Bio

Joshua lives with his parents and older sister in a small wooden house on the same property as their extended family. Their family is very tight-knit, loving, and boisterous. His dad is currently without work. He works as a truck driver, but right now there is a problem with the truck and the company has cut his position until they have a working vehicle for him to use. His mom works at New Song's cafetin. Joshua started 1st grade in February 2014. His favorite class is math. He dreams of becoming a truck driver like his dad.

Joshua is so excited to begin this school year sponsored! Thank you for your investment into Joshua and his education. He finished his first grade year in December and began the second grade at the beginning of February. He has received his backpack, uniform, school shoes, and extra supplies for the new year. This year, his classes will work more on writing in cursive and beginning to practice the multiplication tables. Joshua loves Sunday school especially playing the games, singing songs, and playing with his friends.

June 2015

Joshua is doing well in his second grade year. He received his first report card and is passing all of his classes. Almost all of his grades are remarkably high with top grades in math (95%), language arts (93%), and physical education (92%). His favorite class is math and they are learning about multi-digit addition and subtraction. He says that it is easy for him and enjoys practicing. In language arts, Joshua is learning about synonyms and antonyms. In June, Joshua’s mom left for Costa Rica to look for work. Joshua misses his mom when she is gone and because his dad travels a lot for work, his older sister helps to take care of him. This is difficult for both of them as his sister is only 15 years old. Through Joshua’s sponsorship, he was able to go to the New Song Clinic when he wasn’t feeling well. His school had activities celebrating Mother’s Day and International Kid’s Day. Thanks to his sponsorship, Joshua participated in these events.

December 2015

Joshua is doing well in the second grade and is passing all of his classes. His top grades are in culture and in his vocational class. Joshua loves school but sometimes has a hard time paying attention and staying quiet while the teacher is talking. In math, his class has started the beginning stages of multiplication and learning the tables. Joshua is happy that his mom has returned from Costa Rica as she travels there a lot for work. A few months ago, Joshua’s older sister left home to live with her boyfriend. This has been a hard transition for Joshua as she played more of a mother role especially while his mom was in Costa Rica by helping him getting ready for school, putting him to bed at night, and helping him with his homework.

April 2016

Joshua began third grade in February 2016. He received his uniform, shoes, backpack, school supplies and an athletic outfit to participate in his PE class. Joshua loves his new teacher this year! His favorite class is math because he enjoys working with numbers especially solving addition and multiplication problems. Joshua is proud of himself because he is learning better classroom behavior and how to complete dialogues. Thanks to his sponsorship, Joshua was able to receive medical care and medicine through the New Song clinic.

Fall 2016

One of the challenging things for Joshua this year is that his mom has been traveling back and forth to Costa Rica looking for work. When she is out of the country, Joshua’s older sister becomes his main caretaker because of his dad’s long work hours driving a truck. It’s been difficult for Joshua to have so much inconsistency in his home life, but he remains a very sweet and caring boy. He continues to work hard in third grade. He has a B+ average overall in his classes. His best grades are 90% in Cultural Studies, Civics, and PE. Joshua has begun learning how to divide in his math class. Joshua received a new uniform and pair of shoes for the second semester of classes as well as additional school supplies that he needed to be successful in school. His sponsorship also enabled him to participate in an excursion to an aquatic park. He was also able to visit the New Song clinic to receive needed medical care and medicine.
