    Congratulations. I am very proud and happy to see this next step in your commitment to add to the legacy of our great heritage as a priest and custodian of the culture. My sincere hope is that in the near future steps will be taken to hopefully see the establishment of an elementary through high school for children in traditionalist homes. It is time we stop chritisizing other faiths who have put their beliefs where their mouths are. Many Christians and Islamic schools give their children the opportunity to jump start their life by giving a good education about their faith and other areas of life. Furthermore I would welcome the opportunity to enter into dialogue about steps that could be perhaps taken to address the reason for the extreme difference in initiation and spiritual services fees paid by practitioners who live in the Diaspora verses those who live in the motherland.
    Ifa faith is life, let’s give everyone a chance to have it !!
    I wish you much success and support in your endeavors
