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

IN THE WORDS OF JESUS...

It was the time of the passover. I had seen 32 passover feasts, during which my family and I, my disciples and I (When I began my public ministry), would slay the chosen lamb in honor of the father's ordinance.

In those 32 years, everytime we ate the passover lamb, I was reminded that someday I would be the lamb that was slain.

This 33rd year as I walked into Jerusalem on the 10th day of Nissan when the Lamb was to be chosen, I willingly gave myself as the lamb to be slain.


They hailed, called out to me hosanna meaning "Save Us". With every shout and scream, I was reminded of my purpose. The very reason I was born was to die for these and many to be saved.


Every voice, every stare, every palm tree, stirred in me a strong desire to accomplish my purpose. They thought they were asking me for political redemption but I knew they were asking me for total redemption.


That week, I had the most temptations of my life. My mind fought against the enemy as he tried so hard to mak…

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 on your marital journey, 
Comparison ✅Jealousy✅ impatience/Haste✅ Discouragement
Please don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that your current psychologically sick boyfriend who beats an…
