Off to the camp site we trudged. Sounds of the melodious music were booming from the speakers with the congregation dancing to the songs in their local dialect. They were excited.

Abraka Chronicles 2013: Day 2 – Coincidence or a God incident

Thanks for reading my chronicles. I thought a bit of reflection today on how we got to Abraka, Delta State would be appropriate. “Why Abraka?” was a question I heard over and over again leading up to the mission.  To be sincere, the criteria used for choosing the place is unknown to me. Abraka was tagged a high risk area far from

Abraka Chronicles 2013: D Day Minus 2 – Day of Rest.

Today is Sunday. I decided it was going to be my day of rest.  Locked myself in the house and did nothing.  Absolutely nothing.  I cannot describe the peace and sense of renewal I felt after a whole day rest. My friends, who had more energy than I, decided to visit the beach.  Reports from our in house papazari indicated that they

I was woken up at 5.00 am in Ibadan by the sounds of the muslim call to prayer. Come on guys, give me a break. I need some more sleep.  I prayed and went back to bed to be woken again not by our neighbour’s megaphone but by the sweet voice of my mother in law blessing me. Olorun a to ju e, wa a da gba, Olorun olupese a

We arrived on time in Lagos.  There were 8 of us on the same flight – Yemi, Kemi, Dolapo, Sis Benny, Sis Hannah, Sis Elizabeth, Tanito and I.  I had checked in online.
