Fall Update

Hello Friends!
I am here again to tell you how awesome it was to start studying and to start playing soccer for Century College. This have been a wonderful change because now I feel so good meeting new people, new friends and having more new experiences. Classes are going very good without many difficulties. I feel that I understand and learn more and more every day. My grades are good. I have a A in two classes. They are called Grammar and Writing and Reading. I have a B in Speaking and Listening.

The environment is better in college because most people I am with are my same age which is awesome. My days are busy of homework, a lot homework! But I like it because that is how I am learning. Also, my new friends from college help me when I do not understand something. My hope for classes in this fall semester is learn more each day. I am putting all my effort to do it.

I am having a great time with my soccer Century College team. They are good players and good friends. I enjoy each training day but I love when we play against other teams and we win. Our season is not going so well, but we are getting better and personally I am getting better too. I have scored one goal and made three assistances of goal. I have started four of the 7 games. I am just having a wonderful time in classes, soccer and all of college!

While mostly we do normal day stuff now, we still have some time for fun things! We went to camping to Duluth for three days. That was my first time camping. My first time sleeping with the amazing nature in a tent! Those three days were wonderful!

Recently we hosted three guys for NPH Guatemala. They were in Minnesota to help the NPH office do fundraising. NPH (Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos) is the orphanage where I grew up and lived my life until coming to Minnesota. The organization has orphanages in different countries in Central America. It was very nice to have people from NPH stay with us for a week. When I was hanging out with them it make me feel very happy because I miss my NPH family a lot. 

I hope you are enjoying the Fall time! We are doing lots of raking! Thanks a lot for your generosity and love.
