"Your loss has left us dumbfounded! My wife and I were like why?? and in such a short time!!! First time I met you was in 2006 and you were beautiful, not only on the outside but yours went deeper... Over the years we've met but I really cannot say I got to know you as most have here but the little I knew was sufficient enough to stir something in the inside of me and cause me to mourn over such a loss of a wonderful young woman who had so much to live for!!! I can only say God knows why as many have already highlighted but one thing I know is that we never really lose those whom we love, they still live on dearly in our hearts! So on this light our dear Josephine we shall begin to celebrate your life!!! This we shall do for the sake of little Sofia, so that she may know her mom was a wonderful soul and she fought on to the very end!!! To her son Dalitso, her better half Achmed and the rest of the family may you be comforted and we point you to the greatest comforter God himself, may he be your place of solace during this very difficult time. Josephine rest in peace and may your life shine on!!!"

"I got to know Josephine ngoma through her man Achmed momodu who is the best friend of my husband Eugene. We became very close family friends. About as close as friends can get.  I liked calling her “ngoma”…We pulled along very well. We spent most Christmas, feast days, special occasions and family gatherings together as a family.  She was my workout partner; we would call each other often and remind ourselves of our workout schedules and targets…we had same carrier and same employer...

When ngoma was diagnosed with her illness, we cried together, we talked almost every day on phone, we prayed and we fellowshipped, we laughed (even at this moment, if you know ngoma, she would make you laughing). This was a great privilege for us

I have gone through trials before. But nothing like what ngoma faced. And I watched that young woman walk through the blackest night with grace, peace, and faith in her Lord. I never saw her flinch or hiccup on that point. Treatment for Leukemia is no picnic. It’s brutal. She had to endure it all in that hospital bed. Yet when I was with her, she didn`t fail to tell a jokey comment or a funny quip.
Her concern was always for the state of mind of her loved ones. Even when she went through the most suffering, she was more concerned with the state of mind of others. She kept thinking, how is Sofia, (her new born baby that was delivered prematurely due to the essence of beginning her chemotherapy immediately), she kept thinking how is achmed managing through all this. I was with

Ngoma all through in prayers, till last day that she graced this earth with her presence. All throughout the entire ordeal, up until the very end, she had the countenance of God’s peace and grace upon her face. She showed forth the spirit of the Lamb up until the Savior brought her into HIS arms. Thank God she knew Christ!!!
We Christians really don’t die. We fall asleep. The New Testament is clear on this. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. But our bodies sleep until the last day. Ngoma just fell asleep a little bit ahead of us. And she fell asleep with style, with class, with faith, with grace, and with a heart filled with love for others rather than pity for herself.

There will be a gaping hole in our hearts for some time. But God will use the instrument of time to heal those holes.
There are so many things that we don’t know on this side of the veil. We are finite creatures, tied to space and time, captured to a little speck of human history and experience. God is infinite, He is eternal, He sees the beginning from the end and the end from the beginning. He knows all things that can be known. He sees the big picture. That which we can’t possibly know or see.

It is for this reason that so much of life is a mystery. Our God has chosen to not fully disclose His every plan. He instead beckons us to trust Him. To rest confidently in the fact that He can see further than we can. And what He does is always right and just.

While our God is sovereign and sees and knows all things. We can be assured of this. He suffers with us in our pain. He grieves with us in our loss. He hurts with us in our suffering. So we can cling to Him in our time of grief and mourning.

While the wisest among us do not have any answers as to the question, “why” … and such answers really wouldn’t remove the pain anyway even if we knew them … as children of the most high God, we can weep with those who weep and suffer with those who suffer. And therein, we can find some comfort.

I’ll close with a Scripture.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. That whosoever trusts in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
Therein lies the destiny of Josephine Ngoma and it’s the destiny of all who have trusted in the Savior, the Lord Jesus."

"May you find rest with the Lord!  There is a time for everything...A time to be born and a time to die. To God be the glory."
