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:”

I was finally able to go downtown under the bridge and get some shots of the new mural. There’s so much hurt happening right now. Every time I read a blog or website in Jos, its focus is murder, tribal wars, political disarray, and… Continue Reading “There’s Hope.”

The Women of Hope and Batik Fabric

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.
