In April 2009, the head pastor of the Fountain Gate Chapel Rev Eastwood Anaba lost his children in an accident on the Tamale – Bolgatanga highway. The accident involving a green Toyota SRS four runner on the Eve of Easter claimed the lives of 6 members of the Fountain Gate Chapel who were on their way to the Church’s Easter convention.
The Unfortunate incident is one that the Christian family in Ghana will foreover recount and sympathise with Rev Eastwood Anaba. In a recent preaching message by Rev Eastwood Anaba, He encouraged His church members to face life, fight and stop cowardice. Narrating the tragic story to His congregation, He said ” One day you just wake up and you have lost 6 children, 2 biological, 4 spiritual and all of them were close to me. 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”
Rev Eastwood Anaba is an example of ”Faith Tested” and he always admonishes believers to remain steadfast, face life, and keep on trusting God.
