Bio

Jose Angel lives with his parents and three brothers in a small home constructed out of scrap pieces of wood. His parents both run a little shop out of their home where his dad repairs shoes and his mom works sewing. They work hard to support their children, but make very little money. Jose Angel says of his family, “[They are] the best in the world because they love me.”  Jose Angel is currently in his last year of preschool and is looking forward to his graduation in December 2014. He loves to sing and to paint in school. In his free time, Jose Angel loves to play baseball and he dreams of becoming a professional baseball player.

Jose Angel and his family are so excited about his sponsorship! This has been such a blessing for his family. Jose Angel was able to receive a new backpack and all of the school supplies that he needed in order to finish out the last month of school. Jose Angel graduated from preschool on December 10th. Without sponsorship, he would not have been able to participate in his graduation ceremony. He and his family also participated in a health teaching on water-born illnesses and received a water filter for their home to ensure that they will have clean drinking water. He is enjoying his break from school and spending time with his family. Jose Angel will begin 1st grade in February 2015.

June 13, 2015

Jose Anyel began the first grade in February. Through his sponsorship, he received his uniform, school shoes, backpack, and the materials he needed for his class. Beginning the first grade can be a difficult transition for many students. Some students have a hard time stepping into a more school-like setting. Jose Anyel has been attending weekly tutoring sessions taught by New Song staff. He participates well but is struggling some in putting his letters together to make words. Jose Anyel’s dad has begun coaching baseball through the New Song Mission baseball ministry and Jose Anyel gets to play on his team. He loves baseball and attends most every practice.

November 2015

Jose Angel is such a sweet boy. He attends weekly tutoring sessions taught by New Song staff directed at first graders. Jose Angel is struggling to learn to read and write. His mom has been working with him to practice these basic concepts and through his sponsorship, he has been able to receive private tutoring from a teacher in the community. Jose Angel’s teacher comments that he is very well behaved and tries to do his work. He is also having difficulty learning the math concepts they are studying in his class. He stays positive and works hard in his tutoring sessions. Through his sponsorship, he received his second uniform and pair of school shoes of the year and was able to participate in his school’s Mother’s Day and International Kid’s Day events.

April 2016

We are so proud to say that Jose Angel began the second grade in the beginning of February. He worked so hard to pass the first grade and attended tutoring, not only at New Song, but also within the community. His progress from the beginning of the year to the end of the year was incredibly remarkable. It is evident of how much his mom values his education and his sponsorship. Thanks to his sponsorship, Jose Angel received his uniform, shoes, backpack, school supplies, and an athletic uniform to be able to participate in his physical education class. In math, Jose Angel’s class has been learning how to tell time on a clock. This can be a difficult topic for many students and his mom has been working with him at home. Jose Angel’s dad recently left the family to live somewhere else. This has been incredibly difficult for the family as it came as a surprise to them. Jose Angel’s mom has not been receiving the child support that she should be for his care. Fortunately, his mom, who works as a seamstress from her house, has had more jobs from the community recently and has been able to cover her expenses. Jose Angel’s sponsorship has been a huge blessing to the family during this difficult time.

Fall 2016

Jose received his second uniform of the school year in July. He is currently halfway through his second grade year and says he likes his teacher because she gives out candy to the class. Through his sponsorship, Jose has been able to receive his needed school supplies including notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, and a geometry set. He was also able to go on a field trip with his class. While Jose does well on his report card, we have noticed that he struggles maintaining information. Jose has improved so much with his reading but has a difficult time understanding what he is reading. His top grades are in physical education and civics in which he received 96% on his second report card. Jose is incredibly blessed to have his mom who works with him to help him succeed. She wants him to do well and puts that as an importance in the family. Jose’s dad has been back and forth living at home and not living with the family, which is difficult for a child to understand. In June, Nicaragua experienced a strong earthquake. Jose comments that he was very afraid and stayed with his family during that time.
