Guess who had her first Hiking experience? You guessed right! lol Me. It was a beautiful Saturday morning, I was up by 5:30 am, I slept excited and woke up even more excited.
I met up with a group of amazing humans called Christ’s Creatives, a friend told me about them and asked if I’d be interested, I’ve always wanted to be a part of something like this and I thought why not ? Since we’re all for making Jesus famous. I’m positive you will hear more about this group on this blog.
The mountain we climbed was at Wuye, and getting there proved to be a bit difficult for me because I had never been there, so I had to make a series of calls until I found my way . I was a bit nervous at first because I hadn’t met any of the group members. First thing I noticed was that I was the only female wearing make up 😂, please don’t ask me any questions, thank you.
We prayed, and the climbing began…
In no time, I was already gasping for air like a fish out of water. At certain points we stopped to take pictures and catch our breath. We finally reached the top of the mountain and the view was so breath taking (literally). I could see various landmarks in Abuja like the National Stadium, the welcome to Abuja monument, cars moving like a pack of cards, it was So beautiful.
I think the part I loved the most was where we fellowshipped. We sang and talked about God extensively, there was a Muslim boy in our midst, he met us at the foot of the bridge and climbed with us. He also spoke based on his own understanding, I believe some seeds have been sown in his heart, hopefully one day he’ll come to the true knowledge of who the real God.
Don’t laugh at me but I was actually scared of coming down the hill than climbing up 😭. I actually slipped and I almost fell, thank God someone was holding my hand.
We took more pictures on our way down and on the train tracks, it was hilarious because we kept on making jokes about the train coming. I legit met people who love pictures as much as I do, yes these people are here to stay 💓.
Would I go hiking again? Yes! Maybe this time I’ll climb a tougher mountain. Have you gone hiking before?
