I remember: A Post Shared By Tosin

"In December 2012...I remember meeting this young lady in DLCC for the first time. She helped me with my bag and luggages...:*winks* She really was so kind. Then we got talking...and, during our discussion she explained how she's been out of High school for some months because mama couldn't afford the fee...anymore. She was in SSS 3. The suggested option for her was to get married to this supposedly 'prescribed' RICH MAN by her mum, but she wouldn't want any of this. She wanted to go back to school.

It was a 'tug' of war between her and her mum. Eventually, we made our visit, and enrolled her in one of the Private High Schools for the 2013 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination/WASSCE. She Passed Her Exams...!


This morning, it is so sweet to read from her after such a long silence.. She's gained admission to study Theatre Art at the Lagos State University. She wrote in: "Thanks for helping me when all hope was lost".


DLCC is such a big place filled with thousands of young people...but, why Martha? The fact is that God truly has a way of ordering our steps... And, it doesn't matter where you are at. He sees you, He knows your need. I could affirm with what she says this morning..."God has a plan". 
Huge Thanks to all our friends and sponsors.

Happy New Year.!

She was only 7+years old.
She fell ill 2weeks ago.
Maybe, for lack of hospital in the community.
Maybe, for lack of adequate knowledge.
The parent resolved into spiritual intervention.
It must be a spiritual attack.
Mary couldn't move again.
Yesterday, Mary died in the church.
Where her parent had taken her to.
Today, I crrrriiieeed. Still tear-dropping.
I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.

Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…

Thank You.
