Hold On – Holy Week Bonus Episode

Hometown is a podcast from Episcopal Migration Ministries and is part of the Good Book Club.

This Holy Week we are bringing you this special bonus episode to share a new song from Abraham Mwinda Ikando and a poignant interview with Emily Jones, the immigration attorney at Kentucky Refugee Ministries in Lexington.

This episode added a new dimension to our Holy Week journey, and we hope it deepens your walk with Christ.

For those around the world who live in fear, who suffer, whose homes have been stripped from them – our hearts cry out. We see you, we remember you, we pray and lift our voices for you.
May we all move forward in faith that an Easter moment will dawn.

“Hold On” by Abraham Mwinda Ikando

He’s heard of a place better than this
Free from hate and poverty
Children play and live in peace
No gunshots flying in the streets

She wakes up every morning, falls to her knees
Prays to God, “Please make the pain freeze,”
Save her from the misery
Change her reality

So, hold on, and be strong, and never give up hope
Someday you’ll get to go home, You’ll get to go home
So, hold on, and be strong, and never give up hope
Someday you’ll get to go home, You’ll get to go home
