accra floods and gas explosion 

Hhmm
A friend shares her testimony.
Agnes Matilda Mends-Armstrong

So June 3,2015 will be a day I will forever

remember……..but most importantly, this day

will forever remind me of the LOVE and

MERCIES OF GOD and His favour upon my

life!…………..I was going home en route circle

when the rains started……I decided to take

solace at honest chef restaurant as the streets

began flooding up and there was no car in sight.

After some hours the restaurant began flooding

up as well and we all had to stand outside in

the flood on a higher levelled ground to keep

from drowning; there were more than 25 pple

there ……WE COULD SMELL FUEL in the water

coming from the GOIL FILLING STATION which

was about three blocks away but there was no

escape……Just when we decided to move by

hook or crook, there was an explosion possibly

caused by the gas from the kitchen and the fuel

in the water………there was screaming and

scrambling for life……..I SAW THE MAN

HOLDING MY HAND CATCH FIRE RIGHT BEFORE

MY VERY EYES………he pushed me under the

water together with a woman and her baby and

every where around me was burning with

people screaming out of agony and pain from

their burns……….the woman with the baby tied

at her back was not moving(she had drowned)

and I thought I was dead because I was so sure

I had caught on the fire (which had engulfed

almost everyone around me) UNTIL A MAN

FROM NO WHERE PULLED ME OUT AND ASKED

ME TO SWIM OR RUN THROUGH THE

WATER……….NOW THIS MAN WAS NOT ON FIRE

NEITHER WAS HE RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE; HE

JUST PULLED ME OUT AND ASKED ME TO RUN; I

NEVER SAW HIM AGAIN!!……I had dropped my

bag, phones, and spectacles in the flood and I

run in the opposite direction with my mind

blank and not seeing anything until i was far

from the fire which was catching on fast and

started screaming for help…..the people around

couldn’t believe I was alive because they saw

the fire…….they saw me come out of it and YET

I HAD NO BURNS TO THE GLORY OF

GOD!!!…………I STILL CANT BELIEVE I’M

ALIVE…….GOD IS GREAT AND I’M ETERNALLY

GRATEFUL FOR THIS MIRACLE!………..I can’t

sleep at night because i keep hearing the

screams from the people I stood and chatted

with while waiting for the flood to subside……..

.I keep smelling petrol, diesel and smoke in my

room when I’m alone……..I look at the gory

pictures of the charred bodies of the people I

stood with and I can’t HELP BUT SHED TEARS

…….GOD SAVED MY LIFE…………HE SENT AN

ANGEL TO PULL ME OUT AND GAVE ME

STRENGTH TO RUN!……..I IMPLORE ALL THE

UNBELIEVERS THERE WHO READ THIS TO GIVE

THEIR LIVES TO JESUS CHRIST AND ALL THE

BELIEVERS TO HOLD ON TO THEIR FAITH……….

GOD IS GREAT!!
