It's been a year, today, since you've been gone brother!...Selah!...I still can't imagine that you left us! Our Lord, knew you before you were formed, He already knew the number of years of your life and had orchestrated all this. I have to accept your absence because it was in His plan....We forever love you and we will always miss you. Rest well and rest in peace professor Martin!

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Memorable Birth Anniversary to you Martin!...Happy Birthday in Heaven!!!

Thanks to everyone for your encouraging memories on Martin N’Kambwa wa Katunda's life, since his passing this April, 03 2017.

Martin was a good friend and an inspiring brother, whose death leaves me with emptiness and devastation to extents where words could never afford to describe.

I am fortunately revived by our long hours of discussions, studies and sharing of the Word of God and by his growing intimacy with our Lord Jesus Christ, as a token of a sure reunion when the Lord will appear.

Martin had a faculty of explaining physics and mathematics to extents reserved to only those who received a divine revelation of the truth. He had no known ennemies of my knowledge, if not out of human jealousy because of his God given potential and gifts. I will always miss him, but as a Christian, I rejoice in his acceptance of Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, whom he called and earnestly prayed to, till to his bed of sickness.

I thank God for his positive impact on many lives during his journey on this earth as I am grateful that your good memories with him help me accept his untimely departure, still impossible to forget. I remain deeply encouraged by your friendship and ask my God to bless you.

My beloved brother Martin, you were BRAVER than you believed, STRONGER than you seemed, SMARTER than you thought, and LOVED more than you knew.

40 days just passed today and I still can't believe your are gone! As we have to let go, we are praying for your soul to find refuge in The Lord. Forever, we will miss you and love you. So long!

I found this poem I had written in remembrance of Mr. Martin when studied in Jewels in Kinshasa. Thought I'd share since he's passed away.

-His Notion of Physics-

The gravity of the situation
As Mr. Martin would say
The seriousness of his condition
Would contemplate into our day
I find it rather humorous
His response to our defiance
Our jests, slightly ridiculous
Violating his world of science
His relationship with physics
Much like devotion
Bearing our mimics
An incomprehensible notion!
His life much like an equation
His stories, ostensibly described
Seemingly fallacies of his own creation
With every molecule defined
A vector directed into our comprehending
What would we do without you
And your furious silence; accepting
This intellectual among the few

(September 5, 2010)

As I write this , I am still having a very tough time believing that you are no longer with us. It seems as if your loud voice still echoes off of the classes you taught in and that your piercing and emblematic stare is not only part of our memories. Your unique way of teaching will help me keep in mind all the lessons you have taught us not only about geometry but also about our daily life. Mr. Martin , you have hitherto been the smartest and most positively eccentric teacher that has ever taught me. I pray that in this time of Easter, Jesus's presence may be revived in the souls of all those who are grieving after the loss of a man that will never be forgotten by those he has touched.

My dear Mr Martin, your stories and adventures were always a delight to hear! Your intelligence and ease at which you taught your subjects and answered questions fascinated me. Though your temper got the best of you sometimes, you still had a very sweet soft spot. I saw this when you played with little David.

Martin, my parent's firstborn, my big brother, my coach, my teacher, you left too soon bro! I was just planning to come and see you again this year. My heart is broken! Our favorite brother! You were like our dad, you took care of us when dad was going in business mission. You made sure that we were safe and sound, that we did our homework.....You helped me to see myself as a smart women. You taught me Mathematic and Physics and showed me how these are being applied in our every day life. You were our "Einstein"!....We lost a treasure! Genuine, smart, humanitarian, loving uncle! The one who named my daughter "Freda"....A very dedicated and devoted teacher to his students. He always wanted to impart in others...You were loved by many and many will miss you!....You did suffer a lot!
