Our faith and strength was always built on love and solidarity. She was intelligent and modest.

Mom always prayed with us and never went to bed without saying ‘good night’.

She had big plans for us during Easter. On the day she died, she had told us to prepare what to wear during the Easter season.

If mom had 1 cent on her, we would use it to buy food and share equally. We can’t find words to describe her love. She was always there for us.

Kagezi’s daughter, Pearl, breaks down as she recounts her mom’s love:  “Her love for us was boundless. It’s bottomless.”

11:30AM: Kagezi’s father, Mr Sserwadda remembers Kagezi as “our family’s pillar. She played all roles given to her. Her death shattered our hearts.”

On the day Kagezi was shot, says Sserwadda, he was returning from Najjera High School where he is the Head Master.

11:00AM: Slain State Prosecutor Joan Kagezi’s second daughter, Pearl Kagezi, reads from the Bible a chapter on judgement and life after death.

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near.  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

11:00AM: Kagezi’s daughter, Carol Kagezi reads Romans 8: 31-39, seeks God’s everlasting love.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be[against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 

 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
