The Anyaa-Ablekuma Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye, and his wife, Comfort, were miraculously saved from a stray bullet that made its way into the Area Mission House.
The spectacular incident happened on Sunday, January 15, 2023, few moments after Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye had returned home from a series of Church meetings.
Speaking to PENTECOST NEWS, the Area Head said that, while on his way home, he heard a voice whisper to him the statement: “No weapon formed against you shall stand.”
He, therefore, reached for his Bible and read the text as written in Isaiah 54:17: “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the LORD.”
According to him, he reflected over the scripture over and over until he got to the Mission House.
At home, Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye and his wife retired to bed at about 11:00pm after praying with the family.
“While lying on the bed and studying from my iPad, I suddenly felt the urge to move from the bed to the other side of the room,” he recounted.
He instantly obliged and sat on a bedside desk to continue his study.
Soon afterwards, a stray bullet from an unknown source penetrated the roofing sheet into the master bedroom onto the bed – close to the place he was studying.
The loud blast which accompanied the bullet woke Mrs Ohemeng-Kwakye up from her sleep.
“She began screaming thinking that it was the iPad that had exploded. But by God’s grace, no one was harmed,” he said.
The issue was reported at the Anyaa District Police Command, and a team led by the District Commander visited the mission house to assess the situation.
In furtherance to that, a team of experts was sent from the Police Headquarters, Accra, to also examine the situation, but no scientific proof was established.
It was later detected that the bullet penetrated the roofing sheet and the POP ceiling before landing on the bed.
“What makes the whole situation complex is that the mission house is a two-storey building, but it is surrounded by single-storey buildings, so we do not know how one could have shot into the building from the top,” he said.
The security personnel expressed dismay at the whole situation and thanked God for the mighty deliverance.
