Home Country: South Africa
Letter To My Future Host Family
A daily routine that was required of me while being with them consisted of:
Waking Kids up, helping with breakfast, taking then to school and fetching them again after. Making lunch/snack, doing laundry, playing with them, taking them to parks and play dates, playing soccer with them, cleaning up after them (picking up toys, dishes etc) and honestly i found joy every moment i spent with the kids, i love playing games and spending time with them. I gave my all when i was with the kids and was fully focused on them and making sure they were okay while having fun! Everytime they see Jonathan they think of a fun! I can promise that if you accept me into the family i will show so much love and have the most fun time with them as well as teaching them responsibilities and being sturdy!
I am so excited to start this journey with you guys! I cant wait to meet you in person and start this chapter together. We are going to have the best time and the most fun together. I cant wait to share some South African things with you guys and experience the American life. The kids and i are going to have the best time and are going to be well looked after! I havent met you guys yet but i already know you guys are going to be awesome! Cant wait for this journey together! A little about myself, im 21 currently working for my church. Im involved in Children Ministry and Youth Ministry! I really have a great passion and love when it comes to working with kids, even when i come back i want to go into teaching or even get planted back in a church here somewhere once again involved in Childrens Ministry.
