Joining the Church, she says, saved her marriage because of its emphasis on the importance of families. She and her husband, both public servants working with the Nigeria Immigration Service, raised their two children in the Church. They have lived in a number of locations in Nigeria because of their careers. Agnes recently started her own NGO which helps people acquire skills and loans people money to start businesses. Many of the skills she teaches people, such as making soap and making custard, are skills she herself learned in Relief Society. She loves her work helping others in her community in Ibadan, Nigeria, where many unemployed people are struggling to survive.
