Badiri Moila has the following to say "A family must offer love, happiness, kindness, trust and support for one another. Family members stand together during rain and sunshine. No matter what happens, no one can wish a family away. God gave each person a family to protect, to love, to nurture, toprovide for and to care for during difficult times.

Remember, you reap what you sow."
