I will like to take this favour to share my testimony with you as God have done great things in my life.
My name is Evangelist Akwasi Obeng Annor Christian. I started gambling when I was a 7 years. I later became a thief.
I completed St. Joseph Junior High School in the year 2008. I was a marijuana and cigarette smoker when I was in Junior High School. I got St. Augustine Senior High School but decided to go to Islamic Senior High School at Kumasi in the year 2008. I later became addicted to drugs and cocaine.
I was dismissed from school and later seek for admission at Dompopase Senior High School in the year 2010. I still continued with the stubborn ways. I was found in the school busy smoking and snatching people’s bags. I was arrested for drugs at the Kumasi Sports Stadium during the inter-colleges competition.
I was wanted for stealing, so I quit school and escaped to Kumasi. In the year 2013 I was admitted at the Elite College Senior High School. I was also arrested in this school for stealing. I wrote my final exams at the Mighty Royal Academy in the year 2014.
23 December 2014 was a day I and my gang were going to rob $45,0000. Around 3am I was back from town, going to sleep in my room with my girlfriend. My uncle knocked at my door and said to me that the police had come for me twice. I picked up my gun and some amount of money and collected my girlfriend, phone and I escaped to my hometown.
I arrived 6am when I saw my grandma on her sickbed. There she started crying that she want me to stay with her for only one day. That same day was the day we were going to rob. I could not stand as I took more hard drugs. My grandma was still crying and I was also crying. My phone rang and it was my gang but I did not pick it up.
Later that day I sat at a beer bar and I was drinking and smoking. I got a phone call and the one speaking to me was a junkyman (drug addict) He was praising me and saying that’s the lucky boy.
I asked why and he said he thought I was dead but he was happy speaking to me. He told me that five guys of my gang were dead and two are arrested. I became mad and got out from the bar and started snatching bags and wallets. The next day I was sad. When any body asked me, I didn’t talk.
I came back to my sense that God saved me through my grandma. Thanks to her I decided to quit and change my life when my two friends were sentenced to jail for 80 years.
I did my best but still I could not. One afternoon when I was asleep. I had a dream and I was in the presence of a man who was judging people. It was my turn and he cast me into a deep pit full of fire. On my way to the fire I shouted “Jesus”. I woke up and I was sweating. I picked up my laptop and posted to Facebook that I need a saviour for I can’t go to hell.
On the 1 March 2015 (it was Sunday) I was smoking with friends when I heard a voice go to church but I did not mind. I heard it again and the third time and something moved me towards home. I took my bath and prepared for church.
On my way I saw one of the drug sellers and he shouted. “Heeeey! You are going to church, then you will rob the whole church” and it discouraged me.
On my way back home I saw another guy and he also shouted “Heeey! You are going to church. Wait for me so that I join you.” and it encouraged me.
I walked straight and I found the church and I entered. I was the first person at the church. Service started and no one sat beside me. Then a guy came and sat besides me and that was encouraging me. They made an altar call and I moved forward. I accepted Jesus and he has been with me ever since.
I have been arrested many times but have never been convicted. I was a gambler, idol worshiper, smoked marijuana and cigarettes for 11 years. I was addicted to hard drugs for 7 years. But I believe that Jesus forgives sin and shows no partiality.
I was appointed as my local church prayer secretary of the youth department. I am always active in the church as I was among the team in church planting in the villages. I am in charge of one of the churches as a church elder. I have won many souls through evangelism by the grace of God.
I was also appointed as the circuit youth financial secretary. I am also an executive member of the all believers youth association by the grace of God. I am currently appointed as part of the committee to work in the Christ Apostolic Church International in the Ashanti Bekwai area. I am also a councilor.
