Mojo is a young lady that has just given her life to Christ. Join her as she navigates this Christian walk. Catch up on Mojoyin’s story in her diary entry’s 1-13. 

Dear Diary,

I went for the barbecue😁.

I had never been in a social gathering of young Christians before. I was worried it was going to be boring.

Diary, far from it!💯😁 I had a blast! There was noise, laughter and dancing. Everybody was having a good time.🕺💃

All the fun I ever had prior, revolved around alcohol. But this didn’t. it was refreshing.😄

Around 6pm I was getting ready to leave. Who should walk in?

Yeah, HIM.😳😧

As he made his was round the room, he greeted and hugged everyone he met.

Our eyes locked. His eyes widened, the surprise evident.

I felt my heartbeat through my chest. Sweat began to form on my palms. 😰

I knew. I wasn’t ready for this.😬

I quickly booked my Uber. One was a minute away. 🏃🏃🏃I ran out of the house and didn’t even allow the UBER to come to a full stop before jumping in.

What will my new friends think of me? Just dashing off without a word.😒

Why did he have to turn up? Ugggh!😠

This morning, I confess. I toyed with the idea of changing church yet again😏.

I knew I was being ridiculous.. Its not that bad….I said

But for all my bravado I still left the service before it ended. I did not look left or right …🙄

I stepped out of the church and lo who was leaning against the building looking as cool as ice?

I just wanted to hit him.🙎 How dare he put me in such a frenzy and look so unruffled himself😲. Msheew!😡😠

I made to walk past him…🚶🚶🚶

“Excuse me”

I stopped.

Yeah, his voice still captivated me.🥰 Sonorous😍

I turned around. “Can I help you?”🙄

“I just want to apologise, you see…”

“Please don’t.” I raised my palm to his face “You owe me nothing. It’s all good” 😒

Na so I turn to continue my hard babe waka.🚶🚶

“Please let me explain, okay? I promise I won’t keep you long.”

I crossed my arms accross my chest. My head cocked to one side.🤨🧐

“My mum was sick. She had to get to the hospital that day. It’s just the two of us and I had to be with her.”

Oh o🤦🥺

“I’m so sorry. H…how is she feeling now?”😕

“She is much better. Thank you. Yesterday was the first time I had been out since the day she fell ill. I had you on my mind, but I had no way of contacting you. You can imagine my shock and pleasure seeing you yesterday. I am so sorry”

“I’m sorry I was so short with you just now.” 😥

“Forgiven.” He said as he stuck his hands in his pockets and bounced on the balls of his feet.

“Wow, our first fight and I still don’t know your name.”

A smile slowly spread across his face.

I felt a warmth in the pit of my stomach🔥. I knew I was finished!😍🥴

If you see the foolish grin on my face.🤪 Diary, you would have been ashamed. I tried to do hard babe, but I couldn’t.🙊


“That’s beautiful. I am Jide.” And he smiled again

I had already decided on the theme for the wedding.👰🤵🥰

Then Diary, the unimaginable happened.😱

He SNEEZED HARD🗣️. Right in my face💦, with an explosion of snot down his nose.🤢

Chaaiii!! Fada in Heaven! Ewwwww🤮

While he tried to find anything to clean his nose, I was just spitting and spitting as much as I could. Finally, I remembered, I had tissue in my bag, I gave the poor guy to clean up and used some for myself.

I started to laugh and thankfully he joined in. I knew he was embarrassed.🤭

He walked me to my car and made sure to collect my number.

As I watched his very quick retreat, I wagged my finger at God.😄He must have orchestrated that sneeze to help me reset my brain.

Because just like that🗯️ the wedding was called off.🤵👎👎

Something about having particles of Jide’s nose emissions on my face killed the vibe quick!💔

God truly knows his pikin, I would have entered market tomorrow looking at samples for asoebi.🤣🤣🤣
