Mother Teresa

If God asked you to live among the poorest of the poor, would you and could you do it? Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was born on August 26th, 1910, but she says that August 27th is her true birthdate because that’s when she was baptized. She was born in Skopje, Macedonia. Her father’s name was Nikollë Bojaxhiu who was an Albanian Businessman and died when she was 8, her mother Dranafile Bojaxhiu, worked as a grocer, her brother Lazar Bojaxhiu was a soldier, and her sister Aga Bojaxhiu didn’t have a job. When Agnes became a nun, she took the name of Mother Teresa and no idea that the entire world would know her by the end of her life.

Mother Teresa was a very godly and obedient woman who answered and obeyed as best she could the call from God on her life, saying that it was “His work and she was just a pencil in God’s hand”. When she was 18, she left home for Ireland to become a missionary and a nun, then six weeks after that, she left for India. The day she left was the last time she saw her mother and sister because in those days transportation took a long time and it was expensive. Mother Teresa concluded, “The life of a missionary is not strewn with roses, in fact more with thorns; but with it all, it is a life full of happiness and joy when she thinks that she is doing the same work which Jesus was doing when He was on earth, and that she is fulfilling Jesus’ commandment: “Go and teach all the nations!” Even though the life of a missionary is hard, Mother Teresa chose it because obeying the call was the most important thing to her, she was actually called to a life of poverty. She was a simple women wearing only a white sari with blue stripes that only cost only $1! For a long time she was a teacher at a school for girls, and though she had no supplies for the school, she managed to teach the children to read and write by writing words in the sand. On October 7th, 1950, the Missionaries of Charity was established which allowed Mother Teresa to actually live in the slums with the poorest of the poor along with a group of ladies who agreed to go with her. It was obvious God was with her because she experienced Pneumonia, Malaria, fractured 3 ribs, broke her shoulder bone, suffered 2 heart attacks, and even broke her collar bone! Within a 10 year period, Mother Teresa and the other sisters opened a leper colony, an orphanage, a nursing home, a family clinic, and many mobile health clinics. She was a great example to the others that worked as a Missionary of Charity an she was an amazing example of Jesus. By the time she was an old women she had earned a total of 18 awards. The Nobel Peace Prize was one of them. Mother Teresa refused most of her awards because she didn’t like how much money was being spent on her. For The Nobel Peace Prize, the person awarded the prize gets a $192,000 feast, Mother Teresa completely refused and asked them if they could donate the money to the poor in India instead and they honored that. She changed the world even though she was a small and delicate person and she feared being recognized by the world she wanted to be nothing to the world and the world be nothing to her.

Mother Teresa died Sep. 5 1997 in Calcutta, India when she was 87. But she left behind a legacy, on the 13th of March,1997 Mother Teresa retired as the head of the Missionaries of Charity, because of her lack of good health. The Missionaries of Charity completed 610 missions in 123 countries. The total number of people working in the Missionaries of Charity was, over 4,000 nuns and 300 monks and priests. At the present time, there are still Missionaries of Charity working all over the world to continue what Mother Teresa’s efforts started, in 2015 there were 5624 brothers and sisters working in 844 houses in 170 countries! When she died, Pope Francis made her a true catholic saint, but to Calcutta and all of the world she was a source of light in the darkness.

Hey Guys!!

Sorry I haven’t been updating but today I will!!
I finished my book but am still editing it. I decided to call it The Mushroom Ring. It’s kind of catchy and a mysterious kind of title, don’t you think? When I publish it I am going to sell it on Amazon for $5.oo. I suppose you’re probably thinking ‘whoah! that’s really cheap!!’ I made it that cheap because then more people will buy it, but if I did it 20 dollars or something only up to 2 people would buy it! I am thinking of doing a series of books. I thought of the second book but I want you guys to help me think of the third book. Write below in the comments you ideas, and maybe just maybe I will use them!
Thanks A lot!

Help!!

I am supposed to be writing a book for school.  I know everything that is going to happen in my story, but there is only 1 problem!!! I can’t come up with a title!! I will tell you what my story is about! Its about a girl named Samantha and she is a very positive girl she goes on a lot of adventures to places like Narnia.  She loves all her adventures but the thing she hates most is that her little sister, Isabelle, comes with her to every one!  Except for one.  It was the one where problems really needed to be solved, this is what she wanted, to solve problems.  She tries to turn the villain, which is a dwarf and his name is Figruli, to be a nice man and understanding, but he is stubborn.

Things happen and Samantha realises that things are different -in a bad way- when her sister is not there and she doesn’t know what is going on and needs Isabelle.  At the last second when Samantha is a bout to leave Figruli becomes good.  She goes home and tells Isabelle how sorry she is and from the day on they are always on adventures.

 

Please post in the comments what you think my title should be, I need at least 10 ideas to start picking my favourites then picking my title!!

 

Thanks!!;)

A good leader

In my opinion, a good leader is a leader that encourages, keeps their followers going in their job by nice and kind words, and a leader that is not so bossy and threatening. Just like the queen of hearts in the Alice in wonderland book. She shouts threats like “off with his his head!” or “off with her head!” She is not very patient with her people! If you are a boss or a leader of something it is easy to be a good one. You just have to believe in your workers and in yourself. Like being encouraging and saying helpful things like “It’s okay you can do it” and “you have helped me a lot”and not things like “you never finish on time” or threatening things like “ I’ll pay you less!”. If you are positive and kind it keeps your workers motivated and willing to continue their job. Like my dad, he is encouraging in my sport and he sets a good example of how I should be with my children when I have them! Both my parents are encouraging to me especially when I am having trouble, they help me feel better about myself and how I feel!

Things About Me……

I like to learn as many new things as I can from Homeschool so that I can share it with you!  I am a very active girl, though I like to dress up for plays and operas and stuff like that, but I really like to get dirty and play rough.  I am shy around people I don’t know, I am a BIG animal lover, my favorite entertainment is my brother’s own comedian show he is hilarious (he has a blog adventureswithjakin.wordpress.com) , and most of all spending time with God.  I am an American that lives in Egypt, and I love babysitting so much that I go and babysit my mom’s friend’s kids for 50 EGP!
