I started sponsoring Evelin back in the end of August, after I lost Deysi because she left the program, but I haven’t posted in awhile. As a teacher, the end of August and all of September are very very busy times. I would work all day and then bring home more with me and work through the evening until I crashed and had to go to bed. It’s the life of a teacher in the beginning of the school year, and really, year round. But I’m beyond blessed to have this job after an awful school year last year at my old job. I have 40 little preschoolers that I just love and get to work with every day.
However right now, I’ve been spending a lot of much needed time on the couch after surgery on my back on Thursday. I’ve had lots of surgeries, including several on my back, which I think is the most painful location. I’m headed back to work in just 2 days, and right now, my body doesn’t feel ready to keep up with all the demands and physical aspects of the job. I’m praying that I take a turn for the better and am ready by then. But for now I’m going to catch up on my sponsor kids’ news while I can! There will be a series of posts over the next several days.
First up is Evelin. It was originally going to be the plan that I was going to go to Guatemala this coming summer, so when Deysi left, I needed to find another child from Guatemala. (Although now that the June Dominican Republic dates have been announced and I’ve found out that they’d work too, it’s a tougher decision). It took me some time and prayer to find the child that I was meant to sponsor, but Ms. Evelin Adali is it.
Evelin is 7, and her school performance is above average. Some of the things on her long list of favorite activities include walking, dolls, art/drawing, ping pong, and singing. Don’t you just love that smile and the hands on the hips?
