My Brother Kokong

By Elvy Egama-Oliver

Year 2007: The year I wrote ‘Letter to My Brother Kokong’ that was published in Misyon in November-December that year. I had no idea what could be next; all I knew was that the story had never really ended. The letter only concluded with a sad, haunting plea asking my brother to come back.

Being used to God acting rather slowly and thoroughly when it comes to a big ‘request’, I found that the year 2008 would unexpectedly bring an answer and end the ‘fight’. We felt God was rather swift with His answers. But how can anything go wrong with God? We felt exalted and at the same time humbled by His divine justice.
