“Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground, yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward, l will seek unto God, and unto God would l commit my cause.” Job, 5:6-8.
“Behold, l have refined thee, but not with silver, l have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Isaiah, 48:10. Yes, really mankind is born unto trouble and affliction that is why our story is Gods story. He has a plan to
deliver us through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Agnes Aku Zormelo was born in September, 23,1965, in Ghana at a village call sokode-etoe in the Volta Region, by Mr. Samuel Tetteh in a blessed memory, and Madam Mary Dzormeku still alive.
Because of broken marriage l could not further my education after l have completed Middle School in 1981 I learned how to drive from my father and became a Taxi driver, at the same time was farming, although that was not my choice or heart desire.
Agnes Zormelo became a normal Christian at the age of nineteen, l love singing so l joined the choir in the church, l also love Bible reading and any other activity in the church. In those days we worship according to Religion not according to the Gospel. What l mean is; “Religion” the motivation is based on fear and insecurity, l obey God in order to get things from God. But the “Gospel” the motivation is based on grateful joy, l obey God to get to God to delight and resemble Him. That is why the Bible says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because thou hast rejected knowledge, l will also reject thee, that thou shall be no priest to me, seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, l will also forget thy children” Hosea, 4:6. For this reason it takes the “GRACE” of God to deliver me into the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. According the book of Romans, 3:9-12 “What then? Are we better than they? No in no wise, for we have before prove both Jews and Gentiles that they are all under sin. As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one, There is none that understand, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable, there is none that doeth good, no, not one”. Yes l am saved by Grace through Faith. “For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast”. Ephesians, 2:8-9.
Before l came to know Christ personally, life was not easy as l was expected, my heart desire was to become a midwife but because of broken home none of my parent was unable to bear my cost. Even though l keep myself busy l think a lot about the failure of my heart desire. I like to be nice with people and to please them, but always feel rejected, I thought l was going through life challenges alone, l also fined it difficult to do away with my pains, that is caused by someone or myself.
I met a prophet one day who told me there is a call of God upon my life but the enemies around me were many. But there is nothing too hard for God, He will surely make it to pass. I was surprised, l ask myself whom am l? is it a dream? With all this challenges the eye of the Lord is upon me. But l believed what the prophet has said. The word of God says, “For l know the thoughts that l think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”. Jeremiah, 29:11.
Two years after l met this prophet, l was seriously sick, l had a sleepless night and day without food, because my throat has been choked for three month, addition with high blood pressure, medicines upon medicine, l did everything to get healed but all has failed, l was hearing some strange voices as well. This time my prayer was, God forgive me my sins, save my life and l will serve you. The word of God says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”. Romans,3:23.
As l was battling with the sickness, God used one of my brother in-law who came to my aid and send me to a prophetess he knew. When the woman of God saw me she said, the hand of the Lord is at work, she prayed with me for one week and deliver me from the powers of darkness through the blood of our Jesus Christ by grace. All the sickness has gone including the high blood pressure, thanks be to God.
The woman of God told me as l was leaving her place that, the Lord said, l should go and look for a Bible believing church to start it all over. l did exactly what she said. I became a student of new convert course within a short time l was baptized by emersion, as described by our Lord Jesus Christ, in the book of Matthew, 28:19-20. “Go ye therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever l have commanded you, and lo, l am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

Even our Lord Jesus was baptized, Matthew, 3: 16, “And Jesus when he was baptized went up straightway out of the water, and lo, the heavens were opened unto him and he saw the spirit of God descending, like dove, and lighting upon him,”
After the baptism l have the desire to be a Sunday school teacher, I was trained by the Reverence minister in charge. I love sharing the word of God with the teaching l had from the new convert course in the form of evangelism.
I did some short courses, on leadership training by CHRISTIAN IMPACT ON SOCIAL ACTION, in February 2009, and in May the same year another Apostolic Seminar, l studied,
1) The restoration of the five-fold ministry, Ephesians;4:11 “And he gave some Apostles, and some, prophets, and some, evangelist; and some, pastors and teachers”.
2) Receiving again Grace and Apostleship, Romans; 1:5. “By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations for his name”.
3) Making known the revelation of the mystery; Ephesians,3: 2-11 “ If ye have head of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward; How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery;(as l wrote afore in few words; Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ.) Which in other ages was not made unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the spirit; That the Gentiles should be the fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel; Whereof l was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that l should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ; To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord”
4) Understanding and entering into the spirit of sonship; Romans,8:15 “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but ye have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba, father”.
These course actually helped my understanding of the word of God and the love of Jesus Christ for the unsaved.
