I never wanted to serve in the north or anywhere with some religious crisis history. All the talks and news of boko haram and the sorts got me so scared I was ready to forgo NYSC if it came to that. My mom did her best to work my posting to Ekiti or some western state. How I prayed it would work out. I got my call up. Plateau state!!! It seems the leg of all our connect put together still wasn’t long enough. I felt like my life had come to an end. Jos!! Bomb!!! My friend, Chioma, got posted to Plateau too and she seemed quite excited about it. She says it’s where the Nigerian Christian Corpers Fellowship headquarters is located. What the hell does that even mean?
Well, I’m here, with NCCF, visiting village to village and preaching the gospel and restoring hope. Wow! So far, it’s been the most beautiful and fulfilling 6 months of my life. What could be more fulfilling than putting a smile on people’s faces?
