The Police stood with me in the office and they said unfortunately we couldn’t get any of them, chairman Clement and pastor Eric looked at me and all I said is It is well. Then they asked me how do we tell Mummy, and I told them to leave it to me because she is my wife”

Tragedy on United from Accra to Washington as man dies in flight

Daniel-Toffey-Jr

Tragedy struck onboard United 997 while in the middle of the Atlantic when a young man of almost 27 died in what is suspected to be a case of pulmonary embolism.

What’s worse, Daniel Junior dies as his father Daniel Toffey Sr. looked on helplessly – in flight.

“He kept saying ‘Daddy I can’t breathe, Daddy I can’t breathe,’” the senior Toffey narrated to DNT in an interview moments ago.

After having sat for a while, the victim was said to have attempted to stand up to go and use the restroom when his movement became shaky, and was soon gasping for air.

One young lady shouted, “we need a doctor, we need a doctor.” At that moment, what appeared to be a sixth sense got the senior father to jump from his business class area and rushed to the scene although the flight crew instructed everyone to remain in their seats.

 

               

 

Unfortunately, with as many as seven doctors on board, and with tools with which those doctors were “impressed” for United Airlines to have on board, Daniel Toffey Junior still suffocated too death in flight.

The flight took off from the Kotoka International Airport around 11pm on Sunday and was scheduled to arrive at Washington Dulles early on Monday.

Bur as a result of the tragic incident, the flight was diverted to Bermuda where all 178 passengers were lodging at Grotto Bay Resort pending their continued travel to Washington.

Jesse Lasuer, a neighbor at business class told DNT how the deceased father was holding up in spite of the monumental loss. “Although he is holding up just fine, you can just see the pain in his eyes,” Lasuer recalled.

Daniel Toffey had come to Ghana with his wife and Gospel Artist son to attend the funeral of an in-law. The wife stayed behind while father and son took the lead home to Pataskala, Ohio – a suburb of Columbus.

The Junior Toffey was scheduled to launch his album on June 4 with Joe Mettle scheduled to attend in Columbus. But now, the mother, at the time of posting this story, was in flight heading home to prepare for the arrival of her husband and the body of their son.

The Toffeys hail from the Jomoro area of Ghana.

Christians should not shy away from politics – OB Nartey

EtDlWUQXUAEJRYL

Radio Broadcaster, Kwame OB Nartey, has urged Christians not to shy away from politics.

According to him, the perception that politics is a dangerous venture, therefore, not meant for Christians should be eschewed.

Speaking on Joy FM’The Reason is Jesus, on Sunday, he said: “I’ve heard many theories that Christians should not even involve themselves in politics. But we can’t sit down as Christians and expect unbelievers to rule us.”

“If that’s what we’re saying, then if they allow and legalise certain things that have come from the Western world into our system, we will be affected as well.”

Referring to the recent debates on LGBT+ rights and freedoms in the country, the broadcaster noted that he was uncomfortable with the conversation, but believes that if there were enough Christians in government, the debate would have been shot down long before it became a national conversation.

“In recent times, there has been an argument about lesbianism and gayism, that they were considering legalizing it, or passing whatever it is, and I’m sure you were uncomfortable. I was uncomfortable.

“I’m sure if we had a majority of us in there, we would have the voice to say our country Ghana was founded on the principle of Godly teachings and that is why our national anthem starts ‘God bless our homeland Ghana’,” he said.

In his interaction with host, Fifi Folson, he added that: “We have a stand with morality, we have an agreement with morality, we have a contract with morality and so, we should be able to uphold them as much as we are having a lot of pressure from Western culture, we should be able to preserve our sanity when it comes to some of these things. And I believe that Christians, staunch, hardcore, stubborn Christians should be in there.”

‘Why do you name your child Owuo? It’s foolishness, ignorance’ – Duncan-Williams

blog

Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has said it is “foolishness” for any parent to name their child Owuo, which means death in the Akan language of Ghana.

Preaching on the theme: ‘It is well – keys to overcoming the adversary through activating the word of God’ on Sunday, 1 May 2022, the founder of Action Chapel International said parents must be careful the names they give to their children since the meanings and spirituality associated with those names follow the bearers.

“God said, ‘I’m going to change the name of Abram to Abraham – father of many nations – and as you keep hearing: ‘Father of many nations, father of many nations’, you’ll eventually become a father of many nations. That is the way God operates”, he preached, warning: “That’s why you have to be very careful of even the names you give to your kids”.

Using his family as an example to teach the congregation, Archbishop Duncan-Williams said: “I found out many years ago that I had to do something about some of the names of my kids”.

“I was trying to respect and honour certain personalities in my family, so, I gave them some names”, he said, adding, however: “As time went on and I began to investigate the meaning of the names and I saw certain things that I was struggling within their lives, I realised that I was recalling and reinforcing past situations”.

“I was enforcing a spirit and a curse and an influence”, he explained, adding: “I was recalling shadows of people who had existed in the past”.

“I was bringing back their shadows any time I mentioned their names and I had to disengage and discontinue some things in prayer”, he said.

“It’s not easy. So, it can be very complicated but you have to be very careful [about] the names you give to your kids and you have to also mind the meaning of your name, for Abigail said, ‘His name means a fool’ and so is he”.

“The Bible says, ‘A child is known by his name. What is your name and what meaneth your name? Do you know the meaning of your name because any time you are called by that name, you are invoking something, you are recalling something, you’re enforcing something; so, you must know”, Archbishop Duncan-Williams advised.

“Don’t just take things for granted. We take too many things for granted – the children of light, but we act like children of darkness. It looks like even the children of darkness are better in (sic) understanding than you and [me]. ‘They are wiser’, Jesus said, ‘in their generation than us, the children of light’. You’ve got to find out the meaning of that name”.

He said: “One thing I like about the Nigerians is [that] they don’t just give names. If you check the meaning of their names, every one of them means something good. So, you have to watch names”.

In Ghana, he observed: “I’ve heard people called ‘Owuo’ – Death. Death doesn’t need permission to take you, it’s already looking for you, so, why are you calling death? Why do you call your child ‘Owuo’? Why? It’s foolishness but it’s also ignorance. Today, let your name be changed”.
