Bio

Genesis lives with her mother and grandparents in a cement block house. Her dad left at the beginning of this year and her mom works on and off cooking in the market. When her mom is working, she is able to bring home food for the family. Genesis’ house is separated into different rooms, but she does not have a bed and she sleeps on a mat on the floor. Genesis is in preschool and will start primary school (elementary school) next year. When she is at school, she likes to do her homework and she would love to become a doctor. Her aunt and cousins lives down the street from her and she loves to spend time playing with her cousins. She has a sweet laugh and finds joy in whatever she is doing.

April 28, 2015

Genesis began the second grade in February. Her sponsorship provided her with her uniform, school shoes, backpack, and the supplies she needed to start the year. She is excited to begin this year sponsored. Genesis spends every afternoon at her aunt’s house until her mom comes home from working in the market. Her cousin is in the same class so they work on their homework together. Genesis’ aunt and older cousin help to tutor her and make sure she is practicing reading and writing before she can watch television or play. Her favorite class is math in which they are learning to count by 100s and tell time. Through her sponsorship, Genesis was able to receive her annual dental cleaning and fluoride treatment as well as some extra needed dental work. She also received a book to help her in her language arts class. Thank you for your sponsorship of Genesis!

November 2015

Genesis is doing well in the second grade. She loves school and her teacher comments that she is well behaved and pays attention. Genesis’ top grades are in civics and culture. Genesis continues to spend a lot of time with her aunt and cousins who help her with her schoolwork. In math, she is beginning to learn about multiplication and memorize her tables of two and three. Through her sponsorship, she received her second uniform and pair of school shoes of the year. Genesis was able to participate in her school’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and International Kid’s Day events.

April 2016

Genesis enjoyed the opportunity to meet you during your time in Nicaragua in January. It was such a blessing to her to spend time with her sponsor! Genesis began third grade in February. She received her uniform, shoes, backpack, school supplies and an athletic outfit to participate in her PE class. Genesis continues to enjoy school especially her math class. Genesis says that math is her favorite because it is interesting to figure out how to solve problems. Thanks to her sponsorship, Genesis received medical care and medicine through the New Song clinic. There have been some changes in her family this year. Her grandfather recently passed away. Genesis lives with her mom and grandparents and she was very sad about his passing. Also her mom has changed jobs. She is now running a small store from their home rather than working at the market. Genesis joined a baseball team, the Pirates, through New Song’s sports ministry. Genesis is the only girl on her baseball team! She loves to play with the other boys from her community and does a great job.

Fall 2016

Genesis continues to work hard in 3rd grade. Her teacher says that she is an excellent student and attends class daily. She received her new uniform and pair of shoes for the second semester of classes. Her class has just begun a unit on division. This is a very difficult skill for Genesis and all her classmates. In Language Arts, she has been learning to complete a summary table on short stories. Genesis is still playing baseball with the Pirates. This season they have switched from teeball to coach pitch baseball. Genesis really enjoys being a part of this team. Thank you for continuing to believe in her!
