James Buhari, a Nigerian student who attended Biblical Theological Seminary. James was married in November 2016. In January 2017 he came to the United States to go to seminary. The plan was his wife Debbie was going to come to the United States to be with him while he was in school, once he was situated over here. Not long after he arrived he was informed of the exciting news that he was going to be a dad. That changed the plans a bit and Debbie was not able to come to the States until after she had the baby.
On September 7, 2017 James and Debbie’s son Derek was born. James was planning a trip to fly back to Nigeria in December to meet his son for the first time, and help them both come back to the United States until he finished school. On October 21, 2017 James passed away from a massive heart attack. The next day Debbie was visited by the pastor of their church and was given the news that would almost make time stop in its tracks. He was never able to make it back to Africa to see his son or wife. This go fund me page is setup to help James’s wife and son during this really hard time, to help with the funeral costs, and to help them pick up the pieces of their shattered world. His wife, son, family, and friends could also use your prayers in this great time of need.
