Nigerian Family Facing Deportation from Canada

There is something seriously wrong with the leadership in our nation if a real refugee who has a legitimate fear for her life and that of her children. We must pray and act to defend the life of real refugees. While the shallow words and actions of politicians, entertainers, “journalists” and activists ring hollow we must get on our knees and repent on behalf of our nation and those who persecute the the vulnerable. Christians are the most persecuted group on the plane especially in Africa and the Middle East.

Please pray for and support this family and the millions like them around the world. Likewise please pray for their persecutors and all who desperately need to know the love of Jesus Christ.

“If they catch me and torture me, who will take responsibility for my children? Who will take responsibility for this?” are questions that supporters of Morufat Ogunkoya’s family say that Canadian Immigration need to answer


The Ogunkoya family has recently received a deportation order after two appeals for refugee status have been rejected. A meeting was held last Thursday at the Welland’s Rose City Kids, a non-profit youth organization, to support the family.


Fleeing what she asserted was religious persecution in Nigeria, Morufat arrived in Canada in Quebec in January 2018 with her three children, Victor, 16; Hephzibah, 14; and Rejoice, 10. Morufat said after an argument with her husband about where to emigrate, he went to the U.S. However, considering U.S. President Donald Trump’s highly publicized stance on refugees claimants, Morufat was afraid to move there with her children and chose Canada.


Although she was born into a strong Muslim-faith family, Morufat was introduced to Christianity and converted in 1994. She later became an ordained minister. She claims her father has strong ties to Muslim clerics and the extremist group, Boko Haram, which is similar in ideology to ISIS in Nigeria. He forbade her to become a Christian and has since threatened her life and the lives of her family members, said Morufat.
“He has declared a fatwa on me,” she said, a decree allowing

Abraham Lincoln Bible Unveiled After 150 Years

From George Washington to Donald Trump, US presidents have taken the oath of office with their hand on a Bible.

President Trump and former President Barack Obama both used one of Abraham Lincoln’s Bibles during their inaugurations.

Now another Bible belonging to Lincoln has been unveiled to the public for the first time in 150 years. 

Reportedly after receiving another Bible, Lincoln wrote, “In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Saviour gave to the world was communicated through this book.  But for it, we could not know right from wrong.  All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in it.

Miner once wrote that Lincoln “believed not only in the overwhelming Providence of God, but in the divinity of the Sacred Scriptures” and that the first lady told him at Ford’s Theater that Lincoln was planning a post-White House visit to Jerusalem to “see the places hallowed by the footsteps of the Saviour.”

OBITUARY: THE SAD PASSING OF COMMON SENSE

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn’t always fair, and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned, but overbearing, regulations were set in place.

Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate, teenagers suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they had themselves failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer paracetamol, sun lotion or plaster to a pupil, but could not inform the parents when a pupil became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home, but the burglar could sue you for assault because you protected yourself and your own.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else is to Blame, and I’m A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realised that he was gone.

If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
