Hello, everybody! I am John and this is my family; my wife, Suzane, and my daughter, Janet. We are from Nigeria.

Next week, we are going to travel to Brazil. We are going to visit some friends in Brasilia and we are going to spend some days in Alto Paraíso, Goiás.

I think we will go to Pirenópolis. There are great waterfalls in Piri.

When 17-year-old Ruth from Nigeria sat down to write a poem for Assembly readers, she wanted to give other girls hope and to encourage them to “be proud of being African girls.”


I have to stand up and choose to live by choice
And not by chance
I have to be proud of the girl that I am
And believe that the future will be better
If I stand up with determination
If I stand up with confidence in who I am
Then I am sure someday in the future
I will be proud of being an African girl.
