I recites these everyday to encourage myself.
YOU'LL NEVER BE BRAVE IF YOU DON'T GET HURT.YOU'LL NEVER LEARN IF YOU DON'T MAKE MISTAKES. YOU'LL NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL IF YOU DON'T ENCOUNTER FAILURE.
Some weeks ago when I took a giant step to serve humanity through the establishment of a new NGO,I thought the journey would be smooth all the way.But now I realized that there will be obstacles and sacrifices. Believe me when I say that where there's no STORY,no GLORY.
Initially when I started, I decided to first create an awareness to pupils then organized a rally on domestic violence which failed due to a challenge I faced (which was the first challenge). My six months old baby was hospitalized and diagnosed of sickle cell anaemia. Hmmmm.........I became devastated. Those that earlier on said I cannot do it were happy.They started mocking me.Saying how can a poor rat feed another rat???
I cried and started believing in what they were saying.After all the doctor said my sickle cell anaemia baby needs our full attention with the little resources we have.I almost gave up but God used sister Florence Kekong to lift me up.
She said I should mobilise the widows around my area to see how we can empower/encourage them during the 23rd June International widows day.So I did. I was able to hear some of their stories and the pains they pass through just to make ends meet.
On the 23rd June that we planned to meet with Sister Florence Kekong in Nasarawa State of Nigeria failed due to the farmers/Headsman clashes that erupted in Plateau state of Nigeria. God made me to escape death that day. I failed again..........I became a liar and a laughing stock again.........But I will keep moving.I believe that there will be LIGHT after the TUNNEL.
My sister's, you can't believe that my landlord made me to evacuate my things from his house just because I wanted to help a widow next door that was frustrated because of a pathway land she needed.(I will tell you her full story soon).
Now, the women and children displaced in different camps during the clashes needs all the support from all of us. The 6 measures of rice I cooked for them was just like a measure. The children rushed it.I want to do more for them, but I cannot do it all alone.
I LOVE YOU ALL
