  • Have you been in a scary dream?
    You are so frighten that you want to wake up, but you don't,
    you want to scream but you can't open your mouth
    you want to reach out to your partner but your arm can't move

    You pray to heaven for a rescue
    You cry for help
    You seek in vain for a way out

    Well I have been in that situation in real life

    Here is the conversation I had with God:

    "God, if you are listening to my prayers, please get me out of here"
    No response

    Years past by as I get by

    one morning I woke up and realized that all these years I was sending the wrong request.

    "God, what do you want me to learn through this?"


    7 years later, I left the Republic of Congo.

    In retrospective, I recognize that I needed to be there so I can be who I am today.

    As painful as it was, it shaped my character and made me a better person.

    My brother told one day that those 7 years were the best years of his life.

    I agree with him.

    You have to dig deeper for a strong foundation.
