LETTER FROM PAPA
Ada m ji eri eku, did you attend mass today? Oh please! I will always be daddy, so I won’t stop asking. Besides, your relationship with God has to keep growing stronger. However, I hope you can smell the great expectations of the new week. Well, I can smell the great things coming forth and also the “Ofe Akwu” your mother just made. I better go ahead with my message today.
Ada m, it takes two “Cs” to venture into new areas of endeavours and more of it to invent new things. Courage and Confidence! It is always so rosy until the other “C” pops up. Challenges! That “C” is inevitable but conquerable, it shouldn’t be your weakness but your strength. When you believe in yourself, when you are aware of that thing in you which the society awaits and when you take a pip to Paul’s message to the Philippians ( 4:13); “I can do all things through Christ that strengthen me”, you will see the Challenges as raw materials for your lifting. Never dodge from them or they will overcome you. Confront them and you will conquer.
Ada bekee m, look around you, discover more of you and see the place for you. Go and put your feet there and in no time, you will take root downwards and begin to spread your branches all over. Branches that will bear good fruit for the society. Don’t let challenges stop you, be Courageous and Confident.
Chukwu gozie gi, Ada m huru n’anya.
