I want to thank you for the opportunity for the invitation to preach this past Sunday at Christ Memorial. I was a true honor and a privilege to be able to have the chance to preach at the church where my entire foundation in Christ started. I wanted to let you know how much of an impact you have been in my life when you may have least expected it. Even though I may have been young and been around several pastors and mentors, I have always appreciated the pastor that you were to me in my life. I appreciate that you embraced me at such a young age and it helped me create so many memories that have and will last a lifetime.
Thank you all for sharing a part of your lives with me and helping me to grow as a student and minister of the gospel. I wish you all a wonderful and safe happy holiday season to you and your families, love , peace, and joy from my family to all of you as advance forward in your education, careers, and all of your endeavors.
The second thing I’m writing you about is to let you know that this will not be my last time asking you to partner with me in ministry. Throughout my 20s, I see myself going on many other missions trips and taking on other ministries that could not pay well or at all - all for the sake of the Jesus. Whenever people donate to ministries it is common to not hear about how the trip went, what your money went to, or what the next need is. I recognize this reality and want to counteract it. You all are a vital part of what I do, in partnering with me in these ministries you should know how I’m doing and what is
Thank you for awarding me a scholarship to further my education at Radford University. In addition I appreciate the graduation gifts, cards and words of encouragement as I celebrated graduation from high school. I promise to work hard and use all gifts wisely. And, most importantly I can’t thank you enough for your prayers, opportunities and support given me growing up in Loudon Avenue Christian Church. Love you, Joseph Sparrow
I have learned that my love language is quality time, my apology language is asking for forgiveness, and that I need to turn toward people more when I am receiving bids. Learning about relationships has also helped me a lot in my friendships as well. I know now how to respond to a person with knowing their love and apology languages. I am so grateful that I got to spend this semester with you Pastor Kinppa. I have learned so much from you and you are defiantly someone who I look up to and try to model myself from. I just want to say thank you for all of your hard work and patience. I hope you have an amazing summer and I will see you next
I want to thank you for taking time to read my letter, I appreciate it so much, especially because I know how busy you are. I hope you can see the better part of Jesus, and I'm sorry that you are having to meet him and see the person that he really isn't.
I want to express my deepest gratitude for having me to work as an intern for 1736 Family Crisis Center over the last five months. It is an exciting opportunity for me to nurture my professional growth at the organization. It has been an invaluable experience for me and I hope I was able to provide some value to you as well.
As you probably gotten from our conversations throughout this process I am not the one to write sentimental and sappy letters, I think we’re both similar in that way. But I am going to give it a shot as you read this letter on your Confirmation Spirt Day Retreat. I’ll start off by letting you know that I am proud of you for starting this journey of Confirmation and congratulate you on deciding to embrace your faith.
Good Morning Brothers and Sisters, I feel honored and privileged to speak to you today. As many of you know, this is my last Sunday here with you for the next two years. I leave for the MTC on October 4th and will be serving in the California Ventura Mission. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to serve the Lord in this calling. I thank all of you who have taught me, and helped me to grow and prepare for my mission. It is a blessing to have learned from you.
First I want to apologize for this letter coming out so late; it has been a busy summer and also had some difficulties with losing my computer. I want to thank you guys so much for supporting me this summer as I went to Guatemala. You have no idea how much of an impact you made through your support! Something I learned in training before we went on the mission trip was that we may not see directly the impact we have on the people there, but we have planted a seed and maybe a couple years later they will sprout and become a follower of Christ. Through your support you helped plant that seed and I cannot thank you enough for helping alongside with me to further God’s Kingdom.
As this is the last day of my internship, I’d like to express my gratitude to you for a wonderful summer. I have learned a lot and gained a priceless experience thanks to the great and brilliant people I have met and interacted with during my ten weeks at the firm. I am really thankful for all the insightful and engaging conversations I have had throughout the summer and would love to pick up on those in the future.
This summer I had the chance to take on a great challenge. I completed 120 hours for my internship while at the same time working as fulltime employee. I truly mean it when I say it was a great challenge. In only 2 months I completed 120 hours in an office that was only open 8-5 Monday through Friday. I know it may seem reasonable to others and you might even ask why that would be something so difficult for me to do but it was very tough. You see, I work my total of 40 hours a week at my current job and to add more hours to my schedule seemed pretty exhausting. Unfortunately, I am not as privileged as other to have an amazing schedule like 8 to 5 or weekends off. I work overnight. Now everyone knows usually the night shift is more relaxed in
My goals for the start for my internship were simple, but quickly evolved. My goals were to gain experience and build my resume, while bringing the lessons I have learnt in college, and using my skills as an engineer to help the department of public works. Now my goals have become more specific; I would like to learn more about sewer operations, I would like to develop my computing and design skills using the tools available to the Hydraulic section and I would like to mature as an engineering professional. While at the hydraulics section, I have access to programs like MUNSYS, as well as ArcGIS. As an intern, I update and maintain sewer related features on these programs. I would like to learn everything I can to develop my skills as a designer to help me become a better engineer.
What is an internship? An internship is a work-related learning experience for individuals who wish to develop hands on work experience in a certain occupational field. Most internships are temporary assignments that last approximately three months or up to a year. After reading the essay“ Take This Internship and Shove it “ by Kamenetz Anya who graduated from Yale University, I agree with her that internships do more harm than good because of the opportunity cost, over- identify and impact on the economy, not teach the intern the skill they need for the future professional life.
