Dear Single Girl

Dear single girl, I write this with the hope that you will take time to read this and take it all in. I write this because I wish I read a piece like this before I took the marriage plunge. I write this because I want you to know what it is like, to walk in my shoes. My story won’t resonate with everyone, but I have to tell it. It is MY story and I have been wondering if I really want to share. However, I met a single lady about to get married soon. As I heard her talk, I knew...I just had to write this! I was 31 and not in a rush. I had just gotten out of a 7-year relationship and I was not in the mood. I met this " big boy " who had everything going for him...His own flourishing business, a brand new SUV, super-intelligent, and spoke very good English. But what really got me was how he wanted to be with me most of the time, and how he tried so hard to accommodate my party ways. He normally wouldn’t go to a club, but one day I was going with my friends like I usual


Little Arewa The Arewa family sure have a new song to sing. But for the mercy of God,  the entire family would have been wiped out.  The hymn Saved, Saved by Jack P. Scholfield seems an appropriate everyday song.  I’ve found a Friend, who is all to me, His love is ever true; I love to tell how He lifted me And what His grace can do for you. Refrain: Saved by His pow’r divine, Saved to new life sublime! Life now is sweet and my joy is complete, For I’m saved, saved, saved! He saves me from every sin and harm, Secures my soul each day; I’m leaning strong on His mighty arm; I know He’ll guide me all the way. Mother and surviving child in the hospital Tina Arewa's family was attacked in Nandu Village by Fulani Herdsmen March 16 2019. On sighting the evil men, she asked her children to run to safety. In escaping from the invaders she  took a bullet to her chest and  played dead with her surviving son.  That night she  lost her 5 month old,  5 year old and  9 year old.

Arise, this matter belongs to you

Nandu, Southern Kaduna : Homes Still In Ruins  It's been almost 6 months that night marauders invaded Nandu village in Southern Kaduna Nigeria. That fateful weekend, I woke up to disturbing news from Nigeria: JOS, Nigeria (Morning Star News) – Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed 10 Christians in Southern Kaduna state, Nigeria on Saturday (March 16), bringing the lives lost in the past five weeks to 140 with 160 houses destroyed, sources said. “We were all asleep in our various homes when at about 4 a.m. [Saturday], we heard gunshots everywhere in my village,” Amos Samuel, 40, of Nandu Gbok village in Sanga County told Morning Star News. “Everyone ran out of their homes to escape from the Fulani herdsmen. Three hours after the herdsmen left, those of us who survived the attack returned to the village to find that our houses were destroyed and 10 of our villagers killed.” About 30 houses were burned in the attack, Sanga chairman Charles Danladi told Morning Star News, who also
