Sunday 29th January 2017.....heartbreak and such a tragic loss!!!!!!

I had already written the blog about a night of tennis a new church and a hike but then I received an email from the husband of one of my English Students and everything changed!!!

I was told that this wonderful woman and mother was so tragically taken in a motor vehicle accident also her son in law was killed and her daughter left in critical condition........

Words cannot express how I felt but I want to share part of my reply to her Husband!!!

I am so sorry and cannot even begin to tell you how sad and I have no idea how you must be feeling but I do want to tell you what happened on Wednesday at the English class........your wife who was passionate about teaching and another student had a really good exchange about some issues regarding teachers they obviously disagreed but it was all very civil and I just sat there and smiled and they asked me why I was smiling and I told them because it does not matter if your views are different you are both very stimulated in your views what matters most to me is that for the last 10 minutes you have been stating your case and all in English that is the main thing you are thinking in English and then expressing yourself in a foreign language that is why I smile with pride!!!

After class she stayed behind and asked if she could talk to me and she told me that she was so happy that I was her teacher because not only do I teach her about the language but I also teach her about love, happiness and paying it forward and that she applies those principles with her family.....I was moved to tears and told her thank you but it was I who was humbled by her devotion to the class and her family I told her I loved her and hugged her......she smiled and left the room.....I had no idea that would be the last time I would see her!!!!

Please...Please...tell that person you are with that you love them every chance you get and always love with passion and embrace every single day....

Yashi Kochi!!!!

Oh Les, I am so sorry to read this. It is obvious that she held you in high regard for her husband to contact you with this sad information. You are obviously doing something very right in your teaching style and be thankful for all your interactions with these students. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.

This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 06 Jenuary 2016, and i saw a marvelous testimonies on the forum about the good works of DR ZAZA. Am Eva Adalwolf from United States. I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR ZAZA did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my divorced Husband within 24 to 48 hours just as i read on the internet. I was truly shocked when my Husband came home pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. Am really short of words to show my appreciation to DR ZAZA for he is a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of marriage. Are you in need of any help whatsoever? Don't hesitate to get in touch with him now. He also specializes on the follows;

I have taught of so many ways to show appreciation to Dr.Ogudugu for is help in reuniting myself and my lover that left me for almost two weeks ago, But i believe that through this means i will be able to let more people to know about Dr.Ogudugu. Without wasting much time i have decided that i will write down Dr.Ogudugu contact detail which is through email: If i got my lover back through these detail then trust me a lot of people out can still rescue there relationship only if they believe and contact Dr.Ogudugu through his detail Website:
