... So we started off with His praise chant in English HERE and then moved on to Yoruba HERE.. It's time to do it the Eastern Nigerian way! Igbo kwenu!
Isn't God just amazing?? The way He's created so many languages, yet still understands every single one of them.. And you know what? He understands even the unspoken words - The language of the heart, the language of the sigh, the language of the tears and the language of the smile.. PRAISE HIS AWESOMENESS!
