Internship at the Foreign Office/State Department.
« on: June 18, 2017, 06:49:14 PM »
Hello all,

Recently I applied for an internship at an embassy in the Balkans. I was hoping you'd pray that I got it. It would mean a lot to me.

Thank you.

Of course!

Lord, consider your servant and grant him his desire.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

May God grant you what is best for you.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Godspeed!

Nice, I'm also trying to find an internship at anything related to international law. :) I'll pray for you.

Perhaps one day ambassador RaphaCam and ambassador Cyrillic will crack open a Bollinger at the Dutch or Brazilian embassy.

My major is International Relations and Economics. I need two internships and one study abroad.
