Chieko Kamidate Johnson (Pastor,TLEA Denver Church/Baton Rouge Church)
Praise the wonderful name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your intercessory prayers and precious offerings.
In Denver, it’s been cool in the morning and evening, and it’s around this time that I feel the signs of autumn.
At my work, due to labor shortage and fairness to everyone, I had to work on Sunday. However, I cannot work on Sunday because of Church, I suddenly decided to look for another job. I had to find a job that was completely no work on Sunday. I can work only week day. I applied for 16 places, but it was hard to get an interview, and I finally found a workplace that would hire me. It was a Jewish retirement home. It was also a Russian Jewish Facility. My job is to prepare Kosher food. I don’t know much about Kosher but I’m learning. Every Friday evening, a Jewish rabbi comes in, blowing a shofar, praying in Hebrew, then they have a small ceremony drinking grape juice in the small cups, as if I were in Israel.
(picture below: Hallah, a Jewish braided bread eaten on the Sabbath and holidays. I make this bread at my workplace. The yellow color is from turmeric.)
It is said that here is a lot of jobs due to labor shortage, but I could not find a lot of jobs that were interested in me. I believe that God has plan for me working at this Jewish Facility. I hope to get used to the work quickly and pray that I will be able to work comfortably.
At last, I have experience hives for long time, and doctor recommended a strong medication. However, the medication has side effects, so I don’t want to use it, and I think I have to rely on God’s healing. Please pray for my healing.
1.To pray, listen, obey, and do God’s will.
2.Complete healing of my hives
3.To get used to my new work and have good balance of my work and church work
