A Time to Rejoice!

Oh friends, I come to you all with happy tears. Jesus has been putting it on my heart to “rejoice” and be full of the joy He is providing, as I read through major events happening in the lives of those near and far– those in Nigeria, and those near to me.

What’s Going on in Nigeria?

Hello friends,

It has been awhile since I’ve talked directly about Nigeria or the Chibok girls. Because of this, I wanted to take some time here to share about three things going on in Nigeria as we speak. Hopefully, by knowing these things, we can become more informed people of prayer.

Here they are:

  1. The “Boko Haram Kingpin” Nkunzi, a well-known Boko Haram leader, was shot dead in a gunfight on Tuesday. His body was found in Pretoria; his girlfriend was also found with bullet wounds, and was taken to the hospital. As depressing as this is, it is a direct answer to the prayer that God would humble those in Boko Haram and bring justice to those hurt by Boko Haram.
  2. Connected to the above event, there has been much gang warfare between the “original” or mainstream Boko Haram, and a breakaway group called Bafarasai. This warfare has claimed at least eight lives, with many of those lives being innocent. Please pray for these innocent people who are in great danger each time a bout of gang violence is had. This can also be seen as Boko Haram and other gangs demand money from the innocent for protection.
  3. There is a person that many people in Northern Nigeria are calling “John Wick,” and they are pointing to him for getting rid of Boko Haram gang members. While this is all speculation, it is very interesting that there might be a person hell-bent on killing off Boko Haram members. As said before, there seems to be a theme of vindication and justice happening as Boko Haram members are being humbled by the violence enacted towards them. Pray that if this person really exists, that they would know Christ and would be led of Him.

Crazy things are happening in Nigeria! I’ve enjoyed reading up on these stories. I may make it a weekly or bi-weekly thing, but we will see about that. Thank you all for reading, and for your prayers!

With Love in Christ,

Don’t Forget His Girls

“My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, ‘Here’s a good seat for you,’ but say to the poor man, ‘You stand there’ or ‘Sit on the floor by my feet,‘ have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?”

(James 2:1-4, NIV)

I wonder how those in Southern Nigeria– which is decidedly more “1st world” than the Northern region of Nigeria– think about those going through such pain and turmoil at the hands of terrorists. The plights of those in Northern Nigeria are many; yet, we barely hear of them in the news and on TV.

Nigeria Under Attack

People in Nigeria have been struggling for awhile now. The pain and anguish, the instability and violence, never seem to let up. I wish I could say that things are getting better, but they seem not to be…

Nigeria is being attacked by both Boko Haram and COVID-19. You might say that they are being attacked on both a physical and mental, spiritual level. How can we help a country that feels so helpless?

Always Loved by a Beautiful God

This post is not really related to the Chibok girls or Nigeria, but I wanted to share what Jesus is doing in my heart and mind. Please keep the Chibok girls in your heart and mind.


“Do you love God because He is useful, or because He is beautiful?”

A Letter to You

Dear Friends and Followers,

Tonight at church, the Lord convicted me. We were reading Revelations 2:

“I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.”
(Revelations 2:2-5, NIV)

Long story short, my heart has grown cold toward following the Lord with all of myself. Much of this has been seen in how I write this blog; I do it dutifully more than not, without the original love I had for the Chibok girls. It’s gone away.

But I know that there is hope. I want to renew my love for these women and prayers for their freedom and healing. I want to break out of religious duty and write this blog with passion. Please pray for me as I turn away from my coldness and toward loving these people with all my heart.

Thank you.

In Christ,
