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

HOW TO SPOT A GOOD MAN

Last night at Insure your marriage  online conference, I was privileged to teach on the subject, Good men are hard to find. Is that  true? Destroying the myths and lies that make women settle for less than God's best. This post is a copy of what I shared with them. I did a different post for a meaty part of the Q and A.  Check it out. Once you are done with this.  Let's Define God's best God's best in marriage is a spouse and a situation that sets you up for growth  in these areas 👉Spiritual 👉Financial 👉Emotional 👉Relational The term set up means it may not be in the "package" that you expect because it is first committed to helping you mature into God's picture of you,  than it is about making you feel fly. If you truly understand this, you will be delivered from these o n your marital journey,  ✅ Comparison  ✅Jealousy ✅ impatience/Haste ✅ Discouragement Please don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that your current psychologically sick b

WISE COUNSEL TO QUESTIONS SINGLES ASK - PART 1

The difference between being at peace in a relationship and having your heart troubled till you can't breathe is in the counsel you heed to. I've seen beautiful relationships even marriages crumble because  one or both of them listened to a "thus says the Lord, that's not your husband/wife".  While I believe that God leads us in the area of marriage, He doesn't expressly tell everyone who to marry. There are some people he told.  However, he has placed wisdom pillars on our path to help make the right decisions. The questions below are asked by real people I have  met on my ministry journey.  I will keep adding to it as I find the time to write here.  For now, I hope these ones would help hold the torch as you search the truth for your specific situation. Question 1   If you have someone coming to you for a relationship who takes alcohol like one or two bottles, doesn't get drunk on it and says he is a Christian. Can this person be classified as a good Chr

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Social media has always been there; but not everyone paid close attention or saw the need to set up a profile for themselves or their businesses.   With COVID-19 radically obstructing the norm, more individuals and businesses have woken up to the necessity of having a social media profile.  I believe you have been woke for a very long time or perhaps you are just waking up. Either way, congratulations!!! Perhaps you got on board and  realised that it is not as easy as people make it seem.  You wonder how to successfully handle your social media pages to correctly represent your personality and opinion as an individual.  You have barely figured out how to use Facebook to successfully promote your business, only to hear people say Instagram is the best marketing platform and you are confused. You barely find time to post because your actual life or business routine is too full You hear about the many social media platforms- google+, Pinterest, Linkedin, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Perisco
