A Ghanaian woman, Madam Comfort Adwoa Okorewah, a former fetish priestess who has converted to Christianity at Akwadum in the Eastern Region, celebrated her 108th birthday over the weekend in a grand style.
Madam Comfort has 10 children, 50 grandchildren and 47 great grandchildren. She started as a fetish priestess at age 13 and practiced for 75 years before she found Jesus Christ and became born-again.
A simple birthday ceremony was held for her at Akwadum, a suburb of Suhum. The memorable ceremony was graced by the Suhum Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Margaret Darko, chiefs, queen mothers and other residents in the area.
Addressing the gathering at the ceremony, Rev Dora Boateng, a leader of Charismatic Evangelistic Ministry (CEM), who is Madam Comfort’s last born, explained that her mother had a dream and was directed by the Holy Spirit to convert into Christianity in order to gain salvation, which she did.
