Nigeria Service Update: August 2020

FAIR WARNING: It’s LONG, but totally worth it if you’re wondering what my life in Nigeria has turned into. “Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one,… Continue Reading “Nigeria Service Update: August 2020”

Dear Black Men:

Initially, I planned to use this letter as a platform to address what’s going on in society. I would comment on the police brutality. I would defend the cries for air, the pleas for breath, the petitions for equality, but God told me to… Continue Reading “Dear Black Men:”

Nairobi, Kenya

If you could be any wild animal, what would you be? I legitimately asked myself this the entire time I was on the safari in Kenya. Would I want to be as quiet and meek as an elephant or as bold and alert as… Continue Reading “Nairobi, Kenya”

Judith’s New Name.

Sundays are generally filled with laughs, reflection, and planning for the week to come. This Sunday was much different, though. This Sunday I was invited to baby “Judith’s” Dedication at church. Why’d I put Judith in quotes? We’ll get there. If you haven’t read… Continue Reading “Judith’s New Name.”

Meet Sarah and Judy.

Looking at my website, I noticed it had been over a year since I’ve posted in the “Meet a Friend” section. The purpose of my creating that page, as stated, was to shed light on some of the most compelling and impactful people I… Continue Reading “Meet Sarah and Judy.”

So much has happened in the past few weeks. Initially, I planned to talk about some of those things, but this day was too sweet not to share first. I think sometimes we glorify our hurt. We give it an unwarranted, undeserved pedestal, and… Continue Reading “The Women of Hope and Batik Fabric”

Egusi Soup ft. a Louisianian.

Okay, so I know the last time I posted, I shared some background information on Egusi soup, possible origins, and the inspiration behind why it is often coined one of the BEST Nigerian dishes. This time, I made it myself, y’all. Like, I really… Continue Reading “Egusi Soup ft. a Louisianian.”

Welcome to Nigeria.

I’m finally sharing. Initially, I planned to post on the website the day I landed in Abuja, Nigeria, then I realized how useless that would be. I decided to give myself time to experience the city of Jos before I shared. That was the… Continue Reading “Welcome to Nigeria.”

The Countdown.

Today marks ten days. It was a bit surreal once I realized that I’m less than two weeks away from calling Nigeria home. It feels like it was only a few days ago when I made the announcement. I’d gotten so used to saying… Continue Reading “The Countdown.”

Because He Said So.

6 minutes and 51 seconds. That’s how long it will take you to read this, I ask that you take that time to hear what God commanded me to share. I’ve started selling things, I’ve quit my job, and it is confirmed that my… Continue Reading “Because He Said So.”
