Desperate to find a job


May 19, 2018

Dear Pastor,

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I am a regular reader of your column and a listener of your programme.

However, it is my first time writing to you. My life is a mess. Sometimes, I feel as if I cannot breathe, and I don't know what to do. I am a 26-year-old woman who is in desperate need of a job.

I am very poor, and I have had a rough life.

Pastor, I will do anything to get a job so that I can help my little siblings to have a better life. I met a guy a few years ago.

He is not rich, but he is a working person who tries to help my siblings and me in any way possible. He worked and saved his little money to send me to a practical-nursing school.

But, pastor, it's like I wasted his hard-earned money because I cannot get a job.

I don't know what to do. I cry and pray so much. Sometimes I wonder what my purpose on this earth is.

It hurts to see my little siblings go to bed without a good meal, and I feel useless because I cannot help them. I have written so many applications, and I have never got a phone call.

There are people who keep telling me that if I don't go overseas, I will never make it with this career. I believe in working for what I want, so I am asking you to help me with a job.

I have a City and Guilds practical nursing diploma. Please, pastor, I would be grateful if you could help me.


Dear O.P.,

I suggest that you put an ad in 'the Daily Gleaner' or 'the Sunday Gleaner'. You should get a response from such a newspaper ad. You are very ambitious.

I am glad that your boyfriend has helped you by sending you to school and is still helping you otherwise. That is what good men do. They empower their women. The Lord is going to honour what he has done by granting you a job.

In the meantime, I suggest that you continue to seek jobs. Don't give up at all. Let the whole world know that you are seeking a job. You will succeed. You have my prayers.
