Even though the Faith Alive Clinic is a Christian non-profit (NGO or non-government organization in Nigeria), I know of three Muslims on staff. Two of them are beautiful sisters—one works in the laboratory and the other is a French teacher. Why French? Because it’s the official language of a few neighboring African countries (Niger and Cameroon) and it’s something that both Christians and Muslims can learn together.
I asked the sisters (Bola and Fatima) what it is like working at a Christian organization. “It is good,” they said. Most of their friends at university were Christian so they’re used to not only living peacefully side by side, but loving and trusting each other. Oui oui to that!
