” As that was going on we heard the church roof breaking and started falling on people. That was all I remembered. I don’t know how I got to this hospital. It was after a while that I regained consciousness.

“I still feel pain in my back and all over my body. But I am grateful to God because I am not better than those that passed away”

She said that she is a member of United Intercessors Network adding that Pastor Akan Weeks was one of the leaders.

Her niece, Nkoyo Ekong, said she was in the house when Etim called her that she should meet her in the hospital because she was involved in the church accident.
