Pictures - Nigeria


Gender prejudice is very real in Nigeria, the most populous nation in Africa. Although Nigerian women are very strong, they suffer in many ways because of a low view of women in the culture. Widows are often mistreated. Domestic violence is common. In many villages, families actually have a public mourning if a girl is born! In one isolated tribe, women who get married must have their front teeth broken out to show that they are no longer single.

I have traveled to Nigeria eight times since my first visit in 2001. I have preached in Lagos, Abuja, Akure, Kaduna and Port Harcourt. I love all things Nigerian, including the food (especially moin-moin and jollaf rice!) and the wonderful worship. And in 2008 I was blessed to receive from my hosts my very own Yoruba name, "Akinwale," which means, "The warrior has come home."
