Tales of LIFE In Nigeria

In about three months, a family friend, Corrin, and her husband Cliff, will be moving to Yola, Nigeria for three years. Corrin has a huge heart for people and shows this love tangibly through many means whether it be visiting her friends, writing letters or giving gifts...she loves people well and I know will exude this same love to those she and Cliff get to know in Nigeria.

Recently, she drew my attention to a blog she has begun to chronicle this upcoming new beginning in their lives. May I encourage you to visit Tales of LIFE In Nigeria. It’s one of those blogs that through its very purpose transcends the every day and opens you up to a whole world that is out there…that which is not North America, the Middle East or Europe. It’s Africa…the second largest continent on earth yet seemingly the least regarded.

A few interesting tidbits from the blog:

  1. Unicef recently placed Nigeria as #2 on the Maternal Mortality Ratio, one placement below India.
  2. Nigeria is the fifth largest foreign supplier of oil to the United States.
  3. Today Nigeria celebrates 10 years of democracy.

For more interesting facts, beautiful pictures and thoughtful reflections, please click on one of the many links I have provided!:)
