Adventure of faith #3

So we were at this place called Value Village yesterday on our off-day (a place that sells second hand items ranging from clothes and books, to board games and household items), and I was in the books section searching for interesting titles that I could buy back home.

I noticed there were many books of Justin Bieber up for sale… No points given to figure out why.

Adventure of faith #2

Let me be that gust of wind…

That changes the direction of the falling leaves
That moves waters to foreign lands
That persuades fallen flowers to take flight

Let me be that plow in the soil…

That turns aside the harden ground
That prepares them roots to grow deep within
That with every prayer hearts will change

Hi everyone! It’s finally Easter Sunday! 

Spring is supposed to officially be here but it snowed for two days sometime this week and the residents were getting slightly impatient with the weather haha. But two ladies decided to make the most of it and they made a snow bunny! β„οΈπŸ°β„οΈ We all HAD to stop to take a photo with it! I was really impressed with the details like the nose and the buck teeth, it was a quite a work of art πŸ‘

Landscapes and skies from the window, beautiful ain’t it?

Pastor Bob and his wife, Karen, invited us over to have an Easter dinner with their family. It was such a blessing to be able to get to know that wonderful family better. 


This is what was being served for dinner (clockwise from the top): salad with strawberries and pecan, kugel, steamed corn, ihavenoideawhatsthat, turkey with mandatory cranberry jam and sauce, sweet potato and carrot mash, and baked potatoes nested in the center of the plate. 


I’m so full my stomach is bursting πŸ˜…

Adventure of faith #1

I like what I see and feel here in canada. While driving on the road you can see wide open spaces, and when you look from left to right you can see the curvature of the earth. Cause there’s nothing in the distant that’s blocking your sight.

I can see the greatness of God here being manifested in nature and I see His magnificence in the vastness of the sky and land, in the forests and the rivers. In the snow, in the dried and withered grass, in the bare branches of the many spruce and birch trees. I see Him in the contours of the hills and slopes. In the distant farms with horses and cows grazing the fields. I see most of these from the car that I travel in, and although I’m no where close to touching these landscapes, I’m already so overwhelmed. Everything is so beautiful, even from a distance. I see God when the wind catches the snowflakes and cause them to dance around the houses, falling on my hair and nose and eyelashes. Then in that moment, I feel so close with my creator. It’s as if I touched the face of God. And in all this I’m humbled once again, that He would call me His child and friend.

I feel so thankful to be here. There’s an increase in emotion and sensitivity. Not in a bad way y’know; like I cry every other day and stuff, but in a way that I can sense God everywhere here and hear Him.

When I’m doing evangelism in quiet neighbourhoods I also see Him in the empty streets, and I find Him in the silence. I have seen His beauty, but not in it’s fullness just yet.. I think He is just revealing this part of Himself to me.

The most exciting part is I’ve only been here for just about a month. And there are two more months to go! I wonder how much more I’ll discover and learn here.

The past seems like a figment of my imagination, and the present feels like a dream. 


It’s almost hard to believe I was in Nigeria four years ago, and all that happened in between till now. It seems as though all that time could be condensed into one second. So now that I’m here in Canada, I’m truly taking in every moment. Cause I feel all these emotions and experiences could disappear and be forgotten as I travel through my journey in life.

It is supposed to be spring now, but I haven’t actually gotten bored with the winter just yet so I’m okay with it πŸ˜€ 

Yesterday after a dinner I went for a walk alone around the neighbourhood. It was very pleasant and therapeutic to do so. I went through two small park areas. Very little people were out tho, must have been too cold or people were probably having dinner. 

People here are friendly and obliging when we knock on doors, but very few are actually open to us. But we actually find evangelism enjoyable now. I keep on expecting God to do something through me every time I knock on a new door.

No Monday blues cause it’s off day todayyyyy :))))) we visited a few places and I’m home with a few purchases. I’m mostly happy with a good pair of boots that I found from a second hand store! Perfect for keeping my feet warm in the snow for now and also for future hiking adventures :)

I am so ready for another adventure with God. It’s like another chapter is unfolding! Over the past few weeks I have experienced His favour towards me through people. Friends and family have blessed me above and beyond for this trip. More than half of my belongings are given or loaned to me! I’m excited about the people and environment that God will bring me to in Beaumont. 

So… till next time ;) see you in three month Singapore!

Thirteen more hours and counting.

I’m waiting for my last batch of laundry to be done so I can hang them up. Surprisingly, I feel sleepy. I thought I would be all jumpy and excited and awake the entire night but it looks like I would be able to sleep quite well. Yay haha. Looking forward to a good nights rest.

This post goes out to my mother who i don’t show as much appreciation as I probably should. She has always been supporting my family by putting aside her own wants and needs. I am truly blessed to have her in my life and I am sure many others who know her would say the same! 

I appreciate everything you do for me (us) Mommy! I love you very very much 😘
