his annual dental cleaning and fluoride treatment. Continue to pray for Bryan as he makes his transition to high school. It can be a difficult adjustment for some students. Bryan is excited to be able to help with the new baseball ministry beginning at New Song Mission. While he is too old to play on a team, he has been helping build the field and with signups. Bryan and his family received a water filter and a teaching on water borne illnesses. This will provide clean drinking water for several years.

Bryan is working hard in his first year of high school. Even though the first year of high school can be difficult for many students, Bryan received all passing grades on his first report card. His top grade is in his English class. This is the first year Bryan has ever studied English as students begin this class in high school. We are so proud of how well he is doing in his first year. Bryan’s teacher comments that if his behavior in his classes improved, his grades would go up even more. Bryan’s favorite class is geography as he is enjoying making maps and learning about different areas of the world. Jacqueling, Bryan’s mom, left in May for Costa Rica with several of his aunts. She is hoping to find work there for a few months and then return. This has been hard on Bryan but he continues to have a good attitude. Thanks to his sponsorship, Bryan received funds to print maps off at the local cyber café. He also was given a special textbook and the materials to cover it. Bryan’s school celebrated Mother’s Day and International Kid’s Day. His sponsorship was able to cover the costs of his participation in these events.

December 2015

Bryan received his third report card of the year recently. While he is still passing with his cumulative grades, he failed two classes in the third grading period. He promises that he is working to bring them up. Bryan participated in the Independence Day parade with the school marching band playing the drums. There was a lot of practice for this which required Bryan to miss classes and take away time he could have been doing homework. However, he really enjoyed getting to be a part and did a great job. His best grade on his third report card was in civics (100%). Bryan is looking forward to his second year of high school. This has been a hard time for his family as well. Bryan’s mom went for several months at a time to Costa Rica to look for work. She had to return when she got sick to have surgery on her gallbladder. All the kids miss her when she is gone and it requires them to work for things themselves. Through his sponsorship, Bryan received his second uniform and pair of school shoes for the year. He was also able to go on a few field trips with his class; one to the capital city of Managua and one to a nearby city. He also received funds and supplies to complete several class assignments.

April 2016

Bryan began his second year of high school in February. He received his uniform, shoes, backpack, school supplies and an athletic outfit to participate in his PE class. His favorite class is currently science where they have been learning about various types of technology. Bryan enjoys this area of study. His most difficult class is math. He is working hard, but struggling to pass his math class. This year sponsorship is requiring that high school students complete service hours where they are giving back to the community. For his service hours, Bryan helps to coach one of the tee ball teams through New Song’s sports ministry. Bryan really loves working with this team! He is also happy that his mom is now staying consistently in Nicaragua rather than working in Costa Rica and that his family is together in one home.

Fall 2016

Bryan continues to work hard in third grade. He has a B average in his classes overall for the first semester. His best grades are 100% in PE and 90% in both Civics and Cultural Studies. Math is his most difficult class. Bryan’s class recently began a unit on division, which is a difficult area of study for many students. In Language Arts they have been completing reading stories and completing summary tables. Bryan received his new uniform and shoes for the second semester of classes. Bryan will soon become a big brother as his mom is expecting a new baby. This will be an exciting, yet difficult transition for Bryan since he has been an only child for so long.
