Bio

Ingrid lives with her mom, dad, and younger brother Johnny. The family is very close-knit and loving. However, they struggle to meet their basic needs. Ingrid’s dad has chronic kidney disease and is no longer able to work. Her mom sells food in the local market to try and provide for the family. Also, Ingrid’s younger brother, Johnny, was born with a heart condition requiring multiple surgeries. His medical needs add to their financial struggle. Ingrid will begin her first year of high school (US 7th grade) in February 2014. She is extremely intelligent and is an excellent student. Ingrid has always been honored among the top students in her class. Her favorite subject is math and she dreams of becoming an engineer.

April 22, 2015

Ingrid finished her first year of high school in December 2014. She finished the year with B’s and C’s in all of her classes. Her best grades were in Math (88), PE (82), and English (81). In December, Ingrid and her family attended a public health teaching at New Song church where they learned about water-born illnesses. They received a water filter to ensure that they have clean drinking water in their home. Ingrid enjoyed her vacation from school. Ingrid began her second year of high school in February 2015. She received her new uniform, shoes, backpack, and school supplies. She is enjoying her new classes, especially math and English. Ingrid loves to learn new things. She even attended a community English class at a church near her home to help her advance in her English classes in school.

July 2015

Ingrid continues to do well in her second year of high school. She has a C+ average overall. Her best grades are in Civics (90%) and Technical Studies and Natural Science (both 88%). In math, her class has begun their unit on algebra. Ingrid says that this new unit of study is very difficult, but she enjoys the challenge. This is her most difficult and her favorite class. Ingrid received a scientific calculator to help improve her participation in her math class. She was also able to participate in a Mother’s day and Children’s day celebrations through her school. Ingrid was able to receive a new uniform and shoes for her second semester of classes.

November 2015

Ingrid completed her 2nd year of high school with a B- average overall. Her best grades are in PE and Science (both 100%) and Civics and English (both 91%). Ingrid has really been enjoying her English class and loves to learn a new language. Through her sponsorship, she was able to complete a special class assignment, attend a field trip with her school, and participate in her school end of the year celebration. Ingrid was also able to receive free medical care and medicine through the New Song clinic. This has been a difficult time for Ingrid’s family because her younger brother Johnny needs a second heart surgery. The family and our sponsorship staff have been communicating with various doctors and organizations, but are now waiting to hear if he has been accepted to any programs that will provide his surgery. Thank you for the help that you have given both financially and connections with doctors. Please continue to pray that the Lord will open doors for their family.

April 2016

Ingrid began her third year of high school in February. She received her uniform, shoes, backpack, school supplies and an athletic outfit to participate in her PE class. Ingrid continues to enjoy her English class most of all. She loves learning the significance of new words and has recently been practicing with the verb can. She also completed a project with her vocational studies class where she learned how to make a shirt. Ingrid said that learning sew was the most interesting project she has completed this year. Ingrid and her family are still waiting to find out if her brother has been accepted as a candidate for heart surgery. Please continue to pray for open doors for this procedure.

Fall 2016

Ingrid continues to work hard in her third year of high school. She received a new uniform and pair of shoes for her second semester of classes. She is doing so well in her classes this year. Ingrid has A’s in all of her classes except Science. Her best grades are 100% in Cultural Studies, PE, and Vocational Studies and 99% in Geography. She is so proud of her grades and is excited to be included among the top students in her class. Although Science is her most difficult class, Ingrid has enjoyed learning about caring for and protecting nature. Ingrid also completed a class project about the life and work of Ruben Dario, Nicaragua’s most famous poet. Thanks to her sponsorship, Ingrid received medical care and medicine through the New Song clinic. Ingrid’s family continues to wait for news in regards to her brother Johnny’s heart surgery. A ministry in Nicaragua has been contacting doctors in both the USA and Israel, but has yet to find a surgeon willing to perform the surgery. Ingrid has become more involved at New Song as she stepped into a role as a Sunday school helper. Ingrid has been helping with the 10-11 year old girls’ class and really loves working with this age group. It has been incredible to see her step out of her comfort zone and develop more confidence as she takes on this new role.
