James and Kathleen talk about the Ebola Response



by K. Ngenda


Today I live,

Today I grieve,

Today I pray,

Tomorrow will be a gift.

Tomorrow will be a greater grief.

Tomorrow I will pray.

I will pray

and I will stand and pray,

And I will walk and pray

and I will wait and pray.

To whom do I pray

and how do I pray

and what do I say.

“Oh God, I am waiting.

Please come

We are dying

we can not do


without You.”

“Please come today

You’ve come before

I heard of it

It seems many don’t believe it

But I am here


Today I love

my heart is full

it could not hold anymore

and that is why it is broken.

Tomorrow I will love

and reach out to find someone

to share with.
