i am currently in Nigeria to visit my mum (who is 70yrs old) and i am happy to be with her but that is where the hapiness ends. This is because i have returned to find out that things are worse than i left it.The road to my home is constantly flooded, there is skeletal electricity, my mum and i queud for hours on end to get fuel on Sunday and we arrived late to church. As soon as we got there, we heard the clergyman praying for God to protect members of the congregation from kidnappers and assassins.What a holiday it has been.

LIFE IS HARD MY SISTER

Dear,

A socialite was murdered in church during mass last week. God is still saving people like us my sister, we work, walk and sleep in fear, the country is so hard and everyone has turned to the evil way, I thought meldown will not affect us because we have always being poor but now I feel it badly and my heart weeps for the people I loved so much.

ATIMES I THINK IT IS A CURSE TO BE A NIGERIAN. I love Nigeria with the whole of my heart, I will try to endure, it is for a time.

God Bless Nigerians and continue to pray for us.

Sustaining communication

Efe,

I was drawn to your post and have to admit I don't know the ins and outs of what is going on in Ghana. Could you inform us with some basic facts. While I sit at my computer in my home office, I am reading and learning on World Pulse more than I could on the nightly news. Really this is an important way to commit myself to the wider world, will you help me
to see your country through your eyes?

I wonder what has come of your "Friends Forever" group? I think you are creating your week 5, week 6 by continuing to post. Does it feel that way?

Warmly,

Laura

The world problems go on, eh?

The world problems go on, eh? I hope you and your mother weren't too inconvenienced. This goes to show just how much work we all have to do to get things right and working. It's a problem we are still trying to solve.

The good thing about being a Nigerian is that you learn to adapt to any situation. Im cool!
