#MyLagosDiaries: Dr. Tony Rapu visits Ijora Badia for a Baby Dedication | Watch



Senior Pastor at This Present House, Dr. Tony Rapu, a strong advocate for social justice, recently premiered a weekly series tagged ‘My Lagos Diaries’ where he shares first-hand experience of challenges people face trying to survive in the city of Lagos.

A few weeks ago, he shared a video which showed that Nigeria is facing an emerging threat following the rise of illegal drug labs in the country.

In the video shared on his Instagram page, the pastor goes to see a young man whose wife had just given birth and runs into an old woman who strongly disapproves of his presence.

He shared the video and captioned it:

My Lagos Diaries

We went to Ijora Badia to visit a young man whose wife just had a baby. He was rejoicing with his friends. Their faces were covered with white powder to express their joy. But not everyone is prepared to rejoice with you.
A middle aged woman living next door wasn’t interested in the celebration and wasn’t happy with our visit. For us, it was an opportunity to speak to her about the love of Christ. Then we went to the man’s home to dedicate a beautiful baby boy.

Through what Dr. Rapu is doing, we get to see the struggles of these underprivileged individuals, and this is a clarion call to all to contribute to the development of the individuals around them.

    See the joy of a father!
    Pastor Tony Rapu well done. Going to places where some pastors in some churches would never go and don’t even know where their congregation live.

    Aww. this brought me so much joy. God bless you Pastor Rapu. His smile is sooo genuine. Am sure the father of the child never thought he would come to such a place. Men of God really need to stop all dem feferity( If there is a word like that) and be humble like our dear Pastor here. Is there anywhere i can get his cds from?
