“All to Jesus I surrender, All to him I freely give; I will ever love and trust him, in his presence daily live” is the song presently on Emelia Brobbey’s lips.
The Kumasi based actress has publicly repented and declared that she has given her entire life to serving the Almighty God and spreading the good news.
Emelia who was very emphatic about her new way of life, made this revelation yesterday Sunday March 30 at the Charismatic Evangelistic Ministries (CEM) at North Legon in Accra.
The beautiful actress and mother of two who is not a known member of the church was seen during the church’s first service, early Sunday morning. After the sermon of the day, an author call was made by the officiating pastor for anybody in the congregation who wants to accept Christ as their Lord and personal saviour to step forward, and actress Emelia was one of the people who stood in front of the church to profess their repentance.
“I was involved in an accident recently in which 17 people died but by the grace of Almighty God I am still alive. I thank God for saving my life from today I have given my life to Christ”, emotional Emelia Brobbey said amidst praises and worship.
Spotted in a green and while lace dress, and almost in tears she narrated her narrow escape from death and how the omnipresent God rescued her. Emelia promised God that for giving her another chance to live she would from yesterday, commit her entire life and energy in worshiping God, winning souls for Christ, and spreading His good news to the world, and that she was putting all the worldly things behind her and live a righteous life. She however didn’t state if she was going to continue acting or she would quit the silverscreen to serve God fulltime.
Rev. Emmanuel Ayim Danquah, a visiting man of God from USA, who happened to be the officiating Pastor, then prayed for Emelia with support from the congregation. The Pastor thanked God for Emelia’s repentance and committed her life to God, and asked for strength for her to be able to fulfill the promise she has made to God.
Life has not been too smooth for Emelia over the past few months. Early last year, Emelia was accused of getting pregnant with her second baby for a doctor who was married. From June to December last year, Emelia had the famous shoplifting allegation hanging around her neck.
Emelia Brobbey was accused of shoplifting a bracelet at Piercings while on vacation in London. Even though she denied all the allegations, she had to deal with the scandals and media pressure for the rest of 2013 ending the year as one of the most scandalous showbiz personalities.
Emelia Brobbey was involved in a life threatening accident on Sunday March 9, 2014 at about 4:30pm at Apedwa Junction, on the Accra-Kumasi road. She was among many passengers on a board a VIP bus with registration number GT 4277-13, traveling from Kumasi to Accra, which collided with a Kia cargo truck loaded with charcoal.
She was injured on her right leg and her chin, and a minor injury on her forehead. She has fully recovered now and has decided to surrender all to Christ.
