Friendship Factors

Today we had a complicated talk with a gentle lady name Jannah which stands for
Gracious Gift. She was an interesting give-a-go lady who adores talking and is very
joyful. She enjoys talking with others and getting people interested in something and is
very friendly! She is very humorous.

Her talk was about Friendship Factors and she gave us some tips on how to make friends
and how to make yourself look stupid! She talked about many things including “Girl Girl
friendships” and “Guy Guy friendships”, also she added “Girl Guy friendships” which
everyone was disgusted by the thought. She talked more about how girls take friendships
really farand how boy’s don’t really and aren’t as sensitive about what people call them!

She gave us 6 categories, while elaborating on each of them very slowly so that we would
understand her meaning. The two that I found most important was
“How To Make Friends” and “How to embarrass yourself in front of others”, let’s say you
were trying to show off on a motorised bike trying to do a wheelie while in your mind you
have no idea on what your doing because you’ve never done it before. Some of the ways
that you can be a good friend is by just being yourself otherwise you will make yourself
look like a idiot in front of everyone!

Writing Journal Entry 2019

Walt: Communicate ideas on a topic

(Write a journal entry from the point of view of one of the people in the photographs)

“I was 5 years old and a little nervous on my first march across the big bridge.” I explained “I was standing right in the front waving my flag while standing next to the man who was holding the cross all dressed in black and white robes”
“and now it’s your first time to march across the great bridge and preach and pray to God and say thank you lord that there’s a way, there’s a way to your holy house!”
I said in a preaching way, lifting my voice at the end of the sentence to emphasize what I was trying to tell the little students in front of me.

Later on that day we began the walk across while singing holy songs and preaching and praying and thanking the lord for all the good things he has brought to us.
If you don’t understand why we march across the great bridge then let me tell you, we march across the bridge because it symbolizes us walking across the bridge that Jesus made because he loved us and he wanted good people to go to heaven! Once the march was finished we stopped at the end of the day and I did the honours of preaching to everyone about why we do this every year!

We all stopped at the end of the day just before nightfall to acknowledge what we did and why we did it. Once we were done we all got to our house we had a massive feast with each other and had a great time for the rest of the night. When we were all full people started to leave and me and my family headed to bed!

Task Description:
This week we had to picture ourselves assomeone else and write a narrative on what happens next. We chose from a selection of pictures but I chose the one with a christian man and a crowd marching across a long bridge while the man holds a big cross! I found it hard.

Writing Test Term 1 2019 - A Special Place In Our Community

Title: The Most Special Place In Our Community

Today I will be explaining to you about what I think is the most special thing in my community.
The most special place to me could be none other than, Church.
Have you ever been to church and been reborn?

Church is a fantastic place where you get to express yourself around others because you can be
so into Gods worship and that’s a very good thing. The reason why I love Church is because I
love being who I am and hanging out with others and chatting and opening myself up to God!
My church is none other than Tamaki Community Church/TCC on Court Crescent, Glen Innes,
New Zealand!

For others who don’t like church I am totally fine with that, I love seeing people being prayed on
or reborn by baptism. Church is God’s house by the way and we have to look after it, that’s why
our church puts in all our offerings into the church to praise God and do the right thing! In my
church there are around 48 people that go there and every year we have a church camp and
everyone finds it so awesome, even me!

At church I am looking forward to my own baptism which I know that I am very excited for it. I
also am aiming to get more connected into God and find out more about him by praying and
reading the bible which in our church we call that 10 Minutes because spend 10 minutes with
God and you’ll definitely feel renewed! I am very glad that God is in my life!

You know people say that their afraid of dying well i’m not I just can’t wait to die cause’ then I
can hopefully get into heaven which is God's kingdom and the best place in the universe. If you
do not know what heaven is well then let me tell you it is a fantastic place where you get to do
anything but you are always happy and you have eternal life, which is so cool!

If you didn’t know that God has two special companions with him then let me explain who they
are and what they are famous for, God’s two special companions are Jesus Christ and The Holy
Spirit, Jesus is actually God’s only son and he was the one who died on the cross to save our
sins which would have been a huge sacrifice for God to make. The Holy Spirit is amazing not
God’s son or daughter though, (to be honest I don’t even know if The Holy Spirits a he or she)
The Holy spirit can do great things such as renew you, help you to stay committed to God and
so much more! Did you know that we are all God’s children even though you must be thinking
“ no my Mum and Dad are my parents ” well they are but also even your parents are children of
God, everyone in the entire world is a child of God, which I am very proud to be!

There is one problem in this world, it is and I should probably warn you that it is not good to
follow this bad man named Satan/The Devil as he corrupts you and takes you to the darkness
and can bring terrible things in your life like temptation to do the wrong in life, that’s why it’s
good stay with God because God will protect you from the evil of Satan. We don’t usually talk
about The Devil and it’s good not to, so what I am trying to say is follow God, do the right thing!
You know how people say that while your and adult and you’ve made some bad decisions and
you wanna change them but you think you can’t then cast out that because that’s The Devil is
trying to trick you to do bad things, but if you really wanna fix up your life then do it, it’s never
too late to worship God and to go to Heaven because that has happened before to many people!

I am into God because I know that I can trust him through everything I do and I can have faith in
him and I can believe in him while he offers me hope and love and appreciation! Even when
your feeling down you can easily pray to God and even confess all the wrong things that you
have done wrong then God will forgive you. Did you know that some of the richest people in the
world think that they’ve got enough money to do anything so they stop believing in God, well
guess what happened next, everything turned into chaos.


Thank you for reading my explanation of The Most Special Place In My Community
(From my perspective). I really appreciate it and I hope you that you can learn from this and be
renewed to God and to trust him through everything like I am trying to do!

Where would you put your new TV?
1st Paragraph:
“Where should I put my new TV, hmmmmm” Mrs Tele’a said “should I
put it over there or over there!”. If your wondering what Mrs Tele’a is
doing then let me tell you, Mrs Tele’a and her family have just purchased
there new Samsung 75 inch flat screen TV and she is deciding where is
the best place to put the TV! Mrs Tele’a is unsure whether to put the TV
in the lounge or the bedroom!
2nd Paragraph:
“Hello Mrs Tele’a” Mrs Tele’a hears a friendly voice behind her and
turns around to greet Toby “How have you been” Toby continued “ i’ve
been fine thank you, it’s just I have no idea where to put this new TV, I
was thinking either in the lounge or bedroom.” “ would you like some
help?” “I’d love you to” Mrs Tele’a smiled at the thought. “So how are
we gonna do this?” “here’s what we’ll do”. Together they both cleared
everything out of the way and finally decided where to put the new TV!
3rd Paragraph:
They both lifted the TV and moved to the west side of the lounge room
near the window and placed it on a wooden shelf, it fitted perfectly and
it even looked good, Mrs Tele’a was happy to see it done and dusted.
They plugged it in to the nearest plug in in her house. Now it was time to
tidy everything up!
Thank you all the readers around the world for reading my narrative I
hope you’ve enjoyed it!
