Hi everyone! I have a prayer request. I’m currently looking for a part time job, and there is a mall near my place, but based on the places I want to work at, there isn’t any available. So, I’m hoping you guys could pray for God to show me where to go, and a job that is flexible in timing (because I’m also studying) and also convenient in transport (because I don’t drive). Would really appreciate it :)
