Moses Heads To The Village


                         "For this my son was dead, and he is alive again;
                          He was lost, and is found...." Luke 15:24

                        It was with mixed feelings
                        That Moses left for
                        Iyamoyong, a village in Cross River State.

                      His mother, Ekaete
                      Was at first, startled.
                     "This must be his ghost," she said.

                     The brave men in the village
                     surrounded him and he explained
                     The travails he had been through
                     And how he is forever grateful
                     To the Johnsons
                     For giving him shelter and succour.

                     Ekaete embraced her son
                     And tears of joy flowed
                     Through her eyes.
                     She had been in grief.

                     The sad news was brought home
                      By Uncle Larry
                      That Moses had probably died
                      In a motor accident,
                      Few months back.

                     She thanked his benefactors
                     And prayed passionately
                     For divine help from above
                     To locate the Johnsons.

                                                                                                                    The End
