Job Interview on Friday
« on: July 21, 2009, 09:40:04 PM »
Glory to Jesus Christ!

Greetings everyone. I'll try to keep this as brief as possible, so please forgive me if I get long winded. :P I am going to be going to college here in Virginia in my hometown as opposed to returning to school in FL, because tuition there has gone up. It will also be better for me academically and spiritually to stay here because the mission is right here and the school has a great pre-dental program (I plan to pursue a career as a dentist).

Since I came home from college in mid-May, I have not been able to find a job for the life of me. I applied to so many this summer and had a few interviews here and there, but nothing came of them. I finally found what I believe to be a complete God-send. It is a job as a dental assistant. It would be part time (8-16 hours/week on Fridays and Saturdays) with a rate of $12-14 an hour. I'd be able to work around my school schedule and get some great experience, which will look nice on my resume.

So I come here to the wonderful people of and ask you all to pray for me that I will get this job. I would appreciate it greatly!

In Christ,
"I will pour out my prayer unto the Lord, and to Him will I proclaim my grief; for with evils my soul is filled, and my life unto hades hath drawn nigh, and like Jonah I will pray: From corruption raise me up, O God." -Ode VI, Irmos of the Supplicatory Canon to the Theotokos

Lord, have mercy upon and bless Thine servant Andrew!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
