We said goodbye this week to a dear sister, Chilombo Milingu, who passed away on the first of April. She was dearly loved by her many family and friends, and by all the children she touched leading the children’s ministry at Fountain of Life Church and through Africa Enterprise Trust and the Chimwemwe homes. Even greater, though, is the love of Jesus that was the sustaining reality of her life, and now the secure hope of her eternal future.
At her funeral, the combined choirs of Fountain of Life sang a Lunda song that was a favorite of Chilombo’s.

Nzambi muneni diyi nembilanga –God is Almighty
Hinamba kaleka kumwimbilaku –I will never stop singing and praising him
Hayuma yeneni yananililiyi –For all that he has done for me
Kukenga kwindi hadami kwasweja –His love towards me is great
Ne’nidi namali mambwambe amavulu –If I have money, I have so many friends
Neyi nayandi mabwambu akashiya –When I have nothing, all abandon me
Ilana mwanta Yesu hambakashiyaku –But Jesus never abandons me
Yesu himbwambu dami washinshika –He is the only true friend I have
Chinuku kama nutulu twakufwa –When I sleep in death
Mabwambu jami akashiya –All friends and relatives will abandon me
Ilana mwanta Yesu hambakashiyaku –But Jesus never will abandon me
Kukenga kwaindi hadami kwasweja –Because his love towards me is great
