JTOW GOES TO IFESOWAPO, MILE 12




5 years gone, wow!!!
We have been to Ajegunle,AmukokoMakoko, Ilaje-Bariga providing supplies for thousands of people and ministering the essence of Christ and life to them.


See the interesting story of how it all began here


On this 5th outreach, we are going to Isokan Ifesowapo Community in Mile 12, Lagos
💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃


Ifesowapo was formely known as part of a popular slum called Alaba in Mile 12.   They carved their niche as an independent community lately.



Our JTOW director, Miracle Obiorah and representative Mercy Enamidue were at Ifesowapo recently. They were not allowed to take pictures and so we sadly cannot give you a graphical representation of the community at this time.


However, we have the gist of the area as described by Eric Dumo on punch.



"It is a conglomeration of sinking and elevated structures constructed with wood and rusty roofing sheets, Alaba – with a bulging population of over 3000 residents – is where deprivation meets chequered opportunities. 



Floored by a mixture of refuse and marshy mud, the area is home to dozens of low income earning families especially women – old and young – seeking financial liberation.


The neighbourhood also houses an army of youths and little children whose future grows in uncertainty by the minute as a result of the high wave of crime in the vicinity. Day or night, sun or rain – the area never sleeps.


Besides contending with a host of diseases as a result of the filthy nature of the environment, the foul smell oozing out of the mosquito-infested swamp in the area further compounds the pains of many dwellers."

How we choose our outreach destinations aka OUR FAVOURITE PLACES
-----------------------------------
JTOW OUTREACH 2018 LOCATION, ILAJE BARIGA, LAGOS


We love to go wherever there is a need for physical supplies and the love of Christ, particularly  communities or nations with
•Poor living condition
• High mortality rate
•Poor access to Education
•Low believing or non-Christian population
•Unreached

Considering the poor living condition of the people, slum environment and a higher number of residents being  non-christians, Ifesowapo community is clearly one of our favourite places.

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.
