Most Anglican Churches in northern Nigeria have at least three singing groups ( 1. traditional choir singing traditional Western style hymns, 2. praise band with guitars, drums, horns and keyboards singing praise songs familiar to American evangelical and pentecostal churches and 3. Women's Choir, singing in the local language with traditional African drums ). The services are exuberant, joyful, emotional, loud and long ( never less than 3 hours). And never boring.

The Diocese of Kaduna is trying, through various means, to bring hope to what is a very difficult situation. Leaders of the mission outreach explain our strategy for outreach to the refugee camp.
Just returned from a 3 week medical mission outreach in Nigeria. We had some very difficult security challenges, but we persevered and God blessed our efforts.
We are very grateful for the dedicated work of these good men and soldiers who provided security on our medical missions.

The sights and sounds of health ministry in a refugee camp. One of many heartbreaking stories I heard this day: one of our nurses attended to a child suffering from malnutrition. The nurse encouraged the mother to breast feed the child. The woman told her
I am not the mother. She was killed in the crisis. I am trying to keep this child alive, but i don't have any milk in my breasts.
