The first month of 2017 was indeed a blessed month; though there were some challenges during the month it was by your prayers and support we made it to the end of the month successfully. We are so grateful to the Lord for His blessing upon our lives enabling us to be of service to our own country men who are the least among the brethren.
The news of CHAP International's new office location spread wide and there was always a flow of people coming to us from the new community with their plights.
There are no jobs, the youth are all out on the street, drugs are taking over the youth, as well as armed-robbery increasing in the society, and children on the street are begging and some are selling, asked to be bread-winners for their family.
Also the elderly people, widows, are running on the street begging and starvation is killing them. The most annoying thing in all these happenings is that the sitting government is not doing anything about it. I spoke to many young people and some adults who regularly visit the political party compounds because they are given a meal a day there. But once the election comes and a party wins or loses, the political party leadership will not cook food for any of these people, nor create any program for their sustainability. It has become one of our prayer requests, for God’s intervention for a better change in Jesus Name.
