In the latest video in the Church’s Easter campaign, watch artist Nnamdi Okonkwo shape and create his amazing sculptures, and listen as Okonkwo shares how, through prayer, God has shaped him.
Okonkwo explains that his brother provided the financial means for him to move to the United States. But soon after Okonkwo moved, his brother died in an accident.
"It devastated me on so many levels," Okonkwo says. "I did not think there was any way that I could forgive the person that killed my brother."
After many nights of being in what he calls the “valley of sorrow,” Okonkwo pled for God’s help to forgive.
“As I was praying, it felt like someone poured cold water on my head and it washed all the way down to my feet. When I got up, I did not have any feeling but of love for this person. I couldn’t hold any terrible feelings for him; I completely forgave him,” Okonkwo says.
