I am a lover of reaching out and giving out. When I first heard about Africa Mercy – I was overly delighted. I couldn’t bring my human understanding to phantom how a group of individuals would leave their comfort zone and travel far and wide to give out help selflessly!
I got to read about their founders and was even more inspired. Having a child with autism didn’t limit The Stephens instead they are using their pain to cause a change for others…. I honestly wish they can come to Nigeria, it would be such a delight to work with them!

Bells were tolled in cities across the US and rang out 39 times – one for each of Dr. Luther’s years on Thursday, to mark the moment 50 years ago that civil rights leader Martin Luther King was gunned down by a white supremacist in Memphis, Tennessee. People gathered across the country and worldwide to honor the civil right icon.
On Tuesday night at Memphis’ Mason Temple Church of God in Christ, where he gave a speech the night before he was killed, Dr King’s daughter the Reverend Bernice King spoke about the difficulty of publicly grieving her father. On Wednesday evening’s Memphis event, one his sons, Martin Luther King III, said dramatic progress had been made in race relations, but America was nowhere near where it needed to be.
She told the audience: “One day we’ll all be able to join with Martin King and say ‘Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are all free at last'”.
Performers, activists, and faith leaders took to the stage and individuals gathered it was a form of re-commitment to nonviolent social change. One pastor told the crowd that this commemoration is not about yesterday or about sentimental dreams of the future, that today was about the present struggles. Carrying on King’s work, continuing his legacy has been the theme of the day with the central question, where do we go from here?

Just read an update from my friend Stanley. He scribbled down a powerful interview between two of my favorite women ever – Oprah and the late Maya Angelou, who happen to be his favorite too!
Really wish I could get the entire thing, but I’m not really a Spotify person but i can sacrifice and try to get it out and see if it’s possible to share from there. It really spoke to me and blessed me. Hope it does for you too. (PS: A bit long).
Oprah: I remember once being in your house and somebody was telling a joke. And you were on the other side of the house… we were at a party, it was very noisy. And the person made a joke and it was a racist, homophobic joke… and you stopped the party.
Maya Angelou: Mmm hmmm
Oprah: First of all, I couldn’t believe, I was like how could she hear that from all the way over there. But you stopped the party and asked the persons to excuse themselves and leave your house.

Lately I’ve been meeting awesome and amazing people, and it makes me excited. Why? I learn from them and deposit something too.
So I’ve been thinking who’s going to be our very first Blog Personality and then I happened to run into one of such great minds by name Austin Okoronkwo and I thought to myself what better way to start this new series than with someone as this. I decided to strike a conversation-led-interview with him, and this is what he had to say.

“I have one message: that Jesus Christ came, he died on a cross, he rose again, and he asked us to repent of our sins and receive him by faith as Lord and Savior, and if we do, we have forgiveness of all of our sins.” —Billy Graham
A forerunner and an evangelist at revival meetings, and on radio and television for over 40 years, born on November 7, 1918, in Charlotte, North Carolina, Billy Graham helped bind together a vulnerable nation through religious revival. By glazing over the finer details of Christianity and focusing on more moderate doctrines, Graham made evangelism enticing, non-threatening, even easy—and the media made his messages accessible to the masses.
