Meet My Classmates 2 

Hi guys. So this weekend I would like you to meet three of my wonderful classmates: Tawonga, Cheryl and Rosa.
 

My name is Tawonga Mwase-Vuma from Malawi. I have worked with Malawi’s Ministry of Health as a Nurse/Midwife before doing my undergraduate degree in Public Health. I chose to study MPH so that I can gain a wider understanding of other health contexts and ways of working so that I will be able to apply world-class healthcare solutions to the developing (health) systems in Malawi. I want to plan and

Preparing Ofe Akwu (Banga soup) in the UK  


Wow. I can't believe I just devoured a plate of my most loved Nigerian meal: Rice and Ofe akwu (Banga soup as some call it) here in Nottingham and that prepared by yours truly. The wonderful thing about it is that I didn't have to break my back to get any of the materials I used. Actually, I've been preparing Nigerian meals (Semolina with Egusi or Ogbono soup, Plantain porridge, beans and yam, e.t.c) since I came to the UK with ingredients I brought from Nigeria (crayfish, Egusi, Ogbono & Cameroon pepper)…

Meet My Classmates 

 



I have wonderful people in my class. Today, I'd love to introduce some of them to you. 


This is Manuel. He is a very jovial and lively person and always has something to contribute in class. He is currently running for Medical and health sciences rep for the post graduate sounding board. 

Hi, I’m Jose Manuel Besares Lopez, and I'm an international student from Mexico. I'm studying MPH Public Health (International Health). Back in Mexico, I got a Bachelor Sc. degree in Genome Biotechnology and I

International Student: First Lecture Week 

                    I had my first week of lectures last week from Monday to Friday. (Henceforth, it will be only 3 days per week). It ran from 9am to 5pm some days and 9am to 3pm on others with one hour lunch break and some 15 mins coffee breaks. A variety of teaching methods were employed including lecture slides, short videos, group exercises, class interactions and an excursion. I had thought that I would find it difficult to grasp the British accent on the first week, but for one or two lecturers,… Read more

International Student: Settling In Nottingham 


By now, you guys know I'm in the UK for a Masters programme at the University of Nottingham. For my previous post on my journey to UoN click here.
Arriving at Nottingham
First thing I noticed on arrival at Nottingham was the culture of hospitality. Everyone I asked for direction went out of their way to guide me. One saw me at the top of a staircase oneday and rushed up the stairs to help me carry my small box down the stairs. Another didn't know the way to where I had asked her but instead of dismissing… Read more

Journey To UoN 


This time last year, I was broke, busted and disgusted. I had no job (had resigned the one I had to attend the YALI programme in Ghana which became a blessing as it contributed to my qualification for a scholarship). One year is gone. I'm in the UK for a Masters programme at the University of Nottingham on a 100% tuition scholarship. God is faithful. 

Shopping List 
My shopping list consisted majorly of foodstuff. I haven't forgotten how McDonald burgers dealt with me in 2002 when I visited the U.S.A. This…

Maximizing The Opportunities In The Seasons Of Transition 3 (14/8/16)Sermon Notes) 

Luke 5: 33-38 

33 And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink? 

34 And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?  

35 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.  

36 And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if

Maximizing The Opportunities In The Seasons Of Transition 2 (Sermon Notes) 

Let's turn our Bibles to... 

Hahaha. Pastor Poju's most popular statement. 

 

Daniel 2: 20-22 

20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: 

21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: 

22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. 

The only permanent…

Yuck! 


That feeling when you're in a Danfo seated next to a dude in singlets who's profusely perspiring, depositing salt and scum on your skin. Yuck! Please bear with me, chap on my right, as I lean towards you awkwardly just to avoid this sticky sudoriferous body on my left. I'm done for. My left shoulder is directly under his right arm. He doesn't even deem it fit to budge away from me. Now, I'm regretting my choice of a sleeveless gown. Finally, I get off the bus. What a relief! I'm so exfoliating my skin…

How To Maximize The Opportunities In The Seasons Of Transition (Sermon Notes) 

Happy Sunday guys. From my last post, some requested I do more of the sermon notes thingy. So I've decided to post my notes from today's sermon. Be blessed.

Daniel 2: 21-23 

21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: 

22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. 

23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my

The Place of Prayer In Faith Walk (Notes From Midweek Service in CCC) 

I was tremendously blessed by the sermon during yesterday's mid week service at Covenant Christian Centre. I have decided to share my notes. 

Faith gives us access into the grace of God. 

Nobody can change himself before God by will power. 

It is God that works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure. 

Romans 4: 

18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. 

19 And being not weak in faith, he

All My Enemies vs Sound Doctrine 

I don't like to criticize churches 'cause there is already a lot of beef from the world. I should protect the body of Christ and not expose our undergarment but sometimes I just have to speak out. The ignorance is nauseating. I didn't know I had forgotten how it felt to be in an all-my-enemies church until this evening.

I have a particular food seller I patronize daily who is quite religious. Since last week, she has been participating in a 2-week prayer and fasting program in her church. She had invited…

Notorious 140 Bedded 

Mention 140 bedded to any middle aged resident of Enugu and flashes of death, chronic diseases, corpses carried out daily comes to mind like a movie trailer. It was a popular myth that once a patient was transferred to 140 bedded, his ancestors were already pulling on his tent cords. They had stories of the massive daily mortality that was the norm in that ward complex. Someone told me of when his mom was there, all her ward mates had died in one night leaving only her with breath. She quickly asked to be…

Hi Friends. I'm alive 

Dear all, I'm sorry you haven't heard from me in a while. I've been busy with loads of activities. But I'm dandy, hale and hearty and thinking of something interesting for y'all. So unlax. I'm alive and well. 

What Would You Do If You Discovered You Married The Wrong Person? 



I've finally finished reading Americanah by Chimamanda Adichie. Congratulations to me. Phew! It was a very interesting read but I couldn't wait for it to end because it was too long (I'm still trying to cultivate patience for long novels). That's the reason I never completed it the previous times I had picked it up to read. The last time I had read up to the 12th chapter but lost all zeal when I discovered it had up to 55 chapters. 55 chapters! Writing what for goodness sake? I shelved it, hoping to get…
