"Past the seeker as he prayed, came the crippled and the beggar and the beaten. And seeing them...he cried, "Great God, how is it that a loving creator can see such things and yet do nothing about them?" God said, "I did something I made you."

AS I WALK AND LIVE AMONG THESE "FORGOTTEN" AND OPPRESSED PEOPLE OF IGBOLAND. THERE IS SEVERE POVERTY AND GRAVE SUFFERING. THERE IS SCANT RESOURCES AND CONT-AMINATED WATER. THERE IS IMMENSE HUNGER/ MALNUTRITION AND DEADLY DISEASES. THERE IS A HIGH BIRTH RATE AND A HIGH MORTALITY RATE. THERE IS THE THE CRY OF THE POOR, AND YET THERE IS SOMETHING BEYOND WHAT THE HUMAN EYE AND EAR CAN PERCEIVE WALKING WITH THESE PEOPLE. IT IS A "FELT-SENSE", IT IS THEIR JOY. IT IS THEIR WILL TO LIVE AND PERSEVERE, DESPITE ALL ODDS. IT IS THEIR CELEBRATION OF LIFE. IT IS THEIR CELEBRATION OF DEATH. IT IS THEIR "RICHNESS" OF FAITH. IT IS THEIR "SPIRIT" "THE SPIRIT OF GOD". I AM HUMBLED, I AM BROUGHT TO MY KNEES FOR TRULY I AM ON "HOLY GROUND". AMEN
Ozioma of Igboland
