Eastwood Anaba Mourns


Eastwood Anaba Mourns

By Isaac Essel

Rev Eastwood Anaba, Senior Pastor of Fountain Gate Chapel has described yesterday’s accident that claimed the lives of his two daughters and four other members of the church as "pathetic" and a "big blow".

In spite of all this, Rev. Anaba, who is now left with two sons, told Joy News’ Sammy Darko in an exclusive interview that his faith in God would not be shifted due to what has happened, taking solace in the Biblical story of Abraham and Isaac.

The road accident occurred at Nasia near Tamale on April 10 when the deceased were picked from the Tamale Airport en-route to Bolgatanga, in the Upper East Region where the church’s headquarters is located, for Easter convention when the Toyota 4 Runner vehicle in which they were traveling in got involved in an accident. The vehicle was said to have somersaulted after one of its rear tyres got burst.

The driver of the vehicle, who was the only survivor, is in critical condition. The bodies of the deceased were deposited at the Tamale morgue.

Rev Anaba said the accident has also thought him a lesson that there are no special people on earth.

"It is a very big blow, we cannot pretend about it, but our faith cannot be shifted during times like this…in times like this you cannot afford to be weak because it is not in your power to give yourself grace during times like this, some grace comes from somewhere to uphold you and we have discovered the source of the grace and we are holding on to the grace…

"By the grace of God we are ok and the prayers of the saints have been very strong."

He described his daughters - Audrey, 15 and Amanda, 20- as spiritual and polite children.

"They are very good people, if there is any blessing God has ever given to me is my children and we love them very much…and their spirituality is unquestionable."

Road accident is high in the country. A news report quoted the Minister of Transport, Mr Mike Hammah, saying Ghana is rated among the six leading accident prone nations in the world.
