5 COUNTRIES I STRONGLY HOPE TO VISIT BEFORE 30 AND WHY


So my birthday is in a bit. Well, a month and many days away;January 23 precisely. Oh wait! NOT my 30th birthday. 
The pretty 30 is a few years ahead and I’m joyfully anticipating that day; but before I turn 30, here are a list of countries I strongly hope to have visited.



1.   Mexico: Everyone who owns and watches the famous Telemundo station is familiar with some of the beauty of the Mexican culture. Just before you assume, Telemundo didn’t form my desire to visit mexico. I first knew about Mexico when I was 7 years old, from a story book which also mentioned Newzealand. I had never heard of those countries before and I kept wondering what it would be like to live in them.
(Laughs)
Well, I later got to know they speak Spanish. A language I consider the most romantic in the world and I’m trying in my little way to learn the basics. #Winks
I want to visit mexico for the love of the blue oceans, their music and I hear their food is amazing. And oh, about the music, I want to dance salsa with my significant other right on the soil of mexico so I’m definitely not going here alone.



2.   Somalia: Oh the land of Somalia. My heart is drawn to the people and the nation as an entity. Somalia has had quite a full share of war, poverty and hopelessness. My heart is drawn particularly to youths, children and the women of Somalia.
According to Central Intelligence Agency Library, Somalia has one of the world’s lowest primary school enrollment rates – just over 40% of children are in school – and one of world’s highest youth unemployment rates. Life expectancy is low as a result of high infant and maternal mortality rates, the spread of preventable diseases, poor sanitation, chronic malnutrition, and inadequate health services.
During the two decades of conflict that followed the fall of the SIAD regime in 1991, hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes. Today Somalia is the world’s third highest source country for refugees, after Syria and Afghanistan. Insecurity, drought, floods, food shortages, and a lack of economic opportunities are the driving factors. My visit to Somalia would be to give eternal and physical life to them. I really want to go to this one as soon as possible.

3.  South Sudan
This country has pretty much been in war since 2013. At first the name was the initial pull for me. By the way, it just became an independent nation in 2011. It has very similar challenges as Somalia and I’m looking forward to taking my JESUS and HIS LIFE GIVING PROVISIONS to them.


4.  Italy
Hmmmm, I know what you might be thinking. (Laughs)
It’s unfortunate that when someone mentions this country in Nigeria, the first thing that comes to mind is “human trafficking and/or prostitution”. 
Well, I would want to go to Italy because I’m fascinated about how they’ve remained the only brand name for original leather and anything exquisite and classy.
Italian shoes, Italian bags, Italian cushion, Italian wristwatches and so on. It’s like when you add the name Italian to anything , it suddenly becomes the highest quality. I beg make I go (Please let me) experience the exquisite class of Italy.


5.  United Kingdom
This nation is somehow prominent in providing Educational proficiency.  I like their accent but I’ll rather speak/sound American cos I love the American English more.
I’ll like to go to the UK to glean from their educational proficiency. 

Do you have desires/dreams you hope to achieve before you turn 30?
Let’s hear it.

Cheers to your fulfillment

GOD IS KIND : The hurt of dissapointment

Sometimes you can't even ask why. Perhaps because you know everything doesn't quite lie in God's hands. Yet when it comes to things you have absolutely no control over, you are tempted to think it's in His hands. Even at that, you still can't ask why. Well maybe you can, but I can't.  I have had a good dose of pain and disappointment enough to separate my ideology of God from life's occurrences. Before life started giving me rude shocks, I used to think God will always protect me by preventing pain. As I grew older and met with more battles, I learnt to accept the part of God's protection which delivers  me from pain well after I have felt its excruciating bite and I came to this conclusion; God is and is forever kind. The earth is fallen; I may not be exempted from all its ugliness, but God will always be kind enough to deliver me if He doesn't prevent it.   By the time you will be reading this, I would have shared my testimony. While I hop

GOD IS KIND: The emptiness of hope

Read part 1 here  In Lagos, I fell ill as soon as I landed. The city is crazy. The traffic is unholy and the carbon monoxide infested air is an extension of hell. I didn't want to get back on that road to any hospital so we got a qualified nurse to come treat me at home.  The Nurse said she couldn't treat me except I did a pregnancy test alongside malaria test. Both came out positive. I was glad that the sickness wasn't Lagos madness inspired. My baby must have wanted to notify me since I refused to take a second look. Unfortunately, she used one of those quinine brands  in attempt to protect the baby. She sadly didn't check with me first.  I became miserable from all the itching like one who hugged devil's beans. I tried to rest as much as I could and thoroughly enjoyed both my family and ministry itinerary while being pampered like an egg. I preached passionately at the event I was invited to. I talked about loving God and serving him devotedly even when disa

GOD IS KIND: The Courage of patience

Read part 2 here It was a beautiful morning and yours truly was still bleeding.  I just got done making breakfast and was about to set the table when I felt an extra weight down there. I left the kitchen, washed my hands and sent it below while squatting. Men and brethren, see who fell off me.  The 1cm Fibroid they said I should be operated for A better view of the monster My husband and I gave thanks . God had delivered me early. I took these photos as proofs of his kindness and as reminders that He is still with and for me, regardless.  I became hopeful and patiently waited to conceive another. I can't deny  that I had several moments of sadness and weeping. My husband who wasn't moved by the situation became worried for my worry. He bought me things, took me out regularly and kept asking what he could do to make me happy. While I appreciated his efforts, they weren't enough to comfort my grieving soul. I had many, many days of sadness.   January went by, so did February.
