I'm a Nigerian who's spent the last 11 years in Small-town, USA loving Jesus and his people. Now for the next few years, I will be heading back to Lagos, where I grew up with my lovely wife and I will try to chronicle that experience.

I'm back!  Posted on 09/05/2014
I stopped blogging...I am not sure why. Maybe that isn't exactly true. It's been two years since I stopped blogging. Honestly, I haven't thought much about it. But I think the world has changed a lot in that time period. I...

Bring your parents to work day!  Posted on 03/22/2012
Actually that's what Amy and I are calling it. As I mentioned during my last post, my in-laws are in town to visit. It's been a pleasure having them around and I don't say this because I know they will read this but because...

The Curious Case of Tyson the Lonely Chicken  Posted on 03/13/2012
