Worldpulse: My Amazing family

Joshua Oyedele
Posted October 4, 2021 from Nigeria

It has been a while I raised my voice here. It's good to be back here, the love and support from this great family is amazing and stunning, I was away for some reasons and I have had an encounter with many encouragers from here which includes JoMarieB Earth, Jill Langhus-Griffin, Busayo owojori-Obisakin, Bashuda Modak, among others, it really gives me a sense of belonging, knowing that I have a shoulder to lean on. This is a sure way to build an encourager.  During my break I have been able to reach out to many youths in my host community, it was an amazing experience teaching them how to convert waste to beautiful, sustainable, Eco-friendly handmade products. 

My works were featured on two news platforms online. You can check them using this link: https://focus-nigeria.com/exclusive-see-how-ibadan-born-corp-member-in-c...

Hi brother Joshua and welcome back indeed! Thank you for your story.
You have taken the youth under your wings - wonderful! This is an initiative that will always live with them. Thank you for the links. In the first article you said you were looking for a problem to solve. This is so humbling! And I love the fact that you helped the youth to acquire skills by using recycled items. All the best for the future Joshua. You are changing lives.

Dear Joshua,
It is important to leave the "nest" of people that you get support and encouragement from. Because it gives you a chance to spread your wings. To test yourself with what you have received. When people support and encourage you, it gives you the tools to help others on your journey. Keep doing what you are doing. Because I'm sure it brings joy to everyone.
Bravo to you! JoMarie
