IGNITION633 NIGERIA

Say hello to our Ignition633 Nigeria family! Each team member has a unique story of how God called them to this ministy and gave them a love for the Nigerian people.

Beth Hodge

I have been blessed with many titles: daughter, sister, friend, wife, mom, nana, and, my personal favorite, beloved child of the King. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this amazing team and this really important work in Nigeria. We have already seen God do so much. He has opened doors that only He could open, and provided for us in ways that can only be attributed to an omnipotent and loving God. He has seen to not just our basic needs, but also so many precious little gifts that say, "I love you". His faithfulness is so complete!

Going to the Fair

Summertime was my favorite growing up in Connecticut. Playing in the woods across the street from the house, eating wild blackberries until my tummy was ready to burst, going to the lake at 7 am for breakfast cooked on mom’s portable Coleman camp stove, playing…

What to do with a Fig Free Tree…
