TALES FROM THE GHETTOS..

# SERIES  1

I stepped out of the rickety van that drove me to Watanga. After highlighting, I stood still as time flew past by me. I could hear the flaps of it’s wings as it flew by. Then I decided to move as I heard the van zoom off into the streets. I am a missionary to this part of humanity.
As I walked the streets, I felt the death and warmth of a stenchy atmosphere. The buildings we’re closely arranged in a way no car could enter in except for the major streets.
Trying to locate a room where I can stay for the duration of my work, when I heard screams from a nearby wall. Startled, I decided to brave in and have a sight, and as a missionary render help. But as I approached, I heard gunshots and a loud scream then a silence…
Wow! I stopped on my tracks and felt a great burden drop on my heart.. then MY LOVER whispered “beloved you have to be fast, A soul has just been lost”.
With sadness, grief and sheer heaviness. I turned to leave but was interrupted by the heavy puffs of marijuana projected towards me, which made me cough out dryly. There stood a young boy with a red eye, and a big brown wrapped up marijuana in his mouth staring at me. Oh! I saw the plea in his eyes, Joshua Warren, a 9 year old was in addiction.
My bags dropped, I couldn’t contain myself.
I began sobbing in front of this boy. Just as I was about to speak to the boy, I heard a feminine voice “sorra mista, pleash who you?”
A brown toothed mother to Joshua spoke up.
“I’m Joshua Tommy, I came in some few hours ago, I wanted a place to stay for some days”.
I spoke amidst the tears in my eyes. “Ok, how much you pay?” She queried, “$300.” I replied.
“Follow me”…..she barked at me.
As we walked along , we arrived at a place called THE CHURCH OF HELL. An artistic decoration on the title showed pastors in sensual affairs with little girls. I was perplexed. As we moved in, passing through a corridor, oh God! Girls of about 9,10,11,-18 years were offering themselves to clergies, etc for gruesome sex. I almost fainted on the sights.
What a world.
But I pictured a girl by the Corner of a room, all alone and Dejected, then I knew……….
I knew I had work to do, I knew, the whole body of Christ must rise up and save the lost.
“Hey! Mista, here’s your dunghole”.. Susa, Joshua Warrens mother yelled out. Startled, I cleared my throat and offered gratitude. She disappeared into the next room. “BELOVED, Go down and speak to that soul by the wall” the LOVER OF SOULS prompted.
Immediately, I rose up, picked up a blue Rose I hid in my bag, with my Bible, I headed straight down to meet the girl I saw sitting by the wall.
“Hey pretty, good afternoon” she jerked in fright and I saw pain oh! Horrible pain, dark pain, anguish, oh! I saw her lost in her own world, she was already feeling the heat of damnation, she was consumed by grief, despair, destitution, this girl was dying slowly, she was on her way to HELL.
Then the HOLYSPIRIT wept, I could feel him weep, one drop of tears dropped on my heart, and oh! I felt the pain, I felt the heat of the his Love, I felt his desperation. Amidst the tears THE LOVER OF SOULS SAID “This is the one I created in my own image, in my likeness, oh! Joshua tell her about me, I want to embrace her”
In His words I talked to her about Jesus, and in a giffy, the room was filled with similar looking girls , including Susa and Joshua. All were on thier faces in tears, As the HOLYSPIRIT took over.
As we finished, Joy sprang up in thier heart as they began to sing for Joy……
But I the missionary, my heart and mind, we’re weeping, why?….you may ask,
Not for Joy, but for pity FOR THE CHURCH.
THEN THE SPIRIT SAID,
(composed song)
©Joshua Tom
There is a people, a group by the wall
A girl, a boy, a woman with no hope at all
There’s a family bowed in pains
Oh bound by the devil’s chains.
There’s darkness in a neighborhood
Heavy tears, wails, screams and none to soothe
There’s a dying boy, lost in sin
Would you go and rescue the ones I Love?
# slavewiththebeautifulfeet .
Dear Reader . Rise up
Souls are dying,
Men are crying
Won’t you lead them to the cross,
Do not allow this song to stand against you on the LAST DAY

Daily Prompt: Retreat

 

IT IS TIME TO LOOK BACK

It has been a really busy year for me.

Looking back from the beginning of this year i realize i started the year excited, hopeful, expecting, anticipating and all. As January ended my i was discouraged and down as things did not work out as i expected it to work out.Then came February, March and June and things started working out well and even better than expected. In those few months i thought….

RETREAT

Hey 🙂 life is good when you’re with God cause he got your back. Then came July the long awaited  month, lol … this was the month i was going to go for service FINALLY, though the excitement had long waned i still had to go so i went

The camping experience was wonderful and i enjoyed it, but it was soon over before i blinked my eyes and i was posted to my place of primary assignment. With each passing day i learnt a new thing, my wisdom boat expanded and the pains and troubles i encountered only stayed to re-shape and mold me re-branding me into a STRONGER individual.

HAVING FUN WITH FRIENDS

In the few months past i met great minds that contributed to my development and i am for ever grateful to them. No matter how little their contribution maybe  i am grateful.

In all i am grateful to God for his love and presence, though sometimes it felt distance but i know in those moment of silence he was teaching me to learn to listen to him no matter how crowded my head or environment was. It was your arms that shielded me from the devourer and his armies.

Sitting now to recount how my year has been so for, i have come to know that within this past one year i have grown a great deal. I have added years and knowledge that i couldn’t acquire in 4 years . I have learnt new things and today i stand tall to say i am wiser and more knowledgeable than i have been  in all my years since i reached the age of accountability.

My Sunday Adventure.

Yesterday was a beautiful day for me after a wonderful time in the presence of the Lord I decided to take  a rest but not for long cause I had to go see this amazing  place ☺

I stay in a town where there are  no bushes around , imagine my excitement yesterday when I went to a place so different, this place was  different from  my town. it was like a forest  far away from the city .

Look what I found! 🙊:roll:

What are you?

image

Well,  well, well I found that fruit though I don’t know what it is, it looked  beautiful  just hanging on that tree. As curious as I was I wanted to taste it but I was advised not to since I didn’t know whether or not it’s  edible .  It had  a liltle  juice  with a spongy core.
Any one with ideas on the name of this fruit?
I’ll  be waiting  to hear your  response  in the Comment  box.

So that’s not all I found  I found  this too but I can’t identify it just like the first one, but I know it looks juicy. I enjoyed my adventure  yesterday  and hope to go on another one:)
Here is a peek of the forest
lol

It’s good to get out of your environment  once in awhile you’ll be amazed at the wonder you’ll see.

From the depth of my heart

The ultimate gift of life is a life.
A life misspent is a life unworthy of this gift.
A life lived in reverences and knowledge of  its’ true purpose is one to be sought after with all our being , plunging down to the depths of this knowledge caves way to the achievement of our life’s’ purpose.

There is only one life to live.
Live it with the Word -JESUS

Live it to the fullest

Live it with understanding

image

Live it with an aim

Live it with a vision

Live it with a destination

Live it with Joy

Live it with hope

image

Live it with Grace

Live it with determination

Live it without regrets

Live it without fear

Be Good, Be True, Be Kind, Be Just, Be Faithful and above all Believe in God cause he is the ultimate gift-Life.

Ciao

A life worth living.

“In the end, its not the years In your life that counts but the life in your years”.

                                  -Abraham Lincoln

I recently read about some highly placed individuals in the society who were wealthy but actually did not live life cause they ended up ridiculed and their wealth couldn’t get them anywhere at the end of the day.

image

A song writer says “Only remembered by what we have done.” People think life is measured by the amassing of wealth, great achievements etc.  Our life years matters, and our life years depends on how much impact we have made in the lives of others and our society in general.

A smile to that little girl looking worn out and tired, can cheer up her soul and make her look forward to tomorrows  chores .

A thank you to that conductor who gave you a crumpled change  can lighten up his day.

It was only a sunny smile, But it scattered the night. Thus little it cost in giving, it made the day worth living.”
                                       -Anonymus.

The helping hand you lend to that old woman would relief her of her stress, making her grateful of your presence in her life.

A simple compliment to that young Lady at the mall would make her want to do more to help.

“Don’t allow idleness to deceive you; for while you give him today , he steals tomorrow from you.”
                                            -H. Crowquill

.

There is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving.”
                                   -Henry Drummon

Get living today, love, give and add more years to your life
