In 2011, our family, Mom, Dad and 6 children (ages 4 to 18) left our comfy, stable life in Houston, TX and moved to Lagos, Nigeria. There are many posts about our experiences in Lagos, exploring parts of Nigeria and the places we have visited outside of Nigeria.

I'm a Nigerian who's spent the last 11 years in Small-town, USA loving Jesus and his people. Now for the next few years, I will be heading back to Lagos, where I grew up with my lovely wife and I will try to chronicle that experience.
