Nelly is finishing up her primary school experience. Next year will be her first year of secondary school which lasts for five years under Nicaragua’s education system. Her grades are very good, consistent with all of her past report cards. She’s a very sweet person and we're excited to see what her future holds!
We wish Nelly a wonderful 13th birthday!!
Octavio November 23rd
Octavio is one of our medically sponsored children. He is suffering from Leukemia and Cerebral Palsy, but he was all smiles when Chuck visited with him in July. He is currently undergoing monthly chemotherapy treatments, once monthly, on an outpatient basis for 18 months. We are wishing Octavio a year of improved health and continued happiness.
Happy 17th birthday, Octavio!
Josue November 24th
Josue has a very supportive family who make many sacrifices (including hiring a tutor at their own expense) to give him every opportunity for success through education. Chuck said he came to him at the end of a student dinner in July to thank him and Neighbors to Nicaragua for the support he's receiving like a mature and gracious young gentleman. We wish Josue continued success in the coming year!
