From the news article:

Long tormented by division and disunity, with 350 ethnic groups speaking 250 languages, Nigeria is rapidly becoming a cauldron of religious and ethnic strife on a continent that has just begun to experience the full impact of Islamist radicalism.

I apologize if you have discussed your vocation here and I have missed it, but what are you planning on doing there? Are you planning on going to Nigeria, specifically? IF so, are you or your family originally from that country?

I am friends with a priest from Nigeria---felt so bad for the folks there. They definitely need all our prayers....and al quada---yikes!!!! Another perspective terror base---definitely another concern for homeland security......:eek::eek::eek:

It sounds like a dangerous place, and perhaps an especially difficult place for an outsider (particularly an American.)

What were you planning on doing there?

THAT its dangerous and difficult is the reason I am going. Physically, not everyone can go, but I can, so I am. To feed the orphans of war. And provide shelter for refugees. And hopefully a safe presence.
