FYI-A peaceful protest has been scheduled to the Govt house in PH !
thats good news
I don't know the name but i will try to find out from someone.
A peaceful demonstration to the RSG is a good place to start. This is a wake up call to all of us Nigerians. Although the buck stops at OBJ's table, we all have a role to play in the dev of that country. Next time you see a corrupt Governor, senator, minister, etc or their equally corrupt kids, we should treat them like the diseased minds that they are for the wealth they steal and siphon abroad affects us all. We must hold these ppl accountable for true power belongs to the people. Imagine if all these mothers whose kids died and the students of Loyola who lost friends going to the mininster of aviaton's office and asking for his resignation, demanding for a thorough investigation and get everyone responsible accountable! We must stop this apathy to govt, we must all be involved. Throw pure water at a thieving gov instead of red carpet, make life as miserable for them as it is for us....The power belongs to us, the people.
I have a feeling God is about to do something GREAT in Nigeria but unfortunately I feel more bad news will come before the good starts coming! I don't know why but I keep seeing an image of a beautiful Naija by 2010 but I didn't take it seriously. Now I wonder if God's plan is not to give us a new nation soon. The cries of the innocent have reached his ears. It shall be well.
BIG AMEN SISTER!!!!!
amen amen sis!Agreeing with you in prayer!
true talk ma sister
Imagine --- that u are the mother of the three children who died...http://www.thisdayonline.com/nview.php?id=35685
Actually when I heard this gist I was hesitant to check the manifest beacuse I reside in Port-harcourt and for those of us who have lived there PH is like a small town and a big city - people especially those of the oil interest tend to know one another, so imagine sunday night when I reluctantly decided to check the manifest on Thisday and saw passenger#94, I got serious chills and goose bumps, called my folks who confirmed that indeed my uncle's son was on that flight.
Pasto Bimbo Odukoya was here in Houston just three weeks ago, I could not make her saturday ministration but was watching the DVD recording that very saturday when the crash occured...
MAY THEIR GENTLE SOULS REST PEACEFULLY IN THE BOSOM OF OUR CREATOR! AMEN!
On a serious note! Where will this lady start from? She lost everything she actually lived for? I mean gosh am kinda lost of words men! Where will she start what will she do? Can she even still live like a human being? JEsus...
seriously, my heart grieves for this woman. imagine the first day home by herself? after everyone has gone back to their respective places, imagine that day? kai, i don't even know what to pray for her? che na strength or peace or what? aiye pari ma ni yen? omo meta? three children? where do u start from?
My dear sister it is that time u will understand that story of the footprints in the sand...the lord will carry her through this unimaginable event in her life !!
Now I understand why some families dont travel together . Husband and wife fly different planes etc I know a lot of people that do that.To avoid a whole family being wiped out !!
I feel you....I really do.. We have to start from somewhere.. and the most important is healthcare and education.. Like building a nursing facility in all states to train nurses and the other health professionals. .. Its really a sad state in Nigeria..
There's a famous author...she wrote a book and i've seen her talk on TV...abt when her husband and kids died...in an accident...A drunk driver accident..and the drunk driver didnt die....thats how she met God..and all. there's always a good in all bad...better said than done, i know, but still.. It's just like Job!! He lost everything..his kids...houses, animals...everything..
I remember when my mom's friend lost her daughter. She said at first she did not know how she was ever going to make it. Her only child dead and her husband no more either. But with "time" she got thru the pain. This is a time when her real friends will be there for her. Somehow, she will get thru it. Insa-Allah!
The name of the book is His Beauty for my Ashes
I have the movie and a lot of her books she visited Redeemed once to preach !!
Yep, thats her...Very Inspirational..The lady that just lost her kids needs to surround herself with family and pple who have experienced such things...it helps to know u are not the only one who feels that kind of pain..
I know samira but just imagine na! Haba, I would seriously question the Lord what I did him to take my kids away from me! NOt only one o all the 3 of them! Jesus ...I can't even think of something like that! We always pray NOT to know the end of our kids. I just hope she was not at the aiport when the plane crashed and they did not have enough water to quench the fire! It is horrible, seriously my mom was like, there is nothing to live for more. Where is she going to start, that's actually what goes trough my mind. How long will such wound get healed? How will you feel when you get home and that noisy house is now silent? The pains you felt when you went trough labour and the joy you had having them in your arms and seeing this small precious creature? Now knowing that the house is silent and no one will be calling mummmy mummy all over the house? Chai, may God never strike us with such kind of calamity! It is even a wonder that he has not run mad yet!
Exactly my point na! I mean sure she will live and everything happens for a reason but haba 3 at a time! As i have said before, we pray not to know the end of our kids, now that everything you labourd and worked for is gone withtin one day?? You really ask yaself what you did wrong? Where did it go wrong? Really....who do you wanna blame? Is it God or those that let the plane even take off?help: ..I just wonder what this world is turning to, seriously...
Bolanle, learning how to handle life's problems with the right attitude is our first step in overcoming them. If we choose to blame God or question him for our problems then we will remain very unhappy and very bitter. All we can do at sad times like this is to trust in God to help us thru. Much of the New Testament deals with crises. Several letters (epistles) were written specifically to deal with problems like death, sickness and so on. The key to handling our problems is learning to trust what God tells us to do about them. Reading the Bible and if a Muslim, the Koran helps greatly in times like this.
