Manju is an unusually serious third grader. She is an average student on paper, but in person, she keeps the class balanced. Manju remains positive at all times. She never complains or tattles on anyone. She keeps impeccable organization by having separate notebooks for each class, in which she takes perfectly written notes.

     One of Manju’s favorite activities at Riverside is to learn the motions and words to action songs. Her favorite song is “Jesus Loves Me.” In class, she often leads her peers in the action songs, keeping them on beat.

     When asked about her relationship with God, she said with a soft smile, “God is very, very, very beautiful.”

     Please pray for Manju to continue to grow in her faith and in her studies. Ask for God’s continued encouragement in her life.
