When Dr. Michelle and I performed our Ifa Festival together at Araba Elebuibon's compound in Osogbo last year, I was so very happy to share the occasion with two people who I admire so greatly. The experience was made even more meaningful when dr. Michelle suggested that we also take the opportunity to donate food to the local orphanages.
We collected money from everyone on the compound and bought hundreds of pounds of millet, rice and other foods and delivered them to three orphanages in Osogbo. I was able to withstand the first two just fine. But by the third visit, I was overwhelmed with emotion and had to step outside for a while.
To be a servant is to go into those places where most people avoid at all cost. It requires great courage and an unshakable faith. Dr. Michelle lived a life of service! She showed us how to practice OrisaLifestyle as a form of sacred service through which one's personal blessing becomes a collective benefit. She embodies the proverb that says, when one head is blessed it reaches out to two hundred.
Dr. Michelle, we love you now and forever!
