She wrote; “BOUGHT My (2nd)second home in Lagos Nigeria ??this year has been so good to me and I am so Greatful to God “Every good/perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights James 1:17 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Phil 4:6
This request I made known to God since 2012 I cried,Prayed and worked for it many jobs since 15 from hawking pure water,sale girl,ogaTaxi driver,waitress in Lagos/Dubai restaurant etc……..As a child my Mum struggle in her store day and night just to feed my family,I barely even saw my Dad he had a job as a Driver faraway from our home in Ajegunle so he leaves home before I wake up. Being raised this way i do say we were fortunate we had a home until we couldn’t pay rent my mothers store in the market became our home where she sells frozen Chicken!
