Thanks to the generous donation from Joyce Jorgensen, Yah has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She received an incomplete for the 2020/2021 school year. Due to COVID-19 outbreak, schools in Liberia had irregular school schedule. This combined with the lack of technology in the schools, some schools made the decision to keep students in their current grade level for the 2021/2022 school year. Yah was kept in her current grade level of K-1 grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her mother and still wants to be a pastor when she grows up.
Meet Yah, who has been generously sponsored by Joyce Jorgensen on behalf of the estate of Dennis Valstad. She is 8 years old and is in the K-1 grade this year. She lives in Sopea, Liberia with her mother. Her father died of a suspected stroke a few years ago. He was complaining of pains in his hand and he died the following day. Her interests are to preach the gospel and sing and she hopes to be a pastor when she grows up.
