Reflexiones de Moises; Nigeria Blog Five, Second Orphanage

Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off on Reflexiones de Moises; Nigeria Blog Five, Second Orphanage

On Tuesday, March 18, 2014, God blessed our team in a magnificent way. Ntoro Nkanta brought us to his village where he was a teacher at the orphanage. When we arrived at the “second” orphanage, Ntoro’s family greeted us and gave us a wonderful tour of their home. We felt so loved and trusted. It reminded us of why were here. They showed us their Palm Oil Presses, banana and plantain trees, the children homes, and made us feel very welcome and safe. This was a huge relief. After the tour, they invited us to the school where the children sang songs for us and recited memory bible verses. It...

On Monday, March 17, 2014, we got off to a rough start. We were supposed to be picked up at 8:00 am at the EEMJM Hotel to begin visiting orphanages. Nobody arrived.

After lunch, about 2:00 pm, our host arrived and we supposedly were headed to the first orphanage. However, the next thing we knew we arrived at a University or some kind of government building. (We think. We never knew quite where we were.)...

Curt Mader, Nancy Allen, and I have returned from Nigeria. We accomplished our objectives but I must say, “We are very glad to be home”. We visited two orphanages. One in particular would be a wonderful place to install a water system. It was managed by Ntoro Nkanta; Ikponke’s brother. It was wonderful, and God honored, to see what Ntoro was doing with these children. They had about 100 children ranging in age from babies to young adults. They were joyous to receive our six fully packed suitcases of supplies. Everyone received their own toothbrush and they were passing out underwear, books,...
