Creative Writing: Letter to Reverend Brown

Extracts from this document...


Rational Form The objective of my first assignment was to write a piece of text reverend Brown could have written just before his departure. In chapter 21 can be found that the reverend cares a great deal about his mission and thus the people of Umofia. Therefore, he would want the mission to be succesful after his departure too. One way of contributing to this would be to write a letter to his successor in which he gives advice on how to deal with the Ibo people succesfully. This precisely is my frist written task. To make it seem as if it were reverend Brown who has written the letter I had to use a certain style of writing which differs from my personal language style. This has two reasons. First of all, the novel �things fall apart� is set in the end of the nineteenth centrury. Even though many words we use today already excisted in that period, the vocabulary most commonly used was different. ...read more.


Emma Bornebroek Assignment Dear Reverend Smith, My name is Jacob Brown and I am the current missionary in the West-African Ibo village to which you will be send out shortly. At your arrival in Umofia you will not find raw soil. I have been spreading the word of God in this town for well-nigh four years now. Sadly, this epoch in my life will soon come to an end as I can no longer ignore signs indicating a worsening health. No doubt, going elsewhere is a step that needs to be taken, but the departure of my physical appearance should not be accompanied by the knowledge I have gained. Therefore, I am writing you this letter regarding my experiences and advices on how to make the sown seeds sprout here in Umofia. Over the years I have learned a lot by talking with several important tribesmen. Repeatedly, religion was the subject of these conversations, and despite the graceless conceptions of these men the dialogues always remained peaceful as I refrained from becoming too zealous. ...read more.


It are the teachers together with the students which can make a school to a success. Here, not many attended the institution at first, but I kept stimulating the native people to send their children to school. Now, having proven their advantages, growing numbers of pupils are send to the school thus also showing that the people have come to trust the church. This has also proven to be a great gain as it offers the people necessary skills for reading the Bible. Yet, even when one makes use of all these methods, guiding the Ibo people to the right path can be a challenging mission at times. Therefore, it should not be expected that it can be accomplished in a short period. Long ways have already been covered in Umofia but even longer paths are still to be walked. In doing this, patience will be a inescapable virtue, but with the help of God I am certain you will be able to continue growing the seeds sown in Umofia. God bless you, Reverend Brown ...read more.
