Our Big Boom Boom Big News


And oh my yes…  We have our own Home at last!!! Oh my… What a Valentine’s right?


This is how much faith we have, I proclaimed it before I saw it, I declared it ours before I made all down payment _ even when a few hours to closing the deal I hadn’t still gotten all the money needed In panicked not. Gosh I even left the house on Friday morning with cleaning stuffs and a mattress on which to spend my first night in our home, although I was yet to honour my word and sign the contract with the landlord at 4 pm. Talk of stubborn & passionate faith? I love my Lord so much because He is Almighty and Awesome and his Grace is always Amazing.

I came back to Cameroon in August 2014 to above all settle down at last with my boys in our own Home. I knew this will take time and there will be obstacles, but I had been through so much and I had cultivated patience to the point of almost renaming
myself 🐢

And so as it stands, I have the go ahead from X to collect my two boys when am ready ( call this big big victory). The three are super excited and have seen the apartment.


As faith and fate will have it, Alain and I chose it together last week when he he was out for ill-health. His brothers visited same two days later and loved it to. Oh my it’s even close to a river and fishing goes on there. Hmm, say someone will make friends with a fisherman or two right? I mean water cuts wouldn’t be my business anymore too right?

At 3.59pm ( no Magic cause I was counting the seconds), I got the exact amount needed for today…

Dear all, after 4 years in the wilderness, I finally returned home to my country. Six months later,  my boys and I have our home.


A home we will saturate with love, fun and some occasional fights, yet one am bent on making a safe haven and refuge.


Amazing Grace how sweet the sound… I heartily thank you all who have been here with and for my modest person; I wish us all the best, do not give up on your dreams …


Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to Marie Abanga) aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.

  2. Marie, you don’t know how happy I am for you and your gorgeous boys. Alain is so full of faith for someone so young. I feel so good reading this post. It’s the best news I’ve heard in a while.

    Thank God for His mercies and favour. He is indeed awesome. And I’m so glad your faith is strong and you didn’t give up. But you trusted God despite all the struggles you went through.

    I know your new home will bring you lots of happiness and it’s already filled with love and peace.

    Happy Valentines Day my dear. May God continue to bless you:-)

    1. June, am even beyond tears. This home is 👌 and the landlord held it for us for over a week. Some people offered more months than I, even willing to pay upto a year up front, but he tells me his spirit didn’t click when they spoke. I told him I had my word and my faith and that my spirit had clicked when I visited together with Alain. He said his spirit had warmed up to me too. Alain packed up all his stuffs before going back to boarding school last Sunday, and unknown to me, he told all those around farewell. To God be the Glory… Thanks so much for all June and I’ll never forget the warm meal I had at your 🏡
