What to Be Thankful For this Halloween

Did you know that, as of now, 200 million girls have had their genitals mutilated worldwide? In Nigeria, most of those mutilations occur between ages 1-4, but young women up to over 15 years old have had it done (source).
Some women have barely obtained the right to drive a car in some countries. Continue reading

“‘Narratives” (and Lies)'”: A Poem

Hi friends,
I wanted to share a piece of poetry I have recently done. I read an article from The Nation called “Boko Haram war narratives,” which dives into how how many leaders in Nigeria, and those who see over the war against BH (Boko Haram), are claiming that the fight against BH is “technically” over. I have written about this “news” before. The many “narratives” told by so many, from people on social media, to those in the Nigerian government, are telling different stories. In the midst of this, I want to know the truth… here is my plea. I hope it resonates, and causes you to pray over such corruption. Continue reading

Translating the Bible into Hausa!!!

Hi, friends. I just wanted to share a totally important, amazing opportunity.

For many years, people who speak the Hausa language (those usually found in West Africa) have had to learn english to read the Bible. But now, some people are embarking on translating the Bible into the Hausa language!!!

Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1JKA-CD4R8&feature=youtu.be

These people need to know that God Loves them– and speaks their language, as the video says. Would you pray with me over this amazing project being done, for it’s success and for many who speak the Hausa language to know Jesus?

“Dear Jesus,
We thank You for this amazing opportunity. We pray in Your Name that You would bless and Have Your Hand upon this project, and that many, many people who speak the Hausa language would come to know Your Salvation and Love.
In Jesus’ Name I pray,
Amen.”


God so Loved this (entire) world that He gave His Only Begotten Son. Learn more about His Son, Jesus, here.

Exciting News: New TV Show, Bob Loves Abishola

Last night, I came across a show called “Bob ❤ Abishola.” In the show, a man named Bob goes to a hospital, and while there, has a nurse who is a Nigerian immigrant named Abishola take care of him. He falls for Abishola—and that’s all I’ve watched so far 😊

This is way out of the ordinary for American TV, and I am excited to see how they portray Abishola and her Nigerian immigrant family. I wonder why they chose Nigeria; it will be interesting to find out. I pray that it actually sheds light on Nigeria and what is going on there, and that as the show portrays Nigerians, they would not just be seen as “another country from corrupt Africa.” Those in Nigeria are more than statistics—they are people, and I hope that this show allows watchers to see that. 

THOSE IN NIGERIA ARE MORE THAN STATISTICS—THEY ARE PEOPLE.

Please pray with me, that this show is 1) culturally correct, 2) puts Nigerians in a good light, and 3) helps shed light on what is actually going on in Nigeria. Thank you, guys!

You can find “Bob ❤ Abishola” on CBS at 8:30pm.

(I was not sponsored or asked in any way to highlight this show. I’m just excited about it!!!)

Praying for the Children in Nigeria

Jurist.org, with the Human Rights Watch, have reported that hundreds of young children, some even as young as 5 years old, are being detained for supposed links to Boko Haram. In reality, there is little to no proof of Boko Haram captivity to detain these children, yet they are being held in the dirtiest, worst of conditions. “About half of the children said they saw dead bodies of other detainees and many said they frequently suffered from thirst and hunger,” Jurist.org reports.

These kids are undergoing some of the most traumatic events possible. Who will stand up for them? Who will be their voice? Who will pray for and support them? We must rally around these precious creations of God, supporting them and speaking on their behalf… but how?

We need to pray, pray, pray. We need to spread the news and fight for the rights of these children in horrific conditions. We need to bring it to the world’s attention, so that these kids and their lives can be known. Will you partner with me in doing so?

If so, here are some things you can do:

  • Share the article I used for this blogpost.
  • Reblog this post.
  • Share this post, and/or the article used, on social media like facebook.
  • Retweet this post (I am on twitter: @BBHG_Prayer)

Let’s get the word out—and most of all, pray for these circumstances to improve, and justice to be served.

“But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”
(Amos 5:24, NIV)


Do you know Jesus?

Jesus came down to earth approximately 2,000 years ago, out of pure Love for you and I. Learn more about Jesus, His amazing love, and His Justice, here.


Please pray (find the prayer sheet here):

  • That innocent children would be freed, soon.
  • That guilty children working for Boko Haram would go through due process.
  • That the Nigerian military would not be quick to just throw children into prison.

Thank you for your prayers!!!
