Madam Comfort Adwoa Okorewah, a woman from Akwadum, a suburb of Suhum in the Eastern Region of Ghana, celebrated her 108th birthday over the weekend in a grand style.
A simple but colourful birthday party was held in her honour at her hometown Akwadum, with the Suhum Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Margaret Darko, chiefs, queen mothers, family members and other residents in the area in attendance.
Considering how remarkable Madam Comfort’s life and achievements are, we have picked out these three very amazing facts about her. Here we go!
1. She was once a Fetish Priestess
Comfort Adwoa Okorewah started her career as a fetish priestess at the young age of 13. She practised the pagan profession for 75 good years before she found Jesus Christ and became born-again.
2. How She Converted to Christianity
Madam Okorewah was instructed to abandon fetishism for Christianity in a dream!
Her last child, Rev Dora Boateng, a leader of Charismatic Evangelistic Ministry (CEM), while addressing guests at her mum’s birthday, explained that Okorewah had a dream in which she was directed by the Holy Spirit to convert into Christianity in order to gain salvation, and she did just that.
