Camping Out!!!

Posted on Updated on

Missed me? Sorry I haven’t been constant on here. Been busy and away. Speaking of Away, I was at the border between Nigeria and Benin Republic, in a village called Imeko Idose in Nigeria. It was a missionary attempt and I can tell you it went really well.

The locals were welcoming, the sights were great, the large expanse of land was captivating, the excesses of cashew trees awed me, and also the peacefulness of the surroundings. Tasted what rural life meant, really.

I wouldn’t tease you with such a story and not post you pictures. 😀 . I think I have your attention now. But forgive me if you find the pics of low quality. Smartphones were down on battery and we had no source to recharge, so I settled for a low pixel camera which I think pretty much did the job. See for yourselves…

And that’s a wrap. That’s all I got from my mobile. Might update when I get more from other sources. That was just the picture summary of my three-day missionary trip to Imeko Idose. Now back in my homezone. I hope you like it.

[PS : I apologise if I look bad in the pictures X_X . The village was without water, and we all couldn’t have a bath]
