“For me to live is Christ and to die [in Him] is gain” (Phil. 1:21) are words that call me to no longer live for myself but to let Jesus’s life increase in me and be reflected through me, a weak clay vessel. Born in Umudim, a small town in Imo State of Nigeria, I met my spouse, Dolapo, in north central Nigeria during our cross-cultural missions training. We both have served cross-culturally in West and North Africa and we have two young adult sons. I am a soccer fan.
