Name: Sinmileoluwa Adejimi

Name: Mary Ajagbe
Fasting from: Food and social media.
Why: I eat when I feel like it. If I’m honest, in the past I have had to stop a fast I planned for a particular day because I woke up hungry and wanted to eat. This had made me then become relaxed and lazy. I want to learn to discipline the flesh and so work on my spirit! I spend a lot of time on social media such as Facebook (..procrastinating). The time I use to browse through photos, I could be reading the word or simply using the time to speak to God and draw nearer to Him.
Name: Oladimeji Akanni

Name: Mistura Okunola
Fasting from: Tv shows and sugar
Why: Because I am quick to find comfort in tv shows when I have a lot to do and when I do not have much to it. I use watching movies and TV shows to calm my mind. And in turn I forget to read my bible or even bother to study it. Secondly sweet things like chocolate, candy, drinks or the junk in life, because I now associate it with being happy, for whenever my mood is down, which happens to be nearly everyday. I know I’m really going to struggle with the sweets part.

Fasting from: Food, Laptop and IPad

Name: Bunmi Oloruneto

Name: Idrees Oloyede
Fasting from: Social media
Why: I have noticed that, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter (i am contemplating whatsapp) hinder me from seeking Gods face as I desire to. The time where i should be reading my bible or praying is the time I am distracting myself on these social medias. Trust me its not the easy way out.. But for me the social media is more of a sacrifice than food.
