Happy 4th anniversary in the celestial world.
Rest well my able father in-law. You're a man of dignity, humility and respect. I miss you every passing day. I wish we could have the opportunity to sit together as a father and son in-law to have discussions meant only for us...
When i look at the 4 years that have gone by, it reminds me of how fast time runs and most importantly the values of making a difference in our community- for that is the legacy and memories we shall leave behind when our own time comes to exit the stage.
Continue to intercede for us and enjoy your heavenly stay until we meet again.

Your son in-law, COLADO

Daddy,
you were someone so wonderful and special that words can't convey. We loved the sunshine in your smile and kindness in your heart but heaven saw that you were tired, which meant we had to part. Daddy, those special memories of you will always bring a smile.
Thank you for all you did to me. Rest in Peace Daddy.

My daddy, I will forever miss you. Thinking about this day still brings tears to my eyes. But I know you are in a better place.

hello Daddy!!! its been 4 years now since u left us. You have been there for me, no matter what bad choices I might have made… you lovingly repaired my broken spirit, helped me plot a new course, and set me free to fly on my own once again. There is no greater love than that. You will always be special to me, and no matter where life takes me, I’ll remember you with love.

Three years has gone and it seems more like three days. How time flies!!!. You lived a virtuous life on earth and there is no doubt you are in a better place watching over us.
Words will never bring you back but it reminds us of the awesome human being you were.

Today is your 3rd anniversary as you took off to be with our creator, Lord and savior Jesus Christ in Heaven. I am honored to light this eternal glowing candle in your loving memory.
In as much as we miss you every passing day, we still feel your spiritual presence. Your intercession is felt, and the family has been striving with the consolation and grace of the Almighty. The blessings and favors keep pouring and we pray for more.
Four months ago, God blessed us with a child who is named after you. I wish he had the opportunity to see the wonderful man he is named after.
We miss you every passing day and we pray for your constant intercession as we keep up to your legacy.
Continue to rest in peace Daddy!
Love from us all at the Pearland Palace

How time flies... already a year has gone by. I don’t know where to begin, each time i try to think, it brings tears to my eyes, you were my rock, you were everything to me, you did things for me, you did things for all of us. You left us so early. Nobody will fill up this space only God, daddy your death was a great shock to me, even till now I have not recovered. It was a great loss to us the entire family, but believes with God there is still hope for us. You are the best father and the greatest example. I love you daddy and I will see you again.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.......

Daddy, it's been a year today that I can't even talk to you. It is really still fresh in my mind. I can't believe that I am even writing this. I can't believe that you never got the chance to come to our house. Daddy you did not even have a walk or drive with your son-in-law. Daddy I wanted you to come so we could go pick your grand children from school.
    Daddy, I remember when we had to name our second child and you told us to name her after your wife. Daddy you were so selfless.
    Daddy I'm still in pain but I try to think of the good memories and say thank God my dad was strong and able to provide for us. Daddy you are hero and you will forever be missed. I love you daddy.
Posted by Cynthia Jinya on June 25, 2017
Daddy, it's one year today since you left this world for the beautiful kingdom of God. What is heaven like? I take consolation in knowing that you are surrounded by a boundless sea of love and joy. Your grand baby is already a year now and counting. She is full of life and is always very busy around the house. Don't ask me what she is busy doing. I look forward to the day when we will tell Delyanne about her granddad, a very kind man with an extremely inspiring way of life. Someday, we shall meet again and shall reflect on June 25th 2016, a day that marked your triumphant transition to the Glorious kingdom of God. I will forever love and remember you.

GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN.

Ndi Nkem J.J.A, we are blessed and honored to be counted worthy to celebrate 1 year anniversary of your eternal journey. A year ago, we were in tears but we thank God that a year after we are celebrating in joy the love and the family spirit that you lived and taught us to adopt as a way of life.
We give God the glory for the life we shared. We continue to depend on your intercession and we pray that the Almighty will grant you a peaceful rest until we meet again on that Resurrection Morning.
Intercede for your loving wife for God to grant her the strength, consolation and the good health that she needs to carry on with the family.
Daddy, we keep missing you every day. You remain fresh in our hearts.
Rest in peace Daddy.

Daddy, I can't believe it's been a year already since your transactionz to the next world. Seems like yesterday. Daddy, saying you are terribly missed is an understatement. You are everything one could ask of a father. Since your passing, I finally got to believe in the saying that good people don't live to be old. GOD alone knows why. Daddy, I hope your namesake, Atabong will get to understand when he gets of age. Daddy, thank you for being a great dad.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

We ought to have been celebrating your 60th anniversary today. I can imagine the joy and the lovable conversation that we would have had today...
This makes me miss you more and more.
I miss your wonderful smiles, jokes and love.

Your grand daughter Princess Delyanne would have loved to squeeze your fingers, and jump up and down everywhere around you today.

We thank God for the wonderful life you lived and the legacy you instilled and left with us.

Continue your fatherly love from the Heavens above.
Even though out of the physical sights, you remain very close to our hearts every second of the day.

Continue to intercede for us, tell God to send the Holy Spirits and Angels to comfort your beloved wife and kids.

Daddy, have a wonderful (first) birthday feast with the Heavenly Saints; where your parents and many others shall be sitting with you on the table.

Until we meet again, Requiesce in pace!
With great love,

Your Jokes, and smile will be missed forever, Your leading role in family and community issues are still fresh in our minds and will never fade away. I vividly remember every New Year Day (Mbebafuo's Family End of year feast) we will joke about everything. Your sincerity and frankness were values you did not compromise. We learned a lot from your way of life. All we can do now is make you proud by following in your footsteps while you rest in the bosom of the Lord.

farewell....Daddy Nkem Jinya

Daddy,

It's been 17 days that the shocking waves of your eternal transition reached us. I keep pondering if this has been a dream...

A humble man you were. A loyal husband and father you stood the test of time. A Christian family you built. A selfless servant you served the community and the nation of Cameroon.

Throughout the struggle to regain your health, you remain faithful to Christ, believing in God who surpasses all creatures and power. You looked up to Jesus Forsaken on the cross with courage and hope until the very last minute.

Thanks to your exceptional qualities of good parenting, you blessed me with the most beautiful, intelligent, humble, God fearing, understanding, loving and caring lady as a life partner.

Your demise has generated a big space that nobody can fill. You left us so soon, but you left us with a legacy. My 10 years of closeness to you groomed me with those aspects of yours- a man of substance.

Your little grand daughter, Princess Delyanne shall miss that wonderful grand dad. We pray God pardon any of your ills and grant you eternal peace until we meet again.

You'll remain fresh in our memories-----Adieu Daddy

Colado (Son-in-law)

Pa Nkem Njinya or Daddy as we normally referred to you. Its hard to believe especially as i did not have the chance to say good bye but I have to accept the fact that you are no more.
You were indeed a Dad. You thought me love, happiness and most importantly the simplicity of life. As it goes, “What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”. You will forever remain in our hearts. We will miss you.

SOLEMN HOUR OF PRAYER FOR Mr. JOSEPH ATABONG

JULY 9TH, 2016

DICKINSON, TEXAS

                       

                                 "I am the resurrection and the   life. 

                                  Those   who believe in me, even though

                                  they die, will live, and everyone who

                                  Lives   and believes in me will never die."

                                                                                                    John   11:25-26

 

 

Death is not the ultimate victor for the Christian.  The resurrection of Jesus Christ means that death is swallowed up in victory 1 Corinthians 15:55.  This is the root cause and source of our joyful hope.  We pray in the risen Lord for repose for the souls of those who have gone before us.  Together one day we shall be with the Lord in heaven where there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness.
Revelation 21:4

 


OPENING SONG

THERE’S A STRANGER AT THE DOOR

There’s a stranger at the door, Let Him in;

He has been there oft before, Let Him in;

Let Him in, er He is gone, Let Him in, the Holy One,

Jesus Christ the Father’s Son, Let Him in.

 

Open now to Him you heart, Let Him in;

If you wait He will depart, Let Him in;

Let Him in, He is your Friend,

He your soul will sure defend,

He will keep you to the end, Let Him in.

 

Hear you now His Living Voice? Let Him in;

Now, Oh now make Him your choice, Let Him in;

He is standing at your door,

Joy to you He will restore,

And His name you will adore, Let Him in

 

Now admit the Heavenly Guest, Let Him in;

He will make for you a feast, Let Him in;

He will speak your sins forgiv’n,

And when earth ties all are riv’n,

He will take you home to heav’n, Let Him in.

 

V.  In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

 

A. Amen.

R.  Almighty Father, eternal God, hear our prayers for your son Joseph Atabong whom you have called from this life to yourself. Grant him light, happiness, and peace. Let him pass in safety through the gates of death, and live forever with all your saints in the light you promised to Abraham and to all his descendants in faith. Guard him from all harms and on that great day of resurrection and reward; raise him up with all your saints. Pardon his sins and give him eternal life in your kingdom. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

God of mercy and compassion

1.         God of mercy and compassion

Look with pity upon me

Father, let me call thee Father

‘Tis thy child returns to thee.

Jesus, Lord I ask for mercy

Let me not implore in vain

All my sins I now detest them

Never will I sin again

 

2.         By my sins I have deserved

Death and endless misery

Hell with all its pains and torments

And for all eternity

Jesus, Lord, etc

 

3.         By my sins I have abandon’d

Right and claim to heaven above

Where the saints rejoice for ever

In a boundless sea of love.

Jesus, Lord, etc

 

4.         See our Saviour, bleeding, dying

On the cross of Calvary

To that cross my sins have nail’d him

Yet he bleeds and dies for me

Jesus, Lord, etc

He ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.

Holy Queen: Hail, holy queen, Mother of mercy; hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope; to thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus; O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Queen of the most holy rosary, pray for us.

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ

Prayer of the Faithful

Let us entreat our heavenly Father who is compassionate and loving as we pray:

 

We are assembled here in faith and confidence to pray for Joseph Atabong. Strengthen our hope so that we may live in the expectation of your Son’s coming. We pray to the Lord. God our Father, have Mercy on us, Have Mercy on us.

 

We pray for Joseph Atabong’s family, that the Lord will fill the present emptiness in their hearts with the love and prayerful support of many friends. We pray to the Lord. God our Father, have Mercy on us, Have Mercy on us.

 

For all those people who ministered to Julius Tanyi during his illness, that they may be blessed in abundance with God’s love for them. We pray to the Lord.

God our Father, have Mercy on us, Have Mercy on us.

 

For each of us with whom Joseph Atabong so generously shared his many gifts, may we, too, grow in the ability to share our gifts and lighten the burdens of others. We pray to the Lord. God our Father, have Mercy on us, Have Mercy on us.

 

For all those who loved and were loved by Joseph Atabong, that we may find comfort in our belief in the Lord’s promise to us of eternal life. We pray to the Lord.

God our Father, have Mercy on us, Have Mercy on us.

 

For each of us here present that God will bless us richly with the gifts He knows we need to fully celebrate life and recognize the new beginning which he offers us each day. We pray to the Lord. God our Father, have Mercy on us, Have Mercy on us.

 

For a moment, let us be with our own memories of Joseph Atabong. (pause) We pray to the Lord. God our Father, have Mercy on us, Have Mercy on us.

 

For those who mourn

Lord Jesus Christ, you wept over the death of Lazarus and said Blessed are those who mourn. Visit, we beseech you, with your compassion the homes and hearts of those who mourn the loss of Joseph Atabong and may their hope in the resurrection sustain them in this hour of trial.  We pray to the Lord.

God our Father, have Mercy on us, Have Mercy on us.

 

Let us pray with confidence to the Father in the words our Savior gave us

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Closing prayer

 

Receive, Lord, in tranquility and peace, the soul of your servant Joseph Atabong who has departed out of this present life to be with you.  Give him the life that knows no age, the good things that do not pass away; through Jesus Christ our Lord.


 

CLOSSING HYMN

 

PEACE, PERFECT PEACE

Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.

Peace, perfect peace, with sorrow surging round?
In Jesus's presence nought but calm is found.

Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus's keeping we are safe, and they.

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers
It is enough: earth's struggles soon shall cease,
and Jesus call us to heaven's perfect peace.

I Surrender All

1. All to Jesus I surrender;
all to him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust him,
in his presence daily live.

Refrain:
I surrender all, I surrender all,
all to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.

2. All to Jesus I surrender;
humbly at his feet I bow,
worldly pleasures all forsaken;
take me, Jesus, take me now.

(Refrain)

3. All to Jesus I surrender;
make me, Savior, wholly thine;
fill me with thy love and power;
truly know that thou art mine.
(Refrain)

4. All to Jesus I surrender;
Lord, I give myself to thee;
fill me with thy love and power;
let thy blessing fall on me.

(Refrain)

5. All to Jesus I surrender;
now I feel the sacred flame.
O the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory, to his name!

(Refrain)

 

 The Kids Song by Kaylene, Atabong, Delyanne and Friends


'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
just to take him at his word;
just to rest upon his promise,
just to know, "Thus saith the Lord."

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him!
How I've proved him o'er and o'er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust him more!

2. O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
just to trust his cleansing blood;
and in simple faith to plunge me
neath the healing, cleansing flood!

(Refrain)

3. Yes, 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
just from sin and self to cease;
just from Jesus simply taking
life and rest, and joy and peace.

(Refrain)

4. I'm so glad I learned to trust thee,
precious Jesus, Savior, friend;
and I know that he’s with me,
wilt be with me to the end.

(Refrain)

A song to our Fallen Hero Joseph Atabong aka Nkem Njinya

 -->  SWISCOL COLLEGE ANTHEM

 

     We are Students of our Lady
     Shine the Light before all men
     In the Struggle for our Country
     we shall rise and conquer all
                           
                FORWARD EVER
                BACKWARD NEVER


     In the Spirit of Our Lady
     we shall rise and conquer all

2) Let Unity be among us
    For that, we show our own Love
    It is wisdom that we are Seeking
    All our grace will come from God
                         
                  FORWARD EVER
                  BACKWARD NEVER

     Let us strive to be united
     All our grace will come from God.

 

 

--->   Day by day

Day by day, and with each passing moment,
     Strength I find, to meet my trials here;
     Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,
     I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.
     He Whose heart is kind beyond all measure
     Gives unto each day what He deems best—
     Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,
     Mingling toil with peace and rest.

 

Every day, the Lord Himself      is near me
     With a special mercy for each hour;
     All my cares He wants to bear to cheer me,
     He Whose Name is Counselor and Pow’r.
     The protection of His child and treasure
     Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
     “As your days, your strength shall be in measure,”
     This the pledge to me He made.

 

 Help me then in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith’s sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
E’er to take, as from a father’s hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.
