Karla received her second uniform and pair of school shoes in July. She is extremely thankful to be sponsored again. Karla has an incredibly sweet, loving spirit who is learning about the Lord more and more. Karla has become active in the New Song youth group. In September, Karla participated in the Independence Day parade with her school marching in the band. This is the first year she was able to participate in the high school level and she enjoyed being a part of it. Karla’s sponsorship was able to cover the costs of this event. Her sponsorship also gave her family food provisions during a particularly difficult time of the year. Like many families, Karla’s family struggles to make ends meet during this time of the year. Karla lives with her aunt and cousins who care and provide for her. Her sister and nephew live nearby and Karla helps to take care of him on a regular basis. She is so caring and attentive to him. He loves her!

Karla finished her first year of high school at the end of November. She struggled some in a few of her classes especially math in the second half of the school year. Karla wants to do well in school and works hard to do so. At the end of the school year, Karla received supplies for several school projects including a science project in which she made an example of a human bone out of wood. She was also able to participate in an end of the year celebration with her class. In December, Karla and her family received a water filter and teaching on water borne illnesses. This will provide her family with clean, purified water for several years.

Karla started her 2nd year of high school in February 2015. She received her new uniform, shoes, backpack, and school supplies. She also received an athletic outfit to fully participate in her PE class. Karla works hard in her classes. Her sponsorship has helped her to complete special class projects, investigations, and create maps for her geography class. She has also become very involved in the church’s youth group. Karla loves being a part of this group! We are excited to see her grow through this discipleship. She is entering into her teenage years where she has struggled with her attitude and honesty. Our sponsorship staff has been talking with her and giving her advice on how to become the type of young woman that she wants to be.

December 2015

Karla is working hard in school, but school is difficult for her. She has a C average overall in the first semester of 8th grade. She is currently failing math, but is working hard to bring her grade up to passing. At the end of the first semester, she completed her geography class and now has begun studying history in the second semester. They are starting the semester studying to conquerors of Nicaragua. Karla says that math and history are her most challenging classes. Her favorite class is Language and Literature. Karla received her new uniform and shoes for the second semester of classes. Through her sponsorship, she was able to participate in a field trip with her school. Karla also participated in her school’s marching band during the Independence Day parade in September. Karla played the guira, a traditional Nicaraguan instrument. She enjoyed participating in this activity. Karla has been doing well personally. We have seen an improvement in her attitude and we have not had any more issues with dishonesty since our sponsorship staff met with her.

April 2016

Karla began her third year of high school at the beginning of February. Thanks to her sponsorship, she received her uniform, backpack, shoes, school supplies, and an athletic outfit to be able to participate in her physical education class. At the end of the school year last year, Karla’s top grade was in Spanish. Spanish continues to be her favorite class because she loves learning about the Nicaraguan poet, Ruben Dario. She enjoys reading stories and poems written by this author. English is Karla’s most difficult subject in school and works hard to keep her grades up. Her easiest subject is math. Karla’s mom does not work and her sister works washing laundry and cleaning houses. Sponsorship is important to her family as it provides her with all the tools she needs to succeed. Karla continues to attend New Song Mission Nicaragua’s youth group. She was chosen along with nine other youth to go on a day-long service trip. She did a great job and was a vital member of the team in raising funds for the trip.

Fall 2016

Karla received her second uniform and pair of school shoes of the year in July. She is halfway through her third grade year of high school and is working hard to bring her grades up. On Karla’s first report card of the year, she was failing two classes but has pulled her grades up in both geography and English. Karla’s top grades are in Spanish (89%) and culture (85%). In her high school, the students study geography for the first semester and move onto history in the second semester. Currently, Karla is learning about the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, and China. In Spanish, her class has been having round table discussions about the Nicaraguan poet and author, Ruben Dario. In the last few months, Karla had to attend custody hearings with the government’s social services department. Karla had been living with an adult neighbor and her family who loved having Karla live with her and considered Karla family. Karla’s mom, however, wanted Karla to live with her. Ultimately, Karla moved in with her mom, which can be an unstable environment. Please be praying for her during this transition season.
