I come from Mazatlan, Mexico a beautiful and growing turistic Port one of the most importants besides others, my family have some Restaurants of international food, I move here to Tulsa just was coming for vacation and end up stock with a new job, friends, and nice senior people.
My Goal to do difference in this world will be help people poor people, teach them the word of God in any religion,!! I'm open to everything, I been learning thru this 10 years living here in Tulsa, Ok "The Buckle of the Bible Belt" (if I'm not wrong) a lot of Religions, that separe people, I my Goal is to talk to people and teach them that Religions Good Religions are like the Rivers, all of them go to the Ocean!! the same with Religions, all of them go to God, the Good God.
I will like to work with people of Behavioral Menthal Problems, and movements, Seniors, and people who suffer from terminal sickness.. They need attention, love, and listen and learn everyday of their lives the Word of God, so they can be strong and live the rest of their days in Hapiness, besides their terribles sickness.
Cancer, HIV, Lukimia, etc, etc. We need more people with warm hearts, compromise to work and cheer this people!!We can do it, we can help and change a lite bit or a lot this world of Coldness, Materialistic, and full of superficial things, Credit cards, thinks that they will never pay, and will never take with them when they die, only their Spirit, full of God, Happiness, and Joy. Because "Bigger is the one that live in Us, that the people that surond us"!!!Anyway I can continue writing a Bible.. but I will like to put a little ball of mustard, and make people sufering in the darkness of their souls and living by themselves, with no body to say anything to them, to demostrate that somebody care fisically about them, besides God!!! wich is the First one that has to be in their Soul.I hope somebody have a little time of there busy lives to read this mail, maybe is not the best but it comesfrom HEAR

I come from the Fiji Islands which has a climate and environment similar to Hawaii, beautiful seas and people but has been affected by military coups for the last two decades which has affected many people like me to leave the country in search for jobs and better oprtunities for our children. I am actually here in hawaii searching for teaching or tutoring jobs either for grades 7&8 Maths and Economics OR management training in the area of culture & values in the Not for profit sector, team development, staff & volunteer motivation, mentoring teams.
I have had a wide experience working with Pacific Islands Not for profit sector since 1999 and studied in both Australia and New Zealand

I have just recently moved here to Oahu (north shore, Haliewa) in Jan of 09, from Wa state.
My husband has lived here for over 20 years. He was in the Navy here, retired a year and half ago and now works as a civilian. I, as I mentioned above came from Wa state. Had lived there my entire life. I worked in the dental field for the past 28 years. My previous employer for 19 of that 28.
It has been quite a change form me. Iam trying to adjust to not only a entirely different climate, and way of life. Its beautiful here yes, but so is the Pacific Northwest. :( It has also been hard not knowing anyone, or places. I have found myself almost depressed at times when I should actually be thrilled Iam living in "paradise" right??

I am not currently working. Iam not so sure I want to go back into the dental world at this point and will consider trying somethingn new. The pay scale here in Hawaii for Dental auxillary is not near what it is in Wa state and you are not allowed here in Hawaii to do as much work as you can in Wa eitehr. So not quite sure what I want to do. I have contemplated going back to school. Aloha for now~~
