    Nigerians Nigerians you kill yourselves. It is terrible to hear that someone left Nigeria with such sickness where there are healing living churches that can heal only to go die in USA.

    In Nigeria with your faith in Christ and visit to strong men of God most diseases can be cured. Some people soo much believed in oyibo medicines ins such a way that they have failed to express faith in Christ for healing.

    I am a living witness of healing through Christ by my strong faith in Nigeria. my advise if any of u suffer from this type of condition seek first the kingdom of God. God is real and can perform wonderful healing do not doubt your faith in Christ Jesus.
