Tribute To Bishop Samuel A. Attuah

TRIBUTE TO OUR DADDY, BISHOP SAMUEL ANSAAKU ATTUAH

“When death has come and taken our loved ones, It leaves our home so lonely and drear, Then do we wonder why others prosper, Living so wicked year after year.
CHORUS
Farther along we’ll know all about it, Farther along we’ll understand why; Cheer up, my brother, live in the sunshine, We’ll understand it all by and by.” Author Unknown

A mighty tree has fallen! A mighty tree has fallen!! Indeed a mighty tree has fallen!!!

“When death has come and taken our loved ones, It leaves our home so lonely and drear, Then do we wonder why others prosper, Living so wicked year after year. CHORUS Farther along we’ll know all about it, Farther along we’ll understand why; Cheer up, my brother, live in the sunshine, We’ll understand it all by and by.” Author Unknown A mighty tree has fallen! A mighty tree has fallen!! Indeed a mighty tree has fallen!!! Death has again visited a loved one. Today when we looked for him in this dark world of sin, he is nowhere to be found, because death has come to take him away. I came into contact with the late Bishop. Samuel A. Attuah, who happened to be the Senior Pastor and founder of Great Word Foundation Church International formerly known as Gospel Foundation Church. His son Pastor Joseph Inkum was my school mate in Ghana Christian College and Seminary in the late 1990s. The relationship between Joseph and I could be compared to the love between David and Jonathan in the Bible. While at Ghana Christian College and Seminary, I usually spent most of my holidays with the late Bishop and family at Sekondi. My acquaintance with this family has also given me the opportunity to minister several times in his church. In the context of practical ministerial work, Great Word Foundation Church International opened their arms wide to receive me as one of their ministers. I spent time with Bishop Attuah to chat and sometimes joke as father and son. Even when the call came for me to leave the shores of Ghana for Nigeria for missionary work and I was confused about going, Bishop Attuah was one of my key advisers who encouraged me to go, because he saw it as God’s calling for me. This man is a mentor, a pace setter, an administrator, an encourager, an educationist, a teacher, a father, a brother, a disciplinarian, an Apostle and Evangelist, one who was excellent in artistic creativity and finally one who desired to walk always in the will of God in accordance with the leadership of the Holy Spirit. He is a man of God who understood the meaning of the Word of God with fasting and prayer. He used these tools to combat challenges and won uncountable battles over the devil in his ministry. Whenever you discussed an issue with him, he would say, “Let’s wait upon the Lord. If the Lord wills it, we would do such and such -----”. He loved the Lord and demonstrated it in his leadership style by training and sponsoring many young men in Theological education. Apart from the church in Sekondi, he made several efforts to open other branches in other places, ten (10) branches at the time of his passing. To empower the ministry, he usually organized crusades, revivals, seminars among other programs for the church. Behind every successful man there is a woman. Bishop Samuel A. Attuah would not have made it without the prayers, counseling, support and care of his dear and lovely wife Pastor (Mrs.) Sarah Attuah. I would also not fail to mention his Pastors, elders, mothers, youth, and more especially the contributions of Pastor Joseph Inkum to make the church what she is today. Anything that has a beginning must have an end. This is what Bishop. Samuel Attuah have just done and left the world after a brief illness. He has gone home to rest with the Lord. Apostle Paul told the church of Thessalonica not to sorrow as people who have no hope. Those who died in the Lord are only asleep and when the trumpet of God with the great voice of an Archangel shall sound, the scriptures told us that the dead in Christ would rise up first with a changed body and those who are living would join them. By this we shall all be with the Lord. The mission of Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago continues to move on and on, from one dispensation to another, from one generation to another and from one glory to another. The Lord always has His own instruments called the Ambassadors of Christ to carry on with this mission work. Yes, our daddy in the Lord Bishop. Samuel Attuah has carried out his duties and has done it up to a level. It behooves those he has left behind to continue in his works with focus, unity, evangelism, vision to open more branches of the church with the teaching and preaching of the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ, the ability to empower more people through leadership training and continue in charitable works. Daddy is a man of peace, love and full of focus for the Lord’s work. He desired to see people walking and doing the will of God. Daddy, we would miss you but we have no control over nature and cannot ask God questions concerning your death. The Lord has given and taken away, blessed be to His holy name. We would do our part and see to it that the mission of Christ at Great Word Foundation Church International is carried out with a sense of urgency, persistently, consistently, faithfully and wisely until Jesus Christ our blessed Savior and Redeemer returns again. May the present leadership understand that together we stand, but divided we fall. May the reason why we all live on this earth as Christians be that we are walking and doing the will of our Father who is in heaven. “Then I heard a voice from heaven say, write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them” Rev. 14:13 Rest in Peace and in the arms of the Lord God Almighty, our daddy Bishop. Samuel Ansaaku Attuah. “Oh Lord, remember the good works of your servant on earth and greatly reward him” Amen. Tribute By: Rev Godwin Ofosuhene
